'Millionaire's Bacon' Is A New Fad In California

'Millionaire's Bacon' Is A New Fad In California

Bacon is one of those things that is great because it's so simple and easy.

It goes with just about anything, but as we know is best either between two pieces of bread or accompanied by eggs, sausages, hash browns and the rest of the ingredients for a Full English.

Weirdly, despite bacon being best in its purest form, people like to change up rashers of edible gold.

The latest is called 'Millionaire's Bacon' and although it is a change up from what we're used to, it might take a few people's fancy.


It's cut to be up to half an inch thick and is slow cooked, rather than being nonchalantly thrown in a pan of oil. What won't be met with happiness is that it can't be picked up off the shelf in Asda for a £1.50, but instead will cost $7 (£5.23) per strip.

Steven Hoyul Choi, co-owner of Sweet Maple, told the San Francisco Gate that the 'millionaire's bacon' is "almost like a bacon steak," such is the thickness of it, as well as it being "succulent, sweet and spicy with many different spices going in."

A number of restaurants, including Choi's, are picking up the cut of pork to serve up, seasoning it with cayenne pepper and sugar, before cooking it for a few hours.


It was originally trademarked in Delaware and Texas according to Choi, though it's become a bigger fad in California.

If you want to give it ago the restaurateur advises that you have one, or share with someone else.

"It's meant for two people. I don't recommend anyone eat that alone," he said, after revealing that they account for as much as six pieces of normal bacon.


If I'm honest, I can't see this dragging anyone away from a regular pack of bacon.
