The world is divided into two groups. Those who love bacon… and everyone else. Those who know, KNOW—bacon is not just a crispy, smoky, salty breakfast meat. Bacon is the ultimate culinary chameleon: it’s great in everything.
Bacon is an unmistakably scrumptious ingredient to add to endless foods, both sweet and salty, desserts and entrees… and it even makes a perfect garnish in some drinks!
Breakfast aside, burgers and sandwiches might be the most obvious use for bacon. Top off a burger with bacon strips and some cheese, or make a classic BLT sandwich with bacon leftover from breakfast, plus sweet tomatoes and crisp lettuce.
Crumble up bacon or use bacon bits to top off your salads: doesn’t bacon avocado salad, bacon Caesar salad, BLT chopped salad, and even strawberry bacon salad sound tasty? Adding finely crumbled bacon to devilled eggs is a game changer, and pre-cooked and chopped bacon mixed into chocolate chip cookie dough make for the ultimate salty-sweet cookie. Trust us.
Bacon will also add a smoky, umami touch to any soup. Try a potato, leek and bacon soup, or crumble bacon into lentil or pea soups.

Pork Fingers with Honey Mustard
4 boneless centre loin pork chops
12-16 bacon strips
canola oil, for cooking
3 Tbsp. yellow or grainy mustard
3 Tbsp. honey
pinch red chili flakes or 2 tsp chili oil
Cut the pork chops lengthwise into 3-4 strips. Wrap a piece of bacon around each one, spiralling along the length of it to wrap it entirely.
Set a large skillet over medium-high heat, add a drizzle of oil and cook the bacon wrapped pork strips without crowding the pan, turning them as they brown. Cook for about 10 minutes, or until the bacon is crisp and the pork is cooked through. Meanwhile, stir the mustard, honey and chili flakes or oil together to serve alongside for dipping.
We’re all familiar with chicken breasts and how easy and versatile they can be in recipes or just seared on the grill.
