Twelve of the Best Bacon Appetizer Recipes

With summer’s clock quickly winding down (it’s almost September already?!?), we are all trying to cram as much summer fun into our warm days and nights as possible. BBQs, of course, remain the go-to get-together.

With that in mind, I’ve gathered together some great bacon-related appetizer recipes. Follow us after the link for the top twelve.

I have made my fair share of awesome cookies. One of the most popular recipes I have ever made for this site was the Chocolate Cookies Recipe. It was a smash hit and has become legend around the bacon blog world (or at least that is how I feel about it). I decided to try to beat my previous Chocolate Cookies recipe with this awesome Bacon Peanut Butter Cookie Recipe. In all honesty, I like these cookies better. I made these a bit softer and jam-packed with flavour thanks to the caramelized bacon strips. For the readers who don’t like chocolate but love the idea of bacon and cookies together. You need to try this recipe, the ‘bacon candy’ in the cookies just bring out this awesome flavour.

Canadian National Exhibition (EX) introduces Bacon Doughnut Burger

year in the last three weeks of summer, people line up to ride rides, play games and stroll through various exhibitions. And, of course, they also eat a lot of crazy food. Last year, visitors to the Ex got to try out the latest in deep fried butter technology.

Yes, that’s right. Culinary evolution has brought about the doughnut/hamburger hybrid. Follow us after the break for the full details of this breaking story.

I’ve been waiting for the right time to tell you about these guys. It’s not that I felt you haven’t been ready. Okay, maybe I have.

What am I so expertly beating around the bush about? Why, it’s none other than this: bacon turtles. It might just be the best Bacon Recipe.

Follow me after the break to find out why the Europeans will soon have tastier bacon, and find out where knowledgeable baconistas go to get their bacon wallpaper. Enjoy!

Weird Al Declares His Loves Bacon

I’ve been a big fan of Weird Al for ages. So, I was pretty excited that the world’s greatest music parody singer (I’ve done a very careful statistical analysis and he came out on top) has started wearing I ♥ Bacon t-shirts at his concerts. This piece of photographic evidence of his recent baco-love was taken at an O2 Concert in London. My grip on Yankovic’s greatest hits may be slipping, but I don’t really remember a bacon song. So, the t-shirt might have to do with the reported presence of bacon trucks nearby: baconmania was out at the concert, selling some bacon-y treats. In any case, I can only support this move, and hope it is the sign of a trend among celebrities to embrace bacon love. Although, to think about it, I don’t think Weird Al has managed to never really been a trend-setter. Well, it doesn’t matter. Weird Al Yankovic loves bacon, and I love him!

A New Entry Into the Meat-Scented Cologne Market: Que! Cologne

As I cook a fair bit of bacon every day, I’m sure I have a deep and permanent odour of bacon. (I do notice that the dogs of the neighbourhood are often following me around, chomping at my clothes, but it could just be due to the fact I’m usually carrying bacon, as well.) But in case you are not like me, yet another company is offering a meat-scented cologne. This one is entirely bacon-scented – it’s official odour is “Pork Barrel BBQ.” But I assume that if you set a barrel of pork on fire, the difference in odour between it and bacon will be minimal. I’m sure, for starters, that the neighbourhood dogs won’t notice that you don’t smell like bacon, really. And they are pretty much the only people you’d want to attract with this, right? I mean, I hope you aren’t using it to attract women.

Seven Things Bacon Makes Better

Biscuits are a staple in the Southern household. similar to how waffle recipes with maple syrup are a Canadian tradition. I’m not from the south nor have I ever made a biscuit, but if a whole bunch of people swear by them, they’ve gotta be good. Call me crazy or stupid, but I love the ones that you get at my local italian restaurant before the meal. I’ve been told those are disgusting in comparison to real homemade biscuits. Let’s see if I can prove them right.

I’m gonna make cheddar and bacon biscuits because I think that is a classic way into the biscuit making world. I don’t want to go over the top before I know I can make a decent simple biscuit. With bacon and sharp cheddar, how could I go wrong?

Summer is melting our faces off, and it’s driving us all huddle by our air conditioners. If you are TV fanatic like me, summer also means that you are probably already a little bored with all of the summer reruns.
