Today is Illinois Bacon Day!

Did you know that Illinois’ pork industry produces more than 6 billion slices of bacon each year? Today, we are celebrating this beloved protein and the pork producers who put it on our plates. Happy Illinois Bacon Day! Show your support for our state’s pork industry by using #bringhomethebacon

Below is a picture of my last BLT from last year. One of my favorite ways to eat bacon is with fresh tomatoes from the garden, lettuce and mayo.
