Mmmm Bacon!

Let me start out by saying I Love Bacon.  It's not a secret.  That salty, smoked flavor.  Dear I say, I also dream about it.  I've always been one of those people that like salty things.  However, I didn't know what I was missing until I tasted the bacon from our pig.  Oh my, is it good.  You see, the supermarket bacon that I always bought really does not compare to the taste and flavor of this farm raised bacon.  I always found supermarket bacon to be sub-par, fatty, and when cooked, disappeared into almost nothing because all the fat was cooked off.
The bacon from the farm was thickly sliced, and when I cooked the bacon, the bacon pieces did not dwindle to nothingness.  Nope, the pieces cooked up perfectly with lots of substance to it.
What did I make with our first batch of bacon?  A BL without the T.  I had no tomatoes and the hubs doesn't care for fresh tomatoes so I made a bacon, lettuce, and mayo on toasted wheat bread.  Oooh, sooooo good!


  1. You know what makes this even better...a fried egg or a BELT. Just delicious.

    You got to love bacon.

  2. I have to say that you are the first person that I have heard of that dreams about bacon!!

    It's so so good :)

  3. That DOES look good. Have you seen that blog devoted just to bacon? I forget what it's called but if I come across it I will send you the link.

    Everythings better with bacon.

  4. oh my gosh. I love bacon too. Especially a thick sliced bacon. I call my BLTs "BM"s (i know - kinda gross) - bacon and mayo.

  5. That looks absolutely delicious!!

  6. Who doesn't love bacon? And yours look total delish! *drool*

  7. That's the kind we get from the meat market here in our town. Excellent. Much better than the paper thin kind from the grocery store.


We love to hear from you. Thanks for leaving a comment!
