Ditch the old fried bacon recipe that you’re accustomed to and try out these five ways to use bacon that you probably never knew existed.
1. Bacon Pancakes
Make bacon pancakes. Simply cook pancakes on a bacon grease-covered griddle, and sprinkle cooked bacon bits into the batter as the pancakes cook.
2. Bacon, Egg and Kale Sandwich
The bacon and egg sandwich is a delicious breakfast dish and the addition of cooked kale and onions results in a dish that is richer in nutrients.
3. Bacon Salt
You read right, bacon salt. Fry the bacon and leave it to dry up. Once dry, crush them. Mix the crushed bacon, salt, and pepper together to make this spice.
4. Whiskey Bacon Chicken
Simply grind bacon into a paste and use it to coat the chicken during marination and grilling. You could also put the chicken on skewers, and add bacon pieces between each bite.
5. Caramel Bacon Popcorn
Drizzle freshly made popcorn with a caramel-bacon sauce, then place it in the oven for one hour. Be sure to turn it every 10 minutes or so.
