There’s more to bacon than just frying and serving it for breakfast. Many bacon recipes are available for anyone looking to get creative with their salt-cured pork. Whether light snacks or heavier meals, you can enjoy different types of bacon dishes that won’t make you umay. Here is a rundown of some of those creative recipes to satisfy your belly.
A list of bacon breakfast recipes is incomplete without eggs Benedict. This classic American breakfast dish combines poached eggs, hollandaise sauce, English muffins, and bacon. Don’t let scratch-made hollandaise intimidate you! Just keep practicing until you get the right consistency. In the meantime, you can up the ante with a good spoonful of Lady's Choice Bacon Spread on each muffin before topping with the layers.
Cheesy Baked Potato and Bacon Soup
Soup gets flack for being “too light” as a main meal. But the right ingredients can turn this around. Take a cheesy baked potato and bacon soup, for example. Creamy, delicious, and hearty, a soup like this can stand on its own. Add more veg like spinach or mushrooms and consider it among the bacon lunch recipes you regularly serve your family.
Like any regular spread, bacon jam tastes fantastic on sandwiches. It's also great in soups, salads, and pancakes. The best part? You don’t need to head out to buy a bottle anymore. You can cook a batch in as little as under an hour. And you only need onions, honey, butter, brown sugar, and delicious smoky bacon.
Bacon Meat Loaf
Pinoys are familiar with embutido and hardinera; these local versions of meat loaf go well with rice or bread. However, there's one thing these recipes are missing to make them taste even better. And this special ingredient is something you can easily find in supermarkets: bacon! Next time you’re preparing any version of meat loaf, wrap some bacon strips around for a special surprise your family will love.
Using bacon vinaigrette isn't standard practice. Much like many other dressings, its main ingredients are acid, mustard, and olive oil. But the real star of this recipe is bacon – plus its accompanying grease. The result is a flavorful symphony you can use on various bacon dinner recipes. Or you can even try using the vinaigrette as a marinade for meats and seafood.
Quiches get notoriously branded as breakfast or brunch fare. But there's more than meets the eye with this egg dish. The typical ingredients include eggs, cheese, and bacon, but you can take it beyond the morning meal by mixing in spinach, caramelized onions, asparagus, and sweet potatoes. Try adding nuts and seeds for extra texture, too. Enjoy it any time of the day you want, and don't let anyone tell you otherwise.
Instant Noodle Carbonara
Love fusion cuisine? Try this little ramen hack and dig into creamy carbonara-inspired noodles in minutes. Cook your instant noodles according to packet instructions, then go to town with the pork rashers. It’s a speedy comforting meal the whole family will enjoy after a long day at work, or a week filled with exams.
Bacon and Pineapple Fried Rice
Rice and ulam are an unbeatable pair for most Filipino families. And if you are on the go, a mashup of the two ensures you don't miss any necessary food groups. If you are team pineapple on pizza, this bacon and pinya fried rice might be for you. No special instructions are needed. Add as many pork strips as you want. You can also make them as crunchy or chewy as your little ones want. No judgment here!
Salt-cured pork is a versatile ingredient to add to a snack or a main meal. Don’t be afraid to reach out for a pack on your grocery trips. They can be a lifesaver on stressful days you don’t have lots of time to work in the kitchen. The key is to balance the pork with other nourishing ingredients. And be creative! So next time you search for bacon recipes, why not give one of the food options listed above a shot?
