Grilled Bacon Wrapped Onion Bombs
Grilled Bacon Wrapped Onion Bombs
I don’t know about you but we love to cook on the grill. Unfortunately, my wallet doesn’t always support my grilling habit. Sure we do hot dogs and burgers but love to splurge a bit on steaks and fish. Fortunately for me, I live less than 10 miles away from Food Lion. It is actually the closest grocery store to my home. I can always find great cuts of meat at a reasonable price. In fact, I always buy my meat from Food Lion. We have never been disappointed with Food Lion brand meats.
Even though I shop at Food Lion frequently, I had never visited them online. Now that I have registered my MVP card I am loading coupons to my card, finding recipes, making shopping lists, and checking out weekly specials at my local store. Let me tell you I am loving the way they have it set up to help you search for recipes. You enter your main protein and whether you are looking for something quick or with rice, grains, or pasta. If you want to narrow down the options even more you can select cooking style, additional ingredients you want included, type of meal, occasion, and more. It is so easy to use. Give it a try! I uploaded the recipe for my grilled bacon onion bombs so everyone can find it online at Food Lion’s Recipe page. A recipe this good just had to be shared with the world, right? You can find the full recipe here —–>Grilled Bacon Wrapped Onion Bombs
