Today is one of the greatest days of the year! Yes, you can eat bacon whenever you want, but today is the one day when you can really eat all the bacon possible and not have to explain yourself to anyone. You can even eat bacon with your coffee or your dosa or your batura, whatever you want to eat bacon with you can! International Bacon Day is a great day for all those reasons and more, it’s also about celebrating the awesomeness of bacon. If you’re a vegetarian, we apologise for the bacon love today, but there are vegan and vegetarian options that are making the rounds and making an impact on people all over the world.
So to celebrate International Bacon Day, we’ve got some bacon infused dishes that you need to eat. Seriously, everything tastes better with bacon, but this list already insists on bacon being a part of it, so head on out, find the closest place that serves bacon and make the most of it!
Bacon Jacket Potatoes
Steamed potatoes stuffed with sour cream and topped with bacon? How does anyone go wrong with this?
Just in case you were wondering, the B in the BLT does stand for Bacon. And this sandwich has the perfect balance with lettuce and tomato providing vegetable nutrition and bacon providing everything else.
Grilled Cheese & Bacon Sandwich
Grilled cheese sandwiches are great, but what about when a few slices of bacon are added to the grilling process? Trust us, it’s worth the try.
Pasta with Bacon
Pick your pasta of choice and if the restaurant (or if you’re at home) has bacon, get them to chop the bacon up and add it to the top of your pasta. It truly does complete the meal.
Pigs In A Blanket
The perfect finger food. You can use any sausage of your choice and just wrap the bacon around it and then cook it and stick a toothpick in it to hold it all together and serve!
Bacon Cheese Fries
French fries are an all time favourite of almost everyone in the world. Cover it in melted cheese and you have a winner. But imagine if you add cheese and bacon. It’s like a gift from heaven.
Bacon Mac & Cheese
Cook the bacon with the macaroni and cheese for the full effect. Or you could just sprinkle bacon on top of each serving, giving everyone a crunch to go with the cheesy goodness.
