Bacon has it’s own cult following and my family has some of the members! While we all enjoy bacon, my oldest son and my daughter are absolutely crazy about it. If I ever want them to eat something, I just need to add bacon! In a family of six, we can finish off an entire package of bacon in just one meal, but I remember the days when there were just two of us, and it was more difficult to use it all before it went bad.

Maple Leaf has a new product called Bacon Portions that solves the problem of bacon going bad! Each package has two separate pouches so that you can open just one half at a time. It’s brilliant! I made a recipe below with a full package of Maple Leaf bacon, but you can reduce the ingredients to make a smaller salad too.
