OOOOOooooo Look what I found over at Kareneskew‘s Blog! Yummy BBQ Bacon Wrapped Meatballs! Just in time for all the holiday parties I will be attending this season.
If you would like to try them here is the Recipe!
1 lb. ground hamburger (95% lean)
1 to 2 cups of BBQ Sauce (I use Head Country)
1/2 to 3/4 pkg. of Stove Top Sage Dressing (dry – do not prepare)
1 pkg. Farmland Maple Glazed Bacon (MUST use maple flavored!)
Salt and Pepper
Pam cooking spray
Heat oven to 350 degrees. Coat bottom of 13 x 9″ glass pan with Pam cooking spray. In a large mixing bowl, add raw ground beef, BBQ Sauce (as much as you like to really coat it) and the Stove Top stuffing (I usually smash it up a bit before I open the bag). Mix well (I use my hands and really “knead” it around). Make 1 1/2″ balls of mixture and then wrap a whole raw piece of bacon around both ways and set in pan (no need to use toothpicks if you place the bacon with the end down underneath the meatball). Give a squirt on the top of each meatball of additional BBQ sauce. Then cook at 350 degrees for approximately one hour. Use tongs and move meatballs to a serving dish (to remove grease from bottom of dish.)
Who would not want some BBQ Bacon Wrapped Meatballs? I certainly can not think of one person who would not just fall in love with these tiny bites of Yumminess!
These cute little bite sized corn dogs were always a big hit with my kids when they were younger, and even today as adults if I make these appetizers they are the first things gone!

4 oz chipotle or habañero Cheddar cheese, shredded (1 cup)
Heat oven to 400°F. Spray 36 mini muffin cups with cooking spray.
In medium bowl, stir together cornbread mix, milk, melted butter and eggs until blended (batter will be thin). Stir in chile pepper powder and green chiles. Fill each muffin cup half full.
Cut sausage into 36 (1/2-inch) slices; place 1 slice in batter in center of each muffin cup. Top evenly with cheese.
Bake 10 minutes or until cornbread is set. Cool 5 minutes. Serve warm.

Loaded Smashed Sweet Potatoes
Loaded Smashed Sweet Potatoes
2 strips thick bacon
3 large sweet potatoes, cut into quarters
1/4 cup olive oil
Salt and pepper
1/2 cup sour cream
4 ounces cheddar cheese, grated
Cook bacon until crispy, either in a skillet or baked in the oven. Once the bacon is crispy, let cool and chop into bits for topping. Set aside.
Preheat oven to 350ºF. Cut off the ends of the sweet potatoes, then cut them into quarters. Pour olive oil on a baking sheet and rub potatoes on both sides to coat. Sprinkle potatoes with salt and pepper.
Bake potato pieces for 25-30 minutes until they are fork tender. Then let cool briefly until you can handle them.
Use a small plate to smash each potato down a bit. Return smashed potatoes to baking sheet.
Bake smashed potatoes a second time for 10 minutes to crisp them up a bit.
Remove potatoes from oven and top with sour cream, shredded cheese, crispy bacon bits, and fresh chives.
