Have you ever heard of the movie, Where the Red Fern Grows? I can’t really remember anything other than a dog and I cried my eyes out at the end, but that movie has popped into my head all night tonight so now I’m on the hunt. Is there anywhere to watch it? I am pretty sure it was for kids, right? So our girls could watch it? Anyway, this post has nothing to do with dogs, but bbq chicken bacon bombs will definitely be one of those recipes that keeps popping into your mind.
The other night we were shooting off old favorite tv shows with our good friends while I convinced them to take more and more of the recipes I’d been testing all day. These cheesy little bacon bombs were one of our favorites and perfect for serving up at a fun Halloween party. And why not bust out a little tv trivia with your friends while you’re at it?
I mean, who wouldn’t want to remember classics like, Gummy Bears, Chip and Dale Rescue Rangers, Macgyver, and Touched By An Angel? Oh yeah buddy, nothing like fried bread stuffed with BBQ chicken, bacon and cheese then drizzle with a little extra BBQ sauce. It was so much fun and I’m so full I’m pretty sure my pants are about to bust the button clean off.
