Like many of you, we have visitors we’re hosting next week. We’re pretty excited! And while you don’t get more low key hosts than Ed and I – we do like to plan something special for one or two of the meals.

(Last time they visited was when Ed debuted his bacon-wrapped stuffed turkey roll – so he’s set the bar high for himself.)

I went cruising for a decadent recipe or two to share with our guests – and I knew at least one would have bacon. 

Oh, Bacon, I’ve tried to quit you so many times. But you’re too dang delicious!

Such a rich, indulgent treat.  You can’t think of it as a great source of protein or iron like other red meats. Where it shines is it’s got gorgeous flavour, but most of its macronutrient profile is just plain old fat. Saturated fat at that.

Heartwarming? Yes! Heart-healthy? I wish.

So bacon is best asked to do the job it’s the best at: adding amazing flavouring to a meal – or a decadent treat. Both of which are really important!  That’s what this collection of must make bacon recipes gives you – delicious recipes that include the rich, savoury, unique flavour of bacon – that your guests and family will love!
