I love holiday parties, and I especially love holiday party food! I'm a nibbler, and parties are the best for nibbling a bite of this and a bite of that. The best way to make sure your party guests have a great time and keep the party going strong is to serve good food. It's much better to put out a few delicious bites everyone will love snacking on then a full spread of blah food. Want to try something new that's sure to sizzle? Smithfield has some awesome ideas and recipes for creating a bacon bar that will be the star of the party.
Start by browsing all the tasty recipes on the Smithfield Bacon Bar website. They have tons and tons of mouth-watering bacon dishes to match any occasion. The Bourbon Brown Sugar and the Sea Salt Caramel were must-trys for me. I mean who wouldn't love the sweet and savory flavor of those two?
While you're there be sure to download the printable set to make setting up your party super easy. I love printables, they add that special touch to the table and also let your guests know exactly what they're eating. Print these cute chalkboard tags out, cut along the lines and attach to your plates. Or jars in my case, you can use whatever container fits your tablescape: mason jars, drinking glasses, wine glasses…..
You've worked out which delicious bacon recipe you're gonna make, now it's time to decide what else to put on your Bacon Bar. What goes good with bacon? Ummmm, everything! Okay, maybe not quite everything, but nevertheless the possibilities are endless. Just in case you need a little inspiration Smithfield has you covered. I'm pretty excited to make the Bacon Cheddar Biscuits and the Bacon Wrapped Peaches sound amazing!
Since this party is just a small holiday get together I'm keeping it light and letting the bacon take center stage. Just a few snacks will do, like a bowl of chips and a creamy blue cheese sauce for dipping. Bacon and bleu cheese, yum yum!
