Better with Bacon – Bacon & Bourbon Pie Crust…

Happy Thanksgiving to all of my 10′s of readers!  Much like Halloween week, I’m going to try to “theme” this week in recognition of that one day of year where we are encouraged to give thanks for all we have while eating ourselves into a coma.

Let’s begin with this tasty looking recipe…and just like last week it brings two of my favorites together!  From last week’s “LA Times”

Bacon Boutique – Elemental Bacon…

Along the same lines as this shirt comes this nice looking tee from the folks at Tanga

You better act quick, this could sell out at any time especially since it’s 1) cool and B) just $7.99 (not including S&H).  Want it?  CLICK HERE.

Thanks to FoTDB Seth (SHOUT OUT!) who bought this to my attention this morning and to his friend Amy (SHOUT OUT) for telling him to go and buy it!

Dad’s Love Bacon!

At least I know I do…and I know there are a few others out there as well.  Why not consider Archie McPhee when deciding on that Father’s Day gift for your special Dad in your life…

While we’ve featured the Bacon Collection before, it just seems appropriate to share this again (considering I just got my Archie McPhee email today with the subject line “Father’s Day Bacon”).

Twelve different bacony items for under $40?  You can’t be serious?

They are serious, and don’t call them Shirley.

Better with Bacon – Blazin’ Hot Bacon Dip…

Oh Paula Deen!  I know my boy Anthony Bourdain doesn’t think that highly of you, but I’ve got a little place in my (clogged) heart for you!

This is one of hers, courtesy of Smithfield (hence the shout of in the recipe):

Blazin’ Hot Bacon Dip


  • 1/2 lb. Smithfield bacon, cooked crisp and crumbled
  • 8 oz cream cheese
  • 1 (10 oz.) can of diced tomatoes with green chilies, drained
  • 2 limes, juiced
  • 1/2 chipotle pepper in adobo sauce, chopped
  • 1 bunch cilantro, roughly chopped
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Place all ingredients, except Smithfield bacon, in the bowl of a food processor and pulse a few times to combine. Do not process until completely smooth, keep slightly chunky. Pour mixture into a mixing bowl and fold in all but a tablespoon of bacon.
  2. Pour dip into a serving bowl and top with remaining tablespoon bacon. Serve with tortilla chips, crackers or vegetables.
