Whole-Grain Pancakes with Eggs and BaconIt’s no secret that bacon is a perennial family-friendly favorite, and on this morning’s all-new episode of The Kitchen, the co-hosts offered their top secrets for preparing it just right every time.

To dream up dishes such as Bacon Guacamole (No. 1), Bacon-Beer Mussels (No. 22) and Bacon Muffins (No. 32), testers went through hundreds of ideas. “We don’t put things in for shock value,” tester Leah Brickley says. “The recipes always taste good and have appeal.”

The chefs developed their own version of the trendy Bacon Explosion (see the original here), but in the end, decided it was a little too over-the-top to make the cut.
