How do I love thee bacon? Let me count the ways. Yes, it is so good it makes me quote Shakespeare (badly, but still). Because it’s the weekend and brunch is my favorite meal in the world, I’ve rounded up my favorite bacon recipes. This includes its Italian cousin pancetta. The only difference between bacon and pancetta is how they are cured. Regular bacon is traditionally brined and smoked. Pancetta is cured using lots seasoning and rolled up in a casing to hold its shape. Here are the delectable recipes in no particular order!
Butternut Squash Pancetta Fettuccine
Roasted Butternut Squash Risotto
Apple Cheddar Bacon Grilled Cheese
Sweet Potato Maple Bacon Fritters
There you go, friends! I hope you enjoyed my ode to one of my favorite, incredible, versatile ingredients. It’s all for the love of bacon! xoxo
