I’ve always said everything is better with bacon… and it’s true. I love bacon and not just for breakfast. Bacon is great for lunch on a BLT, for dinner, in salads, and in appetizers. I have several go-to appetizers I make using bacon because I find bacon adds so much flavor to appetizers. A favorite bacon appetizer I make is Bacon Cheeseball Bites.
