Welcome to 2017 piggy peeps! I don't know about you but I am not ready to get back into the swing of things to kick off the New Year. It feels like there are 5 million to-do's on my list and I am barely making a dent in them a few days into the new year... One thing that's falling off my radar? Dinner. I am struggling with pumping out tasty meals without spending wayyyyy too much time on them. Since I have too much to do at work, I am starting to rely on meals of popcorn and soda - NOT how I wanted to start the year.

BBQ Chicken Avocado Flatbreads | Sauce + Style Blog (pigofthemonth.com)

Instead, I'm pulling out my Pig of the Month BBQ Shredded Chicken and I'm making something more than just a sandwich with it. These flatbreads are one of the easiest meals EVER and there's no one that can resist them, I don't care how picky of an eater they are. The fluffy naan with BBQ sauce, chicken and avocado is the best base for any pizza. Throw in the bite of some red onion and salty cheese and holy wow, this pizza is one the entire family will be begging you to make on a regular basis. Not to mention it's pretty dang healthy in terms of pizza, so you can feel ok about sticking to those New Year resolutions ;)

Avocado toast might be all the rage for all those health nuts out there wanting to eat something good for breakfast or lunch, and while we appreciate the healthy attempt, I kind of like to trash my healthy plans up... With a whole heaping helping of meat in these killer Pulled Pork Veggie Avocado Toasts!

Pulled Pork Veggie Avocado Toasts | Sauce + Style Blog (pigofthhemonth.com)

I can honestly admit that my attempts at getting healthy this year are pretty dang lame... I am not the biggest fan of sticking to a strict diet. For obvious reasons I'm sure. I mean when I have Pig of the Month BBQ Pulled Pork in my fridge, why the heck would I ever want to just eat my fruits and veggies?! Nope, instead I want to load up on my pork and I GUESS I can load up on some veggies at the same time.

Pulled Pork Veggie Avocado Toasts | Sauce + Style Blog (pigofthhemonth.com)

With the pulled pork, these veggie avocado toasts burst with tons of flavor. It's like eating a pulled pork taco but on toast! I love making this for breakfast or lunch, or a mid-afternoon snack, because it's super easy AND it's easy to throw together in even the smallest of kitchens (like that dinky one at your office...). So load up and get healthy (well healthy-ISH)!

Y'all know I couldn't leave you hanging right before the big game on Sunday without something delicious to make, right? For the love of all things bacon and cheese, this Cheesy Jalapeno Bacon Dip is the one recipe that HAS to hit your game day spread this weekend. Cheesy Jalapeno Bacon Dip | Sauce + Style Blog (pigofthemonth.com) I LOVE serving up cheesy dips for football parties because they are always the star of the entire day.

The thick cuts of bacon really stick out in this dip, so it's ideal for all those bacon-lovers in yo life. When I dip, you dip, we dip! Time to DIG IN.

Sticky Honey Buffalo Chicken Wings

Sticky Honey Buffalo Chicken Wings

Sticky Honey Buffalo Chicken Wings | Sauce + Style

Tailgating season is back and better than ever, piggy peeps! I don't know about you but I also ready to bring football back into my life. I just drafted my fantasy team and I have big hopes that my home team is going to be putting up some major points throughout the season.

Sticky Honey Buffalo Chicken Wings | Sauce + Style

Let's be honest though, as much as we love that ol' game we call football, the tailgating food is where it's AT. It's the thing that gets you through between the end of summer recipes and the official start of the holiday season once November rolls around. That means we have two months to stuff our faces with all the cheese, bacon and meats we can get our hands on.

Sticky Honey Buffalo Chicken Wings | Sauce + Style

And I'm starting with wings. Sticky, sweet and spicy wings that make you bust out the wet wipes and get extra messy. This is just the recipe to start off with people! Just look at that sticky sauce covering those baked wings.... ALL. THE. YES. Are you ready to dig in??

Sticky Honey Buffalo Chicken Wings | Sauce + Style

INSTRUCTIONS: Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Sticky Honey Buffalo Chicken Wings | Sauce + Style

In a large bowl, whisk together vegetable oil, 2 Tbsp melted butter, salt, pepper, garlic powder and smoked paprika. Add the wings and toss. Lay wings on lined baking sheet in a single layer. Bake for 45 to 50 minutes. Turn the oven to broil on high. Move chicken wings to the top rack and broil for 3 to 4 minutes, until crispy. Flip and broil again on the other side.

Sticky Honey Buffalo Chicken Wings | Sauce + Style

In a medium saucepan over medium heat, stir together hot sauce and cornstarch. Add butter, molasses and honey, stirring to combine. Bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer for 4 to 5 minutes until the sauce is thickened. Toss wings in a large bowl with the honey buffalo sauce. Serve with ranch or blue cheese dressing.

I know that's a wee bit dramatic, but that's how freaking amazing these brisket bombs. They come together in about 15 minutes and they'll have everyone begging for more.

It's time to bust out all the indulgent crazy recipes you can because the holiday weight gain officially starts NOW.

Brisket Mac N Cheese Sliders

Brisket Mac N Cheese Sliders | Sauce + Style

You know when you have leftovers hanging around and you have ZERO idea what to do with them? My refrigerator is usually a mash up of random BBQ leftovers, some pasta and whatever else I happen to have leftover from last night's BBQ party. There's a limit to how many times you can eat the same dish the same way. I mean, I love my brisket, but after a couple of nights of just brisket and a side salad, I'm getting bored.

Brisket Mac N Cheese Sliders | Sauce + Style

I also happen to be lazy and have no desire to actually get too terribly creative unless I know it'll take me zero extra effort. Enter these little brisket mac n cheese sliders... Brisket Mac N Cheese Sliders are the new appetizer that you have absolutely no excuse not to make. Seriously, how easy are these little guys? You just throw some leftovers on a toasted bun and BAM, you have a completely new way to eat that brisket and mac n cheese that have been taking up valuable real estate in your refrigerator.

Brisket Mac N Cheese Sliders | Sauce + Style

Plus, how fancy you get with this recipe is completely up to you. You can make your own smoked brisket or you can head over to Pig of the Month's shop to snag some of their oh-so tender brisket. For the mac n cheese, you can simply make these sliders with store-bought mac and cheese, or you can bust out grandma's favorite recipe to go the extra mile. Regardless, these sliders are just the right balance of meat and cheese to hit the spot with every bite. There's no going back once you've eaten these sliders, so get prepared to start craving mac n cheese on your sandwiches from here on out. Don't say I didn't warn you...

Sriracha Bacon Wrapped Stuffed Jalapeños | Sauce + Style

Wrapping things in bacon is kind of a specialty of mine. If anything just isn't quite working for me in the kitchen, I usually head straight for the extra pound of bacon I always have sitting in my refrigerator. You know, just in case there's a bacon-related emergency - which surprisingly happens on a weekly basis for me. You'd be surprised by just how many things can be wrapped in bacon! Potatoes, rolls, scallops, shrimp, meatloaf, yea this list could go on forever. Today I'm bringing you one of my new favorite bacon-wrapped recipes that'll light a fire on your tongue and in your belly.

Sriracha Bacon Wrapped Stuffed Jalapeños | Sauce + Style

Sriracha Bacon Wrapped Stuffed Jalapeños are the best combo of crispy, creamy, spicy and extra cheesy. The Sriracha bacon and added Sriracha in the filling make these little guys just the right amount of wicked. You'll feel the heat but you won't be burning your taste buds off with each bite. Pro tip: try slicing a sausage or brat in half and stuffing it with one of these stuffed jalapeños. Next level amazingness right there, I'm just saying.
