Bacon, bacon, bacon~ it's a wonderful thing! Pancetta, Canadian and Slab! Bacon is our friend. I'm mean really. It is so completely versatile.
You can put it on your breakfast sandwich or club sandwich, your burger and your classic BLT.
You can crumble bacon and put it on just about anything. Salads, baked potatoes, pizza and soup. Go ahead and add some flavor. Flavor your beans and your broths and even your Vodka- all with bacon. (Okay purchase the Vodka from the store but I hear they make it!)
Eggs and bacon. They were made for each other.
You can wrap it around shrimp, scallops, jalapenos, and steaks. Even asparagus.
Somebody stop me because I'm about to break out into a Bubba Gump Bacon Montage!
Bacon goes with everything!
I have to try these bacon cups! You can try them, too. Just check out the instructions over at Not Martha. They look pretty easy. You throw salad in them, of course!
Bacon is loved by so many people there are whole websites dedicated to bacon. There is the Royal Bacon Society, I Heart Bacon and Bacon Unwrapped.
I thought I was going to be so clever and be the very first to make Pancake and Bacon Cupcakes but you guessed it. I am not so clever because lots of someones have already made them! There are actually so many out there that there are too many to share... just google it and make me a batch.
Just this week, Margaret sent me a link to a new dessert that she knew we would both love. I love cotton candy. She loves bacon. Put them together and what do you get? Bacon Cotton Candy! It was from some where in South Carolina.
I could go on and on about bacon but I'd rather hear from you. Do you love bacon? What do you love it on or around or in? Calling all Bacon Lovers! Give me your favorite recipe!
Signing off until tomorrow...
