Everything's Better with Bacon

Postby madsglen » Thu Apr 16, 2009 12:50 am

No, not Kevin Bacon (well, maybe...). I tend to think that bacon should be one of the four major food groups but these guys are on the right track. It's a local company for us so I'm not sure if y'all have 'Bacon Salt' in stores in your area but it's a hit here in Seattle. And last year I sent it as Christmas gifts to a few buds from work in different parts of the country.

Haven't tried Baconnaise yet, but despite what Jon Stewart says someone I know has tried it and said it was good (in moderation).

And check out the enties for a potential new product ('Bacon Lube') on their blog: http://www.baconsaltblog.com/ Not sure if it's still just a gag but the thought is intriguing!

Pigs are indeed tasty.

As long as the bacon is crispy and well cooked, I love it.

I'll look around for Bacon salt. It usually takes about 5 years for things to appear in Canada, though. We're like the forgotten cousin.

We do only turkey bacon here at home. . . I don't eat ordinary bacon in a restaurant or anywhere else I can't watch it be prepared. . . .

Canadian bacon rocks, however. As did Kevin Bacon in "Wild Things," but I digress. . . .

Anyone ever tried pancetta? It's a type of bacon. A snob told me about it. :P

Spiced Bacon Twists

These spiced bacon twists are amazing. If you love bacon then you will love the cool new take of this recipe. It’s a combination of brown sugar, mustard powder, cinnamon, nutmeg and cayenne pepper.


Ingredients -

1 Cup Packed Light Brown Sugar
2 Tablespoons Dry Mustard Powder
1/2 Teaspoon Ground Cinnamon
1/2 Teaspoon Ground Nutmeg
1/4 Teaspoon Cayenne Pepper
1 Pound Sliced Bacon


Preparation:

1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

2. With a baking sheet that has sides to catch the grease, line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and place a wire rack over the foil.

3. Stir together the brown sugar, mustard powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, and cayenne pepper in a small bowl.

4. Press each slice of bacon into the mixture until well coated.

5. Twist each strip a few times and place on the prepared baking rack.

6. Bake until the bacon is browned and crisp enough to hold its shape which takes about 30 minutes.

I saw their maple bacon sundae in an ad, elsewhere on here. It looked strangely intriguing. :twisted:

I guess I'm the exception here. Just the smell of Bacon triggers my gag reflex, so technically it could make me throw up.

Well I finally noticed we have baconaisse in the stores....2 and a half years after you started this topic. I only exaggerated by half. I said it would take 5 years to appear. :P

Well, I considered it but no. I keep a bottle of mustard in the fridge, but I hardly ever need mayonaisse so I couldn't justify buying it. It looked tasty, though.

My favorite Christmas present this year? Bacon Jam!!!! Amazing. Not to toot our horn too loudly, but Seattle has some of the best foodies and chefs anywhere :wink:

(And for our Canadian viewers.... there's even a link in the site for people who insist on paying for stuff with Loonies. And a fair selection of shops in Ontario which carry the stuff, too.)
