I am looking for some bacon Ideas.

I have used bacon in baked beans, meat loaf, choclate brownies, with steak, cresent roll hot dogs, and just fried bacon. I have a grandson that just loves the stuff, and am trying to figure out some unique way to use bacon and surprise him...

I would go with bacon wrapped pretzel rods or bread sticks.

If you give it a google you will find many variations sweet/hot, with grated parm cheese, with cayenne pepper etc. The main idea is to wrap the raw bacon around the "stick", season it and bake it until the bacon is crispy.

Sort of a manly man's Super Bowl food.

Oh, I had to come back and edit my post!

How about a bacon, maple walnut sundae.

Again several variations exist, how bad could it be!

Well, there's the delicious BLT sandwich, or spaghetti carbonara can be made with bacon instead of pancetta.

And there are some interesting recipes here: http://www.lifehack.org/articles/lif...-ever-try.html

As a stir stick in tomato juice? How about in potato salad, on a hamburger, stirred into waffles, crumbled over a hot fudge sundae(yum, yum, yum)? Or ask the kid to come up with ideas. He's probably full of them.
