I’ve been thinking about starting this new segment for a while as I have been making my way from one pub/bar to another each week throughout downtown Detroit. But since my “travels” have mostly been to find great hamburgers, I decided it was too far “out of scope” for the blog. But then I had lunch Wednesday…
BLT with heirloom tomatoes, mixed greens, think cut bacon and herb mayo on artisan butter toasted Italian bread from Avalon Bakery…
Paired it with some gazpacho. Damn good!
Plus, a surprising great pickle from Perkins Pickles (locally made).
So, a new segment is officially born!

Today we are going to start a NEW feature here at TDB entitled “Yesterday’s News!“ While I am usually on the cutting edge of bacon news and information, my recent work schedule has caused me to fall behind a bit…take this little piece of news:
Yup, Jack in the Box (of which there are NO restaurants in southeastern Michigan) jumped (albeit late) on the bacon bandwagon.
We featured bacon milkshakes two and a half years ago…
Denny’s did it last year…
So welcome to the club JitB.
Oh, they also have a special, BLT cheeseburger. This “new” burger has cheese, bacon, lettuce, tomato and mayo. Wow, way to innovate!
There you go! Want to find out more, then go to their MarryBacon.com microsite.
And this just in, Kim Jong-Il is still dead.

So yesterday while on the road, the family decided to stop and get breakfast at Denny’s. I am and will remain a big fan of the “make your own slam”.
Anywho, we walk in and I’m greeted by this:
WHAT??? How did I not know about this “Baconalia“? I missed it, all the FoTDB* missed it, no Google alerts, no Facebook posts…WTH!!!
This “Celebration of Bacon” includes seven new menu items, featured here (a little blurry) on this table card: [Read more →]

For the newbies, this feature started with me comparing bacon and bacon burgers at various fast food chains surrounding my home and former office. We were on a roll there for a while but then I ran out of fast food places and “Fast Food Friday’s“ went dormant.
Well bust out the tray liners cause I’m back baby! But this week, we’re checking out a salad. A Salad??? Let me explain…
In the spirit of full exposure - a few weeks back I get this mysterious email saying that this person had a $10 Wendy’s gift card for me if I was willing to try one of their new premium salads. Not knowing if this was a scam or not I sent the email back. Fast forward a week and BAM, gift card in the mail! SWEET!!!
Being a man of my word, I took my card and went to get a salad…

Remember me mentioning all the bacon news coming out of Illinois recently? We’ll here part of a story that literally stopped me in my tracks.
No photo of this and believe me I tried to find one.
From the “Herald & Review“ in Decatur:
Some festivalgoers came a long way for a taste of Central Illinois. Betsy Perry and her twin brother Joe traveled to Celebration from Minneapolis and thought the country-style BLT with its battered bacon strips was a revelation.
“It’s the best BLT I’ve ever had,” Betsy Perry said. “I’ve never had battered bacon before, but I’m going to make this at home, yes sir. I could serve this bacon as a meal, it’s so good.”
Joe Perry had already finished his BLT.
“It’s great, I just loved it,” he said. “I thought it was one of the most unique foods I’ve ever had, and the homegrown tomatoes and lettuce set off the bacon. Great food to have at a festival. I am loving this Celebration.”
The event concludes today. Among the entertainment acts scheduled to perform are The Charlie Daniels Band, The Georgia Satellites, Exposé, Francesca Battistelli, Tone Loc and Young MC. Today’s hours are 11 a.m. to 9:30 p.m.
I know right…look at that concert lineup. That screams Heart of Illinois.
Oh, there was also that mention about a COUNTRY STYLE, BATTERED BACON BLT! WHAT?!?! That’s just a great idea who’s time has come.
Keep it coming Illinois! Keep it coming!

There is absolutely NOTHING healthy or “redeeming” about this particular recipe. I mean it’s a recipe from Paula Dean…
But damn does it sound yummy! It also meets my criteria of quick and easy. SHOUT OUT to Amanda for bringing it to my attention.
Enjoy all! [Read more →]

Over that last 10 years or so, as I was watching basic cable programming, I would see a commercial for a joint called Sonic? Why the heck was this burger joint advertising with a national cable buy when they had NO stores in a whole bunch of states? The answer, they were softening us up!
Michigan got it’s first Sonic just over a year ago in St. Clair Shores and this week, they opened up a new location in the heart of Oakland County. It, like the first store opening, made the paper and I believe a TV outlet or two.
What’s so special about Sonic? I think it’s the novelty of the drive-in concept. Some may say it’s their 168,894 drink flavor combinations. Other may just be big fans of tots (more on that later). Whatever it is, it has developed a following.
This was my first trip ever to Sonic and probably won’t be my last.
Enough jibber-jabbin’, let’s get down to bacon business. For the “Fast Food Friday” test, we ordered both the bacon cheeseburger AND the BLT. Let’s start with the BLT…
