No matter how you slice it, dice it, or cook it, a bite of bacon is sure to please your pallet. The average American alone is consuming almost 18 pounds of bacon annually. Humans have been eating this meaty treat for a very long time, specifically since around 1500 B.C., and we’ve managed to find an assortment of ways to prepare our pork.
One of them being, using your oven to bake instead of fry on the stove top. Using a sheet of tin foil with folded, one inch ridges stretched horizontally across the length of your baking sheet, you will be able to lay your strips of bacon vertically on top of the tin foil. This method will elevate the strips to prevent them from becoming grease soaked and messy.
It’s been noticed that New York and Los Angeles are at top of the list in regards to bacon consumption. However, whether you live on the east coast or the west coast or any place in between, it’s no doubt that plenty of people across the U.S.A. are enjoying an abundance of bacon.
Because of our love for this juicy, savory, and definitely tasty piece of meat, we’ve incorporated bacon’s undoubtedly distinctive flavor into alcoholic beverages, such as beers and vodkas. Who knows what will be the next invention to honor our popular dish, but anything bacon related will surely satisfy.
