15 Ways to make bacon better than bacon
As our bacon obsession rages on, I thought it might be useful to explore some ways to make everyone's favorite salty meat even better. I know, I know... bacon needs no help when it comes to being delicious, but I think you might agree that these ideas don't hurt either.
1. Turn it into a taco
The new and improved taco.
2. Better yet, turn it into a mac 'n' cheese-stuffed taco
Scratch that last one. This is the newer and more improved taco.
3. Put it in a squeeze bottle
The jury seems to be out on whether this is a real product, but God, I hope it is. I mean, it's squeezable bacon.
4. Use it to merge hot dogs and hamburgers into turtles
When melding meat with meat, more meat makes it better.
5. Stuff it with peanut butter, and deep-fry it
Bacon. Peanut butter. Deep-fried. All these words are music to my ears.
6. Decorate a cake with it
Bacon > sprinkles. The end.
7. Put ice cream in the middle of it
Putting something tasty into bacon is beneficial to both foods.
8. Stuff a grilled cheese into it
More proof to the above comment.
9. Make surf and turf sushi
You can admit it. You don't really like nori.
10. Coat it in Nutella
Nutella ranks up there with bacon on the deliciousness scale, so combining the two makes perfect sense.
11. Add alcohol

No, no. Not bacon, lettuce and tomato. This kind of BLT.

Because you can and you should.
