Bacon makes everything better, from sandwiches to salads and everything in between. (Ollylian/Wikipedia Commons)
Eggs are just eggs until you add bacon. A few of those little sizzling strips along side your sunny side up, and all of a sudden breakfast is born. Turkey sandwich? Grilled Chicken maybe? Just an ordinary sandwich is nothing to write home about. Now, when that ordinary sandwich is topped with bacon, good becomes great.
The combination of salty bite and smoky goodness is not only unique, it can’t be beat. Bacon has an undeniable aroma that permeates through the air. The crunch of bacon is crisp and light, and its delicious flavor lingers on the tongue. You’re beginning to want to write home about it aren’t you?
Of course you are – because bacon makes just about everything better. Take a hotdog for instance. This American classic in a bun is quite tasty. When that very same hotdog is wrapped in bacon, it becomes downright craveable. Potato salad topped with bacon? Better. Salads, spinach dips, even macaroni and cheese – all are so much better with bacon.
But are we thinking too small? Are we still inside the box? Meatloaf just might be the most traditional comfort food we have. It is flavorful, filling, has different colors and textures, and makes us feel all warm and fuzzy inside. As the saying goes, ‘don’t mess with a good thing.’ Cloaking that wonderful comfort food in a blanket of bacon can not possibly constitute messing with it, can it?
A jumbo prawn sautéed in melted seasoned butter is a delicacy worldwide. Wrap those succulent prawns in bacon, and it just may be the best thing you’ve ever tasted.
Is there any other food that goes so well with breakfast, lunch, dinner and any time in between? We’ve got bacon dips, bacon chips – both Pringles and Lay’s – and even bacon covered in creamy chocolate. Bacon, it just might be the Eighth Wonder of the World.
