Bacon on everything! Kentucky Fried Chicken's cashing in on the "everything's better with bacon" trend, introducing their newest artery-hardener, the Cheesy Bacon Bowl. Why stand on formality and separate your meal into discrete categories like mashed potatoes, fried chicken, corn, gravy and cheese? Simply, pile them all into one slop bucket (ahem, bowl) -- then, top it with bacon.
