How bacon and eggs became the American breakfast

What a fascinating bit of trivia on how propaganda turned bacon and eggs into an American breakfast standard.

Believe it or not, though, bacon’s association with the American breakfast is barely a century old. Before this, the majority of Americans ate more modest, often meatless breakfasts that might include fruit, a grain porridge (oat, wheat or corn meals) or a roll,  and usually a cup of coffee.

    While I enjoy bacon and eggs, we don’t eat them daily. Usually just once a week. I have heard bacon described as the gateway meat for former vegetarians. It just smells so good!
