How To Host A Fabulous Bacon Bar Party

I freely admit to being a breakfast lover and I don't know about you, but I would eat a protein packed breakfast any day of the week for DINNER! My husband and I go out to a local deli type of restaurant once a week when we are in town and we generally order bacon and eggs with a side of fruit. We don't each much bread...but we do well with protein and have a love of a good piece of bacon. 

With the holiday season here, we are doing some hosting this weekend and the thought of a BACON BAR PARTY is such a fun and unique way to treat our friends! I'm partnering with SMITHFIELD BACON today and I love the smoky flavor that it provides to use in appetizers in a variety of ways. If you love bacon too, keep reading because I have a LARGE GIVEAWAY from Smithfield for you at the end of this post!

Smithfield has an entire party planning website for recipe inspiration, party ideas and some labels that you can print out and use for your own entertaining extravaganza. You'll love this and be inspired...over at so visit for full recipes and more.

Bacon cheddar biscuits, bacon twists with puff pastry drizzled with caramel and sea salt, bacon waffle bake and bacon jam are just a sample of what you can do with the 10 different varieties of Smithfield Bacon. Not just your mama's BLT with these ideas for a baking, cooking and a fun and unique party! 

Grab those jelly jars and some clothespins, print out your tags and serve with a few colorful sides and you are good to go. Make it festive with flowers of the colors of the season, a few cut up pomegranates, some sprigs of aroma rich rosemary...the possibilities are endless for Smithfield Bacon Bar fun.

There are more than 10 different varieties of Smithfield Bacon so there is something for everyone and for every palate and plate. You can make the holiday party geared towards a sit down dinner as well by adding a Smithfield Spiral Sliced Ham. Those are easy to prepare and we usually do one at our home once or twice a year by heating in the oven and then drizzling on the tasty provided glaze. 

Ready to get started on creating your own Bacon Bar from Smithfield and for the GIVEAWAY? I'm offering one of my readers a coupon booklet that is worth over $400 for SMITHFIELD "Bacon For A Year"!
