Bacon is one of those few ingredients that's appropriate any (and every) time of the day. You won't come across a breakfast diner that doesn't offer -- if not feature -- bacon on its menu. Bacon makes an appearance at lunch, in BLTs and Cobb salads. And come dinner time we get to wrap everything we can get our hands on in this cured meat.
Bacon is even showing up on the dessert menu, in dishes like bacon-maple sundaes and bacon-frosted cupcakes.
People just never get tired of eating bacon. A home where leftover bacon exists after a meal would be like living a scene from the twilight zone. Bacon is almost always the first thing to disappear from the table -- and there's always some keeping track of who had how many strips, making sure that they weren't cheated out.
With that in mind, we found 75 bacon recipes so that no one has to go a day without bacon. (Of course, we're not recommending that you eat bacon every single day. We're just saying that if you wanted to, you could with these recipes.) And whatever you do, please be sure you're cooking your bacon right.
