 Nothing smells better that bacon frying in the morning. And most of us love to have it with eggs for breakfast, but it's used in lots of different recipes. What is your favorite way to use it? Fried crisp and crumbled on top of a baked potato? Mixed in with baked beans? Tell us how you use it.

My favorite way to use bacon is to wrap asparagus in bacon and roast it (broil for a minute at the end to crisp the bacon). Its how I got my DH to start eating asparagus.

My DHs family also chops it up and puts it in green beans.

 we use it quite a bit as a seasoning in our veggies/beans etc., Also on top of salads, sandwhichs etc.  I buy the bag of bacon bits and they go FAST lol.

I bake bacon or add water to the frying pan to reduce the odor. I really hate that smell.

I love it for lunch, actually, as opposed to breakfast. I usually pile a few strips on a bagel thin, add some sliced avocado and fat-free deli turkey meat, some fat-free mustard, and I have a less-than-300-calorie sandwich with the deliciousness of bacon. 

Mmmmmmmmm. Bacon.
