The best thing about this ball of bacon is that it can be assembled the night before, making the day-of prep easy. This way, you’ll have more time to mingle with friends and family, and enjoy the party. Don’t let this big ball of goodness fool you, it’s actually quite simple to throw together, and it will definitely wow party guests!


First things first, you have to create the breakfast ball that’s hidden beneath the blanket of bacon. The football itself is composed of all of the breakfast essentials: sausage, breadcrumbs, parmesan cheese, cheddar cheese, ketchup, hot sauce and eggs.
