These Bacon Wrapped Stuffing Bites are the perfect appetizers to make for any occasion. You can use your left over holiday stuffing to make them.
I realize Thanksgiving has come and gone, however, I wanted to share a recipe I came across this past weekend.
We LOVE stuffing-dressing in our house during the holidays.
It’s been a favorite of everyone’s since day one. With that being said, my children will not eat stuffing after the holidays because the texture changes while in the refrigerator.
Which means mommy has to put on her thinking cap and repurpose the stuffing in an edible-like state for them. I’ve hidden it in these Thanksgiving Sandwiches, however, my nine year old daughter caught onto this and wanted it taken out.
Enter these cute little balls of savoriness. When I saw these Bacon Wrapped Stuffing Bites on The Cheap Gourmet, I couldn’t believe it!
I came across this recipe on Pinterest while searching for ways to hide stuffing. We had bacon in our freezer and just the right amount of stuffing to make at least 8 of these.
Side Note: Regular stove top stuffing of any flavor can also be used for this savory appetizer!
Husband Man and I LOVED them! My daughter ended up eating half of one and then decided she didn’t like them. She picked the stuffing out and ended up eating just the strip of bacon.
Go figure huh? She’s just one of those people who prefers her stuffing fresh, not chilled. My son is the same way as well. What they don’t eat, my hubby and I get to eat. My kids may not have liked these, but we (hubs and I) LOVED them.
I read you can serve them with barbecue sauce, so I may have to try that with my kids. Maybe they will eat them then?
A mom can only hope! Hopefully you will have better luck with your children if you choose to make these 🙂
