20 mouthwatering bacon recipes

Every time I log-in to Facebook, one of my high school buddies is ALWAYS posting something about bacon.

She tells us when she smells it.

She tells us when she sees it.

She tells us when she’s craving it.

She tells us when she’s buying it.

She tells us when she’s cooking it.

She tells us when she’s eating it.

She goes on and on (and on!) about it.

And it kind of annoys me.

Okay, it REALLY annoys me. I just don’t get the need to waste so much time talking about pig products, you know?

But then I spent about 4 hours staring at bacon recipes on Pinterest the other night, and I suddenly understand. Have you seen the stuff people make with bacon these days? It’s ridiculous.
