Bacon Bits - The Fairy Dust of the Food Community

Posted by Ryan Shannon on

Yes, you read that right. I can't lay claim to that awesome description of Bacon Bits, that comes from Jim Gaffigan. I wish I had said it first though, because it's a really accurate description. Bacon makes everything better. You can add it to salads, pastas, sandwiches, even sweets and your taste buds thank you every time you do so. Bacon bits are a genius invention, they provide all the flavour of bacon without the messy cooking and clean up. So, with our Ground Bacon, we've provided you with our great bacon, without the fuss. You're Welcome. Add the ground bacon to eggs in the morning, sprinkle them on your pasta dishes, add them to a salad. You can buy them in our web store or at our retail markets. Still stumped on how to make use of them? Here's some suggestions...

Bacon Condiments - Add bacon bits to condiments and dressings to punch up their flavour. Grainy Bacon Dijon? Smokey Bacon Ketchup? Baconnaise? Bacon Caeser Dressing? The possibilities are endless.

BLTA Lettuce Wraps - Dice up some tomatoes and avocado. Fill up large lettuce leaves with your diced veggies and top with bacon bits and salt and pepper. Drizzle with a little mayo and you've got a light and tasty lunch. 

Bacon Deviled Eggs - Make your deviled eggs as normal, but add bacon bits to your mix. Jazz it up with a little chipotle or jalapeno for even more flavour. 

Maple Bacon Cheesecake - Do I even need to say anything else?

Ultimate Garlic Cheese Bread -  Cut a baguette into slices, top with garlic butter, grated cheese and bacon bits. Bake until cheese melts.
