Campanelle Carbonara from Brio Tuscan Grille

How do you make chicken alfredo even more delicious? Add bacon! This pasta from Brio Tuscan Grille includes grilled chicken, campanelle pasta, bacon, tender spinach, parmesan cheese and creamy alfredo. Twirl with a fork and enjoy!

Pork Belly Sliders from the Cheesecake Factory

Why do we love pork belly so much? Because it’s essentially thick cut BACON. These sliders at the Cheesecake Factory have thick slices of slow roasted smoked pork belly along with barbecue sauce, coleslaw and fried pickles. You get the crunch, the sweet and the heat all in one bite!

Chicken Bacon Ranch Wrap or Sandwich from Crabtree Ale House

Everyone’s favorite trio has arrived in sandwich or wrap form! Chicken, bacon, sauteed mushrooms, onions and green peppers are topped with cheddar cheese, lettuce, tomato and ranch dressing. You’ll be in a chicken BACON ranch dream after dining! Pro tip: Wash your sandwich down with one of the many local North Carolina beers available at the Crabtree Ale House.

John Boy and Billy BBQ Bacon Cheeseburger from HWY 55

More like a bacon kiss! These delicious shrimp are wrapped in bacon with pepper-jack cheese, then topped with crispy onion strings and roasted corn salsa. The perfect bite-sized bacon indulgence!

Maple-Glazed Slab-Cut Bacon Appetizer from Fleming’s Steakhouse

Made for the real bacon lovers, this hearty piece of bacon has been slow roasted with a sweet maple-glaze making it the ultimate sweet/salty bite. It’s the perfect appetizer before diving into a delicious filet mignon or ribeye steak!

Fig & Bacon Flatbread from Season’s 52

What makes a crunchy and cheesy flatbread even better? Bacon, of course! Season’s 52’s fig and bacon flatbread is savory with a little sweetness from the fig. Topped with arugula for some extra crunch and freshness, you’ll definitely be saying “Yum!” after one bite.
