10 Best Breakfast Ideas for Bacon Lovers!

The best thing about waking up is bacon.  A few strips alongside eggs and toast is about as classic of a morning feast as you can get.  There are plenty of other breakfast ideas that include bacon. Here are a few of our favorite recipes. 

Overnight Bacon Casserole

From Eat Pork Org.

This recipe has the advantage of two opportunities to smell cooking bacon - once the night before and again the next morning.

Bacon-Cheddar Breakfast Burritos

from Chowhound

These burritos take the best of breakfast foods (eggs, bacon, and cheese) and wrap them up in a tortilla.

Maple Bacon Corn Muffins

From Delish

Muffins are really just another term for cupcakes, minus the frosting. These muffins mix sweet and salty to start your day the best way possible.

Maple Bacon and Cheddar Buttermilk Biscuits

From the Chunky Chef

Another amazing pastry recipe, this one more savory than sweet. Added bacon grease gives these a richer flavor.

Bacon and Egg Breakfast Pizza

from Pumpkin N Spice

This pizza trumps the leftover sausage and pepperoni slice in the fridge. Even better, you can prep and bake this in less than half-hour.

Bacon Fried Rice

From Buns In My Oven

Forget the yellow stuff with the paltry number of green peas and little else in it.  This fried rice recipe incorporates bacon (of course) and sweet onion into the usual rice, peas, and carrots mix.

Shrimp and Gruyere Cheese Grits with Bacon and Mushrooms

from Serious Eats

Breakfast side dishes are the perfect pairings for omelets and other egg dishes. These grits would feel right at home in New Orleans or at your next BBQ.

Dutch Bacon and Apple Pancakes

from The Spruce

These pancakes aren't just for breakfast they're served at dinnertime in their native Netherlands. 

Bacon Peanut Butter Banana Bread

from How Sweet It Is

This is as close to Elvis Presley's fried peanut butter, banana, and bacon sandwich as you may wish to get. And like classic banana bread, a loaf of this is highly portable for potluck breakfasts and brunches.

Bourbon Bacon Jam

from Cravings of a Lunatic

Nothing can beat bourbon for authentic country breakfast recipes. This variation on a Martha Stewart bacon jam recipe is spreadable heaven.
