Bacon Explosion – No Joke!

I love when one idea snowballs into several others, and the bacon mat has been a major springboard for lots of bacon creations over the past few months. Of course there was the bacon cheese roll, followed by the bacon, chicken, cheese roll. And now this: the Bacon...

Bacon Wrapped Elvish Cookies

I’m loving bloggers this week. Yesterday, of course, was a heart-attack recipe from SOT, and today I have to draw your attention once again to the Ridiculous Food Society of Upstate New York. Mr. Dave constantly cracks me up, and last weekend he did it again. He...

Bacon-Wrapped Eggs with Polenta

By far the most popular post we’ve ever done was Bacon Wrapped Eggs. I don’t know what it was about that recipe that made everyone’s mouth water so, but we got lots of great feedback and alternative recipe suggestions. Since this seems to be what the...

Potato Pancakes with Cheese and Bacon

When I was a kid, I tried countless times to make potato pancakes with leftover mashed potatoes. My problem was that there was no internet or Food Network when I was a kid, and I never found a real recipe. So, I would just shape a handful of mashed potatoes into a...

Pappardelle with Arugula and Bacon

Earlier this year, I decided to stop eating wheat products. Which, although it has made me feel 10 times more healthy, was at first an incredibly difficult transition because I love carbs. Maybe more than I love bacon. And topping my list of carbohydrated favorites?...

Amazin’ Cajun Bacon

Even before bacon exploded in bits all over the internets, I have to admit I considered myself somewhat of a bacon connoisseur.  However, my proof of expertise back then was that I had tried all the local grocery store brand bacons and concluded that the Vons brand...

Jalapeno Bacon

As I mentioned during the Bacon Day posts, Rocco from BaconFreak gave us A LOT of bacon. We had already purchased many pounds of bacon ourselves, so were not able to use it all on Bacon Day. Fortunately, this means that we get to sample it at our leisure and tell you...

Bacon Cinnamon Rolls

OMG! These look so good, and so easy to make. The brilliant Mr. B over at Bacon Today came up with this crafty idea, and I cannot wait to try it. Basically, you buy a tube of pre-made cinnamon rolls, unroll each one, place a strip of bacon inside and roll it back up....

Bacon & Sage Cornbread

The October ’08 edition of Bon Appetit magazine has this wonderful looking recipe for Cornish game hens with a corn bread and sage stuffing. Coincidentally, my husband had the urge to buy Cornish game hens over the weekend, so I’ll get to try this recipe...
