10 Mouth-Watering Bacon Recipes

I am obsessed with bacon. Some would call it a problem but I call it enjoyment. Below are 10 mouth-watering bacon recipes that we’ve featured on our site before, all rolled into one blog post. We hope you enjoy!

1. Creamy Peas with Crisp Smithfield Bacon

It’s hard enough getting your children to eat vegetables, let alone by the spoonful. This recipe combines peas with bacon and Alfredo sauce for a savory and delicious addition to your regular can of peas.

It’s a unique take on one of my favorite delights, creamed peas, and combine some simple additions that ensure your child will scoop them up by the spoonful. Sometimes you have to get creative when it comes to getting those veggies and and this recipe is sure to change that “how many more peas do I have to eat “to “do we have any more of those delicious peas?!”

For this recipe, we used Smithfield Bacon. Smithfield bacon is famous for smoking and curing fine meets to perfection, giving the bacon rich flavor that can only be attained through the natural smoking process. Available in ten varieties, Cherrywood, Applewood and Thick Cut are our favorites.
