Well, I’m not sure there’s a bacon debate going on, but this seems like as good a time as any to start one.
Question: Is bacon a meat, or a condiment?
I don’t think of bacon as a meat. I’ll put bacon on stuff that already has meat in it, but I can’t think of anything I eat where bacon is the primary meat.
Think of a bacon cheeseburger. It’s a cheeseburger with bacon. It’s not a bacon burger with beef.
Even a bacon omelette is simply a cheese omelette with bacon.
Bacon is like icing. I like cake. Cake is good. But cake with icing is better. Bacon is like icing for meat.
Oh, don’t get me wrong. I do like bacon. But bacon’s primary purpose in life (death?) is to make other stuff better.
What about you? Where do you stand?
