Bacon Bacon please bring home the Bacon. If you live in Salt Lake where I live you have most likely smelled the bacon as you dive on the freeway. Early in the morning at 3300 South they process and make bacon. Seaboard Foods in a wholesaler here in Utah they supply most of the Mc Donald's and other chain restaurants with bacon. Wow driving along on the freeway and smell that smoky flavor, the salty richness, the crispy crunch who can resist? The funny thing about this is 100 yards later you smell the Sara Lee factory making bread. A BLT would be perfect about now. Let me know what kind of smells you smell as you dive on the highway?
I made this fun little salad with Bacon from Seaboard foods I have a friend who works for the company and often times she will give us bacon. I changed one item in the salad hubby is not fond of blue cheese and it is my favorite. So we made a swap and used feta it was perfect. If you are ever in Salt Lake don't forget to smell the bacon or bring home the bacon.
