Even though it is made from the fatty part of a pig, it sure tastes good. I love waking up to the sizzling sound of bacon cooking in the morning and the aroma of it spreading its way through my home. One thing I've noticed about the smell of bacon, it takes hours for it to leave, good thing it smells wonderful. Bacon is best when it's cooked just enough so it's only slightly crispy. It can't be too crispy or else it loses most of its flavor and it can't be too uncooked or else it tastes too fatty. If cooked just right, bacon can taste wonderful and literally melt in your mouth.
