I think most people will agree with me when I say that bacon makes everything better. Let me clarify – bacon makes most dishes better by adding richness and a smoky, salty goodness. There has however been an abundance of bacon flavored products that have surfaced over the last few years and some are a little questionable.
Bacon toothpaste? I’ll stick with mint. Bacon vodka? No, thanks. But bacon in German potato salad? Oh ja!
As you can tell I’ve still been riding the German food wave that I caught about a month ago. When I came across this recipe for potato salad, I knew I had to try it because one, it’s German and two, bacon.
Would you agree with me when I say that bacon makes everything better? If you answered yes, then stay with me.
There was, and still is, a ton of bacon flavored products out there from toothpaste to vodka. As much as I am a lover of bacon, I’m not satisfied with imitation flavorings or faux offerings. I want the whole hog and I want recipes that really showcase it!
