If you really love bacon, pretty much every day could be bacon day. But today is the official bacon day.

According to the National Day Calendar, today is National Bacon Day. You can celebrate by having bacon and eggs, a BLT, a salad with bacon bits, or just fry up a whole pound of bacon and eat it. Of course your doctor may frown upon that.

Bacon really does make just about everything better. Think about it. Bacon in potato soup, bacon in any kind of dip, even bacon on chicken sandwiches make the chicken sandwich better. Have you ever tried a white pizza with bacon and tomato? Yumbo. How about a breakfast pizza with bacon? Yep, bacon makes it better.

Scallops and Shrimp are awesome  on their own,  but they are even better when wrapped in bacon. I really love cheeseburgers, but I especially love bacon cheeseburgers with crumbly blue cheese on top.

I'm not a big fan of Brussel sprouts. Actually, I would say they're my least favorite vegetable, but fry them with bacon and put a ton of cheese on top, and I would even eat those.

I found 50 things to make with bacon on the Food Network website. So if you want to celebrate National Bacon Day with something different, click here to get that full list.

Happy National Bacon Day!
