Have you ever thought to yourself, “This (insert food here) would taste so much better with bacon and hot sauce”? I know that’s something that runs through my head daily. If there are two things in this world that can something better (check that…3 things, because BBQ Makes Everything Better), it’s bacon and hot sauce. Many times over I have put both of these on sandwiches, soups, salads, steaks, pork chops, chicken, eggs….this list goes on. In fact, this morning for breakfast I had a breakfast burrito with bacon and hot sauce, for lunch I had a turkey club sandwich with bacon and hot sauce, and for dinner…well, I had boneless buffalo wings, but they definitely would have been better if I had wrapped them in bacon. Point being here, how could Bacon Mania not yield a product that combines both of these intoxicating culinary marvels? The answer…it did!
A few years ago the fine folks at Bacon Hot Sauce were just a group of friends hanging out on a Sunday morning craving eggs and potatoes with bacon and hot sauce. One person stated that “bacon makes everything better”, while another contended that “hot sauce makes everything better”. A third person declare “you’re both right”, and Bacon Hot Sauce was born.
Like many sauces, the official recipe has gone through multiple iterations before landing on the finalized production version. They consulted with industry leading food scientists, as well as thought leaders from both the bacon and hot sauces industries to develop a quality product that will live up to the high standards held by fans of these respective foods.
