The Bacon Rule

Home > The Bacon Rule

In August 2018, Facebook users began coming across a funny picture of cooking instructions printed on the back of a bacon package. The instructions advised consumers to “complain to elected officials” if they “don’t know how to cook bacon.” The pictured bacon packaging was invented by Black River Meats, a producer of meat products, including beef, lamb, and pork, sourced from local farms in Vermont, New Hampshire, and New York.

“If you really don’t know how to cook bacon, please contact your elected officials and complain about our education system. Every American should know how to cook bacon… Seriously”

Millions of users appreciated the humor.
