What’s the one ingredient that can make every one of your backyard BBQ dishes shine? That will kick up the flavors and make everyone come back for more?? Bacon, that’s what.
Take some fresh figs and wrap them with bacon for an amazing starter! Your guests will gobble them up. Pair the figs with a light, Santa Barbara county rosé like Alta Maria Vineyards, Dragonette or Liquid Farm. Of course you should add bacon to the burgers, and I like to stuff mine with chopped kale and feta cheese as well. And if you like this idea, check out our Green Jalapeño Margarita recipe!
Smoky baked beans and roasted Brussels Sprouts also taste better with bacon, so sprinkle chopped bacon or place bacon strips across the top. And for dessert, just put chopped bacon right on top of a regular ol’ chocolate eclair pastry, or add it to ice cream. Bacon makes everything taste better! Along with the rosé of course…
