The World’s Second Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party – a study in bacon

A perfect tailgating and game-watching party typically has three components: good weather, good game and good food. This past Saturday we had one of three. But, a good friend who owns a luxury fishing resort has taught me the importance of making sure you do a good job on the things you can control to offset the things you can’t.  In his case that means making sure there is good liquor and nice cigars waiting for visitors who may not have caught any fish.  In our case that means making sure there is plenty of bacon-wrapped food for guests to enjoy while freezing their tails off and watching the Dawgs totally roll over for the Gators.

Cheesy Bacon Bombs – quite possibly the best recipe ever. You take a cube of mozzerala, wrap it in a bit of refrigerated biscuit, and wrap that in bacon. Then you fry it.
