  1. Sounds delish! A local restaurant makes bacon wrapped water chestnuts with a teriyaki sauce and charges $9.95 for only 15. Maybe you could post something for everyone. Love your site! Oh, by the way, we are talking Napa, Ca…

  2. Sea salt caramel-yummy. My daughter will love this bacon bar idea for her wedding reception. I just sent it to her. Winning the bacon would be awesome.

  3. I love EVERYTHING bacon! On the Smithfield site, my favorite is the caramelized bourbon bacon. I would eat that by the pound. Honestly, one of my favorite ways to eat bacon is straight out of the skillet 🙂

  4. I have to go with Crispy Bacon Twists with Gouda and Apricot Preserves. Bacon and cheese go together so well and the sweetness of the preserves is the ultimate touch!

  5. My favorite recipe is your spicy sweet bacon wrapped pineapple bites but if I had to pick a second it would be those Bacon Cheddar Biscuits on the Smithfield recipe page! OH YUMMY

  6. This is AMAZINGNESS! I could eat bacon every day! Seriously, I love the black pepper bacon! It’s so good with biscuits & Cheesy Eggs! Family favorite!

  7. Those bacon-wrapped pineapple bites look amazing! I’d also love to try the Sea Salt Caramel bacon recipe on the Smithfield site.

  8. Oh I just realized I read the instructions wrong!
    Of the recipes you’ve given in the bacon bar, it’s hard to narrow down, but i absolutely LOVE the brussel sprouts, and the Bacon twists are AMAZING!!!

  9. My favorite is the recipe for bacon cheddar biscuits. I especially like that they are drop biscuits. which are so much easier to make than rolled biscuits.

  10. OK. These Spicy Sweet Bacon Wrapped Pineapple Bites sound ridiculously awesome and like a fabulous finger food for the holidays. I’m a sucker for all things bacon, and anything wrapped in the peppered kind is a good call for me. I’d also love to try those Caramelized Bourbon Bacon at the Bacon Bar. SO tasty!

  11. What a wonderfully delicious recipe idea! Your photos of this recipe are amazing too. I really love low sodium bacon for our family! Thanks for sharing

  12. I love all things bacon! These would be great appetizers to serve at holiday gatherings!

  13. My kids would be so excited if we won bacon for a year…this is magic food in their eyes because bacon makes EVERYTHING taste good.

  14. These sound so incredible! I am such a bacon fan (applewood smoked is probably my favorite), and these bites sound amazing!
