Thank you Heluva Good! for sponsoring this post.
I love a good twist on a classic, and these Mini BLT Appetizers, served with Heluva Good! Buttermilk Ranch Dip, do not disappoint. Plus, they are the perfect addition to any backyard BBQ pool party, and they just look so fun!
I am not one of those people who bravely grills all the foods. I stick with the typical burgers, brats, chicken, etc… This causes some major midsummer blues when I go to meal plan for guests. Shaking things up with “deconstructed” foods are a great way to step away from the grill for a moment, all while wowing your family and guests!
I made these BLT Skewers for our last pool party. They came together in no time, can be prepped ahead and everyone loved them!
I love to serve them with extra veggies (like sliced radishes and cucumbers) on the side, for lots of variety. Crisp veggies are so refreshing this time of year. I also like to add other simple dippers, like pretzels, chips, even artisanal breadsticks– yum!
The BLT skewers are so simple to make, and are bursting with flavor. The only real work here is to fry up the bacon. Once that is done you will just skewer the bacon, lettuce, tomato and cheese onto each skewer or toothpick.
I highly recommend using sharp white cheddar for the cheese cubes. Its distinct flavor really elevates this appetizer. And the cheddar goes so well with bacon and ranch.
Once you’ve prepped all the skewers, place them on a pretty platter with a bowl of your Heluva Good! Buttermilk Ranch Dip and watch them disappear!
I love using Heluva Good! dips when I entertain because they have delicious, bold flavors that easily pair with all of your favorite dippables. I found them in the dairy aisle of my local grocery store, and they had seven flavors. I have tried the French Onion, Buttermilk Ranch, Jalapeno Cheddar and Bacon Horseradish. They are all so rich and creamy and work well, not only as dippers, but as toppings on so many foods.
What could be better than that you ask? Introducing the SS Snacker! This pool float has seats for two, spots for your dippable of choice, and your favorite Heluva Good! dip. BONUS: it has a holder for your cellphone, book or whatever else you need to relax with a friend!
Now there is no missing the food while you stay cool in the pool! Thank you SS Snacker!
