Game Day Snack – Bacon Cheddar Apple Melts

Bacon, Cheddar and Apple Melts - perfect for snacking during football season!

Yay for Friday!  What does everyone have planned for the weekend?  We’ve got some fun stuff going on….flag football tonight, pumpkin patch and pony rides tomorrow, girls night in with friends Saturday night and Sea World for some Spooktacular fun on Sunday!  Oh and of course a Gator game tomorrow night!  I love this time of year.

Bacon, Cheddar and Apple Melts - these are delicious! Perfect snack for football season.

This little creation was inspired yet again by Facebook.  I swear, I get so many ideas from Facebook friends … most of whom I have not actually seen in person for almost 15 years!  Facebook is a lot of fun that way!

These little Bacon Cheddar Apple Melts are incredibly easy to whip up and snack on while watching a game on TV (or not) while drinking a yummy fall beverage such as one of my favorites Shipyard Pumpkinhead Ale…well at least that’s how we enjoyed them!  I took a major shortcut by picking up some precooked Boar Head bacon that I found in the deli section.  I like bacon, though I’m not a huge fan of the grease it produces while cooking.  These precooked strips were really good (I was skeptical but pleasantly surprised!) and cooked up in a minute in the microwave!  Of course, if you are up for frying up some bacon yourself…please do so.

Bacon Cheddar Apple Melts - the perfect combination of flavors! These are delicious and great for sharing during Football Season!
