Lunch in 10 Minutes!

I am a stay-at-home mom and I cook at least two times a day. Sometimes it's hard to think of what to cook and I lose my sense of creativity.

Yesterday, when I looked at the freezer, I saw a pack of Hormel Black Label bacon. I thought of using it as an appetizer like bacon-wrapped asparagus or maybe incorporate them in my home-cooked macaroni and cheese. But then it hit me, I haven't eaten bacon for awhile and it's one of my kid's favorite viand!

What I like about the Hormel brand is that the bacon has just the right balance of meat versus fat. Some other bacon brands gives you more fat than the meat, or vice versa. With Hormel, you get the best of both. This original flavor is tasty and not too salty.
I decided to thaw and throw them in the pan. Yes, just like that. You know with bacon you don't need to use oil if you want to fry it, right? Because it will naturally secrete it's own fats. I used to put bacon in the microwave with that bacon plate tool that hold fats and separate them from the meat itself. But I miss it so much that I want to prepare it the classic way! :)

Voila! The end-result is garlic rice, some leftover corned beef and fresh crunchy bacon! Doesn't our lunch look tempting? My daughter would have finished it all on her own if I didn't stop her! LOL!

I was not paid to do a review of the product/s mentioned above. As a member of the Hormel Foods Extended Family Blogger, Mom's Tried and Tested was given samples to try but was not required to do a review of the product/s or service/s they provide. This post was based on my 100% honest opinion.


  1. Yummy bacon Sis :-) We used that brand too. It taste very delicious. You make me drool with your food too. We are also bringing bacon in our camping :-)

  2. I've tried their bacon before and loved it!

  3. The bacon looks so tempting indeed! A bite of it wouldn't hurt right? :D
