These little guys are packed with so much flavor, they’re sure to be a crowd pleaser. The big flavor comes mostly from the bacon. Bacon just seems to make everything better doesn’t it? And we’re not just talking any bacon. I’m using Smithfield Hometown Original Bacon– smoked and cured to perfection, Smithfield is available in a wide variety of flavors and cuts and is my go-to for adding incredible taste to so many dishes.

I’ve talked before about how much I love Smithfield Bacon, and how versatile it is. I even used it to create pancake breakfast sandwiches, which are a great solution when you’re serving a crowd for brunch.
