I have made my fair share of awesome cookies. One of the most popular recipes I have ever made for this site was the Chocolate Cookies Recipe. It was a smash hit and has become legend around the bacon blog world (or at least that is how I feel about it). I decided to try to beat my previous Chocolate Cookies recipe with this awesome Bacon Peanut Butter Cookie Recipe. In all honesty, I like these cookies better. I made these a bit softer and jam-packed with flavour thanks to the caramelized bacon strips. For the readers who don’t like chocolate but love the idea of bacon and cookies together. You need to try this recipe, the ‘bacon candy’ in the cookies just bring out this awesome flavour.

Totally Awesome Bacon Burger Recipes

With summer here, I’m dying to get out and fire up my grill. I love the taste of meat, but I love it even more when the meat has been slightly set on fire from flaming charcoal briquettes. As well, we should always remember the many positive side effects of BBQing.

The BBQ gets you out of the house and into the sunshine, and it’s pretty much the only cooking method you are encouraged to do with a beer in your hand. Most of all, grilling gives me the excuse to pair two types of meat together: bacon with whatever else I’m cooking. You aren’t normally allowed to do that. But outside, ALL OF THE RULES GO OUT THE WINDOW. So, to celebrate the start of the grilling season and the warm bliss of biting into bacony, grilled goodness, I’ve gathered together the best bacon burger and hot dog recipes. Full details after the break.

Top 25 Amazing Bacon Dessert Recipes

We’ve been doing this so long that I feel like I’ve seen every possible bacon dessert out there. I’m sure I’m wrong though – every day I see something new about bacon that I couldn’t have possibly considered before. Because I’ve seen so many, I thought it would be helpful to give you a wrap-up of twenty-five of the best Bacon Desserts. But hey! If you know of some more, comment below. This list is in no specific ranking order and yes I included our bacon dessert recipes. Why? Because Chef Rob is awesome and makes the best bacon recipes in the world. Chef Rob bribed me to say that, I’d say he is second best… Chef Massimo Capra is the best.

The full list appears after the break.

When I think back to my escapades in Germany many moons ago, one of the things that stands out in my mind is the meals that were provided to me by the gracious family that had taken me in – these meals predominantly being breakfast. Now, traditional German breakfasts are different than those had in North America; German breakfasts involve cold-cut sandwiches served with cheeses and wonderfully fresh bread from the bakery down the street. The breads were also quite different – extremely flavourful and much denser than I was used to. Quite hearty! It was a perfect way to start the day.

Now how about starting the day with some beer, too! How, you ask? Well, put it in with the bread. Add some bacon and you’ve got the bread of champions. This is, by far, the easiest bread you will ever make. You don’t have to knead it. You don’t have to let it rise. All you have to do is mix your ingredients, throw it in a bread-pan and be on your way. I added some fried bacon to it, but that’s as hard as it gets. I don’t even really need to write instructions (Don’t worry, I’ll do it anyway)!

The Top 10 Best Bacon Sandwich Recipes

Well, we know you all loved our top 10 favorite breakfast bacon recipes. So today, and without further ado, here’s our list of our favourite bacon sandwich recipes. Enjoy!

1. Egg Sandwich with Spinach, Brie and Maple Bacon

Brie is sort of the greatest thing ever (aside from bacon). It has an incredible odour part of its charm. Melt that sucker over some bacon and I can almost (almost) overlook the fact this baby has some spinach on it. I know, I know – spinach tastes fine. It’s just that I know that bacon and spinach are mortal enemies and want to remain forever apart.

2. Candied Bacon Sandwich

This one isn’t much beyond some candied bacon between a couple pieces of bread. But any excuse to eat candied bacon, and I’m willing to go for it. The plus of eating it as a sandwich means that anyone calls you on the fact you are kind of eating dessert, you can point out that it’s actually lunch.

3. Grilled Cheese, Apple and Bacon Sandwich

You know how I said above that it’s irritating that a sandwich would have both bacon and spinach? This sandwich avoids the problem of spinach and bacon contact by substituting sweet apple instead. Mmmm. They use “cheese” in their recipe, but you could try using brie. Just suggesting.

4. Bacon, Fig and Pork Sandwich

Yah, that’s right. Bacon and figs. DEAL WITH IT, OKAY? I’m already very angry that this is not in my mouth right this moment. I demand the universe fix this situation immediately.

5. Chipotle Guacamole and Bacon Sandwich

You had me at “Chipotle.” And then you sealed the deal with “Guacamole.” And, I of course knew that was the truest love that could be because bacon was clearly included in there. I’m naming my children in honour of this sandwich.

6. Bacon, Cheese and Pickle Sandwich

This is kind of a down home version of the Rouladen that we showcased last week, except in sandwich form. I’m particularly excited about what the pickle will do to the cheese. I can only imagine it will be breathtaking.

7. Barbecued Brisket and Bacon Sandwich

This dish is sort of a bit of a cross-cultural tease. Jewish cuisine is famous for crafting beautiful briskets; however, they are also famous for not having a fondness for bacon. Clearly, someone needed to fix this situation, and I’m glad they did.

8. Elvis Bacon Sandwich

Elvis is famous for many things: his music, his leisure suits, his hair. But the one thing we here at the Republic of Bacon love most about him was his bacon innovation. His sandwich – the Elvis Sandwich – is a genius combination of peanut butter, bacon, bananas and marshmallow fluff. You really have to hand it to the man. He knows how to hit a home run.

9. Bacon, Pear and Brie Sandwich

You can tell I like bacon and cheese together, right? Yeah. I thought so.

10. Chicken Club Sandwich

Any mention of great bacon sandwiches needs to save some room for a traditional chicken club sandwich. A great meal to have at brunch, lunch or dinner, it’s also a popular hangover-remedy snack. Clearly, the gods of bacon were smiling on us the day the Chicken Club sandwich was born.

Five Amazing and Easy Bacon Appetizers for the Holidays

The holiday party season is upon us. My favourite part of the holidays is definitely all the eating that goes with it, particularly when that eating includes some bacon. I’m also a big fan of making things for the holidays that have as few steps as possible between the ingredients and eating those ingredients. The holidays are for enjoying yourself with friends, not sweating in a kitchen. On that note, here’s five delicious bacon-based appetizers that require minimal cooking.
