BOTW: Party Food ~ Mini BLTs

Football season is upon us.  Whether you're into college football, high school football or professional football or even if you're not into football at all, I bet you would enjoy a football party all the same.  For this week's 'Best of the Web' I went for some party food and boy, did these look good! Perfect for a house party or a tailgating party.

Make this recipe even easier by buying slider buns and toasting them up instead of baking biscuits!

Usually we like anything Mexican, but you can't go wrong with bacon.
