International Bacon Day

I guess I truly do not care how many days of the year get dedicated to the love of bacon. I am there! In celebration of several food favorites, I offer you:

Bacon Cheddar Popcorn.
4-6 slices bacon, regular or maple, fried & crumbled; 3-4 T drippings reserved
½ c popcorn kernels
¼ lb finely shredded or grated white or yellow cheddar cheese
Salt & pepper
Pop the corn in the reserved bacon drippings. While hot, toss quickly with cheese. Season with salt & pepper to suit your taste & sprinkle bacon over it. Munch madness is yours!

KISS Tips:
You can spread already popped corn (or even white cheddar popcorn) in a single layer on a parchment-lined, sided baking sheet. Sprinkle with cheese, seasonings, and bacon; bake 5-6 min at 300°F. For variety, try different seasonings, such as mixed Italian or a favorite BBQ rub. Garnish with thinly sliced green onions or chives, if desired.
