Oh My Achin’ BACON! Bacon TACOS! Bacon Crust Pizza + More Bacon Abominations!

First, let’s make one thing clear: A burger can put anyone in a good mood.

Then, to add to the goodness of the burger, you add some bacon – and the world becomes a better place.

Oh, My Achin’ Bacon!

Ok, time to put the brakes on! As the above picture proves, even bacon can be over-used…let’s remember what we are talking about here: Bacon is a cured meat prepared from a pig. It is to be enjoyed, not abused.

Bacon Taco Shells!

Look at how bacon can turn a plain, boring taco into something magical…with the right mix of fresh lettuce, tomato and cheese, this taco will rock!


Same idea: bacon takes over and, with the right ingredients, turns the ordinary into the extraordinary…

Bacon is meant to wrap up other flavors…it’s an ingredient, not THE ONLY INGREDIENT!

So, as you can see, bacon is always ready to step up and make life better….but don’t forget: Bacon needs love, too.


There’s nothing worse than people who take perfectly good bacon and do things to it that are not honorable. Let’s look at food that, as the classic prog-rock band YES says, veers too “close to the edge…”

Bacon-Wrapped Meatloaf With A Layer Of Mac And Cheese

I’m torn about this one…bacon-wrapped meatloaf has a lot of good going for it – yes, it will be very rich, but there is a case to be made here…but a layer of mac’n’cheese in the middle? Too much of a good thing? I say yes…now it’s a challenge more than a meal – but I’d love to hear your thoughts on this one…and what about this?

Sloppy “Bacon Joe” On A Krispy Kreme

I know a lot of people hate the idea of a Krispy Kreme hamburger bun under any circumstances – so sickly sweet – but now add bacon-infused Sloppy Joe mix? Ouch! My bacon is achin’!

The Double Bacon Hamburger Fatty Melt

This thing is three bacon-stuffed grilled cheese sandwiches for buns, cheese, bacon and two four-ounce beefs patties. Let’s be honest: this isn’t a meal, it’s an obstacle course….nobody eats this – well, except to win a bet and a pitcher of cheap beer. It’s time to say “enough” to this bacon abuse…and speaking of an abomination against bacon:

A Bacon Crust Pizza With Bacon!

The pizza crust is MADE OF BACON! C’mon, this will kill you! Bacon is a flavor, not a platform for abuse! And speaking of bacon abuse:

Bacon Cinnamon Roll

It’s time for us all to calm down….bacon isn’t necessary inside a Cinnamon Roll…this is just an attempt to use bacon to get attention, and it is wrong…and speaking of the ultimate bacon abuse:


That is a bacon abomination…it’s time to leave this post – just let me grab my coat:

Someone buy this for me now!

  1. Holy Lord, I want to marry this post. I have a recipe on my blog for Beer Bacon and Jalapeño Peanut Brittle. It is delish. BMEB. Bacon makes everything better. Except for cholesterol, it makes that worse. Cholesterol, schmolesterol.
