It’s amazing to me how bacon has become a figure in pop culture. Who would have thought that a pork product would have such a following let alone a statue erected in it’s honor at a university (that’s for real, guys)! Not to mention all the bacon flavored/scented swag there is to be had. Bacon gum anyone?
I’ll admit that I’ve indulged in the bacon craze and have tried a bacon chocolate bar, an apple bacon pie, and multiple bacon maple bars (swoon). But my favorite way to eat it is straight up out of the pan or nestled between some toast, tomatoes and avocado. There’s lots of debate about how people should eat their bacon; I’m a crispy-to-the-point-of-almost-burnt kind of gal, the hubs likes his nice and chewy and I’ve even known some people who like theirs soggy (I will never, ever understand this). With this method of cooking you can have your bacon any way you like it with very minimal mess.
