Bacon’s not just for your morning routine anymore. Though traditionally served with eggs and sausage as part of a full breakfast, over the past few years, bacon dishes (and drinks!) have been showing up at all times of day, ranging everything from creative salads to thirst-quenching cocktails.
Salt-cured, crispy and delicious, there are endless ways to enjoy this savory delight. Here are a few of our current favorite bacon dishes:
The Pig in Washington D.C. shakes up a “Pig Bloody” (Mary), a bacon-infused take on the brunch favorite nearly making it a meal itself. And don’t miss the “Bacon Old Fashioned,” a savory twist on a classic cocktail, made with bacon-washed bourbon, maple syrup and bitters.
The Chef’s Favorite Burger at Plan Check Kitchen + Bar is made with bacon two ways, cheese two ways, a sunny fried egg, hot sauce and ketchup leather — a creative take on the favorite tomato-based condiment.
