GOOD!

Apparently everything is better with bacon! We just had some Cheese Garlic bread with Bacon added.

YES!!! My wife and I were just talking about this. We sprinkled some bacon bits over nachos and it's incredible! Also bacon & avocado sandwiches are great!

What's with all the bacon threads?

I don't see people starting threads like: Oxygen rocks my world! or Man I love toilet paper!

Duh, some things are just obvious. I think the "Bacon Council" is doing a viral marketing thing paying off people to shill for the bacon industry.

There's a bacon industry? Wonder if I can get a job in QC!

Sounds good. That's making me hungry. I had toasted rye bread with olive oil last night. It was good, but next time I might try adding garlic to as well.

I have tried it, and it's delish. Hard to get in Philly, for some reason, though- I usually hit Morningstar Farms strips when I need a facon fix.

Here too - we have better luck in little mom&pop health food stores; the big chains, even Trader Joes or Whole Foods don't always have the best stuff.

Cheese fries = good.

Cheese fries + bacon = stratospheric.

I was (and still am) the plain french fry eater, but ma petite amie took it to the next level.
