These Beautiful Bacon Recipes Will Make You Wish It Was Lunchtime
Aside from steak (of course), there aren’t a lot of proteins out there that inspire fierce fervor like bacon does. And for good reason! Love for bacon is well-deserved — what else works so well in everything from main dish to dessert?
Turns out, the best bacon recipes aren’t difficult to find. But the absolute best bacon recipes — well, finding those takes a little more finesse:
Bacon-Wrapped Filet Mignon Tips with Maytag Cheese
Bacon, steak, and blue cheese all in one bite sounds pretty great, but we add another layer of awesomeness to the mix in this crowd-pleasing appetizer: our Applewood Smoked Steak-Cut Bacon. Yup, that means you’re chowing down on a slice of bacon that’s a full 2 ounces of pure, bacon-y bliss. You’re welcome.
Slow Cooker Bacon-Wrapped Pork Loin
Pork meets more pork in this easy Slow Cooker Bacon-Wrapped Pork Loin from Damn Delicious. Spoiler alert: each cut of pork plays nice with the other. Like, really nice. Add the makings of an awesome glaze and a few key herbs, and this recipe is a surefire stunner.
Cajun-Style Steak Cut Bacon Canapés with Blackened Shrimp and Remoulade Sauce
Hello, flavor! No need for a Mardi Gras party to taste these zesty bites born of the bayou.
Bacon-Wrapped Filet Mignon Tips with Creamy Horseradish Dipping Sauce
Bacon-wrapped filet mignon? Always yes!
Breakfast for Dinner: French Toast & Omaha Steaks Steak-Cut Bacon
Bacon for breakfast, of course. But at dinner? We’ll eat at dinner. And lunch. And brunch. And always.
Bacon-Wrapped Tater Tot Bombs
If there was ever a way to improve crispy, golden tater tots, this is it. These Bacon-Wrapped Tater Tot Bombs, also from Damn Delicious, work well as a simple, yet mouth-watering appetizer for any day. Any. Day.
BLT with Roasted Red Pepper Aioli
The original recipe calls for beef bacon, but we’re good with any kind of bacon — especially if it’s smothered in that roasted red pepper aioli. Molto bene!
Peppered Candied Bacon Old Fashioned Cocktail
Candied. Bacon. Cocktail. Need we say more? (Doubtful.)
Dads who favor this clearly have their priorities straight. Not one, but two Filet Mignon Burger patties stacked high with pepper jack cheese, more of our Applewood Smoked Steak-Cut Bacon, and a spicy Ancho Chile Mayonnaise makes this burger every dad’s dream.
Bacon Caramel Brownies
Bacon. In a brownie. Swirled with caramel. Must we go on?
You get the picture. These Bacon Caramel Brownies from Bakerita are so good it almost hurts to look at them without grabbing one. So we’ll keep this short and suggest you use a thick-cut bacon when you make these — preferably steak-cut. (We had to go there. Can you even imagine?)
To be completely honest, this list could probably have more than 50 recipes in it. But if that’s the world we live in — a world where there’s an endless supply of delicious bacon recipes out there — we’re okay with it.
