15 Super Bowl Bacon Recipes To Get Your Taste Buds Excited For The Big Game
The big Super Bowl 50 is right around the corner and for me that means one thing — bacon. If ever there was a time to stuff your face with bacon, it’s game day, so I’m bringing you a list of Super Bowl bacon recipes to get your taste buds excited for the big game.
There are no bounds to my love for bacon. I am one of those die-hard firm believers that bacon can make anything better. Chocolate? Yep. Doughnuts? Definitely. Ice Cream? Honestly yes, I’ve had it, and it rocked my world. Of course, that’s only the sweet stuff. Don’t even get me started on the endless possibilities bacon holds for improving anything savory.
When my friends and I get together for the Super Bowl, it’s always a massive feast. Usually there’s some sort of theme, but all we’ve been able to think about lately is bacon. Voila, bacon-themed Super Bowl menu decided. Seriously, every single one of these recipes will be showing up at our get-together, and you better believe I’ll be eating a little bit of everything. So when halftime rolls around and you’re jamming out to Coldplay, make sure the bacon hasn’t run out, and pack in that pig.
