Oh bacon. You crispy thing. We love the way you sizzle in the pan, crisp under the grill or cook in the oven. You can make a cooked breakfast complete, add flavour to a lasagne and you’re perfect on your own. We don’t think there is any situation that isn’t made better with bacon!
In our blog post 6 Weird Food Combinations That Taste Good we talked about Chocolate covered Bacon and that got us thinking about all of the other foods that have been enhanced by bacony goodness. Have a look our 10 unique bacon recipes below then tell us what you think.
