Oh MY GAWD! I must definitely try this.
Mmmm…Bacon! The smell, the crispy texture, the intense flavor and there are healthy ways to cook with it – in moderation. Every recipe this week will include bacon. You can substitute turkey bacon or a veggie bacon – try a few different types of bacon to mix it up. Order bacon from the deli counter and taste the difference – they usually offer amazing different smoky flavors. Always look for a leaner bacon with more pink/red meat than white fat – thick cuts are usually a bit meatier.
