Here’s a shocking fact: Everybody loves bacon. Before writing this, I polled 100 vegans and every single one of them said they loved bacon too!** What’s better than a regular appetizer? A bacon-wrapped appetizer!
You’ll never hear someone complain about bacon at dinner or a party, I promise. Have you ever been upset that bacon was involved in a dish? I didn’t think so. If you’ve got bacon, then it needs to be cooked pronto and I’ve got you covered. I found some pretty creative things to do with that delicious, greasy pig fat!
** Possibly a lie.
