Parks and Recreation ‘The Swanson’ (Bacon Wrapped Turkey) Recipe

Ron Swanson from Parks and Recreation makes no secret about his love for meat; check out this collection of GIFS. As a tribute to his meaty attitude today we’re sharing a recipe for ‘The Swanson’ which made its appearance in the Fred Spaghetti episode:

Tom: Is that bacon on your turkey leg?

Ron: They call it a Swanson.

Sounds like a delicious idea doesn’t it? Serve a couple of ‘Swansons’ with a side of roast potatoes and vegetables for lunch or dinner.
