Bacon continues to be all the rage, with new versions, variations and recipes being created every day! We personally love the trending food item and consider it a staple food, so when we saw that Applegate, the nation’s leading natural and organic meat brand, announced it’s Season’s Meatings campaign, we were fully on board.
Seasons Meatings will celebrate holiday traditions and clean, crave-able food with a pop-up food truck tour and a new partnership with The Radio City Rockettes. For its pop-up food truck, The Bacon Express, Applegate tapped Chef Ian Knauer, an accomplished TV Host, author, and journalist to create a mouthwatering menu of indulgent treats that elevate the nostalgic flavors of the season with Applegate Naturals® Sunday Bacon® – from candied bacon to bacon hot chocolate.
His creative recipes illustrate how bacon really does make everything better, and how you can incorporate it into your holiday repertoire to add some sizzle to your season. To indulge in your bacon cravings, try a few of these recipes below!
