In case y’all didn’t know, today is International Bacon Day. A day where we say “YES!” to all things bacon. Calories from bacon are not counted, we don’t worry our little heads about such nonsense because we are celebrating people! Celebrating all that is good and delicious about bacon and what happiness it brings to the lives of so many. We would not let a day like this go by without giving you guys some new food ideas. #InternationalBaconDay
Maple Bacon Breakfast Pie | Tablespoon
Bacon is an ABSOLUTE breakfast staple. Typically I’d say not to do anything too fancy with it but this was just next level breakfast.
Candied Bacon Baked Brie | Blackberry Babe
This is one for the party food bible. The melted brie and bacon pieces have my mouth watering.
Sweet Chicken Bacon Bites | Jo Cook’s
This with some baked beans and garlic bread. That’s all I need to say.
Bacon Scallops with Garlic Butter Sauce | Damn Delicious
I love me some scallops. This garlic-y, buttery pan of deliciousness would go well with some polenta and some wine.
Chicken Bacon Pasta | Julia’s Album
The spinach and tomatoes cut into this rich dish a little. A little cream sauce and you are in heaven.
Bourbon Bacon and Pecan Butter Tarts | Closet Cooking
Tarts are really versatile. But when I think of a good tart it’s always a dessert. This is an easy addition to the holiday dessert table.
Bacon and Brussel Sprouts Gratin | Love Foodies
OK. Before people make that disgusted face, Brussel sprouts are soooooo good! If they are cooked with delicious ingredients (thank you, bacon) they will quickly be a family favorite.
Blackberry Bacon Grilled Cheese | Lemon Tree Dwelling
Adult grilled cheese all day. That blackberry jam gives some sweet to the savory.
Warm Bacon Honey Mustard Potato Salad | Small Town Woman
I don’t usually think “warm” when I think of potato salad but this dish with the honey mustard just looked too good not to share.
Salted Caramel Bacon Cookies | Bacon Today
I mean, do we need to say anymore?
Applewood Bacon Wrapped Pineapple Poppers | Dangerously Delicious
The honey sriracha sauce is what roped me in. Plus the bacon pineapple combo is just a given for deliciousness.
