My daughter is a meat-lover through and through, and her favorite is bacon. I don’t understand it myself. While I find bacon too salty and greasy, she would eat it every day. Sadly, in her opinion, I only buy it once in a great while, partly because I just don’t think it’s that healthy and partly because I may the grocery list, so usually it consists of mostly things I like.

Bacon is one of the first foods she learned to cook herself  – the microwave makes it easy. And it’s not just for breakfast. She also asks for those little round steaks wrapped in bacon, one of my least favorite meals. When we went to Packs and Dogs a while ago, she ordered a hot dog covered with bacon and devoured it. Potato soup apparently needs crumbled bacon on top, as do potato skins.

For the record, though don’t buy bacon-flavored microwave popcorn. Thanks to my brother she got three packs at Christmas. Now she munched it down, thought it was the best popcorn ever. My complaint – it stinks. It smells like something’s burning – not an unfamiliar smell in our house, but usually it’s because I actually am burning something. This is just nasty.

So, bacon, love it? Hate it?


  1. I’m a fan and have actually gone so far as to try bacon chocolate (bizarre and rather good, but not my favorite chocolate).

    I will say though that in my house it’s usually turkey bacon – it has a lot less fat and calories and really does taste as good as the “real” stuff.

  2. LOVE. I use it on salads, in sandwiches, sprinkled atop soups, even on cupcakes every once in a while. But I am obsessed with the sweet and salty combo, and I know it’s not for everyone.

    And… I have to disagree about the similarity of turkey bacon. Different consistency and different taste.

    1. Oh, gross. I’ll have to tell Amber though, she may love it. On the other hand, she’s supposed to take an ice cream topping to an event Sunday, and I can just picture her taking a tupperware container full of crumbled bacon.

  3. First off, I like that you did a post about bacon 🙂
    I do enjoy eating bacon once in a while, my kids love it. I usually fry it up on Saturday mornings for them. I was watching the Food Network and they featured a Southern restaurant that had bacon bits sprinkled on glazed donuts!

  4. Thanks for stopping by my blog and commenting. I think bacon is meat candy. I even got a tee for a friend that says on the front bacon is meat candy. I think it’s awesome I hope they do as well.

    There’s a bar in downtown Dallas that serves bacon sundaes I soo want one. It’s vanilla ice cream, maple syrup and bacon mmmmm yummy.
