Celebrate Bacon Week

 Bacon and tomato polenta-crust pie

Australian Gourmet Traveller just informed me that it’s Bacon Week in Australia. Since I like to support the customs of other countries, I will celebrate in solidarity! Bacon is one of the most delicious foods ever, so it’s fitting that it gets an entire week to be feted. The magazine provided a list of sixteen of the editors’ favorite bacon recipes, including intriguing items like Maple, bacon and pumpkin tart and Citrus-glazed sticky bacon with apple and fennel salad

Other tasty choices from the magazine are Bacon and tomato polenta-crust pie (pictured top), and something a bit lighter, Potato, bacon and pickled fennel salad. If none of these strikes your fancy, there is certainly no shortage of celebratory bacon recipes elsewhere in the EYB Library. With over 8,000 choices, it will be difficult to narrow the field down to just one week’s worth of delectable fare. 

We’ve got bacon burgers of all persuasions, a plethora of bacon side dishes, a fair number of desserts with bacon (I think my husband will adore the Smoked bacon-bourbon apple crisp by Steven Raichlen), and even a handful of drinks featuring bacon. Break out the frying pans and join in the celebration!
