I think bacon is at an all time high in the popularity contest. I don't know a single person who doesn't love bacon. Not one. Which is why it's often at the top of my list as an ingredient in my holiday appetizers. It seems like friends and family are gathering often this time of year and food is usually at the center of it all. I am always looking for those crowd pleasers and bacon never disappoints! I've partnered with Smithfield to share some ways that you can treat your family and friends to easy-to-make, delicious bacon recipes. Smithfield has created a fun twist on holiday entertaining that you can recreate at home. It's easy for you to create your own Bacon Bar with free printable labels, decor ideas and recipe instructions so you can give your Bacon Bar a personal touch. You can even enter to win one Smithfield Bacon For a Year coupon booklet valued over $400! Just keep reading and I will tell you how!


The holiday parties are in full swing. I was asked to bring an appetizer to a recent Christmas party. I wasn't as prepared as I would have liked, but it was a snap to pull things that I already had in my refrigerator and pantry together to create an appetizer that was gone in minutes! I always have Smithfield Bacon in my refrigerator. One of our go-to family favorite meals is breakfast for dinner. We fry some eggs, cook some bacon and whip up some pancakes or crepes and there is a meal that everyone in the family loves. Bacon keeps in the fridge for so long, that it's a staple that I like to have on hand. And boy was I glad that I did! I pulled out some pineapple chunks from my pantry, got my trusty sidekick nearby {seriously, our dog isn't far away when the bacon come out!} and wrapped the pineapple in bacon and secured it with a toothpick. I used sweet and sour marinade and poured that on top and cooked them in the oven for about 30 minutes on 375 degrees. Your sweet and sour bacon wrapped pineapple will be done when the bacon is cooked and the marinade is bubbly.


While the bacon wrapped pineapple was cooking, I went to the Smithfield website and printed off their ready-made labels to help me give my appetizer a more personal touch. Print the labels onto thick card stock and then cut them into their desired shapes.


I used a white colored pencil to write on a blank label and attached it with a clothespin to the plate. You can also use twine to tie the labels onto the jars.


While on the Smithfield website, check out the more than 10 different varieties of Smithfield Bacon. There is something for everyone! You will also find recipes for Smithfield Bacon so that you can enjoy your bacon in a variety of ways. Find a recipe for tangy bacon jam or for Caramelized Bourbon Bacon. Drizzle your bacon with caramel and sea salt or twist your bacon with Gouda and apricot jam in a puff pastry crust.


Try your own Bacon Bar or create a new Smithfield Bacon recipe for your next holiday gathering. Take your entertaining to a whole new level!
