I’ve showed you a bunch of times that Cheese and Bacon go ridiculously well together. In fact, Andrew Back Bacon also recently posted an article dedicated solely to bacon and cheese recipes. I’ve also shown you on a couple of occasions that when bacon is paired with beer it’s also delicious, such as the Bacon Beer Bread recipe and the Tailgate Nachos recipe. Just recently I showed you, via the Bacon and Egg Cups of Awesomeness, that Bacon and Spinach is also an excellent combination (but I’m sure you knew that already, as well). What’s better than three awesome combinations? The combinations of THOSE combinations! Boo-Yah!

Best Bacon and Cheese Recipes The World Has Ever Seen

When I was compiling the best bacon and chicken recipes last week, I noticed that one thing that kept coming up was cheese. And why not? Bacon and cheese have been married since a very wise man created the bacon cheeseburger. It’s actually pretty surprising that bacon and cheese are not joined more often – why don’t people put cheese on their bacon when they are making it for breakfast? To make up for the frightening lack of bacon-covered cheese in our particular universe (I imagine there is some parallel universe where bacon and cheese do spend much of their time melted on each other), I have compiled the list of the best bacon and cheese recipes that the ever-fertile hive mind of the Internet has to offer.

Breakfast is totally under appreciated. It is the most important meal of the day, but people tend to rush out of the house and substitute it with an energy bar, a glass of juice or nothing at all! I say we end this madness!

Bacon and eggs are the quintessential breakfast, but, to be frank, that’s kind of boring. How about we add a little flare? How bout we make it so that things can be prepped ahead of time? How bout we make it friggin’ delicious?! This might be a bit, bullish. But I am going to state that this is by far the Best Bacon and Eggs Recipe Ever! What I love about this recipe is you can substitute pretty much anything into it.

Bacon + Marshmallows = Delicious?

Bacon has been having a bit of a love affair with desserts lately. Bacon chocolates, cupcakes and cookies are so old school they are almost passé (Almost, I said! How can anything with bacon be passé?). But there’s always room for more, and even crazier desserts. So far, no one has talked about bacon and marshmallows. That’s why today, I’m going to introduce you to this bizarre and gooey world of bacon marshmallow desserts. Details after the break.

This is a tribute to my favourite Iron Chef episode, Battle Parmigiano Reggiano – the “undisputed King of Cheeses” as Chef Mario Batali puts it. This episode contained some of the greatest recipes I’ve ever seen. I kinda feel bad for Alton Brown. He probably has the worst job in the world. Not only does he have to make sure he’s spitting out correct information the entire episode, he has to smell all the delicious creations… and then he can’t eat them. Worst… tease… ever.

In any case, here’s my tribute. They made this dish in the battle I mentioned above, probably the only dish I’d come close to recreating with any sort of success.

Make Your Own Bacon-Powered Battery

You know when I said that I didn’t think that bacon could do anything that would surprise me – and then I told you about a bacon keyboard that is being used to get birds to tweet on Twitter? Well, apparently, even after that wack-job of nuttiness, bacon still has a few tricks up its sleeve (if it even has sleeves). I have one of those tricks for you today – get ready to read all about the bacon battery. But that’s just the beginning. A whole load more are on their way, thanks to the Instructables Bacon Challenge. Full details follow after these messages (or when you click the link).

Birds Use a Bacon Keyboard to Tweet on Twitter

Every day I think that there aren’t many new ways that bacon can get involved in something crazy. What can it possibly do next that I haven’t heard of? After all, there have been bacon tattoos, bacon sushi and bacon cologne – just to name a few. But bacon is a gift that always keeps on giving. And today, I get to tell you something especially ridiculous. I get to tell you about a man in Latvia, his bacon keyboard, and a set of amazing birds who tweet on Twitter. Full details of the bacon-related wackiness follows:

The Best Bacon Soups the World Has Ever Seen

We may think that the time for soups is coming to a close for the year, but the thing about soups – the secret fact that no one seems to realize – is that they are awesome and should be eaten pretty much every week. And it should also be pointed out that we haven’t had a very good spring and winter in some parts of the country. It never feels like it is getting warmer. So why not eat some bacony soup? Mama, tells you to! Below, I’ve collected my favourite bacon soups from across the web, and I’m delivering them safe to the comfort of your computer screen.

The Top Bacon and Chicken Recipes

Bacon and chicken? They live together peacefully in the barnyard. Fortunately, they also live quite peacefully on either side of our plates. Today – because I’m such a nice guy – I thought I’d toss out some of the best bacon and chicken recipes I can find on the Internet. Trust me, you’ll love ‘em. Oink and cluck, indeed.

1. Chicken, Bacon and Ranch Croissants

I have a friend who is absolutely crazy for ranch dressing. She’ll pour it on pretty much everything. It’s just her thing. And because she is a wise and awesome woman, she also loves bacon. I think I know who might like this meal

2. Bacon Cheeseburger Chicken

We might be onto a thing here: this recipe also includes ranch dressing! But this recipe’s secret weapon is that it is utterly jammed with cheese. And then crusted over with bacon. I suppose that some people might find the picture of the completed meal “gross”, but it certainly gets my tastebuds watering!

3. Chicken Bacon Spinach Fettucine Alfredo

When the creator of this particular recipe served it to her kids, “They questioned the green stuff, but still ate it anyways.” I too, question the green stuff! But I don’t question the addition of bacon to fettucine alfredo. After all, alfredo sauce is basically Italian for “ranch dressing and cheese.”

4. BBQ Chicken and Bacon Pizza

Bacon and chicken on a pizza is sort of a no-brainer, isn’t it? If you are going to put chicken on it, you *have* to throw some bacon on. It’s just how these things work. I won’t mention the awesomeness of the cheese. That sort of speaks for itself. And what it’s saying, very quietly, is eaaaaat meeeee, eaaaaaat meeeeee.

5. Chicken, Bacon and Cream Cheese Mini Tacquitos

These little apps are apparently very good for when you are watching “NASCAR.” I don’t know heads nor tails about American car races, but tacquitos with bacon and cream cheese sounds like the perfect snack for watching cars driving repeatedly in circles. Okay, I admit it. I have no idea what that last sentence means.

6. Bacon, Ranch and Chicken Mac and Cheese

Image Provided by firstlookthencook.wordpress.com

Hey everyone! Look! It’s four of our favourite things – bacon, ranch, chicken and cheese – all sort of gooed together and then baked! I can imagine that this would be a great cure for the Monday blahs. Or a great cure for an empty stomach on pretty much any day.

7. Chicken, Bacon and Avocado Quesadillas

After all of those really hearty meals, it’s a good idea to dial it down a little. Also, it is a mathematically proven fact that avocados and bacon are meant to be eaten in the same meal; therefore, these quesadillas will be delicious. QED. (Chicken and avocados aren’t bad neighbours, either.)

8. Chicken Bacon Crescent Ring

Image Provided by marisrecipes.blogspot.com

A lot of chicken and bacon recipes seem to be app-focused: this one is for bite-sized sausage-roll type apps, but with chicken and bacon instead of sausage. Think of them as “pig and chicken in a blanket.” All snuggled up, and ready to eat!

9. BBQ Bacon Apple Chicken

Image Provided by katesrecipebox.wordpress.com

Probably the simplest recipe we’re showing you today, but also probably the best: put bacon, apples, chicken and bbq sauce in a slow cooker. Let slow cook. Eat melting deliciousness and pray to whatever deity you need to.

Bacon Smoothies and Prince Harry’s Bacon Sandwich

Bacon news comes fast and furious sometimes, and we thought we’d give you a bit of a round-up of two of the best the Internet has to offer. The two stories are from completely opposite parts of the world. In one story, we have a man in America who is living the life of a part-time monk. In the other, we have some royalty – a Prince, in fact. But they are both joined together by their love of bacon. The full details after the jump.
