Bad Food Photography- Bacon Edition

Affiliate links may be included in this post. Thank you for supporting Lifewhack!

Bacon isn’t my favorite. If I’m feeling totally saucy I’ll eat it on a burger sometimes, but usually I won’t give it the time of day. Many people I greatly admire feel something special in their hearts for bacon, and so for them I present this edition of Bad Food Photography.

If you feel moved to try your hand at one of the recipes, simply click the photos and you will be jettisoned to a world where bacon reigns supreme. All are courtesy of All Recipes.

Bacon Damn Risotto


bacon popcorn

bacon. popcorn.

This recipe calls for 1/2 cup bacon grease, so after your morning bacon you can whip some of this popcorn up for your luncheon.


bacon waffles

Bacon Waffles

I just want to be able to add a sound clip to this one because words don’t do it justice. It would be the sound of psychopathic rage meeting bubbly sweetness.

    You know of my love for bacon but some of these photographs make me ill. Popcorn cooked in bacon grease is pure genius though. Now I can put those jugs of grease I've been saving to use!

    I'm not a fan of bacon, and it will stay that way after this post.

  3. 04/16/2012 / 8:07 am

    Ok… I am a bacon lover but you have kinda changed that… just a bit.

  4. 04/16/2012 / 9:25 am

    Oh My …

    I didn't know whether to laugh or cry at the last one with the bunny eating the lettuce..

  5. 04/16/2012 / 9:47 am

    Yeuhhh. I agree with Jen. These photos kind of change all that for me.

    There really is a special art to photographing food. All recipe pictures regularly remind me of that.

    If I ever made popcorn with bacon grease, my husband would totally eat it. In fact, he'd eat any of these recipes. My husband is disgusting like that.

    Photographing food is TRULY an art.

    Thank you for helping my diet by turning me off of bacon for a while!

  9. 04/16/2012 / 12:29 pm

    No problem. Let me know if you want me to do an unappetizing chocolate one someday.

  10. 04/16/2012 / 12:30 pm

    Bacon-lovers will eat just about anything with bacon in it. I'm convinced.

  11. 04/16/2012 / 12:30 pm

    Are you saying you find these artful and beautiful?

  12. 04/16/2012 / 12:31 pm

    I think bacon is slowly being ruined for some folks today.

  13. 04/16/2012 / 12:32 pm

    It made me chortle, because it looks like the bunny eating the lettuce was more important than the food to this photographer.

  14. 04/16/2012 / 12:33 pm

    I bet you'll come around in a few days. That's the power of the bacon.

  15. 04/16/2012 / 12:34 pm

    You can't tell me the bacon and bean didn't pique your interest….

  16. 04/16/2012 / 12:35 pm

    I don't think even these can knock the bacon love out of you. It's in your veins. Let me know if you make the bacon popcorn. I gotta hear all about it.

  17. 04/16/2012 / 12:36 pm

    I. Just. Can't.

  18. 04/16/2012 / 12:36 pm

    I love bacon, but agree, that food photography needs some help. I would never pick any of those off a menu. Except maybe for the leaf the bunny is eating.

  19. 04/16/2012 / 3:29 pm

    Oh god!! Bacon is my one true love, but these photos have me questioning that. So barfy.

  20. 04/16/2012 / 3:46 pm

    That gives me the idea to open a bacon restaurant. Decorated with bunnies.

  21. 04/16/2012 / 3:47 pm

    Just cook some tomorrow and your love will be restored. It's all about the smell, girl.

    Oh my this is hilarious and tragic all at once. I happen to like bacon but these photos make me nauceous:). Love that you did this and I think I will hold the bacon for a few days:)

  23. 04/17/2012 / 5:21 am

    I love that you found this tragic. Poor bacon.

  24. 04/18/2012 / 2:15 pm

    Bacon is glorious and I don't know how long you had to scour the web to find such disgusting images depicting the porky goodness. And, anything disney screams psychotic rage meets bubbly sweetness – well put.

    I think you need the Bacon of the Month Club! Yes, it really exists!
