Where do I start with bacon… waking up to that wonderful smell working its way through the cottage on a lazy weekend morning makes you want to jump out of bed.

Obviously bacon is great for breakfast, served alongside freshly cooked eggs, buttery toast, home fries… maybe a little French toast and syrup. But in my opinion, bacon is the universal meal-maker – you can add it to anything and make it instantly more amazing.

Here are some of my favourite bacon add-on ideas:

  • Add chopped bacon to veggies like green beans, salads and more
  • Use bacon to top burgers and hotdogs
  • Crumbled it into pasta salad, perogies, quiche and soups. Try it in chili.
  • Sneak a couple of slices into a grilled cheese for an out-of-this-world sandwich
  • Wrap bacon around just about anything before cooking and have that great smell and flavour infuse your food
  • Bacon for dessert? Why not? There’s a reason bakers are putting bacon on everything from donuts to chocolate dipped

So next time you bring out the bacon, make sure you cook extra – then put it to good use.

Each weekend my wife, baby and I climb into my Chevy Colorado... aka the white sheep… aka the cottage vehicle and drive up to the cottage in hopes to make it up before the sunset or in time for a quick ski or for dinner. We are really hoping to fit in all three! But, if we don't get it all in Friday night, we still have the rest of the weekend to do that plus… play games, BBQ's, see friends and family, campfires, swimming, skating, tobogganing, beers, pranks, boating, cliff jumping, rope swings, water falls, river rides, fire works, relax and so much more! I love the cottage and everything that goes with it.
