Top Five Jim Gaffigan Bacon Quotes

Actor-entertainer-author Jim Gaffigan‘s love of food is well-documented.

Oh, sure. It’s a big part of the comedy routines for the 48-year-old, who was born in Elgin, Ill.; grew up in Chesterton, Ind.; and now lives in New York.

However, it’s been a not-so-subtle theme in his two books, 2013’s “Dad Is Fat” and the just-released “Food: A Love Story.”

So, we humbly serve up our top five Gaffigan bacon quotes — although we could’ve had 4,000 from him:

“Bacon’s the best. Even the frying of bacon sounds like applause.”

“I never feel like I get enough bacon. At breakfast, it’s like they’re rationing it. Here’s your two strips of bacon. I want more bacon.”

“I even like the name Bacon. You can’t tell me the success of Kevin Bacon isn’t somehow tied to his name. You’re not going to a Kevin Hot Dog movie. Who’s in this movie? Kevin Bacon. Sounds good.”

“Bits of bacon are like the fairy dust of the food community. You don’t want this baked potato? Brrring! Now it’s your favorite part of the meal. Not interested in the salad? Bibbity, bobbity, bacon. I just turned it into an entree. But once you put bacon in a salad, it’s no longer a salad. It just becomes a game of find the bacon in the lettuce. It’s like you’re panning for gold. Eureka! There is something dishonest, though, about putting bacon in a salad; it’s kind of like smoking while you jog. I want the BLT, but I’ll just get a salad with bacon and tomato. Can you put it between two pieces of toast and stick a toothpick through it? That’d be great.”
