The Bacon Thread

Who doesn't like bacon, right?

bacon makes everything better. sure you can just fry it up as a side to go with your pancakes, but the possibilities are endless, Lets see/hear what you do with bacon.

i use it a lot, but most recently, Brown Butter and Bacon Chocolate Chip Cookies

i use a modified version of this recipe found HERE some think they sound a little odd, but when placed next to ordinary chocolate chip, these are gone first every time without fail.

Baked or grilled potatoes: slice russet 'taters ~1" thick, slice Vidalia onions (not too thin) and place between the potato slices. Put the potato/onion onto a foil rectangle, season with hint of celery seed, and a pinch each of garlic powder, salt and pepper; a pat of butter is optional. Lay a slice of bacon over the top (hickory or maple smoked bacon does NOT suck) and seal the whole mess in a leak proof, folded foil tent. Bake at 350 or grill on low for 25-30 odd minutes or until the potatoes are soft. Grilling is better, the onions tend to caramelize.

Bacon wrapped eggs

I put bacon on the smoker until it starts to render the fat, but is still pliable. Then I wrap one strip of bacon into a muffin tin, and crack an egg into the well with the bacon. Return to the smoker until the egg is cooked. Variations are scrambling the egg first, putting cheese on the last few minutes of cooking, hot sauce etc.

sounds really good Billly Bob, and a little cooked sausage added to the mix would not hurt any either IMHO .

I take a hotdog, put a slit in it the length of the dog almost all the way through, cut up slices of cheese and stick them inside it, I used provolone, then wrap the hotdog with a slice of bacon or two depending on the size of the bacon, stick some toothpicks through it to hold it together, throw it on the grill, put on a bun, enjoy.



I wrapped turkey around it also the last time just to try it, wasn't bad, but better without it IMO. Was also low on bacon so I only had two small strips left. Was bummed about that.




Threw some shredded cheese on top just for a little extra something, threw it on a bun and chowed down.

I get the larger hot dogs, think they might be 1/4lbs I wrap them in bacon and deep fry. Everything is better deep fried even bacon.

The Germans have something similar called Berner Wuerstchen. It's a hotdog infused with cheese, bacon wrapped. Really nice.

It's telling.... that some people wrap a beef filet in bacon to add flavor.
Bacon makes almost everything better.

Don't forget the bacon grease! I save my grease & use it when I smoke, chicken, ribs, what ever. I rub the grease all over the meat before placing it in the smoker. Helps keep the meat moist & gives it a little bit of that wonderful bacon flavor.

Mmm.. bacon!

We had our first ever BaconFest last week. I had bacon jalapeno naan bread, pork belly wrapped in bacon with some sort of sweet bbq sauce, bacon wrapped hot dog, peach and bacon crepe, maple bacon cupcake, bacon milkshake, bacon nachos, chocolate covered bacon on a stick, and a bacon wrapped cheese stuffed jalapeno. Mmm!
