Oh, sweet bacon. Not only is everyone's favorite pork product thick, crispy and warm, but bacon prices are falling, and bacon is literally showing up in THE most bizarre places we could ever fathom. (We're looking at you bacon-scented pillow cases.)
And little do many bacon fiends know, there are some ingenious ways to cook it beyond the typical pan fry-and-flip. There is potential for sugar-coated bacon, bacon bowls and yes, even bacon tacos. What are you waiting for?!
2. Drizzle pancake batter on top.
Get the Buffet Pancake Dipper recipe from Lady Behind the Curtain.
3. Or roll bacon into your cinnamon rolls.
All it takes is some store-bought dough and a few slices of the good stuff.
5. ... or better yet, a bacon taco shell.
Not even Taco Bell has seen THIS.
6. Clean up pan grease with a tinfoil nest.
You won't have to pour grease down the drain, but you won't have to scrape it off the pan when it dries, either.
7. Or pop bacon in the oven to make dozens of strips at once.
Nom nom nom.
9. Or cook it in a waffle iron.
Alton Brown swears by this trick.
10. But never underestimate the standard bacon weave.
Add it to a sandwich for bacon in every bite.
11. Microwave your bacon.
So fast, and sooo good.
13. Or cover in brown sugar for a sizzling sheet of Billionaire's Bacon.
