Vegetarians… You probably knew that if you held out long enough, you’d eventually be able to enjoy bacon like normal people. Well, veggies… Your time wondering what all the fuss is about, may finally be over with Bacon Seaweed.

Originally bred to be a protein-rich food source for sea snails, researchers at Oregon State University may have cracked the code on guilt-free bacon. After 15 years of research on this dulse form of seaweed, they discovered that, when fried, it tastes just like bacon.

Snail food or not, SLTs and seaweed veggie burgers are merely a gateway to bacon-related eating. Congrats.

Pigs-in-a-Blanket are so last year. There’s now a new pork-filled pastry to serve at your fancy cocktail party.

Adorable pig, check… Pork filling, check and check. Whip up a batch and enjoy your next cocktail party, fancy pants.
