That time of the year where we toast our friends, share some food and ring in the New Year is upon us! The girls and I are going to a party with close friends and I want to present the best hostess gift, along with a delicious appetizer. As I scrolled through cookbooks searching for a recipe, I thought of the my hostess gift I already had. Llano Estacado Wine has been anintegral part of the holiday season as family and friends gather to enjoy time with one another. When I shop for wine I am always drawn to it. It has a clean, crisp flavor that is easy to drink and even easier to pair with great foods! As I scoured my cookbooks I recalled a bacon appetizer I saw on a cooking show. The Pioneer Woman made it and it was so easy that I could remember the recipe without having to even look it up! Seriously, this Easiest Bacon Appetizer is EASY! The hard part is waiting for them to bake! Not only are they easy, but they pair with Llano Wine perfectly!

A little more on wine selection for your holiday gathering, though. I have a little history with wine and once belonged to a club called The Wine Brats with a friend of mine. But after having my kids I sort of lost touch with what was going on in the wine world. I love wine, even though the opportunities to imbibe are further and fewer between, and love introducing people to quality vineyards that produce consistently great products crop after crop. Llano Wine is not a new brand to me. I discovered them years ago and love their Llano Estacado line.Llano Estacado is the largest, best-selling Premium Winery in Texas and has been an ongoing pioneer in introducing not just Texans, but also the entire world to the great wines made in the Lone Star State. Being a Texan, I might be biased but being a wine lover, I know this is good stuff.

I am taking both bottles of Llano Wine to the party too. TheLlano Estacado 2015 Signature White and it’s light flavor will pair with the brown sugar Bacon Appetizer to balance out the sweetness. TheLlano Estacado 2014 Cellar Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon will pair with the Parmesan cheese Bacon Appetizer to pull out the rich tang of the cheese and the smoke of the bacon!

    I’m thinking that the instructions to bake these for 2 hours has to be wrong. Please clarify, I want to make these for the big game tomorrow. Thanks

    I would like to make these a day ahead since they take 2 hours in the oven.
    How should I store then overnight?

    My guys like a little spice with everything. Would adding a sliced ring of pickled jalapeño on top of brown sugar but under bacon work? I don’t eat much spice so if I make them I won’t be taste testing. They prefer beer to wine. Lol What do you think? Would it tast good to spicy lovers?
