Top Chef

For 1 week out of the summer all of my hubby's brothers and sisters are together for family week at my in-law's cottage in Michigan.  One of our traditions is to have a top chef night, everyone makes an appetizer and then we all vote on our top 3.  The appetizer with the most votes wins.  This year I decided to go with something so simple but oh so delicious.  While my sister in law was making pasta from scratch, I took some red potatoes, wrapped them in bacon, then popped them in the oven...

I am telling you if you want an easy but amazing appetizer this is the one...

The apps on the center stage....

The hubs calculating the votes...

and the top chef winner, my app.  My acceptance speech was very simple, "everything is better wrapped in bacon!"

and the grand prize...

A butter boy, for an easy and cute way to butter my corn on the cob!


  1. Those sound awesome! Love me some bacon! :-)

  2. What a fun idea! I'm pinning this appetizer, bacon does indeed make all things better:)

  3. Oh my gosh, those look so delicious! Congrats on your win!

    P.S. I love, love, love my new school! Thanks so much for asking! Hope you and your family are doing well!

  4. That sounds sooo good. I'm going to make it for my next party!!

    I love that contest idea. I should try to get Rich's family to do that at our next get together. Fun!

  5. Your acceptance speech said it all! I had to follow you right back after that.
