I wish I could proudly admit that I am one of those amazing moms who spends their Sunday evenings meal planning for the week or for the big game. No really, I really wish that I was that mom. But I'm not, on Sunday evenings I am usually yelling at my girls to get into bed so I can try and have a minute to myself. 

So when I do my weekly grocery shopping, I sometimes buy ingredients and hope that inspiration will hit me before the big game starts. This week, I bought crab from the carniceria and really wanted to make crab cakes, the perfect game day appetizer. As I started to prepare, I wondered how could I make them even more interesting? And then BOOM just like that, bacon! I always have Farmland® Bacon on hand. 

I buy Farmland® Bacon all the time, it has such great flavor, it's easy to cook with, and is always a great value. Farmland® bacon is slow smoked over real hardwoods for maximum flavor. For decades, Farmland® has taken pride in perfecting their curing and smoking technique – a difference you’ll taste in every delicious bite.

I always thought crab cakes were difficult to make, I don't know why I've never made them before. But I must admit, out of all the crab cakes I've tried before, none have tasted quite like this. You know that saying, "Bacon makes everything better!" well 


 Bacon definitely made these crab cakes better. If you are looking for the perfect game day appetizer, you need to try this recipe, you will be amazed at how easy it is and how delicious it tastes.
