Better with Bacon – Bacon Pancakes

This weekend, while in Chicago, my group decided to have breakfast at the Original Pancake House.  Boy howdy!!!  That was some fine eatin’ (which I will post about as soon as I have the photographic evidence I need to visually confirm how YUMMY it was).

One of their menu items was Bacon Pancakes…

So in that spirit, I present to you this week, THIS recipe for your own hotcakes with sweet pork meat!

How do you not stop in your tracks, turn immediately right and enter this restaurant??

If you can’t read it, allow me to spell things out for you:

1. The Sampler – strips of bacon from farms in three different states, bacon marmalade on cheddar biscuit

2. The Entree – choice from 4 bacon favorites – blt, mac & cheese, pizza, grilled cheese

3. The Bacon Brownie – served warm with side of Jack Daniels whipped cream.

I WOULD NOT LEAVE THE RESTAURANT!

More about this dining experience from the young lady who took this picture (and ate the food) over at “Blondie and Brownie“…

The Foo Fighter’s Fight for Food…

Not just any food like “promoter pasta” but real food, good food…so of course that means bacon!

Their latest concert rider comes in at 52 pages.  Part seven features their “Field Guide To Food Coloring Book And Activity Pages“.  I’ve pulled together two pages that may be of interest to the FoTDB, but strongly encourage you to witness the entire section in all it’s glory.  Also, I’d suggest attempting the word search…it’s a little more complicated than you may think and it includes a “hidden message” for all those promoters out there.

I’m printing the Dave Grohl cover especially for Lil’ to color.  Think of the street cred she’s going to get at daycare…

Better with Bacon – Jolene’s Energy-Packed Bacon Candy!

I know that we have featured “candied” bacon before in out “Better with Bacon” segments but this is different for three reasons:

A) The recipe is in video form, 2) the video is of Jolene the Trailer Park Queen and third, the recipe includes my other love and addiction, coffee.

So watch and learn grasshoppers!
