Bacon is fantastic with eggs on a Saturday morning, but it’s also excellent on…well…just about everything else! Paired with chocolate? Great! Paired with Cheese? Even better. Eat it with fruit? It works. Bacon is so versatile is breaks down barriers between breakfast, lunch, dinner and dessert to create an open atmosphere in the food world where every ingredient is useful in one way or another at every meal. Is this getting too philosophical? I just have strong feelings about bacon.
