Attention Bacon Lovers: These Are The 10 Best Bacon Recipes You'll Find On The Internet (2024)

When it comes to making food, there are a few ingredients that can stop anybody right in their tracks. A dark, dark chocolate is one of them, sometimes a sharp, aged cheese can be another. Still, few ingredients have made the internet fall in love more than one salty, savory meat: bacon. Few could argue that bacon is one of the most delicious foods on the planet and whenever we taste it our brains seem to shut off. Still, just making plain old strips of bacon might not be as exciting as it once was.

Fortunately, there are lots of incredible ways to use bacon that will have you rethinking your entire approach to this magical meat ingredient. With that in mind, here are 15 of the absolute best bacon recipes we’ve found on the internet.

In particular, asparagus lends itself well to being wrapped in a meat packaging and baked rather than simply eaten plain. The recipe is pretty simple: just get some chicken breasts and bacon, slice them into thin strips, wrap them around asparagus spears and bake them for a delicious treat.
