Preheat the oven to 400°F.
One at a time, place a potato between the handles of 2 wooden spoons. Slice each potato into 1/8-inch-thick slices; the spoon handles will prevent the knife from cutting all the way through. Place the potatoes on a foil lined sheet tray until ready to bake.
In a large skillet over medium heat, cook the bacon until crispy. Remove from the pan and set aside. When cool, chop into pieces.
Use some of the bacon grease and brush the potatoes all over the top, sides and between the slices. Then sprinkle with kosher salt.
In the same pan with the remaing bacon grease add the honey, hot sauce and paprika and mix well. Set aside
Roast the potatoes until they are soft, about 1 hour. Remove from the oven and top with the bacon and add between the slices. Drizzle with hot honey and top with chives. Enjoy!
