    Bacon is bacon.  It's good on its own.  But is there a way to dress it up besides brown sugar?  I'm getting bored with plain old bacon for breakfast.

    Rough black pepper or peppercorns might put a zing back into your bacon. Have you tried that?

    • Maple syrup glaze
    • Thick sliced, breaded with cracker/panko, baked in the oven
    • Rumake, bacon wrapped around chicken liver and water chestnut, marinated in a soy/teriaki/asian sauce
    • Cuantro glaze
    • Chili-chocolate powder

    @ Pete McCracken:  I've got to try the panko crusted bacon with maple syrup glaze!  I'm a novice home cook but what's a Cuantro glaze?

    My bad, Cointreau (I really cannot spell /img/vbsmilies/smilies/crazy.gif, I should never try phonetic spelling) is an orange liqueur, others in the same vein are Triple Sec and Grand Marnier.

    try some different brands and cures as well. I have a soft spot for the boxes of trimmed bacon ends and scraps.
