Amazing things you can do with Bacon

Bacon, delicious and amazing. Is there anything it can't do?

A Who doesn't love bacon!? It's an amazing crispy, salty, chewy cut of pork that mankind has loved for eons.

If you don't know too much about it except for how to shove more of it in your mouth, bacon is cut from the sides, belly, or back of a pig, close to the ribs. The tastiness of this amazing meat comes from all of its fattiness. After the skin is cut away, the meat is then cured, smoked, and sliced. It can be cooked in a pan on your stove, on the BBQ, in the oven, or in the microwave, any method will do.
