It's National Bacon Day!!

Enjoy it mes amis! I just stuck a pound in the oven, I love it made that way. No profanity getting popped with grease, way easier clean up. And I plan on buying more when I go grocery shopping today (I have 10# of it waiting for me at my sisters, but she's 2+ hours away!).

Love me some bacon! I cook up 4 or 5 pounds at a time in the oven, then cool it completely and put it into a gallon Ziploc and into the freezer. So nice to just grab a few slices as needed and nuke or throw them in a hot pan to reheat.

Bacon has gotten SO EXPENSIVE! I may do sausage patties for a while instead!

Where are you finding it in the bulk packs like that, Chris?

My sister's meat market, she let's lets me know when good sales are. It's been a few months between the bacon sales, I wish it was more often.

It's a few minutes from Auburn, Indiana if anyone is close.

Wow, you lucky girl!

Wish I lived close enough to take advantage of that. Last good deal I got was at Grocery Outlet and it was about $3.50/lb in 3 pound packs. Nice thick-cut stuff. I cooked up 6 pounds of it!
