Sweet Bacon-Wrapped Little Smokies Appetizer Recipe

As you already know, I love to cook, which explains the countless recipes I have here on Mom Spark.

One of my favorite ingredients to work with is bacon, because, well IT’S BACON. As they say, everything goes with bacon. It’s true.

Speaking of bacon, I recently partnered with the Kansas Pork Association on a few creative recipes and I couldn’t be more excited about it. Pork is, by far, my favorite meat of meats and comes in such a versatile array of products. Ham, pork chops, sausage, bacon…can you really go wrong with pork? I say no.

I will be sharing some fun recipes in the coming weeks, so stay tuned for those. For today’s post, I’ve got an TO DIE FOR appetizer for your next football gathering or potluck. Or just to eat at home because IT’S BACON-WRAPPED LITTLE SMOKIES.
