It's an uncontested fact: Bacon makes everything better. Crumbled onto cupcakes, next to a hearty plate of eggs and pancakes, hot and crispy from the fryer all on its own. We might make the potentially sacrilegious assertion that man and woman can live on bacon alone…but with these delectable bacon-wrapped recipes, why would we want to? Bacon dresses up the humble chicken breast. It makes eating greens the most anticipated event of the evening. Last-minute (unwelcome) dinner guest? Throw bacon around those pork chops and voilà! An easy, low-stress supper that delights. For your weeknight dinner pleasure, we've got a mean bacon-wrapped asparagus recipe, a bacon-wrapped shrimp recipe, and yes, a bacon-wrapped chicken breast recipe. Not enough bacon for you? How about Bacon Wrapped Jalapeño Poppers or Maple-Bacon Wrapped Smokies? By the time you've finished perusing this gallery of bacon-wrapped recipes, you may feel inspired to break out into song: Oh, bacon, how I love thee. Let me count the ways.
