Denny’s Baconalia is Making a Return, Let’s Give Away a Gift Card

Today I was at Denny’s headquarters in South Carolina and tasting the second coming of Baconalia. I’d give you the scoop now, but I’m tired and need to sleep off the massive amount of bacon sitting in my belly.Denny's HeadquartersIn the meantime, one of you will win a $20 Denny’s gift card if you can leave a comment on this post for me. The only rule is talk about bacon. Not talking about bacon will result in disqualification. Good luck. By the way, I don’t believe in luck. Only bacon…

  34. Jeanie Ortiz says:

    Every year the last Thurs of Feb my family has our own holiday where we each prepare a bacon dish and judge them “Chopped” style. The winner gets a prize. Leap years we take the whole week and call it “Bacon Vacation”. It’s always fun to sample various gourmet bacons and see what each other comes up with for a dish.

  35. Jen in CO says:

    Bacon, did someone say bacon 🙂

  36. Dustin H. says:

    A lot of times I’ll order a veggie burger at a restaurant, with bacon added to it, just to see the server’s reaction. But I actually enjoy it like that.

  37. Pradley says:

    bacon with ice cream now thats what I like

  38. Whitney says:

    I went to a Paleo potluck/ladies night this past weekend and a friend of mine brought 40 pieces of bacon from Denny’s. she said the waitress didn’t believe her when she called her order in. 🙂 mmmm, bacon!

  48. Noodlez says:

    I think Denny’s needs to add chicken fried bacon with gravy to Baconalia round 2.

  49. SITERBUN says:

    Bun put bacon and pizza sauce in blender, blend it up, then make pizza with that sauce! Gives the sauce Beautiful flavor!

  50. Beefonstick says:

    I’ve always found the word “baconalia” mildly disturbing. But that doesn’t matter because it still means Bacon.

  51. SITERBUN says:

    Bun put bacon and pizza sauce in blender, blend it, and make pizza with that sauce. Make Beautiful flavor!

  52. Sherry says:

    Bacon got so overplayed in the last couple of years. I’m not the biggest fan of it originally and I like it in moderation so long as it’s with something else, but really, bacon desserts? Bacon doesn’t make everything better and more bacon is sometimes bacon overkill. I much rather have a bacon avocado sandwich with two slices of bacon much more than I would having it with five.

  53. Max says:

    Bacon cures all woes

  54. cole2kb says:

    If I got this gift card, I would get them to make me a peanut butter and bacon burger. Do they even have peanut butter there? Knowing the people that work at my local establishment, I bet if I brought in my own they wouldn’t care.

  55. Jonathan Wayne says:

    Bacon. Now go give the card to the freeloaders.

  56. David says:

    Bacon your browser?

    type in bacolicio.us/http:// before the URL and you got yourself a delicious website.

    Also, Denny’s is a decent restaurant. One I’d go to if I didn’t have to pay.

    This Baconalia sounds intriguing. I love bacon.

  62. Junior says:

    Bacon is like my family

  63. Cecil says:

    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! 😀

  64. Cecil says:

  78. Jeff says:

    Bacon? That’s one of my favorite foods that end in “con”!

  79. Joseph Reilly says:

    My brother and I were talking recently, and we realized that we have both cooked more than our share of bacon in our time…how much of that bacon actually made it to the table, however…well, that’s just not up for discussion 🙂

  80. Anthony says:

    Show me the bacon!

  81. Michael Flory says:

    We love bacon! We went to the Bacon Festival in L.A. last month… Sooooo delicious… You could smell bacon blocks away before we even got there!

  87. Jugomugo says:

    Onions and bacon cooking up just makes your kitchen smell so good. In fact, one day I’m going to come up with a room deodorizer that smells like bacon and onions. It’s a fabulous smell. — Paula Deen

  88. Robert says:

    The one way to get me to go eat at your place is to focus on Bacon. Well played Dennys, well played.

  89. Chantal says:

    I’m making some donuts this weekend that I found a picture of with maple frosting and bacon sprinkles. Can’t. WAIT.

  90. Lily Sheng says:

    OMG I justed decided to go check out the new Baconalia menu at Denny’s this Sunday, will be a plus if I won this giftcard! I missed it last year (actually, I was able to try the Maple Bacon Sundae upon request at a very friendly Denny’s right outside of LA when I was on my road trip) so this time around I’ll make sure to have the Bacon and White Chocolate stuffed French Toast (mmmmmmmmm!). Can anyone vouch for their French Toast? Most diner French Toasts taste too leavened, too much like baking powder/soda. Hopefully the bacon will work its magic and hide it! 😉 While there, I might not be able to hold the thought of having the fried red velvet cake balls from their Hobbit menu, if they still offer them! Thanks for the giveaway!

  91. MP says:

    Too many high school kids down at my local Lenny’s ..er Denny’s. (nope, not trying to win, either).

  92. Matt says:

    My mom is super crazy, she is the one person I know who doesn’t like bacon! I mean who doesn’t like bacon?!? I sometimes wonder if I wasn’t switched at birth!

  93. Anne Sutton says:

    Martha Stewart has an awesome bacon pancake recipe…for a day when you don’t feel like schlepping out of the house to the nearest Denny’s or IHOP 😉 http://www.marthastewart.com/326883/bacon-pancakes
    Personally I would hit up Denny’s in my PJs rather than break out the pots and pans…sooo lazy.

  94. kevin says:

    bacon is good with Sriracha

  95. Dave C says:

    I’m all about the bacon!

  114. ratbuddy says:

    I like bacon. I like bacon spaghetti. Here’s my recipe:

    Ingredients: pound of bacon (the regular thin kind, fancy thick stuff is no good), pound of regular spaghetti, parmesan, italian seasoning, crushed garlic, black pepper, one egg (beaten). Crushed red pepper optional.

    Cook up a pound of bacon. Drain it, but SAVE THE FAT!!
    Chop the bacon into tasty half inch pieces.
    Time it so your pound of spaghetti (al dente is a must for this) is ready to drain just as the bacon is done and chopped.
    Dump the pasta back in the pot, put it back on the burner, dump the bacon in the spaghetti, and add about a half cup of the bacon grease. Mix it up.
    Add some italian seasoning, lots of parmesan, and lots of crushed garlic, maybe 4-6 cloves (precook it for a little while in some bacon grease if you don’t like strong garlic flavor). Little bit of black pepper, and crushed red pepper if you like. Stir it up again.
    Turn the burner back on to medium or so, and swirl that beaten egg in. Stir like crazy until the egg kinda coats the pasta and stuff, and you’re done. Sometimes I like to use two eggs.

    Serve with a bit more parmesan.

    Mmm.
