How do you like Bacon, Thick or Thin Sliced?

For me Thick Cut and real crisp, please!

I've been to many places where the bacon is so thin you can see right through it.

How about bacon cooked with spices like, pepper, chili powder or dipped in chocolate?

What's your favorite way to have bacon?

  1. I like my fatback stir fried w/leeks and hot peppers, a la Grace Garden in Gambrills, MD

    1. I agree, thick sliced is the only way to go...... We also like it sprinkled with brown sugar and cayenne :)

      1. as if there was a bad way to have bacon . . .

        most of the time i also like it thick, except on a bacon sandwich. thin sliced but more layers works best for that, but I'm not gonna turn it down if it is thick sliced.

        and no i don't mean a blt, or a clubhouse, or whatever. Just two slices of buttered toast with a whole lotta bacon between.

        and no, i haven't shared this information with my PCP.

          How about mayo instead of butter? Yum.
          As to original question:thick & rubbery

            im thinking mayo on top, butter on the bottom . . . maybe.

              Have you tried it with peanut butter? FAN-tastic

              1. re: mucho gordo

                Peanut butter, bacon and tomato on rye toast.

                  Try adding cream cheese to the mixture for another level of flavor.

                    geeze youse guys, i can feel my arteries hardening already. good thing we got tomato in there, that's healthy right? LOL

                    Love the sound of this, but nothing replaces just plain bacon butter and white bread . . . well there's 7 more years in chowhound purgatory for me.

                    1. re: KaimukiMan

                      How about we coat the tomato in tempura and deep fry it!

                That shit almost made me jump off the school roof in an afterschool special.

                  When I refer to PCP, it's Primary Care Physician!

            3. I like it thick sliced, cooked so there is still a little give to it (not super crispy). This works especially well as tempura.

              1. Thick sliced, center cut and completely unadorned. Thin bacon is too easily burned.

                And I love a bacon, cheddar and mustard sandwich with toasted white bread.
