One of the most popular sandwiches is made with its crispy strips partnered with tomato slices and lettuce leaves. The star of this sandwich is bacon. There’s nothing like a BLT to satisfy the taste buds.
Heat up those frying pans to enjoy the symphony of sizzles and pops in celebration of Bacon Lovers’ Day, observed annually on August 20.
The smoky scent of bacon, wafting from the kitchen, beckons early risers. It makes a lunchtime appearance in sandwiches and salads. At dinnertime, the trilogy of bacon appreciation is completed when it is sprinkled over baked potatoes or wrapped around chicken.
The smokey goodness is also an irresistible favorite of ‘man’s best friend’, which is why the flavor is often infused into dog treats. And if you think it’s just for savory recipes, think again. Bacon has found a home in such sweet confections as doughnuts and ice cream.
To celebrate Bacon Lovers’ Day, plan tonight’s dinner menu around this versatile star, and have lots of bacon-flavored beer on hand to wash it all down.
