Happy Birthday, Canada!
Okay, now that we have that little bit of patriotism out of the way, here’s a little treat. A fantastically delicious treat, made of two of my favourite foods ever. Bacon, oh how I love you, my smoky salty crispy friend. And guacamole, you creamy, dreamy combo of avocados, garlic, jalapenos and lime. I’ve been thinking of putting these two together in some sort of appetizer for a while now. And then the perfect opportunity arose, in the form of a guest post on none other than 365 Days of Bacon. Yes, that is the name of the blog. A blog that devotes every day to bacon, what’s not to love?
The blogger behind said blog is a little bit mysterious, being a touch internet-shy. She did elucidate her real name, upon my request, but I won’t share it with you to respect her privacy. Suffice it to say, she’s nice, funny, and I have few qualms about developing a recipe around bacon. Are you kidding? You don’t have to ask me twice. You barely have to ask me once, because the minute the word bacon is out of your mouth, I am shouting YES!
These are the perfect little hand-held bacon appetizer. The bacon cups shrink a bit as they cook and the bottoms may have a few gaps. But that’s okay, as long as you make your guacamole nice and thick, it stays in there perfectly. Who needs high carb tortilla chips when you have mini bacon cups?
