Going to a party this season? Of course you are! And, most likely you will need to bring some sort of snack or appetizer to share...why not make Yummy Bacon Bites
This delicious finger-food only needs a few ingredients, is desirable (I mean, who doesn't like bacon???) and can be used for a casual or fancier affair.
If you like your bacon on the crispy side, turn your oven to broil (I use the High setting) and cook the bacon for another 3-5 minutes...always watch your food carefully when using the broil setting, you don't want to ruin all your hard work by burning it to a crisp (which can happen in a matter of seconds).
Once the bacon is cooked to my liking, I take a paper towel and dab off the extra grease. This is not a necessary step; I like to think this makes these more healthy ;)
Then sprinkle the Bacon Bites with seasoning of your choice. I used celery salt, garlic powder and oregano, but your favorite seasoning would also work.
After sticking each Yummy Bacon Bite with a bamboo cocktail fork, I placed them on my serving dish. I started with a single layer, then stacked more and more Yummy Bacon Bites on top in between the first layer's forks.
And if they get cold before serving at your soirée, turn on the host's oven to 350 degrees and warm these puppies up for (no more than) 10 minutes...remember to use an oven safe dish if you plan to heat them up once you get where you're going, that way you can just pop them in the oven and pull them right back out ready to serve.
Worry no more about what to take to the next work party. Laugh in the face of the festive family gathering. Be triumphant at your next tailgating experience. Victory will be yours at the infamous New Year's Eve get-together. Because now you have an easy and delicious appetizer for your next holiday gathering--no matter what the dress code!
Simple, Easy, Yummy Bacon Bites will become your new go-to dish this season!
