Bacon has never really been the focus of many main courses at family dinner time. It always seems to be targeted at breakfast, sandwiches for lunch or toppings and accents for dinner. We went back to re-conceptualize bacon and searched the world for ideas and re-imagined bacon as a delicious protein component for a main meal. We are looking at everything from flavoured and marinated back bacon (perfect for slicing) to bacon burgers and finally, bacon steaks (perfect for grilling).
