Everything is better with bacon right?

I can remember anxiously wondering when my 16th birthday would ever get here. I wanted a drivers license and my new found freedom in the worst way and time just seemed to drag by. Well, be careful what you wish for right? Once I had children of my own, time sped up and there was no looking back!

Recipes don’t have to be time-consuming or difficult to be good. The one thing that is important is to use good quality ingredients. When I had the opportunity to work with Cloverdale Foods, I learned that they are a 100-year-old family owned company whose sole focus is pork products with unsurpassed quality and flavor. You can use their store finder to find their amazing products in your area!

Everything can be put together in advance or to make in a nano second when you’re ready to put it on the table. That makes it perfect for “Bacon Lovers Day” on August 20th, entertaining or a tailgate party too! Everyone will be asking you how you made them.

That’s no easy feat, as a neighbor to Iowa, I know they know their pork! They also have a wide selection of brats and sausages to choose from. Next time around I’ll be making this recipe with their Jalapeño Cheddar Sausage! The avocado pico served as a fresh balance to a big meat sandwich.

Don’t have time to make it now? Pin it for later!

John invited a friend to dinner. I don’t usually invite our friends over to be my recipe guinea pig but he was very happy that we did. We all loved this sandwich.

I want to thank Cloverdale Foods Company for not only supporting Hostess At Heart but for introducing us to their high-quality products.

Speaking of time flying by, we are looking at tailgating parties for the upcoming football season and then the Holidays folks! I will definitely be trying some more Cloverdale Meats products and bringing you some great recipes.
