It’s that time of year. School buses are out in full force, Starbucks has (prematurely) re-introduced its Pumpkin Spice Latte, and Summer Fridays have come to an abrupt end. The pre-Thanksgiving and post-beach time drag is upon us.
Lucky for you, we’ve got five bacon-filled lunch recipes to brighten your desk-bound day. These dishes are perfect to make ahead and bring to the office. No matter what your mood or craving--sandwich? salad? pasta?--we’ve got you covered. So get ready to dig in (and make your cubicle mate regret that soggy wrap from the deli down the street).
1. The Throwback: Bacon PB & J
2. The Protein Powerhouse: Kale Bistro Salad
3. The Tried and True: A Great American BLT
4. The Family Fave: Chicken Bacon Ranch Casserole
5. The Gourmet: Bacon Jam
Just for kicks...we’re throwing in a sweet bacon ending. Because who doesn’t love a perfectly crunchy-on-the-outside, chewy-on-the-inside peanut butter cookie with chocolate chunks and BACON?!?! Snack game over.
