Last week Aaron McCargo Jr. showed us how to make Bacon Burger style Hot Dogs. Well this time he is going to show is how to make Chicken Roulade Stuffed with Smoked Bacon, Spinach & Gouda. The great thing about Aaron’s recipes is how simple they are to make. Well that and the fact that they all use bacon.

The bacon they want you to use in this recipe is Wright Brand Hickory Smoked Bacon. We plan to review that this week, so you might want to wait before you buy. If it’s anything like the Applewood it should be pretty good.
