Bacon Dijon Potato Salad

Fireworks are just around the corner and I’m so excited about that! I have said it before and I’ll say it again, I LOVE fireworks!

Independence Day has always been one of my favorite holidays. Getting together with family, enjoying a picnic, sparklers, s’mores, and the glorious sight of big glittery fireworks up in the sky… I love it all! Except for the sweltering heat and bugs, but I can look past that for the right potato salad.

This is the BEST potato salad. I’m serious, the bestest potato salad ever! Should I say it again? The. Best.

After I tried this potato salad for the first time I immediately declared it the best. This is how I will always want to eat my potato salad- bacon, green onions, hard boiled eggs, and tangy dijon… yum. Continue reading “Bacon Dijon Potato Salad”


All-American Cheeseburger

When you visit a new restaurant what is the first thing you try on the menu? I can tell you what I pick most of the time- A good ol’ cheeseburger and french fries. If that restaurant can give me a juicy, cheesy, delightfully charred burger on a fresh sturdy bun then they have my stamp of approval.

What do you picture when you think of a classic cheese burger? A hearty sized burger, ketchup, mustard, lettuce, tomato, red onion, bacon (if I’m lucky enough to find a restaurant with turkey bacon) and pickles. Simple and perfect. Continue reading “All-American Cheeseburger”

Bacon Wrapped Jalapeno Poppers

My dear husband scoffs when I call turkey bacon “bacon” because he will only think regular pork bacon is true bacon. Well, you know what? Turkey bacon is a delicious alternative and he is just a poopsidoodle.

Everything, seriously, everything is better when you wrap it, top it, or drown it in bacon. Am I right, or am I right?

I am glad we had this talk!

I think I have finally cracked the code for delicious, addictive jalapeno poppers. Enjoy!

Bacon Barbecue Burgers

I make absolutely no claims of being a master griller, or even a good griller, but I can at least call myself a partially competent griller. I can turn on the grill and make sure the food is cooked through and even, make sure it isn’t burned to a crisp.

That counts for something right?

Well, anyway, I can tell you that these burgers were mighty delicious. If I do say so myself.

Bacon Avocado Lettuce Tomato (BALT) Sandwiches

I hope that you are familiar with the wonderful world of BLT sandwiches, if not, then you really should rectify that situation and eat a BLT immediately… like right now, I’m not kidding. I wish I had one myself to be honest. In an attempt to spice up life a little bit I decided to do a minor upgrade on the delicious classic and throw a simple horseradish mayo spread on my bread before piling it high with bacon, lettuce, tomato and avocado. Yes, I said avocado and boy is it delicious!

I know this may be old news to many of you, or maybe this is a new idea. Either way give it a try and I will feel good about sharing this magic with the world. Continue reading “Bacon Avocado Lettuce Tomato (BALT) Sandwiches”
