Fifty Shades of Bacon

Okay, this is cracking me the heck up!

It's an "erotic recipe book"!

Honestly, it doesn't seem to be very NSFW, it just has some kinda racy titles for the sections. Just browsing through it, I think I might pick it up. The recipes look pretty good!


Here is the description:
Fifty Shades of Bacon is an erotic cookbook that delves into the full bacon experience. Ok, it is not erotic at all, but it is a tongue in cheek delivery of some great bacon recipes. Everything from basic bacon bits to bacon ice cream to bacon au gratin and alfredo. If you are into bacon, want an interesting conversation piece or are looking for a present for the meat lover in your life, this title is for you. This is a softcover book that has 62 pages and 50 recipes.

OMG. This exists!

I need to try this gadget SOON! My last attempt at bacon bowls was not-so-good and maybe these will help!

April Fool's!

What were the bacon Fools this year?
I found two and they were both released at least a few days before the first, so the suspension of disbelief had a chance to build.



From J&D's site - The bacon condom!
Good old J&D made a bacon condom this year!
I love those guys! And I would probably buy this, just to leave them laying around.

Scope came up with bacon flavored mouthwash!
This, on the other hand... nah... pass.






Already waiting for next year!

BACON BACON!

From the Bacon Bacon Facebook page
So, the latest American obsession is with the food truck.

Couple that with another great American obsession, and you get BACON BACON!

It's a food truck specializing in bacon!

Unfortunately, if you're not in the San Francisco area, you probably won't get to see this gem.  Unless, of course, the Bacon Bacon truck idea spreads like wildfire and they franchise out all over the country and then everyone can just walk up and... oops, getting a bit excited there.

Inside Scoop SF has a nice article about Bacon Bacon:
So what’s on the menu? Bacon, obviously. There will be six sandwiches, all made with bacon (though some can be made without): A pork belly and fried egg one, a grilled cheese number, the L.G.B.T (lettuce, goat cheese, bacon and tomato), pork meatball banh mi (featuring bacon in place of the traditional pate), broccoli rabe with bacon, and the requisite “Bacon Bacon Burger.”

On the side, there will be french fries, fried with rosemary and sage, salted and topped with parmesan; there is the option to get them “dirty” with fried pork belly trimmings. Angelus has also made a deal with San Mateo-based Devil’s Canyon to serve their root beer on tap.

Mmmmmm... sounds delicious!

Want to connect directly with Bacon Bacon and see when they'll be rolling down the hills of San Fran?  Go to their Facebook page and give them a like! I'm going to like them RIGHT NOW!

Yep.  Next time I'm in the bay area, I'll be looking for them.

Bacon can be healthy.  Kinda.  Sorta.
Don't these just look amazing?

In my quest for new bacon recipes, I stumbled upon How Sweet It Is, a blog by the lovely Jessica about food.  Jessica loves bacon too, so it's no surprise that she posted this delicious looking recipe!



Green Bean Bacon Bundles
makes about 10-12 bundles
1 pound fresh green beans
10-12 slices of thick-cut bacon
2 tablespoons butter
1 tablespoon brown sugar
2 cloves of garlic, minced
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper

You'll have to go visit her site for the rest of the recipe!

While you're there, check out the other recipes in her bacon tag as well.  I'll definitely be visiting her often.

Which Bacon?

You know, I figured I'd better pimp my go-to brand of bacon.

While I'm always looking for new and awesome types of bacon, I do have one brand that I will buy for my day-to-day needs.  That brand is Wright Brand Bacon.

I just find Wright to be a consistently good bacon. It's perfectly smoked and has a bit thicker cut without being too thick. It bakes, wraps, weaves and grills beautifully.

Yeah, it is a bit more expensive. I think my supermarket sells it for around $9 for the 24oz size. "Regular" bacon is around $5 for a pound, so it's really not that bad. And... the package is resealable!

And it's worth it. Trust your Bacon Goddess.

Anyway, there's the pimpage for my brand of choice!

Go give their wonderfully fun website a visit or like them on the Facebook, they're very interactive with their fans!
