By Cooking Panda

What’s the best food to eat on a cheat day? Bacon, of course!

Salty, savory, smoked, chewy, crispy and sometimes even sweet — however you like your bacon. 

Enjoy these top-notch bacon appetizers:

1. Bacon-Wrapped Fries

Because sometimes potatoes, glorious though they may be, just need a little more oomph. PSA: You can also make these with tots.

2. Chicken Fried Bacon

Ever had chicken-fried steak? Imagine that same seasoned crispy batter coating a chewy, crunchy, fatty smoked slice of bacon! It is as amazing as it sounds. Sprinkle a little powdered sugar on top or serve with maple syrup on the side for dipping.

3. Macaroni and Cheese Stuffed Jalapeno Peppers Wrapped in Bacon

Jalapeno poppers are great, but this ultimate comfort food delight is proof that you can improve on perfection.

4. Deep Fried Bacon-Wrapped Pizza Balls

Because bacon and pizza are made to be dunked in hot oil together.

5. Sweet and Sour Bacon-Wrapped Pineapple

These flavorful, glazed appetizers are actually fairly healthy, especially if you use turkey bacon.

6. Deep Fried Bacon-Wrapped Peanut Butter Balls

Use maple bacon for the perfect marriage of sweet-savory. Oh yes, you’ll be hooked!

7. Elegant Pancetta Cups

You can dress these up or down — fill them with salad for something classy and light, scrambled or poached eggs with cheese for a fun breakfast or even some cheeseburger or taco fixings.

8. S.T.’s Tex-Mex Bacon-Wrapped Chicken Nuggets​
 

These are super easy! Just use any leftover cooked chicken and wrap in some spices, cream cheese and jalapenos for a fun spin on poppers. If you want to go less spicy, you can swap out the jalapeno for sweet mini bell peppers.

9. Bacon-Wrapped Cheese Curd Bun Cheeseburger

Make these as bite-sized sliders for a more manageable appetizer, since the full-sized ones are pretty overwhelming!

10. Bacon-Wrapped Grilled Cheese Sticks

Sure, you could just put bacon inside of your grilled cheese sandwich, but when you cut that sandwich into strips and twist luscious bacon around it, the grease will fuse with the crispy bread to give it an even more delicious crunch.
