Yummy, Yummy Bacon and Other Stuff

Pigs In Space….

As it is my duty to inform you (my 10′s of readers) about any and all things bacon, I humbly present the bacon rocket!

Yes, that is right…they made a rocket out of bacon.  Now I applaud them for their ingenuity and creativity but there is a part of me that can’t get over what a waste of tasty, tasty pork this really is.

I mean, you could at least eat the bacon AK-47 after you took the pictures you needed to document such a feat, but this… (tear)

Ring in the New Year with Bacon…

So I have been told that on December 31st, or what is called “New Year’s Eve“, that people get together and enjoy a libation of two in anticipation of a giant ball dropping in NYC at the stroke of midnight.

If you are gonna drink tonight, why not skip the basics and get adventurous?! Make yourself a Bloody Bacon & Grilled Cheese?

This from the ladies who developed the McNuggetini and the delicious sounding Ham Daiquiri.

Raising a glass to you and yours…Happy New Year!

Better with Bacon – Bacon Cheeseburger Roll-Ups…

First off, I’m a loser…sorry…this old man has found himself fallin’ asleep before 9 pm for three of the last four nights (last night I was at the Red Wings game) so my posts dried up, but we are back once again! I’ll save you the Bacon Academy football recap (they won, but man this team is WAY too inconsistent, and that’s from a Lions fan) and just jump right into the good stuff…

This recipe right out of the Kraft Food & Family email I got today – Bacon Cheeseburger Roll-Ups.

Recipe after the jump… [Read more →]

My goodness…I think this is a winner!!  My mouth instantly began watering just reading the name of the recipe…then I saw this photo!  I’m HUNGRY!!!

I quote from OurBestBites.com…

“It’s a twist on Teriyaki chicken and you’re going to be pretty hard-pressed to find people, especially men, unimpressed by meat wrapped in meat and then grilled.”

So true, so true!  The recipe is after the jump. You can also get the recipe and see step by step photos at OurBestBites.com.

I think this is something you’ll want to make for dinner tonite.  That nice salty taste of bacon with the sweet sticky glaze of teriyaki…YUM, YUM! [Read more →]

Mouth Waterin’…

Seriously, I dare you to look at this photo and not find yourself smacking your lips…

 

Real bacon, homemade potato chips people!!

Not only is this a perfect marriage of flavor but they went ahead and gave them a great name as well –  “Who’s Your Daddy“.  

Who is your daddy indeed! 

Check out their site, read their story…it’s a good one.

You can pick these up through Foodzie.com, but you got to buy a package of five (at $5 a pop).

Maybe I’ll buy a case and give some away here….hmmmmm. (Or you know…maybe these guys could send me some??????)

Bacon Pic of the Day – Bacon Tree…

O Bacon Tree, O Bacon Tree!
Thou tree most fair and lovely!
O Bacon Tree, O Bacon Tree!
Thou tree most fair and lovely!
The sight of thee at Christmastide
Spreads hope and gladness far and wide
O Bacon Tree, O Bacon Tree!
Thou tree most fair and lovely!

More Bacon Candy – The Sticky Pig…

It’s seems like I struck a nerve with that bacon caramel recipe yesterday as TDB has it’s highest number of visitors for one day.  KA-POW!

Never let it be said that I don’t “listen” to the will of the people.  You guys are interested in bacon candy, so more bacon candy you shall have.

These marvelous little morsels are from The Sticky Pig.  They do one thing and one thing only – candied bacon confections.  From the looks of these photos, they do that well.

Up above is the four pack featuring flavors; Coconut Curry Lime, The Elvis, S’mores and Apple Pecan Dulce de Leche.

These hand crafted beauties aren’t cheap (the four pack goes for $20) but I don’t think that’s gonna stop me from trying them.

Visit their site to see all their flavors and meet the self described “Bacon Vixen” who started it all.
