Tag Archives: side bacon


I’ve been blogging for more than three years now and I’ve somehow neglected to write about bacon. I’ve written about Canadian bacon. I’ve written about bacon jerky. But this is the first post about real bacon. Real bacon is officially known as side bacon or streaky bacon, and it comes from pig belly meat. The USDA defines bacon as the cured belly of a swine carcass. Don’t let that definition dissuade you from trying bacon. It’s delicious. It’s a wonder food. It’s amazing by itself and it makes everything else better. Try it with eggs. Try it with lettuce and tomato. Try it wrapped around fried chicken. Turn a cheeseburger into a bacon cheeseburger. Take that Bloody Mary to another level. Bacon is a four billion dollar industry in the United States alone. Jews and vegetarians have no idea what they are missing out on. I don’t care what they say, eating bacon is totally kosher.
