There are so many different ways to use bacon – from drink garnish to breakfast staple to main course MVP.   Any way you slice it, bacon has undoubtedly made its way into our lives as a savory, “de-facto” go-to meal companion that’s hard to top… no matter what you’re topping off.  For the adventurous “foodies” among us, here’s some bacon-focused recipes we’ve found online that we love so much we want to share them with you.  Give them a try – your taste buds will thank you!

Bacon Chocolate Chip Cookies

We couldn’t make a list of our favorite bacon-inspired recipes without including desert!  This recipe is one of our own and in our humble opinion is the best chocolate chip cookie recipe there is.  We dare you to find a better one!  Check it out in the recipe section of our website or take a direct route there by clicking HERE.

the “better” bacon.

When it comes to our products and our process, we don’t take shortcuts.  Our strict adherence to time-honored traditions and methods sets us apart from your mainstream commodity producers.  We pride ourselves in our commitment to producing  finely crafted meats the way it’s been done in Europe for centuries.

Fully Cooked, you say?

Yes – believe it or not, our Double Hickory Smoked Bacon comes to you fully cooked.  If this has you scratching your head in confusion, you’re not alone.  Most of us here in the good ‘ole USA have fond childhood memories of the folks buying raw bacon and (over)cooking it to the point of crumbling to the touch.  Well, in Europe that’s sacrilege (and we tend to agree).

Our Double Hickory Bacon right in the smokehouse, giving it a rich, creamy texture and a fantastic taste.  This allows you to use bacon in ways you never thought of before, as it’s safe to eat right out of the package.
