Breakfast Pizza

Per The Bacon Show’s suggestion, we tried their recipe #266, Bacon and Eggs Breakfast Pizza, for breakfast this morning. Using freshly made pizza dough from my favorite grocery store in Phoenix, AJ’s Fine Foods, along with eggs, Boar’s Head bacon and colby jack cheese, we whipped up a couple of […]

And I’ll have bacon for dessert, too!

Tonight I had the pleasure of dining at David Greggory, a Washington, DC restaurant that has taken bacon cuisine to the next level.   Every Wednesday night, David Greggory hosts an evening of “Pork and Pinot.” Chef Greggory Hill prepares a collection of small plates of pork prepared in a […]

BLT on a Stick

Today’s recipe on The Bacon Show is BLT on a Stick. At last year’s Iowa State Fair, I experienced a lot of things on a stick, but definitely no BLT. Someone needs to get on that! Attendance at the fair would almost certainly double in size!

A technical approach to cooking bacon

Bacon for vegetarians

The terms “vegetarian” and “bacon” seem like diametrical concepts, but apparently at some point along the way some formerly-bacon-loving vegetarians have found a way to bring these two worlds together.   A firm called Lightlife makes a product called Smart Bacon that is mostly made from soy.   And I […]

Bacon and bananas?

Sure, why not! Although all of the crushing and chopping seems a little unnecessary. And I’d probably leave the lettuce off myself. Banana and Bacon Sandwich 1 1/2 cup crushed bananas 1 apple 4 bacon slices Salt Lettuce Crush banana, chop crisped bacon and mince apple. Mix, add salt, spread […]

Bacon Corn Chowder

Free Range Bacon

It’s hard to imagine pigs as “free range” since the term invokes images of some animal roaming around a wide open field, and most pigs spend their days laying around in the mud. But I guess I shouldn’t be surprised that I randomly came across such a thing while searching […]
