Bakin’ With Bacon for Thanksgiving and King Teddy

Standard

Hello Bacon Fans!

Ready for another recipe with bacon that you can introduce to your Thanksgiving table????    Thanksgiving isn’t that far away and this year being different and probably downsized for most of us as far as “other than immediate family” thanks to the virus – I want to try and give you some new things to try OR some thing that are simply too yummy not to add to your “usual” !!

Not everyone likes pumpkin (what??? I thought everyone did!!!!) – but it’s not REQUIRED that you have a pumpkin pie for dessert at Thanksgiving.   SO, how about apple?   How about apple with bacon?   How about apple with bacon and a DAB of “spirits”?    Of course spirits are optional but it’s just a bit of extra kick and flavor after all.    You won’t be weaving down the hallway to the living room after dinner – I promise.
