Breakfast Makeovers With Bacon

MISSION, KS -- (Marketwired) -- 07/25/14 -- (Family Features) Experts agree that breakfast is the most important mealtime of the day, but having the same predictable dishes over and over can make this essential meal a very boring one. Instead, spice up the start of your day with a breakfast that's full of flavor. Delight your taste buds with an instant boost by adding bacon, America's favorite breakfast meat, to your morning meal.

Packing the perfect savory punch, bacon complements all breakfast staples, from pancakes and eggs to biscuits. But even these tried-and-true breakfast classics can grow lackluster over time.

Treat yourself to a better morning and a delicious breakfast by taking traditional cinnamon roll-ups and breakfast sandwiches to the next level with Farmland bacon -- available in multiple varieties, including thick cut, classic cut and low sodium. Farmland bacon is slow-smoked over real hardwoods for maximum flavor intensity, which means these recipes are guaranteed to be anything but boring and are soon to become your new go-to classics.

For more ideas to boost your breakfast, bacon lovers can join an online community featuring recipes, videos, prizes, trivia, merchandise and more. Look for the Farmland Bacon Club online at FarmlandBaconClub.com, on Twitter (@FarmlandFoods) or on Facebook (Facebook.com/FarmlandFoods).
