Bacon is a food item which can be eaten by the player, and is a favorite breakfast food of many people.


Bacon is dropped by pigs. They drop a maximum of 2 bacon, but the Looting enchantment increases the maximum number of possible drops by 1 per level.

Pigs can drop 1 Cooked Bacon if the player kills them with a Fire Aspect sword.


To eat bacon, right-click and hold while the bacon is selected in the hotbar. Eating bacon restores 3 hunger Half HungerHunger and 3.6 hunger saturation.

Former Versions Edit

In older versions, 2 slices of Bacon can be crafted by placing a piece of Cooked Meat in the Worktop.

It was also used to create Egg and Bacon before Cooked Bacon was introduced.
