After the “all Charlie” post yesterday, I can across a series of Facespace messages from another long time FoTDB Dina (SHOUT OUT!). Dina’s been a BIG supporter of this little blog and just after the New Year she sent not one but five, FIVE, recipes that included candied bacon.
See something you like? Of course you do!
Thanks for all the bacon love Dina and for being a loyal TDBer!

I LOVE bacon. I also love coffee. So how could this go wrong?
Coffee Glazed Bacon
- 6 to 8 slices of Smoked Bacon
- 1/4 cup Brown Sugar
- 1/4 cup Hot Espresso
- 1/4 tsp Paprika
- 1/4 tsp Black Pepper
You’re gonna have to pop over to Instructables to get those (and see step-by-step photos).

Part two of our continuing search for good “over the counter” packaged bacon! Today it’s Smithfield Naturally Hickory Smoked.
This is actually the brand that we seem to eat the most at the Baird household, usually you can get it on sale at one of the grocery stores or at least for a pretty decent everyday price.
This standard 16oz. package yielded 14 good slices. There was a 15th, but it was so paper thin that I just chucked it.
Color was real good, a little fatty but I still thought it had a fairly good meat/fat ratio.
Bacon was split onto two foil lined sheets and each cooked separately at 425 for 12 minutes.
Look at that!! Really held it’s shape well, not a lot of shrinkage. There was a really nice aroma to the house as these things baked up.
They cooked really even (except for that one little spot on the top of slice 6) and had a nice crunch with the first bite, but didn’t crumble. There wasn’t that much of a smoked taste to the meat and was actually a little sweet.
This held up real well as my breakfast side and on a sandwich later. Smithfield, you made a good little bacon!
I give you…Eight PIGGIES EATING BACON! Next time you are on sale, you’ll be in my cart!

So some inspiring young lads across the pond had an idea…
How can we get an entire English breakfast into a martini glass made of bacon?
The answer…behold the MEATINI
See how they came up with this mad creation at http://www.rathergood.com/meatini, if you DARE!!!Â Bwahahahahahahahahahaha!
Thanks to Rebecca F., TDB’s Bacon and Cultural Studies Correspondent for the heads up (SHOUT OUT).
That is all.Â Happy Monday everyone.

“Just one slice left. Boo Hoo”
The optimist would realize he just had a great pancake breakfast, which included three of four slices of crispy goodness already, and now can end his meal with the delicious taste of bacon!
I am that optimist! KA-POW!
Make it a great day.

I said I was going to have it for breakfast…and I did…and I liked it!!!
This is the bacon cinnamon roll!
It’s a tough recipe…here are the ingredients:
Now, I made a mistake…it seems that the mini rolls are only stamped to look like they were rolled. So I had to bust out a knife to cut into a strip:
Once pulled out on the counter, you just place a strip of bacon along the dough.
I was glad we still had a pound of the center cut in the freezer…given the size of these rolls, it was a perfect sized slice. Also, it’s fresh seal packaging allowed me to just pull a couple slices out and just snap the case shut.
So here we are, all rolled up and ready for the oven. Since this was the first time making these, I only put two together…In the event that things went south, I didn’t want to ruin a whole pan of these and deny Better Half her breakfast.
After 12 minutes at 400 degrees…here we are…just add icing and…
There you go!
Now I typically don’t like “wrapping” bacon around food. I love the taste, but the bacon never really cooks and I just don’t dig on soggy bacon.
These cooked up great! The bacon was still soft inside the roll, but it wasn’t stringy. When I took a bite straight in, I didn’t pull any of the bacon with me. The bacon fat melting through the bun gave it a real good taste and a nice sort of glaze formed on the bottom of the roll. It was a GREAT blend of sweet and savory!
Next time…use the larger cinnamon rolls that are ACTUALLY rolled. I also think I might hit the bacon in the stove for about 7 minutes and then roll it into the dough…so I get more of a cooked piece of bacon. Some experimenting to go…but I got to tell you, it already was pretty close to perfection!
