Why Winning 100K Slices Of Smithfield Bacon Would Absolutely Rule

Presented in partnership with Smithfield

Go ahead and stand up if you like bacon. OK, so now that (presumably) everyone reading this is out of their seat, let’s go over the simple reasons why you’re no longer sitting down.

First, because bacon is badass. It tastes great alone. It tastes great on other meat like burgers. It tastes great in a salad (if you’re into that sort of thing). Second, it’s a man’s snack. With all due respect to those who love avocado toast, bacon brings more of an edge to it. It’s the snack that says you don’t really give a damn about a thing — well, other than good tasting meat. Third, it’s easy as hell to cook, meaning you can toss it on a frying pan and cook it within 5-10 minutes, or you can throw it into the microwave and make it crispy in no time.

For all those reasons above, among others, bacon is the absolute best. And because it’s so damn good, Smithfield wants to hook you up with a ton of it, giving you the chance to win in its Racin’ for Bacon Giveaway, which is a sweepstakes offering one million slices of the tasty bacon.

2. Make Bacon Salt

Sprinkling a little salt on food is good to add some flavor, but imagine doing that with salt that has a hint of bacon to it? Nope, it’s not too good to be true, because, with so much bacon from Smithfield, you can crush cooked strips together with salt and pepper to make this spice. Sounds tasty AF.
