Whether it’s your playoff football tailgate or a holiday party, Goodnight Brothers Country Ham has some great recipes for entertaining this time of year featuring their line of all-natural ham and pork products. The “Sweet and Salty Ham Bites” make the perfect app and are super easy to make, plus they’re a great way to use that jar of homemade pepper jelly that’s been sitting in the pantry. You can make them ahead of time and refrigerate for a tailgate. Easy Peasy. The “Pork Side Bites” are a little more time-consuming but still doable for game day because you prepare the meat ahead of time in a slow cooker. Enjoy!
