Bacon Day Roundup

My favorite bacon recipes all in one place for International Bacon Day


Oops I jut realized my picture has a mistake...It should read August 30th.  Please forgive the mistake.


So apparently bacon day is the Saturday before Labor Day.  This year it falls on Saturday August 30th.  I'm excited about bacon day because a). it's bacon and b). it's a great way to kick off the first weekend of college football (yay, football's back!).  So here are my favorite, personal, bacon recipes.

Bacon Wrapped French Toast



Bacon Cheeseburger Casserole



Bacon Pecan Blueberry Salad



Bacon Wrapped Potato Wedges



Bacon Nachos



Bacon Pecan Maple Sticky Buns



Bacon Egg and Cheese Spring Rolls




Have a happy bacon day and enjoy college football with a bacon snack.

Loaded Baked Potato Dip

A dip made with sour cream, green onions, cheese, and bacon bits.  It's like a loaded baked potato on a chip.

I don't know if the rest of you are as excited as I am but college football starts this weekend.  I love watching college football (I like NFL too).  There are only a few teams I really care about (my alma mater and my husbands alma maters--he has a PhD so there are a few) and the rest I watch jeering against a rival or just have on in the background hoping for a good game.  My husband even brings our second TV into the living room so we can watch 2 games at once.

Besides the football, I love the food.  Usually it's just me and my husband but occasionally a friend or two and I love having some kind of football snack for us.  Dips are an especially great gameday snack and this one is one of my new favorites.  I love a loaded baked potato and that's what you get with this dip.  It's the perfect addition to just about any potato product.  I dipped chips but it would also taste great with fries, tots, wedges, skins, even mixed in with mashed potatoes.  Try some at your next football gathering or any gathering.

Place the sour cream into a large bowl and stir in all the other ingredients.  Add a hand full at a time and stir until it looks fully loaded to you. Reserve some of each to sprinkle over the top as a garnish (optional).

Serve with your favorite potato product.  Enjoy.
