Just “add an egg” is a smart strategy to a better dinner, but “just add bacon” might be even smarter. Fortunately, our archive at Bon Appétit has no shortage of bacon recipes, from a bacon-wrapped meatloaf to brussels sprouts with crispy bacon and crispier breadcrumbs. (Serve those in the same meal and you might win an award.)
Whatever meal you are prepping, there are options. We’ve got appetizers aplenty, from loaded potato skins to bacony deviled eggs. If you’re planning a brunch, look no further than our ultimate quiche Lorraine. Need low-key dinner recipes? Try this almost-classic BLT or this foolproof carbonara. On the hunt for a veggies side dish? Put your Instant Pot to work with these pressure-cooked collard greens. We even have bacon in the form of dessert, courtesy of this salty-sweet spin on oatmeal cookies.
