1. Kanye Prime (Nashville, Tennessee)

Not only is Kanye Prime’s Housemade Bacon appetizer almost as thick as a steak, but it is also served underneath maple cotton candy. Has anything ever sounded more intriguing than extremely thick-cut bacon topped with your favorite childhood dessert? If you’re looking for another way to add bacon to your diet, I would highly recommend giving Kanye Prime a quick visit next time you’re driving through Nashville.

  1. Gourdough’s (Austin, Texas)

Bacon definitely does not just have to be a savory item. Yes, we all love bacon alongside some eggs; but what about with something more sweet like peanut butter and bananas? Well, Gourdough’s in Austin is whipping up a genius masterpiece called the Fat Elvis. This donut is topped with grilled bananas, peanut butter icing, honey, and of course… BACON.

Get ready for this description because it’s a mouthful: Creole Creamery Coffee Pecan Brittle ice cream with a creamy bacon caramel sauce carrying a bit of black lava salt, with Nueske’s applewood bacon, layered with smoked whipped cream topped with a Luxardo cherry. Holy bacon!

  1. Smoke (Dallas, Texas)

Chef-Owner Time Byres knows how to add bacon to a burger. His famous sandwich called the EB&D Loaded Up & Truckin’ Burger stars thick-cut, house-smoked bacon, a soft farm egg fritter, and smoked sharp cheddar cheese all stacked between a homemade honey roll. This burger is smokin’!
