Bacon Pic of the Day – Excuse Me Miss…

but I thought I ordered a SIDE of bacon?

Really? REALLY??  These barely fit on the saucer like plate that Lil’ Baird might eat off of.

It is too bad you blew it with the pork because your pancakes were tatsy.  That said, as Paula Abdul once masterfully sung…”there  too many fish in the sea”, so I’m not coming back here anymore restaurant that will go unnamed.

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!

Makin’ Breakfast this Weekend?

Why not give this a shot!  From Vosges Chocolate, the maker’s of the Mo’s Bacon Bar:


First, thanks to Rebecca F. (SHOUT OUT!), TDB’s Bacon and Cultural Studies Correspondent, for the heads up about this!

Here’s their description:

The newest member of the bacon + chocolate family combines the Mo’s Bacon Barwith fluffy flapjacks. These buttermilk pancakes are spotted with chunks of our most popular Exotic Candy Bar, which combines applewood smoked bacon and Alder sea salt with deep milk chocolate. Treat your family or weekend guests to these unbelievable pancakes for breakfast OR dinner! Mo’s Bacon Chocolate Chip Pancake Mix makes a perfect hostess gift for a weekend retreat.

How does your mouth not water???

Each batch of the Mo’s Bacon Chocolate Chip Pancake Mix will yield approximately 8, 5-inch pancakes. There are two batches per container. The mix contains all the dry ingredients and Mo’s Bacon Bar chips. Below is a list of other ingredients you will need to make the pancakes. You can either drop the chips into the pancakes while they are cooking or try placing the chocolate between a warm stack of cooked pancakes.

1 cup pancake mix (enclosed)
1/2 packet of Mo’s Bacon Bar chocolate chips (enclosed)
1 large egg
1 1/2 cups buttermilk
2 Tbsp unsalted butter, melted
Bacon fat, lard or butter at room temperature to grease the griddle
Grade A Fancy Maple syrup

I knew I saved that bacon fat for something ;-)

I am buying some TODAY!!  $12.oo and available at the Vosges website.

WTH Denny’s…Baconalia?!?

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”.

This “Celebration of Bacon” includes seven new menu items, featured here (a little blurry) on this table card: [Read more →]

On the First Day of Comic Con…How Nerds Fry Bacon

San Diego Comic Con started today.  I may not be there in person, but I am in spirit.  So all weekend I will be posting some great new nerdy things, like this for example…

Brand New over at StarWarsShop.com, 100% polyester and machine washable.

Goes great with that Space Slug oven mitt you’ve been eyeing.

And after you make that bacon, how about some Vader or Yoda pancakes?
