"The tradition of Italian cooking is that of the matriarch. This is the cooking of grandma. She didn't waste time thinking too much about the celery. She got the best celery she could and then she dealt with it."--Mario Batali
Peel and cut potatoes into cube size. Rinse and cut each strip of bacon into 3 pieces. Wrap bacon around potato, using a toothpick to hold it together. Season with garlic powder and black pepper. Bake at 350 degrees for 35-40 minutes. Bake until the bacon is as crispy as you want it. Remove from pan and place on paper towel to drain excess fat.
