See, bacon could be called the gateway meat. We know more than a few ex-vegetarians who couldn’t resist bacon's charms, and why should they? Bacon is smoky, salty, and sweet -- it hits all the right notes, is perfect for any meal of the day, and is downright irresistible. Bacon is worthy of its hype, making everything it touches tastier. Better.
In honor of our upcoming Piglet Tournament of Cookbooks, here are 10 of our favorite bacon recipes. Go ahead, be a greedy little piggy, and make them all.
The Piglet—inspired by The Morning News' Tournament of Books—is where the 16 most notable cookbooks of the year face off in a NCAA-style bracketed tournament. Watch the action and weigh in on the results!
