Bacon is currently one of the most popular meat products in our refrigerators today. 1.7 billion pounds of bacon is consumed each year in the United States alone (although Denmark consumes more per capita). Bacon has achieved a cult-like following from people all over the world and its flavor and reputation has graced things like bacon flavored vodka, bacon flavored breath mints and bacon shaped bandages. Bacon is so popular that it has its own day of celebration (International Bacon Day was first started in 2000) and a full week to celebrate eating bacon and the joy it brings (Bacon Connoisseurs’ Week happens every year in March). Bacon is well known for its rich flavor and texture along with being a great addition to almost every meal. Everyone has a preferred way to eat bacon and it can be cooked in many different ways including frying, smoked, boiled, grilled, oven-baked and many more. It is a great addition to main courses and is a main ingredient in several other dishes.
