Welcome to Like or Dislike, where you get to share how you really feel about ingredients from the pantry, ingredients I'm thinking about adding to my pantry, other seasonal foods, even favorite cooking gear. Do you like, dislike, love, crave, despise, wish for, use in your own kitchen? The things you like are sure to find their way to the recipes here on The Perfect Pantry, so do tell!
Bacon. In my non-pork-eating world, it's the one salty, fatty, forbidden exception. I can't imagine a bacon, lettuce and tomato sandwich without it. Or bacon guacamole. Or bacon jam. My husband Ted goes for pancakes and bacon, and an amazing creation called The Obama from the market across the street from our Boston apartment: turkey, provolone cheese, bacon, lettuce and tomato and mayo, piled on grilled bread. (Is this the president's favorite sandwich? I don't know.) I'm not really a bacon and eggs person, but I tuck a crispy slice of bacon into a breakfast burrito every now and then.
