Sat we are going to a bacon party ... I'm looking for something quick to make that is really good, must contain bacon.
I would prefer it be something that can be served at room temp & not need be heated at the party.

I was thinking maybe slicing strips of bacon & turkey bacon in half length wise and wrapping the strips around small bundles of asparagus & green beans, sprinkling with salt & pepper & baking. Making a bacon ranch dressing for dipping.
How does that sound? 
Do you think they would be ok room temp?

Another idea was do do like a bacon candy. Making a basic glaze (like a glazed donut glaze) with milk, powdered sugar a dash of vanilla & maybe a dash of maple extract?  Mix the glaze with very crispy baked bacon, rough chopped with chopped pecans & dropping in little bite size piles to dry?
How does that sound?

Any other suggestions?

Sounds like fun!  Try searching for a bacon jam recipe.  Those bacon wrapped asparagus bundles are awesome with a mayo, siracha and lime juice dipping sauce.

Thank you Miss Willow  =)
I made the dipping or drizzling sauces last night to let the flavors meld. I made 1 with basic ranch seasoning pack & and add a little minced roasted garlic & a bunch of very crispy diced turkey bacon. The second I made with plain yogurt, light mayo, sarracha & lime juice, as per your suggestion. I LOVE it!!

I roasted a mixture of bundles or asparagus & green beans. Some of just beans, some just asparagus & some mixed (I used the thinner stalks of asparagus for the mixed bundles to have similar cook times). Most are wrapped in bacon, some wrapped in a long strip of carrot (made with a peeler). n case some people want away from all the baccon-y goodness.
