Bacon Recipes That Will Blow Your Mind

Maple-Bacon Brunch Cupcakes: Bacon cupcakes? Let bacon take your taste buds on a breakfast-themed sweet-and-savory adventure.

Bacon-Wrapped Turkey with Chipotle and Orange: Woven bacon? Simply wrapping things in bacon is Bacon 101 (still delicious!), so take things to the next level with a woven bacon lattice. Remember when you learned basket-weaving in summer camp? This is just like that. Except edible. It’s never too early to start planning your Thanksgiving menu, so take note! But you could also use this technique on a whole chicken or even a pork loin for double-pork deliciousness.

This twisted version features a delightful ribbon of bacon and a coating of brown sugar and black pepper for a sweet and sassy kick.


How to Bake Bacon: Put away your cast-iron skillet, because this bacon-baking hack makes it simpler than ever to get crispy-crunchy perfection with very minimal effort. No more grease popping and messes on the stove!

    I have never thought of wrapping a whole turkey in bacon before. I bet my husband would really like if I did that.

  3. 3

    Holy moly. Bacon cupcakes?! I’ve got to get in on that action.

  4. 4

    My sister just mailed us some chocolate that had bacon in it and it was super yummy. Those cupcakes sure look good… maybe because I like sweet/salty combinations.

    There is no way to go wrong with bacon. I have never thought of baking bacon, but why not, I am sure it is awesome!

    Nice! We recently learned that my 5 year old loves bacon… It’s a can’t-get-enough-of-it kind of love. These recipes are so perfect!

  12. 12

    Those look absolutely delicious! I’ve tried making different recipes with bacon but I never get it quite right…as they say, practice makes perfect!

  13. 13

    If I made the bacon breadsticks, my family would never know the joy of tasting them. I do have one daughter that doesn’t like bacon, I don’t know where I failed as a parent.

  14. 14

    I’m not a huge bacon fan, but my husband and daughter are. I’m thinking of making them the peppered bacon twists. That looks pretty good.

  15. 15

    Everything looks so good! I would love to try those muffins.

    Drooling over here. Those muffins look amazingly delicious! Ok, anything with bacon is delicious but I definitely need to whip those up this weekend!

  24. 24

    I am not really a fan of bacon–not that I don”t like the taste once in a while–but I suffer afterwards–bad gallbladders and bacon do not mix-trust me on this one!

  25. 25

    The turkey on the bacon is a crazy idea!! Bacon is a staple in our house it’s so good.

  26. 26

    Bacon makes everything taste better. I will have to try the bacon wrapped turkey this year for the holidays. I bet it would be very juicy.

  27. 27

    I never would have thought to wrap a turkey in bacon. I bet it would lock in all the juices from the meat. I might try it for the holidays.

  28. 28

    They all look awesome but I don’t think I have the patience to wrap a turkey! The bacon bread twists on the other hand may happen

  29. 29

    Bacon makes everything taste better! My husband would think he were in heaven if we wrapped our turkey in bacon this year!

  30. 30

    Now that looks like my kind of Thanksgiving turkey. I’m sure baking the bacon leaves it more crispy and less greasy, which I certainly prefer.

  31. 31

    I want to try those bacon breadsticks! yum

  32. 32

    You had me at bacon. As far as I am concerned, you really can’t go wrong as long as bacon is involved. These all sound amazing.
