Breakfast food in the dark

You wake up at 3:00 AM to a tremendous thunderstorm. During a particularly bright lightning flash, the power goes out. You lay in your bed, in the dark, listening to the howling round and the pounding rain. After several moments, you realize that you're very hungry. You want something to eat, but what? It's dark, there's no power, and the only candle in the house is the one your spinster aunt and her cat gave you last Christmas. What do you do? How do you find food in a darkened house?

You sigh with relief. Your worries are in vain. You stumble downstairs to the kitchen. You open the fridge. There's no power to turn the fridge light on, but it's not necessary. You see what you want... green bacon.
