Somedays I pat myself on the back for being such a good parent.
And today was just such a day. This morning my son announced that he wanted to dress up as Ron Swanson from Parks and Recreation for Halloween. That’s my boy!
The idea for Ron Swanson came up because of these bacon wrapped jalapeño poppers.
Ron Swanson’s favorite food is, of course, bacon. I actually found a PSA he did for bacon. (Below) Due to an expected bacon shortage, Ron has been squirreling away bacon in the office. In the walls, in printers, and even under Tom Haverford. It’s really funny.
Thankfully there is no shortage of bacon yet.
So we are free to make these low carb bacon wrapped jalapeño poppers. I must warn you though, these babies are HOT. On a scale of 1-10, they are a 13. So have a glass of water handy. But know that they have less than 1g net carb each.
All thanks to the power of bacon.
