I Love Bacon

Updated on April 29, 2013

I LOVE BACON!!!!

I love bacon. I do. Love it. Even though it isn't the best for me, not the way I eat it. Because I eat bacon until it is gone. Let me say I have some guilt for eating bacon because I understand that pigs are very intelligent animals. I feel much less guilt when I eat fish or chicken. But fish and chicken aren't nearly as addictive and yummy as bacon. If/when they get veggie bacon to the point it is like real bacon then I'll switch. In the meantime, I yield to the carnivore inside of me and on occasion I eat bacon. Until it is gone.

The thing for me with bacon is that once you cook it a bit then you really can't go wrong. Raw bacon I have no interest in but once it is slightly cooked and limpy... I'm all about the bacon. Cook it so it is just a bit limp then it is still great. Get the bacon to a mix of crispy and limp it is still scrumptious. Crisp bacon? Wonderful. Even if you start to burn the bacon it is good. Until you've burned it to a charcoal state that bacon is absolutely the best form of meat product money can buy.

My brother in law Jacque (and that is pronounced Jack) makes this breakfast to die for on camp outs. The bacon is the big draw. He takes about five pounds of bacon and just stirs it up in a big frying pan. The result is a mixture of slightly cooked to crisp to slightly burnt bacon - all on one strip of bacon. It is bacon heaven on earth.

I do draw the line at some point. This woman in a conversation about bacon said there was bacon ice cream. That does not sound good. Maybe she loves bacon more than I do? I don't see how that is possible but if she likes bacon flavored ice cream... it is a possibility.

There are a lot of bacon fanatics out there. There is an "I Love Bacon" website called ilovebacon.com and there's iheartbacon.com. I imagine there are probably quite a few websites devoted to bacon. There are tons of I love bacon t-shirts, they always make me drool a bit. There is bacon flavored flavorings - the most famous being bacon sprinkles. There is such a thing as bacon underwear. Don't ask - that one is a bit disturbing. So lots of people love bacon.

PETA does not love bacon. I'm sympathetic but I have a feeling you can even catch a PETA member sneaking some bacon into their omelet on occasion. There are a few other haters out there as well, actual people who hate bacon. When they hate bacon because of taste alone then I have to think there is something seriously wrong with those people. If they feel sorry for the piggies well, then... as I've said I do understand that. I'd feel more guilty about eating bacon if it wasn't such a love fest in my mouth every time I do it. I've tried to be a vegetarian a few times and each time I came back over to the meat side it was because of pork.

Canadians don't seem to know what bacon is. When you order Canadian bacon for your pizza you don't get bacon; you get ham. Ham is not bacon. I had a Canadian try to explain why I was mistaken about this as well but it was hard to take him seriously because he calls ham bacon. And that isn't right. I have a feeling their bacon comes off of a moose too.

Too much consumption of bacon, I agree, can do a person in. At that last camp out I must have had about 15 pieces of bacon. That seemed ok at the time but as the day wore on it became not such a great thing. I'll spare you. And when I say 15 pieces of bacon I mean maybe 25 pieces or more of bacon. I love bacon - have I mentioned that? But if you are ever camping with my brother-in-law Jacque, you might want to take a set amount of bacon and then get far far away from his camper. Just fair warning.

I'm not sure how to wrap up this piece on bacon except with a sentence full of puns. Which I've now done. I love bacon. There really isn't a lot more to say. If you want to know how to cook bacon or other such things then click on one of the hub links I've provided below.  Patty Inglish even gives you a hub about bacon treats for your dogs.  So check them out... and bon appetit!


Kevin Bacon is pretty awesome too...

      Derek is a sick Canadian. That is for sure! I'm starting to regret not slipping Kevin Bacon into this hub. It might need a revision!

      One good thing you can do with raw bacon is wrap it around your ween and give it a good tug. Then wash it off and fry it.
