Bacon breakfast recipes?

I have a good deal of bacon and am trying to come up with some creative breakfast recipes to use it up. I do not care for eggs, and I am afraid that really narrows my options.

Bacon, it's not just for breakfast anymore.

BLT and soup for lunch or dinner.

Bacon and cheddar soup.

Toppings for salads and baked potatoes.

Make any sandwich a club sandwich with the addition of bacon

Bacon Cheeseburgers.

Smokey Cauliflower, Gouda and Bacon squares

Bake it on a cookie sheet (stays flatter that way) and you can use it on sandwiches and burgers. Make it really crisp and you can crumble it on salads etc. Put it in pasta, make a carbonara...mmmmmmmmmmm!

If you are REALLY wanting it for breakfast, try dicing potatoes, adding the bacon and frying it til potatoes are tender. Grate some cheese over it, add some veggies and you have a nice skillet dish. Good luck.

These should keep you busy for a while

Bacon Recipes - Home Cooking

I would go for the Penne Alla Vodka with B A C O N.

Edit: Okay noticed you said breakfast. Over pancakes or French Toast.

There's always a good ol' BLT sammich.

If you don't want to be eating bacon for the next few weeks, try freezing it. I put individual rashers in those tiny ziplock bags and stick the lot in a freezer bag. I take out the uncooked rashers as I need them. I'm not huge on bacon - too salty for me as a regular item - and usually am only cooking for one, so you may prefer to package in larger quantities. This means that a quick carbonara of blt is not a problem.

How about bacon gravy over biscuits or toast - fried taters too.

How about I just take it off your hands? :)
Make a breakfast strata.
Grease a dish, 1/2 filll with cut up bread
top with cheese, the bacon, some veggies maybe? I like broccoli and red pepper
Mix eggs, milk or cream, a little mustard and salt
let sit a few hours or overnight.
Poof breakfast in the morning without cooking.
Great for Cristmas morning.

I do this, too.
I wrap up the portions in plastic wrap and freeze in a ziploc bag. It's very handy doing this and I can buy larger quantities on sale.

BTW, I never heard of baking it before. I saw on a show to lay the strips in a cold pan and bring up to temp to keep them flatter. Seems to work over laying them in a preheated pan.

Probably all food service establishments, (restaurants, hospitals, school cafeterias etc) where large quanities of bacon or cooked on a daily basis use the oven method. It's fast and efficient. They do not have the time (man hours) to pay someone to stand in front of a stove and fry bacon the we do in our homes.

For breakfast ideas. I like bacon with pancakes/syrup....biscuits/syrup.....toast, bacon, and oatmeal. or just toast, bacon and hot coffee!

Enjoy!

Duh I just noticed you said you don't care for eggs.
Actually I don't either.... alone.
But if you cover 'em up with enough stuff, like in an omlette I will eat them.
Thats why I like the stratas so much.
I DO LIKE THEM SAM I AM!!!!!!
