    I’m not sure there’s a dish around that isn’t made better with a bit of bacon.  I’m even seeing bacon ice cream pop-up in restaurants every now and then.  And while I personally am not ready to throw a few slices of bacon on my breakfast cereal, I do find myself cooking with bacon a fair amount.  Bacon lardons, are essentially homemade bacon bits that taste a whole lot better than anything you
