I eat turkey bacon, and I've tried some soy varieties before.

I won't eat the real stuff though. It's mostly fat, and I'm not that into it.

I couldn't agree more! Even as a young kid with no sense of proper nutrition, I hated the real stuff and would opt for a turkey alternative. I'm really not a picky eater but I have a hard time stomaching stuff with an over-abundance of fat and grease

bacon is amazing.

last year, we bought a cheap charcoal grill and grilled out on the stoop of our dorm, and i would make bacon cheese burgers by cooking the bacon on a piece of tin foil...they were soooooo good.

Bacon probably isn't going to show up in the food pyramid anytime soon, and it's not part of my (fairly heathy) diet, but I sure do love to smell it. If somebody else orders bacon in a restaurant and I pass it to them, I move the plate verrrrrry slowly past my nose!

And it's not the worst thing you could eat. A single Entenmann’s chocolate donut has the same saturated and trans fat as nine strips of bacon! So skip the donut, have eight strips of bacon, and boast how diet conscious you are!

Bacon is nasty. Nothing but strips of fat being fried up in its own fatty grease. Why not just have a granola bar for breakfast instead?

Seriously, salty, fatty pork is the bee's knees.

I just love this thread. Makes me think of... mmmmmmm, Bacon. But not to sure if I'd try Bacon: The Ice Cream. I guess I just prefer cow's on the ice cream container, though I feel like a pig after eating it! So how about you guys? One Scoop or two?

The wife has been making these little bacon egg cups, so simple, easy to make a large batch (if you’re serving a big group), deliciously simple. You can also dress them up with your choice of seasonings, spice, cheese

How long do you bake them at what temp?

Saw this last but had to check with the wife this morning.

She microwaves the bacon for 2 minutes to get a little initial cook. The original recipe indicated 1 minute but that left the bacon a little undercooked. She mentioned about going even a little longer but you want to remain soft enough to be able to shape the cups (and it's going to cook again).

Then make the cups in a muffin tin, break an egg into each and cook for about 15 minutes on 350. Of course you'll want to experiment a touch with the cook time, our oven is pretty efficient (convection) so it's probably more like 15-18.

She's also done them with a little cheese sprinkled on top.

What temperature/how long do you bake this for? It's just a strip of bacon you curl around the edge of each opening, and then crack an egg in right?

A 5 or 6 years ago 2 friends and I went camping for a week in Brown County State Park (southern Indiana). Long story short in 5 days we ate, among other things, 3 or 4 pounds of bacon. I think it was a few years before I even thought about eating bacon again.
