Is bacon.... Overrated?

Postby Kanadorika » Wed Oct 28, 2015 8:34 pm

(Not Kevin Bacon of course)

After being frustrated by far too many great foods being ruined by adding bacon into them (I'm sorry, but I like my mac n cheese bacon free), I am now willing to commit the ultimate internet crime; denouncing bacon as being overrated.

Now bacon by itself is alright. It's not awful, but it certainly can't hold its own against a well spiced sausage immersed in maple syrup. To me, bacon is far too salty. Cooking it is a pain in the ass (actually, a pain in the arms because hot oil splashes everywhere). Oven baked bacon is slightly better, but I still don't see why the strip of salted pork has such an intense cult following. I suppose I've always been more of a sausage man (get your filthy mind out of the gutter). Sausages offers so much more in varieties and textures.

So, what say you NSG? Anybody else believe that bacon is a bit overrated? Or have I apparently lost my mind?

It's 99% fat. Eating it is the same as drinking bacon grease. That is why I don't eat it at all.

No. Bacon is proof that if there is a God, he exists. Bacon is the supreme food.

Mixing bacon with things like macaroni or ketchup is fucking repulsive.

Bacon on it's own however is excellent.

I used to think bacon was overrated when I was a young kid, after having already eaten bacon for years. Then I once had what I consider 'good' bacon, and holy shit it was good. Basically if you cook it just right, or using the right kind of fat, it can taste absolutely amazing, but a lot of the time it isn't cooked that well at all, sadly I was never able to cook bacon that well myself.

Eh, when it comes to bacon, it's a matter of taste and correct pairing. At least, in my experience.

I didn't like those myself. But making the pancakes in some of the bacon grease is actually not too shabby.

I do not tend to pair things like bacon with sweet stuff, however. But that's just me.
