Mathematical Proof That Bacon Makes Everything Better And How To Make It Easier
There's now MATHEMATICAL PROOF that bacon makes pretty much everything better. An analysis of the 50,000 recipes on the Food Network website found that when a recipe included bacon, they almost ALWAYS got higher ratings. The only exceptions were pasta and dessert.
This isn't going to come as a surprise to those of us who like bacon with everything . . . including our bacon . . . but there's now MATHEMATICAL PROOF that bacon makes pretty much everything better.
"Wired" magazine analyzed almost 50,000 recipes on the Food Network website, and found that when they compared recipes that did and didn't include bacon, the ones with bacon almost ALWAYS got higher ratings.
The only exceptions were pasta and dessert. Bacon makes those worse. It makes EVERYTHING else better. Let’s face it: bacon is arguably one of the greatest things on this planet. But making bacon is still a massive pain.
Between hot grease splattering you, and the fact that those little strips of heaven basically cook in their own fat, it's sometimes just not the effort.
However, Nostalgia Electrics, the makers of a new gadget called The Bacon Express, think they've got this licked. Their machine is basically a toaster for bacon: you open the sides, hang the raw slabs on, dial in your preferred level of crispiness, and wait.
The sleek-looking appliance cooks the bacon vertically, so the fat drips off to a separate tray, making the stuff healthier. Well, you know, it's still bacon, so, sort of. Not bad for $30.
