Bacon. You’re smiling now, aren’t you? Just thinking about a nice salty, fatty, crispy strip of bacon. Oh, but there’s so much more to the prince of pig parts than slapping it in a frying pan, although that’s always a good choice. Here are five fun things to do with bacon:

These are so very wrong you’ll want to make them right away! Cut strips of bacon into thirds and wrap around each cocktail weenie.

Bake at 350 degrees for 30-40 minutes until the bacon is crisp.

Perfect one-bite appetizers. Use tea biscuits cut in half (if you live in the South I don’t need to explain this to you – if you live outside the South use a sturdy white bread cut in circles).

Coat bacon with dark brown sugar. Put it on a rack on top of a foil-lined baking sheet. Bake for about 20 minutes or until the bacon is crisp.
