I missed International Bacon Day. It was the Saturday before Labor Day.
Seriously. I don’t even know who I am anymore.
I’m not sure how it happened. I guess I just wasn’t paying attention. I could come up with excuses of having other, more important, posts to write, or having to deal with the first day of school for both of my boys. But, I won’t.
I feel like I let you down. Because, you see, I’ve celebrated in the past. I’ve been called the bacon queen on Twitter. People post bacon-related images on my Facebook wall. I curate a list on SkinnyScoop called all about bacon that has over 15,000 views. Bacon is in my tagline on the top of this website.
Heck, I actually have influence on the topic of bacon.
To make it up to you, I’ve compiled my top 10 amazing recipes featuring bacon. It contains some of the most yummy sounding combinations I can think of. There’s even a cocktail and a dessert included. These recipes are also perfect football food.
I’m still working on getting my husband to make a few of these recipes. (hint. hint.) And I’m thinking publishing this list is good timing because we just went in with 2 other people to buy a pig from a farm, and we have about 4 pounds of bacon in our fridge. (Don’t judge. It’s an economical way to buy meat. People do this outside of Maine, right?)
Oh, and because I totally missed International Bacon Day. Sorry about that.
And, please do add to this list if you have your own amazing bacon recipe to share.
