While you're frying up some eggs and bacon, we're cooking up something else: a way to celebrate today's food holiday.
It may technically be a Saturday, but it sure feels like Fry-day to us -- August 31 is National Bacon Day.
While the bacon craze may have reached peak sizzle in the last decade, with dedicated festivals, bacon-based couture, and appearances in non-breakfast courses from sundaes to cocktails, America's fixation with delicious strips of cured pork is nothing new.
The Oink Cafe, located in Phoenix, celebrated National Bacon Day with a variety of bacon-themed options, including candied bacon, various types of bacon and even bacon-infused muffins.
Watch the video in the player above to hear more from these bacon fanatics. The Oink Cafe is open until 2 p.m.
