Last week I had the pleasure to head to Sam's Club to pick up some Wright Brand Bacon to use in recipes for a #MealsTogether BACON party! Of course I could not pass that up!
 I loaded the girls up and headed to our local Sam's.  The girls get along so well, sometimes.  Luckily the day we went shopping was one of those days!

We searched through Sam's as I had seen the bacon we were after a few weeks ago. Only this time, it was not in the spot it was in last time.
They moved the Wright Brand Bacon over to the premium deli area of the store.
I decided to get both the Applewood and the Brown Sugar flavored bacon.  I had not tried the Brown Sugar bacon yet and was very excited about it!  It did not disappoint!

We had our bacon party over the weekend.  I love having my friends over for meals together. My MIL and two of my friends came over to party with us.
I have the cutest friends!  Natasha is holding a Maple Bacon Cupcake {recipe below}.

We had such a good time sampling all of the goodies my hubby and I made.
I made Chocolate Chip Cookies with Bacon!
 Hubby smoked a Bacon Explosion. Oh my gosh!  It was AMAZING!
I made some Bacon Cheddar Pinwheels.
As mentioned above, I also made my Maple Bacon Cupcakes.  YUM!

6-7 Cups Confectioners Sugar
1 tsp Maple Extract
3-6 Tbs Milk
Wright Brand Brown Sugar Bacon for Garnish - Cooked crisp and chopped
Directions:
1) Place Butter in bowl of stand mixer and mix until creamy
2) Turn mixer down and begin adding Confectioners Sugar one cup at a time, allow to incorporate between each addition.
3) Add Maple Extract and mix well.
4) Add Milk one Tbs at a time until you get the consistency you desire.
5) Place in piping bag {or zip-top bag with a corner snipped off} and pipe onto cupcakes.
6) Garnish by sprinkling bacon on top.

**Note: For my party I used light margarine in place of butter for the frosting, it tasted great but the consistency was off a bit.

We had a LOT of cupcakes left over so I ended up taking them to my Women's Meeting at church, they were a HUGE hit! Everyone is always so surprised at just how great they are.  They taste just like pancakes and bacon!
Even the kids had a GREAT time!

What are some of your favorite recipes that include bacon?  I am always looking for yummy new recipes!
