If you’re one of those people who believes that everything tastes better with bacon, then you’re going to love these porky twists on classic dishes.

It’s true – not a whole lot of foods can claim they taste better than a crispy slice of bacon, but there are ways to make the salty treat even more delicious. Here, we’ve gathered six of our favourite, slightly healthier, ways to add bacon to your favourite dish. 

Egg and bacon ‘muffins’

Sunday morning’s call for these protein-packed cups. Now all you need is a cup of coffee…

2 Oat flapjacks with crispy bacon 

This high-fibre flapjack batter can be whipped up in minutes. It’s denser than your conventional flapjack, but has a delicious savoury note courtesy of the cottage cheese. The maple syrup is antioxidant-rich and pasture-reared bacon has a greater ratio of polyunsaturated fat.

This quiche recipe is a bit of a cheat, but it’s really easy to make and takes about 10 minutes to put together. Pop it in the oven and you’ll have made an entire dish in less than an hour!
