‘Tis the season for holiday parties and potlucks with family, friends and coworkers. I usually take something Whole30-compliant that others will enjoy as well for a couple reasons.

  1. I know there will be at least one dish I can eat.
  2. I like to show others that healthy can be tasty!

    These sound amazing! Would these be just as tasty if I leave the bacon out? Some of my guests are vegetarian so I was thinking about making some with and some without the bacon. Any and all suggestions are appreciated 🙂

      Yes! I actually make some with and some without bacon. I brushed the ones without bacon with some oil before putting them in the oven.
