I might need a Baconista!

To say I love bacon may be a bit of an understatement. I would be a vegetarian if it weren’t for this wonderfully crispy cured meat. Mmmm… My mouth is watering at the thought of baked bacon right now; with eggs, on a BLT, salad, or a hamburger. You name it and I usually love bacon with it. 

Pinterest has not been helping with my lust for bacon lately, and has been supplying me with way too many bacon recipes and inspiration. Hello food porn!

It is such a rare treat when we eat bacon in our house – the relatively health conscious part of my brain knows it’s not the best option for daily consumption – and well, I also don’t want the smell to linger in the oven for too long. Yes, I bake my bacon. 

The monkeys were ecstatic when they woke to me cooking a breakfast consisting of scrambled eggs with cheese and salsa, bacon and pancakes before dashing off to work.
(I don’t like to cook. Ever. Especially before the daily jolt of caffeine kicks in.)

This is what they devoured.
I didn't exactly follow the recipe and opted instead to pour Krusteaz Buttermilk Pancake mix over the already baked bacon.

The monkeys were happy and stuffed, and their hands were not as greasy as they could have been. Bacon pancakes=pancake napkins. Yes, folks, this was a winner in our house. I am kicking myself for only recently discovering the power of blending pancakes and bacon into one yummy concoction.

Next on the list to try: Bacon, Egg, and Toast Cups.

Yep, bacon makes just about everything better; however, I draw the line at bacon infused vodka or bacon ice cream.
