Last summer my garden was producing more jalapenos than I knew what to do with.  Jalapeno poppers filled with creamy cheese and wrapped in smoky bacon quickly became a family favorite.  Who knew there are so many delicious ways to take bacon to the next level.  Bacon-wrapped cinnamon rolls?  You better believe that is happening in the morning! 

This list includes 25 recipes all wrapped in bacon, everything from veggies, meats, fruits, even mac & cheese.  Is there anything you CAN’T wrap in bacon?

Emily discovered bacon-wrapped Medjool dates on a recent solo trip to Utah.  She came home raving about them, which was surprising because she is usually a very picky eater.  Apparently, that sweet meets salty meets fatty meets smoky flavor combo pleases even the pickiest palates.

When in doubt, wrap it in bacon, right?  That definitely applies to eating your vegetables.  We are guilty of this at the fire station.  Not that anyone is complaining.  I shared our station favorite Bacon Baked Beans with my family and even my kids ask for seconds.

While this may not be an exhaustive list of all the things you can wrap in bacon, I’ve yet to find a flavor combo that doesn’t work.  People have recently been going crazy for peanut butter and bacon burgers.  I haven’t tried them… yet… but I don’t see why it wouldn’t work!
