Bacon Apple Pie?

We enjoyed our newest Bacon dessert this weekend.  Bacon topped apple pie....really!  <----- There is our before photo.  But we did learn a lesson.  Keep the bacon hanging over the edges. That is how it is suppose to end up.  ---->
Duh us!  We forgot it would shrink up and be smaller once it was baked.  But oh me oh my how good it tasted.  I do not want to even imagine the calories.  So I guess I need to look for a few lighter alternatives.

Eating Light 400 Calories or Less, a new 116-page bookazine loaded with research-backed dieting tips, slender choices for dining out, and satisfying recipes designed to help me stay on track is where I am going for help. It was developed and tested by the editors of Good Housekeeping, Redbook, and Country Living. I love that the recipes are broken down by season to draw upon fresh ingredients. Also there are 52 tips – one for every week of the year--that help me make better choices.  There is even advice on ordering skinny meals at restaurants, choosing beverages wisely, and blasting belly fat (try green tea, healthy fats, and purple foods!). Add in a slim-down plan indicating how many calories I should consume at each meal, so I will drop extra pounds safely and confidently.  Of course my favorite is the Bacon-Wrapped Scallops from Good Housekeeping (pg. 69) that I will share with you below.  Eating Light 400 Calories or Less costs $9.99 and can also be downloaded as a digital edition on Zinio and on Barnes and Noble for Nook.

  1. I swear you people from Texas must eat bacon on everything. I would fit right in because I love bacon. I loooove bacon wrapped waterchestnuts with a ketchup/brown sugar bbq sauce. Oh so yummy!!!

  2. The bacon wrapped scallops sound fantastic! We really like bacon in our home but I think bacon apple pie would be a bit much ..... :) but hey ya just never know
