Bacon Wrapped Sausage Bites

Happy Tuesday!! Hope you have a fantastic weekend!

I didn’t get as much done as I had hoped, but I did get to “play” around with my Instant Pot. WOW!!  I am so excited about this new “toy”.  I have only done a couple of things and have been super impressed.  I will be perfecting some of what I have been working on soon and sharing with all of you.

**(HINT – frozen chicken straight into the instant pot and done so fast!!)

I had a dinner to go to last week and needed to bring an appetizer. Since I trying to eat as Whole30 as possible I decided to just wing it.  I wanted it to be something folks that are not doing Whole30 would willingly/unknowingly eat!  Plus I needed it to pass my “kid test”.

So where do you start when you need an appetizer that kids and non Whole30 peeps will love? BACON!!  Yes, bacon!  If you don’t like bacon, well there is something seriously wrong with those taste buds of yours.

My favorite Whole30 bacon is Pederson Farms. It is even marked Whole30 right there on the label.

I also used Aidells Chicken Apple Sausage (purchased at Costco). This stuff is fantastic and it’s already cooked so you are just heating it up.

These turned out absolutely delicious and the kids and myself ended up fighting over them. They were super easy to make and you it’s a recipe you can let your kids help with.  JUST AS LONG AS EVERYONE WASHES THEIR HANDS PRIOR TO & AFTER HANDLING THE RAW BACON.

**You could even experiment with a little maple or coconut sugar sprinkled on these before baking. I didn’t test it because….not WHOLE30. If you do, let me know how they turn out!!
