Cookbook Corner: Bacon, Bacon, Bacon!

Administrator : April 1, 2015 11:35 am : Elkhart Public Library

CookBookNewer600For several years now, a number of food blogs and restaurant trend reports have declared bacon passé.  Don’t believe it!  America has not lost its taste for bacon. In fact, April is officially National BLT Month. So this Cookbook Corner looks at recipes for bacon, lettuce and tomato sandwiches; bacon, in particular; and sandwiches, in general. Put something between two slices of bread, wrap it up, grill it, add whatever condiments you please, and serve it hot or cold.  There is a sandwich for every taste.
