Today is the day. I've been thinking about this day for weeks. Not because of the football. Not (entirely) because of the commercials, but mostly because this is THE day. The Be-All, End-All Day for Epic Snacks. It's a Bacon-Lovers Paradise, that's what it is! And can I let my friends down? No way! I got this!
Today's recipes, I have a feeling, will be requested again and again. Are you ready? Wait for it...(oh, like you don't already know if you read the blog title...play along here)...
Bacon-Wrapped Meatballs & Chicken, Bacon and Waffle Sliders
Known as MOINKs (Moo + Oink), these Bacon-wrapped Meatballs will surely be a hit. In fact, I've already received a request for some leftovers. The Super Bowl Party hasn't even started yet.
Bacon Wrapped Meatballs
1 bag Frozen Meatballs
1 pound Thin Sliced Bacon
¼ cups Your Favorite BBQ Dry Rub
1 cup BBQ Sauce
Defrost frozen meatballs and cut package of bacon in half.
Sprinkle bacon generously with dry rub.
Wrap each meatball with a 1/2 slice bacon, secure bacon with a toothpick, and set on a baking rack over a pan to catch bacon drippings.
Bake at 375 degrees for 20-25 minutes or until bacon is cooked the way you like it.
Brush with BBQ sauce and cook for another 5 minutes.
Let cool slightly on rack, serve warm or cold.
I ran across this below recipe on Facebook. I've been saving the recipe for a month, just waiting to make them. I'm drooling.
Chicken, Bacon & Waffle Sliders
1 box of frozen mini waffles
10 chicken tenders, cooked and chopped in half
1/2 package of bacon, cooked and divided into half
Cook bacon in a pan or in the oven on a broiling pan or a cooling rack set on top of a cookie sheet, set to 350 degrees for 20 minutes or until desired crispiness. Drain on a paper towel and break in half. Set aside.
Slice your cooked chicken fingers into 3-4 pieces each. Break your cooked mini waffles apart.
Sandwich 1 piece of chicken topped with 2 bacon halves between 2 mini waffles. Secure with a toothpick. Drizzle with maple syrup and serve warm.
