Beginning of Bacon Week!

Oh MY GAWD! I must definitely try this.

365.

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.
