I throw a little extra bacon in my fettuccine alla carbonara.....along w/ extra mushrooms, too--
So good
It's easily one of my all time favorite uses for bacon.
I also must have bacon in my homemade Spanish rice.
I can't believe people make it wthout bacon, lol

I like applewood smoked bacon. Oh man, bacon gives so many foods a good flavor. Bacon lettuce and tomatoe sandwich is about as American as you can get. Beans, green beans, fried potatoes, cornbread, place 5 or 6 strips of bacon over liver and onions in a frying pan makes the liver taste absolutely delicious. Peanut butter is another food that gives so many other foods a good flavor. I havent tried it yet, but ons day soon im going to try a peanut butter and applewood smoked bacon sandwich. 2 outstanding flavor enhancers my make a good combination theirselves.

Best use for American type bacon--a BLT made with a just picked tomato.

I love pancetta. I make a pasta dish with a bit of pancetta, a creamy sauce and fresh zucchini. Also love to throw a little pancetta into meatballs. It gives it a different, very rich taste.

Not a huge fan of Canadian bacon.

It really depends.
Cheap (LOL!) US bacon stretched with knife back for jalapeno poppers and BLTs; thick cut country bacon for breakfast waffles and chicken sandwiches; Canadian bacon is too sweet for my taste.

you really really must have some - one of the main things I miss since moving to the US

Best in a sandwich - either as a BLT or with a good bread and ketchup.
Also great in a Full English breakfast with proper English sausages, beans, mushrooms and fried eggs
