Freebase

  1. Bacon

    Bacon is a cured meat prepared from a pig. It is first cured using large quantities of salt, either in a brine or in a dry packing; the result is fresh bacon. Fresh bacon may then be further dried for weeks or months in cold air, or it may be boiled or smoked. Fresh and dried bacon is typically cooked before eating. Boiled bacon is ready to eat, as is some smoked bacon, but may be cooked further before eating. Bacon is prepared from several different cuts of meat. It is usually made from side and back cuts of pork, except in the United States, where it is almost always prepared from pork belly. The side cut has more meat and less fat than the belly. Bacon may be prepared from either of two distinct back cuts: fatback, which is almost pure fat, and pork loin, which is very lean. Bacon-cured pork loin is known as back bacon. Bacon may be eaten smoked, boiled, fried, baked, or grilled, or used as a minor ingredient to flavour dishes. Bacon is also used for barding and larding roasts, especially game, e.g. venison, pheasant. The word is derived from the Old High German bacho, meaning "buttock", "ham" or "side of bacon", and cognate with the Old French bacon.

Chambers 20th Century Dictionary

Examples of Bacon in a Sentence

  1. Waller County Sheriff Glen Smith:

    From my experience, groups like The New Black Panther Party are smart, they point their guns in the air and don’t look Waller County Sheriff Glen Smith in the eye and say ‘ I ’m going to kill Waller County Sheriff Glen Smith, ’ but say ‘ pigs in blanket, ’ or ‘ need to fry some bacon. ’.

  2. Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker:

    He's praised them, but he's not speaking out about the fact that this rhetoric out there, and when you've got people say, we have people say 'pigs in a blanket' at a rally, 'fry 'em up like bacon,'.

  3. David Crimmins:

    Pre-COVID, even the pickiest people didn’t pay that much attention to tiny details like how the corners of the sheets on their beds were folded or if the bacon was semi-crispy or very crispy, now, they have a lot more time [at home] and are more agitated than they have been. They notice every little thing.

  4. Linda VanGosen:

    After such a positive customer reaction to Australia's Cheesy Bacon Fries in the Linda VanGosen, they're taking a victory lap.

  5. Chris Langdon:

    In Europe, they add the powder to smoothies, or add flakes onto food, there hasn't been a lot of interest in using it in a fresh form. But this stuff is pretty amazing. When you fry it, which I have done, it tastes like bacon, not seaweed. And it's a pretty strong bacon flavor.
