We love bacon! We are especially partial to our bacon at Burgers' Smokehouse. All of our bacon is dry cured, no water added and slow smoked for a flavor and bite that is unique to our bacon and sets bacon recipes apart from other "recipes with bacon."
Today we are sharing a couple of our favorite bacon recipes that have been favorites of our team, including one pioneered by our own Mary (Burger) Keil, E.M. Burger's daughter.
Of all the bacon recipes, one of our favorites for a quick & delicious appetizer!
1/2 lb. Burgers' Smokehouse Bacon - any flavor (cooked & chopped)
1/2 c. Onion Chopped, finely
6 oz. cream cheese, softened
3-4 T. Garlic Powder
2 cans - crescent refrigerator rolls
Step 1: Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
Step 2: Unroll crescent rolls into eight rectangles (2 triangles per rectangle) and pinch together the seams.
Step 3: Spread each rectangle with cream cheese and then sprinkle with garlic powder, chopped bacon and finely chopped onion.
Step 4: Roll up each rectangle from the short side to create lots of layers!
Step 5: Cut each roll into 4 slices and place on an ungreased baking sheet.
Step 6: Bake at 375 degrees F for 12-15 minutes until golden brown.

In our opinion, bacon recipes are a staple for any meal of the day and you can't get more of a staple than a classic BLT sandwich. However, we like to make ours many ways, including using your favorite type of Burgers' Smokehouse bacon, whether it's our Original Hickory Smoked Dry Cured Bacon or one of our bacon steak cuts variety and with lots of add on variations!
Class Bacon, Lettuce and Tomato (BLT) Sandwich
8 Slices - your favorite bread
1 lb. Sliced - Burgers' Smokehouse Bacon
4-6 Slices - Iceberg Lettuce, washed
8 Slices - fresh tomatoes
Optional: Mayo, BBQ Sauce, Cheese Slices, Pesto Sauce, Caramelized Onions, Balsamic Vinegar
Step 1: Bake or Fry all of your bacon slices. Depending on which type you chose - should be 8-14 slices of bacon, cooked & ready to serve!
Step 2: Toast your bread - to a light brown in the toaster or in the oven (5 min @ 300 degree F.)
Step 3: Sandwich Assembly - on one slice of bread - layer your lettuce leaves - 1 - 1 1/2 per sandwich and on the other slice of bread layer 2 tomato slices.
Step 4: Place 2-4 slices of bacon (break in half if needed) between the two slices of bread before putting both sides together, to make a complete sandwich. Repeat three more times!
Step 5: Pick an optional variation!
* Complete the above process, but add Mayo to one slice of bread and a slice of your favorite cheese.
