December 30th is Bacon Day, and I for one can totally get behind this holiday. After all, who doesn't love a side of bacon with their eggs? Or on a BLT? Or, even in soups? On a slider?

As you can tell, I really like bacon and will eat it with any meal. Breakfast, lunch, dinner, even brunch. I have even had bacon on a donut, it was a maple frosted bacon bismark. So yummy.

For those who don't eat pork, or are trying to watch their cholesterol, there is turkey bacon, but, it's just not the same thing. I have had it, but, if I am going to eat bacon, it has to be the real thing. Crispy though, I don't like it too soggy.

Raise a piece of bacon and celebrate Bacon Day with me. A food that really should have it's very own food group.
