The 20 Best Bacon Recipes Ever

Best Bacon Recipes
It’s a known fact that everything in life goes better with bacon. Once used specifically for breakfast (often times paired with pancakes, eggs and hash browns), bacon has really branched out over the years to be incorporated into both lunch and dinner as well. While bacon is nothing short of heavenly by itself, adding it to some of your favorite dishes results in flavors you couldn’t even begin to imagine. We underwent the difficult task of hunting down bacon recipes all over the web, preparing them, and deciding which ones deserved a spot on list of the 20 best bacon recipes of all time. So which bacon recipes made the cut? Scroll down, cancel all of your plans, and get ready to spend the upcoming weekend locked down in the kitchen. Bacon lovers rejoice!

Cheddar Bacon Chicken Tenders

10. Cheddar Bacon Chicken Tenders

We tried a handful of different bacon chicken recipes. Most of them were good, but didn’t really stand out enough to make the cut. These, on the other hand, were entirely different. They take about 20 minutes to bake, and when you’re done, you’ll have a snack that’s worthy of the state fair. [View Recipe]

Bacon Cinnamon Rolls

11.  Bacon Cinnamon Rolls

We came in with high hopes on this one, and we were still blown away. Granted, cinnamon rolls are one of our personal favorite desserts, but these are downright divine. It’s nothing more than a scrumptious cinnamon roll that has been rolled with strips of bacon, and the best part is just how easy these things are to prepare. Toss them into the oven for about 15 minutes or so, and you’re ready to roll. [View Recipe]

Chocolate covered strawberries are a huge hit in the dessert world. So why not take the salty goodness of bacon, and dip that bad boy up in some decadent chocolate as well?

It will make all the difference in the finished product. [View Recipe]

Skillet Bacon Mac and Cheese

13.  Skillet Bacon Mac and Cheese

Mac and cheese is great all by itself, and while we’ve had some great variations on the classic (from lobster to hamburger), this cheesy creation cooked up on a skillet was just right. There is one downfall with this recipe, and that’s the fact that it takes about 1 hour and 15 minutes to make from start to finish (with 50 minute cook time), but it’s worth the wait. [View Recipe]

Peanut Butter Bacon Banana French Toast

14. Peanut Butter Banana Bacon French Toast

We remember growing up as little boys, throwing bacon and peanut butter on two slices of bread, and not thinking anything of it. For some reason though, we never thought of how good it would be to swap that regular old white bread out for some French Toast. Add some bananas to the mix, and you have the perfect breakfast sandwich. [View Recipe]

15. Bacon BBQ Meatloaf

We are your typical meat and potatoes type of guys. With that being said, it’s no surprise that we fell head over heels for this recipe. Bacon is always better. [View Recipe]

Your dreams of being able to spread bacon all over everything can now be realized with this creation. Made from onions, garlic, maple syrup, brown sugar, pepper, coffee, cider vinegar, and bacon, this stuff will make any food taste better. That jar may look like a lot, but once you start smothering, you’ll be empty before you know it.  [View Recipe]

Maple Bacon Smores

18. Maple Bacon S’mores

If you’re a sucker for S’mores (who isn’t?), this recipe is a must try. The recipe cooks up a dozen big S’mores, so you should be good with one batch – as long as you’re not sharing with anyone. In that case maybe make 2 batches. Yeah, they’re that good. [View Recipe]

Bacon Egg Pizza
