60 Things to Make with Bacon

60 Things to Make with Bacon | Taste As You Go

In my family, we have a strange little tradition. An unspoken expectation that every gathering... from a weekend visit to a holiday get-together... includes bacon.

My stepmother is the master of cooking bacon for an army. And, for whatever reason, bacon tastes best when she makes it.

It's been tough not seeing family this year... especially over the holidays. But reliving the fun memories has helped. Especially all those times we received instructions from my parents to arrive early... or we'd risk missing out on the best part of brunch.

Family brunches featured bacon as-is... in all its crispy, salty glory šŸ„“. With today being National Bacon Day, I started thinking about ways to make bacon the star. For inspiration, I turned to my fellow bloggers for help... and I asked them to share their best recipes featuring bacon.

They all sound amazing! If you're looking for more ways to incorporate bacon into your cooking, then keep reading... because I've compiled 60 recipes that put bacon in the spotlight.

(Yes, I realize I'm sharing this before the start of a new year... when many people make their resolutions to eat healthier. But, I'm not the one who decided to make December 30th National Bacon Day... The internet did that. šŸ¤·)
