Is bacon over or nah?
Bacon cupcakes. Bacon soap. Bacon air freshener. The bacon-in-everything craze has a lot of people saying that the savory breakfast staple has jumped the shark. To those people we say, “I can’t hear you! I’m too busy eating bacon!” That’s because we like to skip the trends and stick to the classics. But don’t confuse “classic” with “boring.” The bacon-centric recipes below run the gamut from “tried-and-true” to “I would never have thought of that – but it’s delicious!”
Bacon Mushroom Swiss Burger
We’ll start with our own burger recipe, featuring a combination of ingredients that elevates it above your typical burger-joint grub.
Bacon-Wrapped Hot Dogs
Here’s how your hot dog gets its bacon on – literally.
Sweet & Savory Bacon Jam
If you look at bacon and say, “that’s my jam” then this recipe is for you – and it’s a great alternative to the more traditional bacon-strip burger toppings. You’ll want to toast your Ball Park Hamburger Buns so that the jam doesn’t make them soggy.
In some regions, barbecue sandwiches are served with cole slaw on top of the meat. This slaw would work equally well with pork, poultry or beef ‘cue. Just be sure to use a hearty bun like Ball Park’s Tailgaters to hold up to the hefty fillings.
Here’s another great way to use extra hot dog buns. The touch of honey in our Golden Hot Dog buns is a perfect complement to the salty toppings.
The Southern Bird Dog
Another great non-hot-dog use for hot dog buns, this chicken/bacon/cheese concoction gets extra points for the pun.
