“We are throwing another bacon party. This year is the 3rd. About 20 people attend bringing any dish with bacon. Last year I made the chicken bacon wraps and chocolate dipped candy bacon strips. Mmmm Bacon!”

“By smoking some bacon in my smoker and adding it to almost everything I cook that day! Maybe even put some in ice cream!”

“We are having a cookout. I’m making bacon wrapped pork tenderloin and bacon wrapped scallops and jalapeños. We will have about 20-30 people and they are to bring a side that MUST HAVE BACON IN IT!”

“I work for a public radio station, so I’m celebrating Bacon Day with eight on-air announcements encouraging people to put a little more meat candy in their lives with a link to the Bacon Today blog!”

“Wake up to a bacon-featured breakfast, followed by Facebooking my latest bacon finds, followed by a BBBLT, because a single portion of bacon is ludicrous. Then maybe a nap so I can dream of bacon, followed by a bacon-wrapped something with a bacon-infused sauce. Dessert will have bacon mixed in and sprinkled on top. At that point, all I’ll be able to do is pass out due to my self-induced bacon-o-thon, but I’m not complaining. And since my doctor may read this, I will follow this day with a mega workout so I may eat more bacon at will.”

“I will be celebrating International Bacon Day by attending San Diego’s 2nd annual Bacon Fest. I will be introducing my boyfriend to this wonderful event as well. My plan so far is to wear my specially-selected apparel (a t-shirt that reads ‘this girl loves bacon’) and to eat and/or drink all the bacon delicacies that are available to me. I can honestly say that International Bacon Day is my favorite holiday!”

“I will recite all the lyrics to “Rappers Delight” by the Sugarhill Gang, but instead of the normal lyrics, “I don’t mean to brag, I don’t mean to boast, but we’re like hot butter on your breakfast toast…” I will substitute the lyrics, “I am sick with gout, my doctor’s not fakin’, my LDL’s so high because I’m crazy for bacon.”

This sweet and savory bread pudding recipe comes from Sessions Public in San Diego. It’s perfect for a Sunday breakfast or brunch! Sessions Public is a casual, charming neighborhood eatery with an ever-changing draft beer selection on the cusp of Ocean Beach and Point Loma in coastal San Diego. Opened in 2010 by San Diego native, Abel Kaase, the restaurant reflects the casual beach culture of its surroundings.

The restaurant’s eclectic selection of local and imported brews is paired with an approachable, yet creative menu with signature dishes such as Duck Fat Fries, Bacon Lollipops and Pork Belly Tacos. As a nod to the San Diego area code, happy hour is offered until 6:19 p.m. daily. Lunch and dinner are also available, as well as weekend brunch.
