They say that everything is better with bacon and here at Pig of the Month BBQ, y'all know we are inclined to agree with them. ESPECIALLY when it comes to desserts with bacon. That salty, savory taste of bacon goes so perfectly with everything from apples to chocolate, caramel to maple - it's a insane party of flavor that we will stuff our faces with all day, erry day! Now that Thanksgiving is all wrapped up (and we are still a little sad that the leftovers didn't last longer...), it's time to hit that holiday baking and treat making... HARD. We are rounding up all the things that are topping our wishlist to make this holiday season, and a few that we're planning to make for a second (ok more like tenth) time. You really can't argue with a classic like Bacon Bourbon Caramel Stuffed Brownies, you know? So whip out the apron and turn that oven on. It's time to get into that sweater body with alllll the bacon-packed desserts. You can save hitting the gym for your New Year's resolution... ;)

Can you believe we are only a couple weeks away from Christmas?! I don't know about you, but December is flying by. I am deep into the holiday celebrations and with tons of friends and family to give gifts to, I'm starting to get a little overwhelmed.
This year, I decided that all my boozy friends and family need a little homemade touch (and my wallet could honestly use the break too). Instead of buying a ton of gifts, I'm making everyone these adorable DIY Holiday Wine Glasses! I know they might look a little intimidating to make, but they are SO easy. You can just pick up some wine glasses on the cheap (this is where those dollar stores come in handy!), then decorate them any way you like. I love the simple "Cheers" on these glasses, but you can also decorate them with an artistic flair, or even use a longer quote. You can make them personal for everyone you plan to give them to!
INSTRUCTIONS: Decorate the glasses with random dots, lines or whatever pattern you desire (or no pattern at all!).
Print out desired quote or saying on a piece of paper. Using tape, attached the quote to the inside of the wine glass with the text facing out and in the position you desire.
Use a paint pen (one that works on glass!) to trace the quote in your desired color. Let dry completely.
Gift to any of your friends and family - or just keep these darling glasses to yourself to celebrate the holidays with!

In the dead of winter, all I want to wake up to is something sweet, savory and super easy to make. That's why this Overnight Bacon & Chocolate Chip French Toast fits the bill almost every weekend. It's got sweet french toast, rich dark chocolate and savory bacon which when combined together in a baked up casserole of goodness, will completely blow you away with every single bite.
What I really love about this recipe is that you can easily make it the day or night before. That way when you are groggy in the morning, reaching for your cup of coffee, all you have to worry about is setting the oven and placing the baking dish in there. By the time you feel awake, you'll be sitting down to a heaping, gooey portion of this deliciousness...
It's perfect for the holidays, especially when you have family staying with you and the chaos of Christmas morning! However this recipe can keep you going and going throughout the cold months that are still ahead of us, so don't go only making it once ;) Happy holidays everyone! Enjoy the long weekend!

INSTRUCTIONS: Spray a 9x13-inch baking dish with non-stick cooking spray. Add half of the cubed bread to the pan and top it with half of the chopped bacon and chocolate chips. In a medium bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, sugar, vanilla, salt, cinnamon and cloves. Pour mixture over bread evenly to coat everything. Cover and refrigerate overnight. When ready to bake, preheat oven to 400 degrees. Bake uncovered for 15 to 20 minutes, until golden brown and the center is set. Top with powdered sugar and serve immediately.
