Bacon Sampler: Applewood + Peppered + Cajun + Maple

Loveless Cafe ships its famous Southern food nationwide on Goldbelly! Give the gift of bacon — a full pound of each of Loveless Cafe’s signature country bacon flavors!

Located in Nashville, Tennessee, the Loveless Cafe has become a Southern landmark thanks to its quaint country charm and good lookin’ cookin’ ever since the Loveless family opened its doors in 1951. As a beacon of Tennessee tradition, the cafe still uses co-founder Annie Loveless’ biscuit recipe that remains unchanged to this day. Annie started the Southern-style restaurant and motel with her husband Lon Loveless (the motel has since been converted to shops). Sharing a scratch-made meal full of country ham, red eye gravy and Southern fried chicken at the Loveless Cafe is like sharing a meal at the Loveless home — without the fight for the last biscuit. Martha Stewart called Loveless’ breakfast the “best breakfast I’ve ever had.”

  • Bacon should be refrigerated upon arrival for up to 4 weeks, with the exception of Cajun which can be stored in a refrigerator for up to 1 week.

To Serve

Pan Fry

  • Place bacon slices in a cold skillet.
  • Cook slowly over heat and turn until slightly crisp, draining excess drippings as required.
  • Remove each slice as it browns and drain on paper towels.

Microwave

  • Place bacon strips between paper towels.
  • Cook 4 slices on high setting for 3 minutes.
  • Then, cook at 30 seconds intervals until desired crispness. Microwave temperatures and personal preferences vary.

Bake

  • Place bacon strips on a baking sheet (that has sides to contain drippings) and place in the center rack of a cold oven.
  • Turn oven on to 400° F and check bacon in 15 minutes.
  • Remove as soon as the bacon is golden brown, but not excessively crisp. Cooking times can vary depending on how quickly oven reaches temperature.

You will notice when cooking Loveless Cafe bacon that it does not shrink as much as typical grocery store bacon. This is due to the old-fashioned dry curing method used with Loveless Cafe Bacon.

I love Goldbelly. I can not wait to get my order. It is delivered and packed to perfection. The Loveless Cafe is amazing. I ordered the cream of corn and mac and cheese. My family loved it. I also ordered all my relatives Christmas presents on Goldbelly. It was effortless. They all shipped in time.

They actually made a little mistake on my order. I got the side sampler, which was supposed to be one hash brown casserole, one mac and cheese, and one creamed corn casserole. Instead I got one mac and cheese and two hash browns. But the hash brown casserole was so good I ended up perfectly happy with what I got. Very good!
