Makin’ Bacon – Plumrose…

http://thedailybacon.com/?p=859For this week’s “Makin’ Bacon”, we’re cookin’ up Plumrose Premium Bacon. 

Packaged meat – oh how you deceive…

Walk through a meat department, see this on sale, pick up the package and from this view, that’s not bad lookin’ bacon.  Then you open it…

What a train wreak!!  The strips were sooooooo thin and broke in so many places that it was hard just getting them in the pans.  Sure there looks like a decent amount of meat | fat ratio, but when you can look through a strip, that’s not good.

REVIEW – Bacon Salt…

So finally I tried that little shaker of faux flavor…Bacon Salt.

salt

Bacon Salt was developed by two guys who had a dream to make everything taste like bacon.  From humble beginnings, they have turned their product and company into a million dollar business with multiple flavors of Bacon Salt, Baconnaise and recently Bacon Lip Balm.  It’s a true American entrepreneurial success story and I for one applaud them!

So anywho, back to the review… [Read more →]

The Bacon Song…

I tried to come up with something witty for a headline but sometimes you can out smart yourself. You just need to let the post stand for itself, especially when you have content like this. I give you “The Bacon Song“:

Yup, I know what you are thinkin’ and that’s what I thought too…

Hope everyone had a great weekend! Glad to be back!

Put Your Head on my Bacon…

Whisper in my ear, babeeee. 
Tell me what I want to hear, darrrlin.
Put your head on my baaaaaaaacon!

With apologies to Paul Anka (skewing old I know), allow me to present the “Shapin’ Bacon” Plush Toy & Pillow.

baconplushtoy1

With “patented crinkle technology”, this is one of the better plush bacons I have ever seen. 

Handmade by the find folk(s) at Sweet Meats, just $17.99 and they are collector’s items as only 1,000 will be made.

You know you want one…

Thankin’ for Bacon – Appetizer #1…

There is nothing easier, and in my humble opinion more tastier, than a simple bacon wrapped water chestnut.  I have great memories of attending holiday parties at the home of Sam and Marie Cole.  Sam was a wonderful mentor and father figure to me.  His wife Marie the most sweetest, caring woman I knew (aside from my dear mother of course).

With that as a backdrop, I couldn’t think of anything more fitting to feature as our first appetizer in this Thankin’ for Bacon weekend…

Bacon Wrapped Water Chestnuts

Ingredients

  • 1 pound sliced bacon
  • 2 (8 ounce) cans whole water chestnuts, drained
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup chili sauce

Directions

  1. Cut bacon strips in half. In a skillet over medium heat, cook bacon until almost crisp; drain. Wrap each bacon piece around a water chestnut and secure with a toothpick. Place in an ungreased 13-in. x 9-in. x 2-in. baking dish.
  2. Combine the brown sugar, mayonnaise and chili sauce; pour over water chestnuts. Bake, uncovered, at 350 degrees F for 30 minutes or until hot and bubbly.

Enjoy!

Tomorrow, appetizer #2…
