I may be one of the few that don't like my bacon crisp. I like a little snap. But I want three textures of the bacon. The fat should be a little chewy and the meat soft.

Bacon, straight, it's my choice.

I know it sounds weird but I love chocolate covered bacon. It's sweet. salty, and always guarantees a crispy, aka the best kind, of bacon.

I love my bacon in my spicy bloody Mary's. Also on a burger, salad, pasta or just by itself. Mmmmm bacon

My preferred way to enjoy bacon is on its own and not too crisp although I do love it on the mushroom risotto my husband makes!

I love my bacon in a BLT with delicious fresh bread and spicy mustard. No mayo. It is also great in a cheese omelet.
