Bacon Wrapped Potato Wedges

“My Story”

I love Football!! The hard hitting action, the competitiveness and especiallyBacon Wrapped Football Wedges the tailgating. From September to January, my Sunday revolves around football and food! (Or As much as my wife allows it).

However, Super Bowl Sunday is a bit different. My focus is not as much on the game but more on The Grub! Mostly because my beloved Philadelphia Eagles aren’t exactly running through the playoffs year-after-year, but also because it gives me a chance to really be creative with my recipes.

If you check out Pinterest for super bowl food ideas, you will find a plethora of options. Many people stick with the traditional hot wings, hoagies and pizzas. For me, I love the challenge of making a dish that my guests will remember and talk about by the water cooler at work the next day.
