Bacon Wrapped Spring Rolls {Easy Holiday Appetizers that will #PakTheParty!}

To create the perfect party appetizer, as part of a social shopper insights study for Collective Bias, I made Bacon Wrapped Spring Rolls using SeaPak Shrimp Spring Rolls.

'Tis the season to be jolly and to get ready for holiday parties! I have no shame in admitting that I like to be a show off and bring something awesomely different to holiday parties that everybody will love. One ingredient I have found that will please the masses is bacon. I'm sorry, I meant to say BACON. {I think it deserves to be spelled in all caps, at least once in this post.} Not only did I want to put bacon in a dish, I wanted to wrap something in bacon - but wasn't sure what. That was until I saw this article in Ladies Home Journal for the 15 Best Frozen Appetizers to Serve at a Party - #10 was SeaPak Shrimp Spring Rolls. My kids {& me} LOVE SeaPak Popcorn Shrimp, so I knew the quality of these Shrimp Spring Rolls would meet my quality standards. At first I was thinking they would be perfect to serve with a new, delicious dip. But then my Bacon Angel tapped me on the shoulder and reminded me about wanting to wrap a delicious holiday appetizer in bacon. And thus - the Bacon Wrapped Spring Rolls were born!

These make the perfect dinner party recipe since they can be made ahead of time, only need 2 ingredients, have a short cook time and are addictingly {I'm finding it extremely hard to believe that's not a word}delicious. I did a test run on these Bacon Wrapped Spring Rolls to make sure they would be as awesome as I hoped for an upcoming party. Someone's gotta do the dirty work... haha

It's real easy to make these Bacon Wrapped Spring Rolls - just roll them, place on a baking sheet and then pop them in the oven. If making them ahead, roll them and then place them on a baking sheet and in the fridge until ready to bake. Wrap the bacon around the rolls tightly to help avoid having them unroll during baking.

I baked my Bacon Wrapped Spring Rolls on parchment paper to avoid having them stick to the baking pan. Though this step may not be necessary, it does save a lot of cleaning time.

Bacon Wrapped Spring Rolls
1 package SeaPak Shrimp Spring Rolls
1 lb. pork bacon, regular sliced
1. Heat oven to 400
2. Line baking sheet with parchment paper
3. Wrap each Shrimp Spring Roll with a piece of bacon. Start at one end of the spring roll and wrap to the other end, pulling and creating tension as you go. Place, seam down, on baking sheet.
4. Bake for 20-22 minutes or until bacon is turning golden.
5. Let cool and serve with Sweet Thai Chili Sauce that is included with SeaPak Shrimp Spring Rolls

Not only did these Bacon Wrapped Spring Rolls turn out to be the perfect Holiday Appetizer, they also are now one of our favorite Easy Meal Ideas. I can't wait to take a batch of these to a Holiday Party this weekend - they are going to knock the socks off of some Bacon Lovers {everybody}!! I also love that SeaPak saved me time from making a fancy dip by including a Sweet Thai Chili Sauce that is not only delicious but the perfect accompaniment to the Bacon Wrapped Spring Rolls. Thank you SeaPak!!

The SeaPak Shrimp Spring Rolls are wonderful with or without the bacon, plus are so easy to make that they're now part of our regular rotation of quick-to-make snacks. I love finding new food products and this one is certainly worth sharing!!
