Want to make a tasty appetizer with bacon? Check out this epic list for the BEST bacon appetizer recipes!

Tonight, the Kansas City Chiefs have their home opener and I could not be more excited! Football season brings good things with it. Fall weather, lots of fun, and great food shared with family and friends.

Before my son came along, we were Chiefs season ticket holders. On Sunday, Arrowhead Stadium was church. The atmosphere inside and outside of Arrowhead is something everyone should experience at least once in their lifetime. It’s electric. 

My favorite part of football season is not necessary the games themselves, it’s the tailgating and sharing good food with friends. I have fun just thinking about what food I’ll bring to a tailgate, and scouring the web for ideas!  Appetizers and recipes that incorporate bacon are always crowd-pleasers, so that’s usually what I bring.
