Do You Dare to Brave Denny’s Baconalia?
If you’re a fan of bacon, then Denny’s is the place for you to be right now. They recently launched a limited time promotion called Baconalia, “the sacred festival of bacon” (as the commercial states). They have created 7 new dishes to celebrate, including some bacon dishes you never thought you’d see…
Here’s what you can expect to see on the Baconalia menu:
-Ultimate Bacon Breakfast: Two eggs, hashbrowns, toast, and 6 slices of hickory-smoked bacon. If that’s not a heart attack on a plate, I don’t know what is!
-Bacon Flapjacks: These are nothing more than pancakes with chunks of bacon in them.
-Pepper Bacon & Eggs: Eggs, hashbrowns, toast, and a 2 strips of bacon. It’s the Ultimate Bacon Breakfast on a diet.
-Triple Bacon Sampler: Turkey bacon, pepper bacon, and hickory-smoked bacon (6 strips in total), plus hashbrowns and two eggs.
-Bacon Meatloaf: Beef & bacon meatloaf with hickory ketchup and bacon crumbles on top. The least appetizing dish of the bunch.
-BBBLT Sandwich: Your typical BLT with a bit of extra “B” (8 strips extra!)
-and…the piece de resistance: Maple Bacon Sundae: Vanilla ice cream with chunks of bacon and a drizzle of maple flavored syrup. Ugh…
While I’m sure many of these dishes taste delicious, I’m pretty sure I’d have to get on the elliptical and stay on it for about 7 days straight after sampling even one of these bacon delights! (This coming from the girl who stuffed her face at the Chicago Bacon Takedown last year!)
How do you feel about Baconalia? Are you excited to taste these bacony recipes or are you going to avoid it like the plague?
