Broke-Ass Porn: Niman Ranch Bacon

Once a week we present Broke-Ass Porn.  It’s visually stimulating material for the financially impaired.  If this shit doesn’t get you going, you’re not as broke as you thought:

Let me start off by saying that I’ve never had bad bacon.  Even the shit that’s precooked and meant to be microwaved for 10 seconds is still pretty damn tasty.  But I had a recent revelation: Niman Ranch Bacon is the best bacon I’ve ever had.

I didn’t know this sweet forbidden meat (I’m Jewish remember) could get any better, but the Niman Ranch variety absolutely blew my mind.  Here’s why it’s Broke-Ass Porn though: it’s not very cheap.

Now why is this stuff so good?  Is it because the little piggy is raised humanely, sustainably and with no hormones?  That’s probably got something to do with it.  Another reason might be that lately I’ve been cooking everything in coconut oil which is far healthier (but a bit expensive).  Whatever it is, it’s causing me to have a bacon addiction; I came home yesterday and all I could think about was eating bacon.  Yes, I had a snack and it was just bacon…then I had some more later.

Luckily I’m too broke to indulge like this all the time which is why I’m gonna save that delicious Niman Ranch bacon grease and use it to butter my bread later.  Just kidding…not really.

What’s your biggest food indulgence?  Please share below.

    Seriously, wasting bacon grease should be a crime. Your great-granpappy would just about tear up if he saw you wash that sweet fatty mess town the sink. Use it to fry your damn eggs in.
