This Bacon Potato Biscuit with Bacon Gravy and More Bacon is Divine

Depending on what how intense your love of bacon is — ranging from “I will eat it and enjoy for breakfast” to “I named my first child Bacon and subscribe to multiple bacon subscription boxes” — every day, might be National Bacon Day for you. If it is not, we’ve got two things to say: First, maybe try celebrating bacon every day, it might do you good. Second, if you only need one day to celebrate bacon, then do we have a breakfast recipe for you.

While there will surely be plenty of establishments and companies celebrating National Bacon Day (September 1), the Snooze, an A.M. Eatery chain based in Denver, which serves breakfast all day long, really turns the bacon dial up to 11 by offering a series of dishes that feature this pory delight to the extreme. This year — the restaurant’s tenth celebrating National Bacon Day — Snooze will be serving up a bacon-ized Bloody Mary, a cinnamon toast bacon sticky bun pancake, and an eggs Benedict dish called the Bacon Blanket Biscuit Benny.

If you’re near a Snooze location, you can indulge in all things bacon while also helping local food banks; 10 percent of proceeds from National Bacon Day go to food banks and food-related nonprofit organizations in the communities where the restaurants are located.

If you’re not near a Snooze location, don’t worry — Snooze has shared its Bacon Blanket Biscuit Benny recipe so you, too, can indulge in National Bacon Day wherever you are.

Before that, though, we’d be remiss in not pointing out that Snooze and Tender Belly, the sole provider of all Snooze’s bacon, have partnered up to give four lucky fans free bacon for a year. Yes, you read that right. To enter, go to Snooze, an A.M. Eatery on Facebook, click on the Events tab, find the Bacon Day Event happening near you, RSVP, then comment within the event and share a dish you would like to make with bacon! You can comment multiple times for more chances to win.

And now, onto the benny!

This sweet potato casserole recipe will steal the show at Thanksgiving
Level up your sweet potato game with a crunchy, nutty surprise
Sweet potato casserole recipe

One of the beautiful things about so many Thanksgiving dishes is that, on any other day, for any other meal, they would be considered desserts. It's kind of similar to the way cake has been masquerading as a breakfast food for years under the alias of "muffin." Are people really buying it? For the sake of traditional Thanksgiving, foods, and the magic that is the wonderful holiday, we'll play along. Just know that if you want to eat this sweet potato casserole as a dessert, that would make sense, too. Otherwise, pile it right next to the green bean casserole.

Unlike many traditional, sweet potato casserole recipes, this one leaves out the marshmallows. Blasphemy, you may cry! But hear us out. While we all love a sweetly toasted marshmallow, the salty crunch this topping provides will have the white fluff out of your mind in no time. This topping adds a gorgeously nutty texture to an otherwise strictly creamy sweet potato casserole dish, and we are here for it. The savory nuttiness from the pecans is also a welcome addition, adding a depth of flavor and interest to the traditional side.
