It feels as though we’ve waited forever for college football to start, and finally the wait is over! Check out our tailgating page
for recipes that are sure to become fan favorites. As an added bonus, the day before Labor Day
is National Bacon Day
and we don’t know about you, but we like putting bacon on anything and everything, so we’ll definitely be celebrating that. It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here
Mash-ed taters stuffed chicken thighs (pic heavy)
@Hennaple and I were discussing what was on tap for the weekend cooks, and he gave me the idea for stuffed boneless/skinless chicken thighs. I was talking to the wife about what we should stuff them with, and my son suggested mash-ed potaters. We happened to have some leftover mashies from the night before. Added some cream cheese, shredded cheddar, and of course wrapped them in Wrights bacon. My publix didn't have deboned thighs, so we got skinless thighs and I removed the bones with a fillet knife (wasn't too hard). Pounded flat with the mallet, stuffed, wrapped, and secured with toothpicks if needed. I dusted them with Oak Ridge chicken seasoning after pounding the chicken, then a little more once wrapped. I cooked them at 350ish high in the dome until the bacon was crispy. Added just a small handful of cherry chips. The internal temp was about 190 when they finished. This will definitely be repeated!

Which came first the chicken or the egg? I egged the chicken and then I ate his leg wing.
