Make a flavor-packed meal with our healthy bacon recipes.
Bacon is a healthy ingredient when it’s used as a flavoring in chicken dishes, side dishes, pasta dishes and more dinner recipes. When developing recipes in the EatingWell Test Kitchen, we use bacon sparingly to add flavor to recipes without greatly increasing the saturated fat content. (One medium strip of bacon has 43 calories and 1.1 grams of saturated fat.)
