What are some recipes that you have used bacon in that you wouldn't normally use bacon in.

One of my favorites is chocolate chip cookies with bacon (or blonde brownies with bacon).  Freak'n delicious!

I seem to find all sorts of uses for it, except I rarely use it as a breakfast side, like it's supposed to be.

I usually just cook it for breakfast. I've heard of wrapping bacon around pork or chicken. Yum!

I once made bacon brownies for my dad. I didn't eat them but I heard they were good. I've also seen bacon wrapped corn that's deep fried and bacon wrapped turkey.

Can anyone tell me how to properly cook bacon?

So I can put it in things??

I've only tried doing it once, and it was a disaster. It was undercooked and overcooked at the same time. How is that possible. Was very disappointing. I had to go out and buy crumbled bacon for my bean dish instead of making my own.

BLT mac 'n cheese, with bacon, chopped cherry tomatoes, and spinach. Spaghetti carbonara. We often crumble it and mix it into burgers for the grill.

YUM. I love bacon. I should try baking with it, like your cookie idea...
