Indy Bacon Week features sizzling deals, mouth-watering menus

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. — Indy Bacon Week kicked off Monday and offers a variety of bacon specials around the Indianapolis area for just $5.

The week-long event is perfect for bacon lovers who are interested in exploring local eateries.

Over 25 restaurants are participating in Indy Bacon Week, including names like 317 Burger, American Pizza Company and Rooster’s Kitchen. The participating restaurants have crafted special menus featuring breakfast’s tastiest side, bacon.

Rooster’s Kitchen located on Mass Ave is offering jalapeño bacon poppers, bacon on a stick and bacon popcorn for Bacon Week- each for just $5.

Ross Katz is the owner of Rooster’s Kitchen and the man responsible for crafting the restaurant’s three bacon specials. The restaurant’s jalapeño bacon poppers are served with a side of house-made thyme and sage dressing that is perfect for dipping. Their bacon on a stick is fried and then covered with brown sugar and barbecue sauce. Their famous bacon popcorn is made entirely with Indiana grown ingredients.
