Bacon! Bacon! Bacon!

Spread the love

Who doesn’t love bacon? There is a whole day dedicated to this tasty food. International Bacon Day is the Saturday before Labor Day. This year’s Bacon Day is September 5th. The back story is that college students from Colorado University came up with this idea back in 2004. According to awarenesdays.comBucknell students call themselves ‘Meatheads,” since they try and consume as much bacon as possible.  

This is the day to get cooking creatively with none other than bacon! Make sure to share your recipes with us at #PLYMCAnywhere. Check out our various titles below through our catalog or our Overdrive/Libby or Hoopla apps. Happy cooking!
