This little collection has everything. If you’re looking for a condiment for your burger, breakfast sandwich, or Brussels sprouts, try the bacon jam. The chopped broccoli salad will be perfect at a small barbecue; the bacon-wrapped dates at a mini happy hour on the patio. Just want a few slices of bacon? Tuck them into our pesto rice bowl.
