Smoky bacon is dressed with sweet cherry preserves and wrapped around juicy and succulent shrimp for the perfect holiday appetizer.
They say that bacon makes everything better. Who am I to argue with that? And if you have just a little bit here and there, you don't have to worry about blowing your holiday healthy eating resolutions. As I mentioned in my Healthy Eating Tips & Tricks for the Holidays, tasting your favorite appetizers and sweets in moderation can help you avoid feeling deprived.
If you don't believe me that bacon can be sprinkled into recipes in moderation, try a BLT Naan Pizza with Bacon, Arugula & Tomato or Warm Bourbon Spinach Salad with Bacon & Avocado. You'll be convinced...and really happy because, well, you're eating bacon. Nature's happy food.
