Everything's better with bacon, isn't it? Well, for many years now, that's been the thought by a lot of people (including me). There are bacon cupcakes and bacon donuts, bacon with fish and veggies and, well, pretty much anything else you can think of.
But according to an article in the Wall Street Journal, some folks may think that bacon has run it's course these days. They say that bacon can cover up the real flavors of foods and that it's just being overused.
OK, I admit, bacon does show up all over the place (bacon lip balm?!?) and sometimes is a crutch to add flavor to some tired dish. But for me, bacon will never go out of style. Smoky, salty, great texture, great mouth-feel. Who would get tired of some crumbled bacon on a salad or soup? Or a great BLT when tomatoes are at their peak? Or a little bacon in some fresh waffles with real maple syrup? Oh yeah.
No, I don't agree with them. Bacon is here to stay. What do you think?
