If you’ve ever lost the lottery, then you know what it’s like to spend your hard-earned cash on disappointment and an utterly worthless piece of paper. However, New Hampshire is attempting to tackle this problem, and reel in some new business, by exploiting one of the world’s greatest weaknesses: delicious bacon.
The state’s new “I Heart Bacon” scratch tickets offer a chance at $1,000 and reward you with the smell of smoked meat whether you win or lose. Although they normally cost a buck, you can get free tickets and slices of bacon by visiting the Verizon Wireless Arena in Manchester today, the Cumberland Farms on Main Street in Keene on Jan. 23, the Durham Marketplace on Jan. 24 or the Hooksett Welcome Centers on Jan. 30.

When Nick of Dude Foods heard about the new mac and cheese cones that Disney is debuting at some of its theme parks, he was too excited to plan a trip to try them out–he decided to make his own version at home. Nick used bread dough to make his cone, and just like the Disney version, he topped his off with plenty of bacon. Looks delicious, right?

So, why exactly did the Epic Meal Time guys use a whole mess of meat, mashed potatoes, gravy and bacon “sprinkles” to make a giant, four-foot-tall meat ice cream cone?
I have no clue. Gravy-induced insanity can be a real head-scratcher, right?

Do you ever have dreams about cured meat? We won’t judge. If you don’t and you’d like to, this bacon scented pillowcase from J&D Foods might do the trick. As long as you follow the care instructions that come with the pillowcase, the delicious smell of bacon should last for 6-12 months.
The scent will supposedly endure through wash cycles, and since the bacon smell will probably make you drool all over your pillowcase, you’ll need to wash it frequently.

…and I’m just talking about the picture. Nevermind actually trying one.
The mad culinary scientists over at Philadelphia’s PYT restaurant are at it again. Known for creating strange burger monstrosities (like the Fried Chicken and Beer Burger), they recently created a very different sort of edible experiment: the Bacon Mac & Cheese Donut. It’s a glazed doughnut that’s packed with bacon, macaroni and tons of cheese, with a little extra bacon sprinkled on top. I’m honestly very tempted right now to try and eat my computer screen.
Just look at this. LOOK AT IT!
This recipe for a Bacon Mac ‘n’ Cheese Quesadilla is pretty simple to follow, and it yields six servings in less than 35 minutes. But just a heads up: it actually calls for 2 pounds of bacon, a half pound of elbow macaroni and a whole mess of shredded sharp cheddar cheese. Not exactly healthy, but we’re okay with that.
If you’d like to learn how to make this recipe, head on over to The Thrillist.
Mmmmm… bacon. Honestly, there’s nothing better than crispy bacon and two sunny-side-up eggs. That’s why I dig this Bacon & Eggs Blanket Pillow Set. It’s sure to make your dreams about breakfast even more intense.

The bacon weave is back! It seems like it’s been a while since Nick from Dude Foods decided to use the bacon weave for a dish, so I’m kind of happy to see that he used the technique for his new Bacon Weave Ice Cream Sandwich. In order to make this rather special creation, Nick made two bacon weaves and then used a reciprocating saw to cut a one-inch thick circle of frozen ice cream. Oh, and for the record, Nick mentions that he was kind of amazed that he didn’t slice off his finger, so you might want to utilize a safer technique before trying this at home.
