What Says Independence Better Than Bacon?

It is the Fourth of July. I woke up bright-eyed and ready for breakfast at 7:30AM. There is nothing I love more than a leisurely Sunday morning with a big, lovingly made breakfast, a steaming hot cup of coffee and an episode of CBS Sunday Morning on the tube.

And what says "Independence Day" better than fluffy pancakes with fresh fruit, real maple syrup and confectioners sugar? Well, bacon does.

This is Boar's Head bacon, baked at 350 degrees for 30 minutes with a sprinkling of brown sugar and cracked black pepper. It forms a crispy crust and makes the bacon taste like... meat candy.

Good morning, indeed!

PS... To everyone who said to me, "Where the hell is your next blog post?" I thank you. It's so nice to know that there are actually people out there - if only one or two, who enjoy what I'm doing here. I'll be a better blogger, I swear!
