Parties and bacon go together like, well…..bacon goes with everything. We love people like Caren that bring the new and different. Put on a pretty plate with a nice pottery bowl for the sauce and wa-la, an appetizer that will have people asking, “what is this, yum?” These can be assembled the night before which is an added bonus!
