The Bacon Sandwich Equation…

So that’s it…

From “The Independent” out of Great Britain…

Experts at Leeds University spent more than 1,000 hours tasting 700 variations of the bacon sandwich to cook up a formula for the perfect butty. The secret lies in how crispy and crunchy your rashers are. Their recipe for success is N = C + {fb (cm) . fb (tc)} + fb (Ts) + fc . ta where N = force in Newtons required to break the cooked bacon, fb = function of the bacon type, fc = function of the condiment/filling effect, Ts = serving temperature, tc = cooking time, ta = time or duration of application of condiment or filling, cm = cooking method and C = Newtons required to break uncooked bacon.

Let me restate that for you:

N = C + {fb (cm) . fb (tc)} + fb (Ts) + fc . ta

When you put it like that, it ALL makes sense! ;-)

Better with Bacon – Baked Bacon!

What is better THAN bacon!  Today’s simple, quick bacon recipe is for….

Baked bacon! ;-)


  • Bacon


  1. Place a long sheet of foil on a baking sheet
  2. Place the bacon on top of the sheet about an inch apart from each slice
  3. Put the sheet in the oven and turn it to 425 degrees and bake for 15-16 minutes
  4. Remove and place the bacon on several sheets of paper towels to soak up the grease and then serve


Thanks to A Zesty Bite for the chuckle tonight!

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!

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.
