Honey Bacon Roasted Potatoes are the perfect side dish that combines the sweetness of honey with the savory goodness of bacon and crispy roasted potatoes. This dish is not only simple to prepare but also a crowd-pleaser that pairs well with a variety of main courses. Here’s how to create this mouthwatering delight.


  • 4-5 medium-sized russet potatoes, washed and diced into bite-sized pieces
  • 6-8 slices of bacon, chopped into small pieces
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • Salt and black pepper to taste
  • Chopped fresh parsley (optional, for garnish)


1. Preheat Your Oven:

  • Preheat your oven to 425°F (220°C). Place a large baking sheet or a roasting pan in the oven as it preheats.

2. Prepare the Potatoes:

  • Wash the potatoes thoroughly and dice them into bite-sized pieces. You can leave the skins on for extra texture and flavor.

3. Cook the Bacon:

  • In a large skillet over medium heat, cook the chopped bacon until it becomes crispy. This usually takes about 5-7 minutes.
  • Remove the bacon pieces using a slotted spoon and place them on a plate lined with paper towels to drain excess grease. Set aside.

4. Prepare the Honey Bacon Coating:

  • In a small mixing bowl, combine the olive oil, honey, garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, salt, and black pepper. Mix well to create a flavorful coating.

5. Coat the Potatoes:

  • In a large mixing bowl, toss the diced potatoes with the honey bacon coating until they are evenly coated.

6. Roast the Potatoes:

  • Carefully remove the hot baking sheet or roasting pan from the preheated oven. Spread the honey-coated potatoes in an even layer on the hot pan.
  • Place the pan back in the oven and roast the potatoes for about 20-25 minutes, or until they are golden brown and tender. Be sure to stir or shake the pan every 10 minutes for even cooking.

7. Add the Crispy Bacon:

  • When the potatoes are done roasting, remove them from the oven and immediately sprinkle the crispy bacon pieces over the top. This allows the bacon to adhere to the potatoes.

8. Garnish and Serve:

  • If desired, garnish your Honey Bacon Roasted Potatoes with chopped fresh parsley for a burst of color and freshness.
  • Serve the dish hot as a delightful side to your main course.

Honey Bacon Roasted Potatoes are a delicious side dish with a harmonious blend of sweet and savory flavors. The crispy bacon adds a smoky richness to the roasted potatoes, while the honey adds a lovely sweetness. This dish is ideal for family dinners, gatherings, or any other occasion where you want to add a delicious touch to your meal. Enjoy!
