Bringin’ Home the Bacon

Bacon…it’s not just for breakfast anymore

Bacon is popping up on menus all over Atlanta, and if you so desire, you can have bacon in some form for each meal of the day…even in a cocktail. So why not join the trend, and put yourself in a state of perpetual pork pleasure? Check out our definitive guide to enjoying bacon in Atlanta.

The Iberian Pig

Leave it to a restaurant named after a pig to serve a bacon libation. The Iberian Old Fashioned consists of bacon-infused rye whiskey, brown sugar, molasses, and Angostura bitters. Add a side order of bacon-wrapped dates stuffed with Manchego cheese and walnuts, and you’re sure to be in bacon bliss.

The Porter

The Porter is known for their kick ass beer selection, but what goes best with beer? Why, bacon of course. For brunch try the bacon biscuit’wich, or indulge in the half pound bacon cheeseburger. And on the side? The Porter’s signature hushpuppies, studded with applewood smoked bacon.

Diesel Filling Station

We’ve all had bacon for breakfast, but only Diesel offers up this bacon bonanza. The “Death Muffin” is a cayenne pepper and maple syrup laced slab of bacon, sage sausage, and real bacon bits. The big, bacony log is baked and stuffed into an English muffin with melted cheddar and a poached egg. And to remind you of its evil, hedonistic deliciousness — a price tag of $6.66.

Whole Foods

What happens when you mix bacon and a candy bar? That’s right: portable bacon. Next time you’re in Whole Foods, stop by the display of Vosges’ delectable gourmet chocolates and pick up a “Mo’s Bacon Bar.” It’s a crazy good combo of applewood smoked bacon, alderwood smoked salt, and deep, creamy milk chocolate.

Leon’s Full Service

Perhaps the most straightforward of the bacon trends, Leon’s offers “Bacon in a Glass,” and it’s just that: 6 small strips of crispy, salty bacon served in a glass. On the side is a dipping sauce of peanut butter. (Yep, peanut butter). Only in the South.

    West Egg has some excellent bacon usage as well… I can’t find it on their web site’s menu but it was bacon wrapped around a stick and I think had honey baked on it.
