Sunday's Stupid Thread-The Best Bacon

As I sit in my TT making breakfast, cast iron skillet, bacon, fresh coffee, thinking it doesn't get any better then this. A view of some NM mountains at sunrise is a bonus.

What is the best bacon? It can only be properly fried in a very darkened, some would say dirty, cast iron skillet, next to a couple of eggs (Lovastatin is handy...).

I was convinced I had to try a Virginia Bacon. It is way to salty, way to much rind, I slice it way to thick, it is way to good.

What is yoru must buy brand?

Jac in heaven...

Favorite is thick sliced Burger's country smoked bacon: taste, texture, aroma...we love it WAY too much. It's a Missouri product and may not be available widely, but it's worth the hunt. I keep that and their small trimmings package on hand to dice and flavor other foods. The company offers a variety of ham/bacon offerings. YUM! ~G

I agree with maxandgeorgia,

Burgers Smokehouse bacon is great, I prefer the pepper, but the city or country is fine also. They mail order and also have great hams. I usually buy the ends and pieces, same bacon and a lot cheaper.

Bacon--food of the gods!

Bacon!!!

Bacon!!!!

(If not for the furry nose in the above commercials, that would be me!)

I think the absolute hand-down most amazing food I have ever had is bacon-wrapped scallops. Wow. That's all I can say. Wow.

Burger's or J.C. Potter's thick sliced. We have Blue and Gold here in Oklahoma, but I don't know if it's available in other locations. I drive to MO. to buy Burger's when I can. It's that good, but hard to find unless you order it on line.

Smile Bringing home the bacon

What a cute thread!

Being from the Detroit area we used to go to the Windsor Farm Market across the river and get Canadian bacon. It was the best. I think the vendors were Hungarian. I guess its a lot like what other folks call back bacon, but much better than what you find on an egg mcmuffin.
