A celebration of bacon
Posted by Lissa on January 23, 2009
During Iron Chef last night, one of the judges stated his firm belief that “Bacon is nature’s perfect food; even vegans know that.” According to Iowahawk, even PIGS know that: “Pigs eat other pigs! And can you blame them? Even pigs themselves know that pigs are delicious!” And since it’s Friday (hooray!!), what better way to celebrate the coming weekend than with a celebration of the perfect food?
First comes Bruce’s post from yesterday, featuring a peanut-butter-and-bacon sandwich. He claims a Guinness is the perfect drink with which to wash this down, but I’d probably opt for bacon-flavored bourbon, myself.
Next up comes Breda’s famous pig candy. I’ve actually made this one, so I can attest personally to its deliciousness. (Note to self — less cayenne next time!) Breda also gets a nod for bacon apple pie! (Psst, Breda — how can you have 24 blog-posts tagged “beer” and not have a “bacon” tag??)
If Bruce’s sandwich doesn’t do it for you, what’s better than a nice burger topped with bacon? Glad you asked! Why, that would be the burger MADE OF ground bacon. Served with a side of heart attack.
If you’d like something fancier, you could always try the fru-fru version of a BLT:
Or you could go back to simple, delicious basics:
By way of BorePatch, I’d like to officially add this to my Christmas wish list:
Because last but certainly not least, there’s nothing like a savory breakfast of eggs-over-easy, buttered toast and bacon. (And if you don’t dip the bacon in the egg yolk, I just can’t help you.)
Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m off to find a pig.
What’s your favorite way to eat bacon?
