If a bacon shortage is a real thing, I think we need to take a step back and consider how we are utilizing it. Now I am the first to admit I jumped on this bacon band wagon early, just ask my friends and family, many years ago I wanted to try chocolate dipped bacon for Christmas, which was initially met with disgust. And I did order the bacon & maple frosting covered doughnut at Voodoo doughnuts in Portland. However my favorite place for bacon will always remain next to eggs and toast for breakfast. So with that said we may need to eliminate the bacon on the crème brûlée, bacon martini’s, bacon coffee and we can especially live for quite a while without the bacon art. I vow to do my part in not eating any bacon fad foods, and my plea is that you all agree to do the same. If we band together we will all see bacon rise again to it’s 2011 glory.
I am sorry, this post was for me, it made me crack up the whole time I was writing it, I really am a food nerd. I was wondering does everyone bake their bacon? When I was still in my 20’s my Dad’s friend showed me the proper way to make bacon, which is to line a baking sheet with tin foil and bake it in the oven, this way every piece turns out perfect. It was not until he showed me that I realized there are instructions to cook it this way right on the package. I decided to make bacon for breakfast and show the pictures, they really speak for themselves. This also has the benefit of easy clean up afterwards.
Perfectly cooked strips every time!
