There’s a $3,000 grand prize up for grabs in this year’s Great Sugardale Bac-On, sponsored by Sugardale Foods of Massillon.
It’s a recipe contest using Sugardale Bacon, so the company calls it a bac-on, not a bake-off.
Finalists will compete live at the Fabulous Food Show at the I-X Center in Cleveland on Nov. 9.
Visit www.greatsugardalebacon.com to enter, or to review complete contest rules. Enter by Sept. 29.

Soak up the ‘Sun’
British actor Mark Strong (Sherlock Holmes, Body of Lies) revisits an earlier role and production in Low Winter Sun, a series premiering at 10 tonight on AMC, following the return of Breaking Bad.
The original Low Winter Sun was a two-part English drama with Strong as Frank Agnew, an Edinburgh police detective who with a partner kills another officer. The new series again finds Strong as Agnew, this time a detective in Detroit who early on takes part in the murder of another cop.
AMC calls the 10-episode series “a contemporary story of murder, deception, revenge and corruption in a world where the line between cops and criminals is blurred.” Which, if nothing else, sure sounds like Detroit.
