PRIZE DRAWING: Because Denny’s Baconalia Is Back!

Two years ago, Denny’s celebrated Baconalia by rolling out a line of bacon-heavy dishes, like Pepper Bacon & Eggs, the Ultimate Bacon Breakfast, the Spicy Pepper Bacon Jack Burger, and the Maple Bacon Sundae.

Last year, there wasn’t a Denny’s Baconalia celebration. I don’t know why, but my guess is that the previous Baconalia celebration caused the swine population to dwindle to the brink of extinction.

This year, Baconalia is back and Denny’s has not only brought back a few entrees from their previous celebration, but they’ve also introduced a pig’s worth of new bacon menu items.

Caramel Bacon Stuffed French Toast

  1. I would love to try some bacon at Denny’s bacon-alia. I haven’t been to a Denny’s since I was a kid.

  2. We love bacon so much, we used to get visited by the Bacon Bandit leaving us bacon recipes for thinks like Bacon wrapped asparagus and bacon wrapped pork chop (so really bacon wrapped bacon). BACON!

  3. I made Colcannon for dinner. Sautéed the cabbage in bacon and sprinkled the top with more bacon.

    Tomorrow I will make chocolate covered bacon with thick cut bacon.


  4. Even though the idea of bacon with my desserts still sounds disgusting, I wouldn’t mind trying that Salted Caramel Brownie Sundae with Bacon.

  5. I’ll just go with my order that I’d use the card for. A big plate of Bacon, with a side of Bacon, and the whole thing covered in bacon bits. And as long as I’m there I’d have to try the Seasoned red-skinned potatoes topped with Cheddar cheese and diced bacon.

  6. Is it bad I was slightly expecting this to just be a giveaway for a package of raw bacon? I’d rather use the money to get a bacon sundae and realize (for the third time) how bad of an idea it is.

  7. Here’s a bacon haiku:

    Bacon is tasty
    But too much of a good thing
    Can cause pain or death

  8. Pepper Bacon Avocado Omelet should be served with a side of the Bacon Cheddar Potatoes. Why didn’t they do bacon wrapped bacon sausage?

  9. I’m such a bacon fan. And we’re getting a Dennys right next to my work, so I’ll be able to bacon it up whenever I want!!!!

  10. i’ll take the caramel bacon stuffed french toast. with a salted caramel brownie sundae with bacon for dessert. DON’T JUDGE ME.

  11. If bacon is wrong, then I don’t wanna be right! Hit me with a triple shot of that delicious, crispy fried BAAAAAACON!!!!

  12. Over winter break a dennys opened up in my town and pretty much became our new go-to “it’s 4am and we just finished playing board games and/or are drunk” spot so GOOD TIMING on this. Even though I usually choose sausage over bacon. also, bacon.

  13. Bacon is overrated. But in moderation, bacon can be quite good but there is such a thing as too much bacon.

  14. If I won this, I could eat bacon and not feel bad. I try to be good and only keep turkey bacon at home, but it just isn’t the same.

  15. I would like to try the next round of Baconalia, I will represent bacon to the fullest in every endeavor possible. I ate a pound of bacon in 5 minutes last year at the bacon eating contest at Baconfest here and I will improve my status this year! LONG LIVE BACON! 😀

    oh and I almost forgot, I made a whole dj routine about bacon too :

  16. His dark brown eyes, the color of the finest apple wood smoked bacon pierced through me to my very soul. I struggled against the bacon bonds that secured my wrists and ankles to the bed. Tiny trickles of bacon grease rolled off his chin to my supple lips, I drank hungrily.He pulled out the bacon whip, each strand well done and crispy. I was terrified and excited all at once, terrified of my punishment, excited that I could have my punishment with pancakes in the morning.

  17. my cousin just went to Denny’s and did not get ANY bacon! As a (mostly) paleo eater, I can say I’ve had takeout bacon from the D many a time. 🙂

  18. I love bacon. I love my friends. If one of my friends eats my bacon, they are my friend no more. The bacon will never betray me.

  19. I don’t usually do Denny’s, but I did try it during the last Baconalia. Bacon bacon everywhere. Had the BLT. The bacon wasn’t bad but the rest of the sandwich was lame. I would love to try the desserts this time!

  20. Tacos in a bacon shell, and a bacon frenzy from Denny’s. Those mac and cheese bites with bacon are looking like a nice snack.

  21. I’d have to get the pepper bacon avacado omelet! Or, maybe the ultimate BLT… Definitely not down with the bacon + sweet concept but bacon + avacado = YUM!

  22. Would love to get this to go eat tons of delicious bacon with my bro.

    ….bacon. 😉

  23. Isn’t bacon just fantastic, I mean everything is just better with bacon but everyday I am saddened by the fact that my mother, my own mother, is the only person on Earth who doesn’t like bacon, oh cruel fate, why have you given her this curse that she must live with?!?

  24. Ode a la Bacon

    Reminds me of Epic Mealtime
    So much frying
    And flipping

    I don’t always enjoy bacon
    On its own
    But look there!
    Bacon a la mode?
    Bacon in a milkshake?
    That’s somewhat strange.
    I’d try it anyways.

  25. I feel like the dog from those Beggin Strips commercial – “Bacon! Bacon! Bacon! Bacon! ITS BACON!”

    Im pretty sure I would destroy just about everything on the menu and go into a nice cozy bacon induced coma.

  26. I’m ready to get my bacon on and try the Salted Caramel Brownie Sundae with Bacon along with the BBQ Bacon Mac ‘n Cheese Bites

  27. To quote Diablo Cody, bacon is the chocolate of meats. Delicious, fabulous bacon.

  28. I want bacon because I love bacon. I hope I win some money so i can eat som bacon. Thank you. Kevin Bacon.

  29. I have never been to Denny’s, but I sure do enjoy bacon and would love to try all of their bacon goodies.

  30. You mean bacon just twice and only twice? No more than twice? What if I wanted to say bacon three times in a row?

  31. Bacon, the basic building block of meal awesomeness, is back at Denny’s, & I couldn’t be happier! Viva la bacon!

    (Yep, that’s my real last name.)

  32. I like bacon. I like baking. My fiance thinks that sometimes I say I like bacon, when I say I like baking. I like baking bacon.

  33. I made chocolate chip cookies with bacon bits tonight. Now I’m trying to figure out which dessert I will incorporate bacon into next.

  34. When I go to Denny’s, I always make sure to get bacon. I always take my mom to eat there, but she doesn’t like bacon too much. Oh well, her loss!

  35. Yum! I love bacon. I must try all of these new bacon dishes (or at least a few of them).

  36. I absolutely love bacon in any and all forms. But I have to say I’m particularly partial to whole wheat pancakes (stuffed with charred bacon) and generously topped with a maple bourbon glaze!

  37. My tio Pancho is an 80 year old man and if most people are 90 some percent water, he is 90 some percent beer. My goal is to be like that, but with bacon and Denny’s new bacon iten would help me get a great start.

  38. I remember when Denny’s had Baconalia, used to go nearly everyday! It got to the point where the waitresses knew me by my name. But hey, sue me, I worked right next to the Dennys and no one can turn down bacon. One of my biggest regrets before the Dennys closed down was not trying the maple bacon sundae. bacon in an ice cream sundae sounds disgusting, but who knows? maybe it tasted delicious.

  39. There was a Denny’s near where I used to live in California. When my biker friend camped out at my place, he’d take me out to breakfast the next morning if he had time. Breakfast would’ve usually included bacon. I don’t think they ever screwed up the bacon.

  40. While I don’t love bacon as much as some people seem to, I’d love a chance to try these new bacon dishes.

  41. I’m currently wearing a bacon themed t-shirt that has a pig saying “MMMMMMMM Bacon”

  42. Reminds to go play The Baconing that I bought from Steam. Also, has anyone tried bacon strips on top of a maple bar donut? I’ve heard it’s darn tasty, and a perfect pair with the bacon.

  43. I could totally go for a bacon feast courtesy of this blog. There’s so much bacon here, though I still think there should be a chocolate-bacon as well as a maple-bacon shake. Don’t knock it til you try it!


  45. I had a piece of bacon earlier today, probably about a half hour ago. Maple smoked….delicious*
    I need bacon to survive. Please help me live Impulsive Buy!!

  46. Gotta admit, I’m looking forward to trying the bacon french toast. But is the milkshake replacing the bacon sundae? Now I wish I’d gotten it sooner.

    And good lord, that bacon brownie? The only thing missing is pralines.

  47. My friend once told me turkey bacon is as good as regular bacon.
    He is wrong. I hate him.

  48. That three-egg omelet with bacon looks yummy, well actually they all look good. Can’t go wrong with bacon!

  49. Life isn’t like a pound of bacon, cause you always know what your gonna get.

    Bacon is as bacon does.

  50. I love bacon. I’m not sure I’d eat a Sundae with bacon on it, but I know some people enjoy it.

  51. Oh my bacon this is beautiful. I wonder how many orders of bacon mac n cheese bites $20 will buy.
