Super Bowl Sunday is quickly approaching! It’s time to start gearing up for Super Bowl parties and appetizers galore, because diets definitely don’t exist on game day. What better way to start off Super Bowl Sunday than with a giant bacon football?
Yes, you heard correctly. A football neatly woven from crispy bacon strips. Filled with sausage, eggs and everything nice. Whether you are starting off your Super Bowl Sunday with this delicious ball of breakfast, or having it as “brinner” (breakfast for dinner), this bacon football is the perfect Super Bowl treat!
The best thing about this ball of bacon is that it can be assembled the night before, making the day-of prep easy. This way, you’ll have more time to mingle with friends and family, and enjoy the party. Don’t let this big ball of goodness fool you, it’s actually quite simple to throw together, and it will definitely wow party guests!
First things first, you have to create the breakfast ball that’s hidden beneath the blanket of bacon. The football itself is composed of all of the breakfast essentials: sausage, breadcrumbs, parmesan cheese, cheddar cheese, ketchup, hot sauce and eggs.
Next, neatly wrap the breakfast football in delicious bacon! Is your mouth watering yet?
Once you’ve got your breakfast ball assembled, and the bacon neatly woven, add the finishing football laces (slices of white American cheese) to complete the look. And there you have it, a giant bacon football! Get the full list of ingredients and complete recipe from Extra Crispy.
