Bacon Boutique – B’Ham and Eggs…

Check out this real cute shirt from Toast in Birmingham (MI).  I was there for a breakfast meeting this morning, saw this and was ready to drop some cash so Lil’ Baird could rock the bacon – but they didn’t have toddler sizes.

Birmingham- B’ham…get it?  But if it’s supposed to be “ham and eggs” then why the bacon?  I’m not complaining and really, what other meat could you put on the plate to give you that great breakfast smile (sorry, sausage just doesn’t cut it in).  Just saying…

Yes, this is the stuff I think about! Welcome to my mind ;-)

BTW – here was this morning’s side dish…

Grease is the Word…


It’s got groove it’s got meaning
Grease is the time, is the place is the motion
Grease is the way we are feeling…

Yes sir, over the last few days I have been reading a lot about bacon grease.  It was used to infuse an Old Fashioned, there was an ode to it’s virtue, I’ve seen it in several new recipes that I am considering for posting and EVEN for use in making bacon soap (more on that tomorrow).

That got me thinking…and that’s never a good thing…how should I go about trying to make some of these things while not keeping an old can of grease in the house (which would surely gross out and disturb Better Half)?

WTF???? Guys Cover Buddy in Bacon…


Some “wacky” French Canadians spent $37 on bacon and decided to then make their friend a bacon mummy.

Seriously, don’t do this at home people…even I , your friendly neighborhood Bacon Boy, has a case of the skeevies watching this.  Heck, I wash my hands at least 5-6 times when I make just one package of bacon.  Yes this may gross me out BUT they do cover their buddy in bacon…so you know I got to show it!

Better with Bacon – Bacon Cheese Potatoes…

Three of my favorite things, all thrown into a crockpot.  Walk away for a view hours and BAM, yummy goodness!

Bacon Cheese Potatoes

  • 2 medium onions, thinly sliced
  • 4 medium potatoes, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 pound cheddar cheese, thinly sliced
  • salt and pepper
  • butter
  • Green Onions (optional)
  1. Line crockpot with foil, leaving enough to cover the potatoes when finished.
  2. Layer half each of the bacon, onions, potatoes and cheese in crockpot. Season to taste and dot with butter.
  3. Repeat layers of bacon, onions, potatoes and cheese. Dot with butter.
  4. Cover with remaining foil.
  5. Cover and cook on low for 10-12 hours.

thanks to Moms with Crockpots for this one!

Bacon Pic of the Day – Here Piggy…

Over Memorial Day weekend Better, Lil’ and I made an up and down trip to Sault Sainte Maire to see my oldest nephew Matt graduate from high school.  After the six hour trip, we arrive at my sisters house and as soon as I walk in I was approached by my other nephew Hunter, not with a hug or “Hi Uncle Mike!” but with a stack of papers.  The top sheet read “$1.00 for one picture, $2.00 for custom drawing.”  Well, I had to admire his entrepreneurial spirit so I started flipping through the pages until one caught my eye…

Well done Hunter!  You’ve hit your Uncle Mike’s sweet spot.  Here’s your dollar.

More from Hunter tomorrow.
