A few months ago, a trip idea was presented to me and it was one that I couldn’t really pass up on. Over the coming 5 weeks, you’ll be seeing the fruit of that labour. From April 5th all the way to the 8th, I had the wonderful chance to spend time in the states of New Jersey and New York. Over that time, I had the chance to see a whole lot and I managed to consume 5 different burgers.
This year, I’m introducing a brand new category in the end of year posts. Anyone who reads this blog regularly or follows me on social media will know that I fancy bacon way too much. The point of this post is not just to highlight bacon in its regular use, but in a way that goes above and beyond. Here, you will see the 3 items that best exemplify and most creatively use that element that we all love so much.
Today, the last Saturday before Labour Day, is one of the most prestigious holidays for all people like me. On this planet, there are millions upon millions of people who worship the cured delicacy known as bacon. Bacon has been long associated with breakfast, but as time passed, it has found itself in nearly every facet of eating. To drive that point home, did you know that bacon is a perfect dessert option? Well, after doing some more digging in the GBS archives, I’ve come up with 5 of the most extreme bacon things I’ve put in my stomach over the last 3 years.

After 12 months, 49 burgers, and what seemed like an eternity, it’s finally time to make my first burger foray into Toronto. In the past, Burger 50 came from Ottawa and Burger 100 came from Quebec City. The logical conclusion was to choose Toronto as the next epic burger in the list. So, I’m closing the third season of the Great Burger Search with one of the most talked about burger places in the entire country, Holy Chuck Burgers.
