Ideas for bacon recipes

In which I prove that the best thing about bacon is that it makes all foods better.

Slices of bacon

There is no proper food that bacon cannot make better. Try it, Bacon & Sausage, Bacon & Steak, Bacon & Chicken, Bacon & Bacon. All works, all made better by the introduction of more bacon. Regular readers will know that for me bacon is an important part of my diet and what I consider a “freebie” (in the same way others consider celery or lettuce of no calorific value).

I will start with an important clarification, mostly what I am talking about here is what I call ‘proper bacon’. This is the kind that has more that 10% meat on and isn’t just fat. Not saying there is any thing wrong with that ‘bacon’ but it’s not ‘proper bacon’.

To show you how versatile bacon is I have a few handy bacon recipes.

Bacon Garlic Bread.

Bacon Cottage Pie

For those unfamiliar with a cottage pie, it is minced beef with mashed potatoes on top. For this recipe you will need a frozen ready meal version. To prepare place a slice of bacon on top and put in the oven.

If this does not sate your desire for bacon then remove the frozen cottage pie from the container and place some extra slices on the base. Surprise bacon!

The Swineapple

Bacon and Gravy

Fry bacon and make some gravy, presto you have bacon dippers. A healthy and nutritious meal, if you do want to be a bit more health conscious you could grill the bacon.

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Ingredients.”

What’s the one item in your kitchen you can’t possibly cook without? A spice, your grandma’s measuring cup, instant ramen — what’s your magic ingredient, and why?

Ah, so you worked out the riddle. You just needed to use dwarfish and the doors to Geek Ergo Sum opened. Or perhaps you just used Google. Either way you are here, on my little corner of the Internet.
