I use diced bacon to start potato soup, some chowders, greens, green beans sometimes, rotkohl, etc. It doesn't have to always be the "Star" of the dish, it can be a seasoning as well. Of course bacon grease, like schmaltz, really makes stuff fried in it taste great.

Brussels sprouts! Seriously, it's how I got my kids to enjoy them when they were little. Saute bacon, remove from fat and set aside to add back at the end. Either saute very lightly steamed sprouts, or shred them finely and saute the shreds until tender and bright green. Add back the bacon and enjoy.

At the holidays, or anytime I want a veggie dish to make a day ahead, I'll fist saute mushrooms in the bacon fat, then toss in the sprouts, add back the bacon, and season with garlic powder and tarragon. All those flavors play well together and it tastes even better the next day.

Here's an idea I just dreamed up... Okay, you like bacon, you'll agree bacon will go with anything... right?

Cook some bacon until crisp, then while still hot and drippy, dredge in sugar... After it has cooled off, crumble it and serve it over vanilla ice cream!

I double dog dare you! I bet that would be goood!!!!!!!!!!!!

I can see that this thread could possibly go virile! So many things to do with bacon...and so many DCers who do all kinds of things with bacon. I have a front-row seat.

LOL

The discussion motivated me to cook up some crispy bacon and mixed part in with my beans, sprinkled the rest over my dog's dinner. At 16 he is sometimes a bit picky about dinner but bacon always makes it more attractive to him.

How long would it keep in the refrigerator if I cooked several slices of bacon and then crumbled or chopped them up in little doggie tantalizing pieces?

I go three days in the refrigerator.

If you put it in the freezer it will thaw almost instantly. I use frozen cooked bacon on burgers and salads, I suppose you could use it on a dog!

Cook it, then freeze it, Greg. It will keep for a long time.
