Bacon is even more delicious when it's delivered right to your door!

As an engagement gift from my awesome sister and best friend, Julian and I got a one-year subscription to the "Bacon of the Month Club."  Clearly, they know us well.  Every month, we recieve a package of artisan bacon as well as a suggested recipe and wine pairing and a fun bacon newsletter from The Grateful Palate, as well as a cool bacon t-shirt (mine says "I Got Porked By The Grateful Palate"), a pig nose and a ballpoint pig pen. 

Half the fun of the Bacon of the Month Club is anticipating when your next package of bacon-y goodness will arrive, and opening the insulated, cold-packed package that comes to your door.  the other half of the fun is eating it, of course.  This month, we got New Braunfels Smokehouse Peppered Bacon, which was seriously delicious, both in the recipe included for peppered bacon-wrapped hot dogs (with blue cheese and tomatoes) and by itself.  I can't wait to see what delicious pig-parts come in our next shipment!

The only downside to the BotM Club is the price.  At $315 a year, it's a bit pricey, but it does really make a "wow" gift for someone and it's something that everyone (except maybe vegetarians and people who keep kosher) will appreciate.  And it makes all your friend jealous of you.  It's true, bacon really does go with everything.

The Grateful Palate also has a whole website of bacon goodies, including bacon-lover apparel, pretty much anything bacon-flavored you could ever want, bacon christmas ornaments and even a bacon air freshener.  Y'know, for the times that your house isn't filled with the smell of cooking bacon.  Mmmm.

I looked into this as a gift, but thought it was really expensive. I am glad to hear that you are enjoying it. I may have to splurge. Thanks!

Mmmm bacon.  This sounds so much better than Harry and David's Fruit of the Month Club!  My only hope if I join this is that a bacon alarm clock arrives in the mail :)
