Oh bacon–I have so many things I want to say about you. First of all, WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN ALL MY LIFE?
To preface that question, let me say that up until fairly recently, I probably ate bacon a total of 20 times in my life. I liked it, but I wasn’t obsessed the way everyone else seemed to be. Then, about two months ago, I bought bacon–like actual juicy, delicious, REAL bacon–and I fell in love with it. I then realized why I was never a bacon person, and that was because I was eating turkey bacon my whole life. …..not to hate on turkey bacon AT ALL, but it’s not the same as regular bacon. It’s just not. I understand it, I do, but sometimes you just need some real bacon in your life. When those moments occur, I find myself just whipping up some bacon and eating it by itself. Obviously this is fine, but I should probably start making actual meals with it rather than eating a ton of bacon and calling it a meal.
So, if and when you get a hankering for bacon, here’s a list of 15 Delicious & Mouthwatering Bacon Recipes. Eat up!
