Recipe: Fireside Turkey Bacon Bagel

With the holidays upon us, it is time to break out the easy to make finger food for your next gathering. Of course, this recipe can also be used as a great snack for your kids, fun lunch for you, your kids, and your spouse, or even a potluck gathering!

Our Fireside Turkey, also known as Fireside, is marinated and rubbed with extra virgin olive oil, chipotle, ancho, and guajillo chilis. We then cook with light hardwood smoke to represent the cuisine of the American Southwest. A harmony of flavors which will not crush you with spice or smoke. It also goes well with sharp cheeses for your next party or appetizer platter, or even bacon and avocado, like this recipe, but for a breakfast quiche or omelet.
