‘Happy National Bacon Day! My RDN friends are sharing their bacon tips and recipes with you to celebrate this fun day! Everything is better with bacon. In the United States and Canada, bacon is made from the pork belly. Elsewhere in the world, the side and back cuts of pork are used. The meat is cured in either a salt brine or in a salt pack. It is then either dried, boiled or smoked.
Kate is the RDN Digestive Health Expert and makes a BLT salad that is super yummy! She uses chicken bacon (She says don’t knock it until you try it!) She uses bacon in salads, on sandwiches, and in her morning eggs. She loves the savory flavor bacon adds to her recipes. @katescarlata_RD
Her BLT salad with avocado is easy to whip up and tastes fantastic!
Emma is the Director of Culinary Programs at the Wayne Art Center, Wayne, Pennsylvania. After years of splattering pants and scrubbing greasy oven tops, Emma found a mess free way to make bacon. Thanks Emma! Great idea!
- Pre-heat oven at 350F
- Line cookie trays with parchment paper.
- Line the bacon slices in single layers on the parchment paper.
- Bake bacon at 350F° for 15-20 minutes until crisp.
- Once cooked, place bacon on paper towel to absorb excess fat.
- Roll up used parchment paper and discard.
