15 Recipes To Celebrate International Bacon Day

by Spicie Foodie on August 29, 2013

Is bacon still the “it” food or has the fad passed? Don’t get me wrong I love bacon but during the big hype there where some really crazy bacon products and food creations. I’m a bit traditional when it comes to bacon, so you’ll never see a bacon sundae here nor will you ever have to hear about me buying bacon flavoured lip balm — yuck!

Did you know that bacon has its very own holiday? It is called International Bacon Day and is celebrated every year, this year on August 31st. Not that many of us need another excuse to eat bacon, but here’s 15 scrumptious recipes so you too can celebrate this special day.

Thank you to all of the bloggers who where kind enough to share their recipes and photos.

I like typical traditional dishes with bacon. I saw somebody making bacon ice cream the other day O.O. not my kind of ice cream flavor lol
But I would go crazy for all the dishes that you have listed here with bacon. Amazing collection, needs to be shared.
