Bacon+Club Crackers+Parmesan=SCORE!

A Gameday Style reader, Tricia, recently presented a question..

"what is a good tailgating recipe I can make with bacon?"

Right away, I thought of the classic bacon and club cracker appetizer, of which The Pioneer Woman has perfected in "Holiday Bacon Appetizers".   I think it helped Tricia, a busy mama of 4, that the recipe has only 3 delicious ingredients.  
Bacon.  Club Crackers.  Parmesan. 

Tricia went about her business, preparing these beauties for her tailgate celebrating the Missouri Tigers, and taking some great photos of her project.

This is probably not nearly enough for your tailgate.
I would guess 25 pans would do the trick. haha
Tricia said hers were gone in a flash.


Tricia's kitchen smelled divine right about now.


Here is the recipe...I think we can change the name to Tailgate Bacon Appetizers.

Holiday Tailgate Bacon Appetizers

Ingredients

  • 1 package Club Crackers
  • 1 pound Thin Sliced Bacon (or More Depending On Number Of Crackers)
  • Grated Parmesan Cheese
  • Optional Alternative: Brown Sugar Instead Of Parmesan Cheese

Instructions

Lay crackers (as many as you want) face up on a cookie sheet.
Scoop about 1 teaspoon of grated Parmesan cheese onto each cracker. Cut your package of bacon in half (or cut pieces individually) and carefully, so the cheese doesn’t fall off, wrap each cheese covered cracker in one half piece of bacon, completely covering the cracker. It should fit snugly around the cracker.
Place the bacon wrapped crackers onto a baking sheet that has a rack on it.
Place in a 250-degree oven for about 2 hours.

Save that Turkey! It's Gumbo time...

Life is so simple and delicious when you follow a formula such as this. Get your turkey going for gumbo while cleaning up after the feast on Thursday evening and you'll be all ready for Saturday and/or Sunday's tailgating or football-on-TV watching.   Garden and Gun tells us how. from Garden and Gun  magazine Day-After Gumbo Turn your Thursday bird into a Friday  Saturday feast If the day after Thanksgiving is your favorite food day of the year, then Justin Devillier, of  La Petite Grocery  in New Orleans, is your kind of chef. “Although leftovers ‘as is’ are good, turning them into another celebratory meal keeps the holiday eat fest going at my house,” he says. On Thanksgiving night, the chef covers the carved turkey carcass with water, and as the family party winds down, the roasted bones simmer away, forming a rich stock. The next morning, he adds aromatics and andouille, and stirs in a nice dark roux. “I like mine as dark as I can get it without burning it,” he
