Bacon Appetizers

Isn't bacon wonderful? When it comes to bacon snack recipes and bacon appetizer recipes, the sky is the limit! There's something about the salty flavor, the light and crispy texture, the way it bubbles up when it cooks and that incredible aroma that fills the house while it's cooking that makes it simply irresistable. The flavor and texture of bacon combines incredibly well with an endless list of foods. In fact, some restaurants exist that dedicate themselves bacon, making sure every item on the menu is in one way or another made with bacon! It is no surprise that when it comes to appetizer ideas for parties, bacon appetizers are so popular and get devoured so quickly when they're served! One well-known way to
serve bacon as a party appetizer is to wrap various foods with strips (or cut strips) of bacon, and perhaps flavoring those bacon-wrapped foods with a sauce or flavoring of some sort, then baking them until the bacon crisps. Bacon wrapped appetizers also usually make perfect bite-size finger food appetizers, and they're almost always incredibly easy to make. Some examples of bacon wrapped appetizers are bacon wrapped asparagus, bacon wrapped pineapple, bacon wrapped hot dogs or cocktail weiners, bacon wrapped cheese, bacon wrapped scallops, Bacon Wrapped Crackers, Bacon Wrapped Water Chestnuts and bacon wrapped shrimp. No doubt that's only the beginning of a long list of delicious bacon wrapped appetizers! In addition to wrapping various bite-size foods with bacon, bacon can also be crumbled and added to foods like Deviled Eggs or Marinated Strawberries with Cheese and Bacon , as well as numerous other appetizers. Believe it or not, another popular bacon appetizer or dessert is chocolate covered bacon! Though this bacon page modestly begins with three very tasty bacon appetizers (or appetizers with bacon), bacon lovers can rest assured that as time moves forward, plenty more bacon appetizer recipes will be added to this collection, so be sure to check back often!
