I went on a hi protein diet and lost 50 lbs(245 to 195) in six months. My colesterol went from 280 to 90. I had two meals a day. Breakfast was bacon and eggs. Pepper crusted, thick cut, hickory smoked. Doc said to eat as much as I wanted. It worked.

I just knew I was too quick to judge!

By no authority whatsoever, I declare all day tomorrow to be [size=medium]Suffer Bacon Under Your Armpits for Redshifter Day[/size].

Who will join me?

but seriously, you have sweet and savory...the salt of the bacon would complement the semi-sweet chocolate just perfectly. don't you think?



You asked for it, you got it: I present to you, chocolate covered bacon!

I used Ghirardelli Semi-Sweet dark chocolate. It's actually pretty good. You get the sweetness of the chocolate first, then the crunch and salt of the bacon, and it finishes with the smoke flavor. Even my wife thought it wasn't too bad.

I can see it now - Reese's Bacon Cups. Or Bacon Truffles

New details on tomorrow's “mortification of the flesh” tribute. I've changed it to:

[size=medium]Suffer Chocolate Dipped Bacon Under Your Armpits for Redshifter Day[/size]

First, this still honors Redshifter. Next, it's an acknowledgment that Beerguy0 has clearly flipped his lid.




My favorite: Bacon and Feta rolled in fillo dough, quickly deep fried.

Let's not forget spagetti carbonara which is an Italian bacon and egg pasta dish. I also find that bacon tastes great with white rice too.

I remember once I went to a China Town in Philadelphia and had a thick slab of pork belly cooked in a clay pot. It was great. Pork belly is bacon in it's essence.

I also recently had a cassoulet, a French bean dish that also had a thick slab of pork belly and that was also great. The French also use thick pieces of bacon in their frisee salads and in their quiche recipes. In France, bacon is often called "lardons".

Oh gods cabonara is such gorgeous calorific sin. Right up there in competition with lasagne for the best pasta.

We used to deep fry bacon at work and I thought that it worked well. I'd forgotten about it till now. Recently we went out for a polish sausage and they deep fried it. It tasted surprisingly good. Can't be any worse than the bacon fat. For all those who are concerned about all that bacon grease please deep fry your bacon in some good olive or vegetable oil!

Dinner tonight: Chicken BLTs. We have some leftover grilled chicken breasts, so the hard part is done. I'm off to cook bacon now.



those bacon wrapped jalapenos sound delish...i think that's going to be a menu item at the next potluck i'm organizing - which will be centered around a bacon theme! it's going to be glorious!
