Re: The bacon thread

this thread is making me hungry. My favorite way to eat bacon is quite boring - I just like it combined with fried eggs, soft yolk.

Just checked the Wellshire Farm site and looks good. One to try out.

Re: The bacon thread

Bacon Cheeseburge meatloaf:

Ingredients:
1 1/2lbs of lean hamburger
2 eggs beaten
1/4 cup bread crumbs
1/4 cup mayo
1/4tsp salt
1/4tsp pepper
2tbs worsteshire sauce
8oz cheddar cheese
12-15 pieces cooked bacon (crumbled up)
Mix all these ingredients together
Then combine in a small bowl 1 cup ketchup and 1/2 cup yellow mustard
add half of the ketchup mixture to meat and mix well.
after dumping in pan, pour the rest of the ketchup mixture on the meatloaf
bake for 40 min at 425 degrees

Made it last night, even included the breadcrumbs. Really good. Probably could have omitted the mayo, since my burger wasn't extra lean.

Re: The bacon thread

I'm all about seasonal vegetables, local and organic. So that means that right now - November to January at least - my bacon goes with brussels sprouts. If you scrunched your face up in disgust when reading that, you haven't tried brussels sprouts in a long time - probably since your mom boiled them or something horrendous. Do try them! Here:

-cut up plenty o' bacon, render the fat, and remove the pieces
-add thinly sliced brussels sprouts to the fat and saute at medium-high heat (they should be almost shredded, like cabbage in cole slaw)
-after just a couple minutes, they should browned and slightly caramelized
-add the bacon pieces back in, serve and enjoy

I also do this with winter squashes, if I'm willing to take in the starch. Some butternut squash cubes cooked in bacon fat, then tossed with some spinach (which wilts from the residual heat) and the bacon pieces- yum!

Re: The bacon thread

Jamie this is the greatest thread ever made on these boards.

Personally my favorite meal of the last couple of weeks has been bacon wrapped sausage. Simple and delicious

Re: The bacon thread

I do what I can. I figured there were things I've never tried with bacon and I'm so excited to try these new recipes.

I mean seriously, what other fitness/dietary site espouses the greatness of bacon? You can have the bread, I'm keeping the bacon.

Another bacon recipe

1 lb of bacon (really, why would cook less)
1 onion (I love these too)
1 head cauliflower
cup of mushrooms
cheese of your choice (not necessary, but tasty)

Cook the bacon. Break the cauliflower up up into pieces (I like bouncy ball sized pieces). Cook the cauliflower for about 2 minutes, then the onions for 2 - 3 minutes and then add in the mushrooms. Remove from heat and add cheese (if you want, I know strict paleo doesn't allow it).

I don;t like to eat this with the bacon (allows you to spread the baconny goodness over a few days). I'll eat the bacon with oranges and kiwi the next day and have the cauliflower with a roast or serve on top of chicken.

Re: The bacon thread

ANother great idea.

There are wine parties, cheese parties, etc. You can have a bacon party. Every course would contain bacon.

Soup

Bacon and potato
Bacon Chili
etc

Salad

dressing made with bacon grease and bits of bacon in the salad
or salad served in bacon bowls

Appetizers

Any of the bacon wrapped seafood
You can make little cups of bacon using similar method tot he bacon bowls
You could then fill the cup with vegies, cheese, more meat

Main course

Bacon explosion
Any of the recipes listed here

Dessert

http://www.time.com/time/arts/articl...870700,00.html (WFS unles you work for vegans or the anti-bacon establishment (the thread this was in gave me the idea for this thread))

Now, bacon drinks might be pushing it, but other than that, a five course meal all involving bacon.

Re: The bacon thread

I made these earlier this year....my suggestion(if you dont have a smoker) is to bake them at a low temperature (160-170) for about an hour or so.

Atomic Buffalo turds (wfs)http://www.thesmokering.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=657

The first batch i grilled....big mistake, they were VERY hot!

Also i suggest using some sort of latex glove for the jalapeno handling.....i did not do that and accicently rubbed my eyes. I felt like dying for about an hour....
