International Bacon Day

Today is International Bacon Day! Today's tasty holiday is the perfect reason to enjoy this classic breakfast food. A BLT, bacon-wrapped meatloaf, or a simple side of bacon – it’s all delicious.  

Bacon is a cured, smoked pork and has been around for centuries. The method of preserving pork began in China around 1500 B.C, with the Greeks and Romans continuing the tradition. Modern-day bacon was first packaged and patented by Oscar Mayer in 1924.
