Stuffed Cucumber Cups

I’ve talked previously about the best game day appetizers, bacon wrapped smokies and bacon jalapeño poppers, but if you’re looking for something that’s more refreshing try these stuffed cucumber cups from Black and White Obsession. The cucumber cup is light with a sweet flavor, while the cream cheese and sour cream mixture tastes similar to a Green Goddess dressing that’s irresistible. To be honest, the cucumber and filling is delicious on it’s own, but the garnished bacon adds a tint of salty flavor that brings the appetizer together. These treats will go fast, so I recommend doubling the recipe if you’re hosting a large group!

I think it would be an understatement to say everyone enjoyed them, especially since they were almost gone as soon as we took them out of the oven.
