Bacon Lamp

I am completely blown away by this bacon art. The amazing Mingarro Brothers of Barcelona founded a multi-disciplinary studio, Brosmind, and have won a whole slew of awards for their work. Their art is fun and whimsical, and includes everything from illustration to functional art. I seriously suggest you spend some time wandering their site and checking out their latest projects. And you should go back again and again to the link about the Mingarro brothers. The images of them change every time. These guys are some wacky Spaniards and I want to be their friend. I wonder how...

Bacon-Wrapped Eggs

When my husband became enamored of Eggs Benedict, I learned to make them at home. The hollandaise is time-consuming, but not as difficult as I had imagined. The egg poaching, however, I never quite mastered. Instead, I bought these handy egg frying rings from Williams Sonoma. They make the perfect size and shape of egg for an English muffin. And although I haven’t quite poached eggs in them, with a lid and a little water, they’re more steamed than fried. Anyhow, the other day I wanted bacon & eggs. I didn’t want the eggs scrambled, but I wanted the...

OMG: Bacon Overload

Some of you may remember an image used on this site: an ultimate bacon sandwich made of 22 slices of fried bacon and two slices of white bread. Period. Nothing more. Well that image was from years ago. The maniacal wizard behind that sandwich has moved on to bigger and…I won’t say better…more bacony things. Like Bacon Cereal. And I must say, this particular brainstorm is too much, even for me. This recipe calls for a pound of finely chopped bacon (the cereal), a bunch of blue cheese dressing (the milk), topped with bacon bits (the sugar). I just...

Krispy Kreme Bacon Cheeseburger

What gives with the cheeseburgers lately? Everywhere I turn, bacon cheeseburgers are in my face, tempting me to be bad. Very bad. The latest rage seems to be the Krispy Kreme Bacon Cheeseburger, the basics on a glazed donut instead of a bun. It’s more straightforward than the Paula Deen version (no egg involved) but has the added pizazz of America’s favorite donut company. Apparently it’s named the “Luther Burger” after R&B singer Luther Vandross, and there’s much buzz about Mr. Vandross being the possible inventor. No hard evidence, of course, but I’m sure he’s very proud. This new...

So far, so good

Okay, so if you read yesterday’s post, you’ll know I made bacon-infused bourbon over the weekend. And when my bacon bourbon was complete, I wanted to get some expert opinions on its flavor. Where better to go than to the local teamsters? Well okay, not actual teamsters, but the union stagecrew at the local performing arts theatre more than did the trick. I took my first sip (neat) with Tony and J.O., each of whom immediately gave rave reviews, claiming that they could indeed taste the bacony smoke, and that it took the slightly sweet edge off the bourbon....

Home-style Bacon Bourbon

So I finally did it. I made bacon bourbon over the weekend to share with some friends, and I thought I’d give you the step-by-step account. First things first, introductions. Bacon, meet Bourbon. Bourbon, Bacon. Okay, pleasantries out of the way, I fried up a few slices. The recipes I’ve read have called for anywhere from 1 to 4 ounces of bacon grease. I went with about 2, although I didn’t actually measure so it could have been as much as 3. I used fresh, hot grease to warm up some grease i’d been saving in the fridge, and...

Chocolate Bacon Cheeseburger

How do I feel this morning? Outdone, that’s how. The amazing minds at Epic Nomz have created a burger so beautiful, so mouth-wateringly lovely to think about, I can hardly stand it. Once again, a bacon recipe that has me dreaming of dinner before I’ve even eaten breakfast. This burger is called the Brooklynite, and you can’t see the cheese because it’s INSIDE! Dang. The genius behind this burger, besides all the high-quality, fresh ingredients, is that the bacon is coated in chocolate. And when placed atop a warm burger, the chocolate begins to melt and becomes a more...
