Thanksgiving is hands down my favorite holiday and always has been! Love me the combination of food and family. #theresnothingbetter My lovely blogger friends and I are back with a Thanksgiving recipe collaboration. This month we focused on whole foods sans gluten, dairy, grains, and sugar.

I got assigned the appetizer and my recipe includes bacon. Because why not. Scroll all the way down for that recipe. For now, let’s take a lookski at what everyone else made.

Healthy Thanksgiving Dinner options.

Davida from The Healthy Maven made Paleo Pumpkin Pie with Pumpkin Seed Crust

Taylor from Food, Faith, Fitness made Maple Curry Roasted Sweet Potatoes.

Roasted sweet potatoes served in a bowl with a fork.

I went crazy with my recipe and used two whole ingredients (plus salt and pepper). It can’t get much tastier and easier than this one, guys! This Bacon Wrapped Brussel Sprouts Recipe is GOLD!

Side note: apparently Davida just started liking bacon. What thaaaaaaa.

Now she eats it like twice a day.

You could use any flavor of bacon you desire…like an Apple Maple Smoked Bacon, man, that would have been delish!

I prepared myself for a giant greasy mess, but the bacon in the oven actually didn’t produce as much grease as pan frying. Few.

If I were a piece of girl bacon, I’d totally hit on this boy bacon.

Yah, I didn’t get that joke either but I just went with it, okay.
