Always Make Sure you Read the Whole Article…
because you never know what you are going to find.
Like today for example…
I get my daily alerts from the Google Machine and notice an article from Marcus Samuelsson’s blog where he explains the different cuts of bacon. It’s a good read as he talks through side, pancetta, slab, back, nitrate free…then I see something that makes me stop in my tracks:
Cooking with bacon can be a great way to add a little bit of flavor to a dish. You can chop some side bacon or pancetta and use it to enhance your favorite pasta, or in a banana bread or leave the strips whole and wrap them around fruits for a great appetizer like tapas or “Devils on horseback” or wrapped around oysters to make “Angels on horseback.”
Wait…back up…banana bread? Are…….you……kidding me?
Oh my! Two and a half years with this blog and I have never seen a recipe like this, nor did I never think of adding bacon to banana bread. So simple, so tasty (with chocolate chips as well), GENIUS!
