Bacon could probably solve most problems on it's own if we let it.

If we ensure the problem people eat enough bacon it will eventually kill them.

I will not lie, I got REALLY excited when I saw this thread.


Also, I totally read the last few posts as "let's turn problem people into bacon".

And solving problems by making soylent green bacon? Nah.

Which is why you buy a brand name; knowing Tesco their bacon is probably made from the last runner in Cheltenham.

That said, Irish bacon, far superior to anything produced anywhere in the world.

To make up for that, I just put bacon on everything else.  :-P

It is pretty tasty sometimes though, I'll give you that.

Good ol' pig-meat. It's great with Blood Pudding(+Lingonberry jam) and finely shredded carrots. Definitely a lesser part of the overall plate, though.

That said, Irish bacon, far superior to anything produced anywhere in the world.

I'm not sure if I hope you're kidding or not because I spent two weeks in Ireland a few years ago, and one of my biggest regrets is that I didn't eat the bacon (well, rashers) we bought.  I'm so fucking serious.  I was with a bunch of people in a rented cottage, and I tend to sleep late, and I missed out on all of it, though I remember it looking pretty fucking glorious in the package.  And I still think about it.  There's probably something wrong with me.
Title: Re: I <3 Bacon
Post by: Method of Madness on 03 Apr 2013, 19:47
I don't understand what sleeping late has to do with it, it's not like there's only one meal where bacon can be made. You saw the package, what was stopping you from making some when you woke up?
Title: Re: I <3 Bacon
Post by: mtmerrick on 03 Apr 2013, 19:48
He seemed to imply there was none left by the time he woke up.
Title: Re: I <3 Bacon
Post by: henri bemis on 03 Apr 2013, 19:50
Everyone else ate it all for breakfast, and I can hardly drive a car in the US.  Somehow I don't think the cops in Ireland would accept "I crashed the rental because I needed bacon!" as a good excuse :/
Title: Re: I <3 Bacon
Post by: Method of Madness on 03 Apr 2013, 19:51
You were there for two weeks. Did they only have it once?
Title: Re: I <3 Bacon
Post by: henri bemis on 03 Apr 2013, 19:55
I was just trying to make a light-hearted post.  Yes, I was there for two weeks.  I did not have much control over where we went, or what we bought.  I was pretty much, as folks say, along for the ride.
Title: Re: I <3 Bacon
Post by: Method of Madness on 03 Apr 2013, 19:57
Well yeah, I just meant that I can't imagine not saying "hey, could you save a couple strips tomorrow?" Anyway, I'm only doing this because now I really want some bacon and I have none.
Title: Re: I <3 Bacon
Post by: henri bemis on 03 Apr 2013, 20:07
I'm just not a very assertive person.   Except, apparently, when I get reminded that I'm not a very assertive person, and then I am PASSIVE-AGGRESSIVE ANGERBEAST!  Sorry for that.  Lets get back to what's important:

BACON.

I know it's all hipstery at this point, but bacon and jalepeno pizza is still my favorite, and while I haven't confirmed this hypothesis yet, I think bacon and peaches would make a badass sandwich.
Title: Re: I <3 Bacon
Post by: Method of Madness on 03 Apr 2013, 20:14
I'm honestly not a huge fan of jalapenos. I don't mind the spice, they just don't really have any flavor to me. Bacon pizza on its own, sure, and I'll add red pepper flakes or even hot sauce, but jalapenos? Eh.
Title: Re: I <3 Bacon
Post by: henri bemis on 03 Apr 2013, 20:35
That's fair - honestly, the jalepenos are just a barely acceptable substitute for green chile.
Title: Re: I <3 Bacon
Post by: Method of Madness on 03 Apr 2013, 20:36
Now that's something I can support.

Fair enough. I prefer habaneros to both.
Title: Re: I <3 Bacon
Post by: mtmerrick on 03 Apr 2013, 21:14
My ex LOVES habaneros. I couldn't even kiss her when she ate them, they're so spicy.

She once got a chocolate dipped ghost chili from someone as a gift. She said it was like she'd died and gone to heaven.


On topic: the best bacon is Applewood.

Bacon, as in all things, is best enjoyed in moderation.

I mean, why would you want to take all that smoky, salty greased goodness for granted?

Eeek, I can't do the spicy pepper thing. They make me all sniffly and snotty and teary and gross.


However, bacon and olive pizza is fabulous.

I know it's a matter of preference, but...why ruin good bacon pizza (or anything) with olives? They're quite gross to my taste buds.

Title: Re: I <3 Bacon
Post by: Pilchard123 on 08 Apr 2013, 14:41
Tasteless as in "considered to ... offend against what is regarded as appropriate behaviour" rather than "lacking flavour".

What's a ReindeerDog? Lapponian Herders (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lapponian_Herder) don't seem to fit either of those definitions.

I was reading one of my favorite blogs, and the recipe list made me think of this thread.

And then THIS line made me LOL so hard I blew Mtn. Dew thru my nose....  :D
(3) Selective Tourettes while cooking is the only thing keeping me from my own Food Network show (#^@& Mother *#&@ that's HOT!) 

Part of the recipe list:
Bacon and Onion Tart
Bacon and Shrimp Eggs Benedict
Bacon Cheddar Quiche
Bacon Coleslaw
Bacon Florentine Style Quiche
Bacon infused refried beans
Bacon Maple Cupcakes
Bacon Maple Deep Dish Quiche
Bacon Maple Whiskey Scones
Bacon Quiche with Hash Brown Crust
Bacon Redeye Gravy on Cornmeal-Chive Biscuits
Bacon Swiss Quiche
Bacon Waffles

MY favorite recipe:  (and it only took me 3 tries to get it right)
Gun Show Meat Sauce

2 cans (14.5 ounces) whole tomatoes
2 cans tomato paste
1 tablespoon dried basil
1 tablespoon dried parsley
(Note, if you are really short on time you can substitute two jars of basil tomato marinara sauce for these first four ingredients).

1/4 teaspoon dried rosemary
1 teaspoon Penzey's Italian seasoning (a general mixture of thyme,oregano, rosemary and basil)
1/8 teaspoon salt
2 or 3 grinds of fresh ground pepper
1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper.
1 large onion
3 tablespoons olive oil
3 cloves garlic roasted and chopped (or used jarred minced garlic).
1/2 heaping teaspoon wild honey
1/2 cup red dry table wine (I used Smoking Loon Merlot)
1 1/2 pounds ground venison
1 tube of "hot" breakfast sausage (I used Jimmy Deans but Bob Evans also has a good one)
9-10 pieces center cut bacon
4 ounces goat cheese

Mix tomatoes, paste, spices and honey and let simmer for 15 minutes while you do the next steps.

Saute onion with garlic until softened in the olive oil, do not drain. While it caramelizes, fry venison, drain (if needed) and set aside. Fry pork sausage, drain and set aside. Cook bacon, drain and chop. Add meats into sauce and let simmer, covered on low for another 15-30 minutes. Add red wine and continue to cook for another 15-45 minutes on low, covered. (Times are estimate, I put the burner on very low and let it sit, covered, for an hour after just adding the meat and the wine, as I had a couple guests running late).

Just before serving stir in 4 ounces of goat cheese (or cream cheese) and stir until blended

Serve over pasta with Parmesan/Romano to sprinkle on the top.
