.. of making 5 lbs of bacon. I didn’t realize I would wanna eat it all pretty much immediately, but here I am, racking my brain for more bacon heavy recipes. Last night I made carbonara, which turned out pretty fabulously, if I do say so myself. In retrospect, the bacon could have perhaps been smokier, but.. then I have to get a smoker type device. There is no room for a smoker on my patio. I assure you.
Having cured my own bacon and salmon, made my own cheese, made my own pasta, made my own butter, made my own tortillas, etc. I am almost at a loss as to what I can conquer next. Any suggestions, keeping in mind that I hate baking with a deep, fiery passion?
I think maybe next I will make some homemade scrapple, followed by potato chips. The whole kettle frying thing seems interesting. But what then? Jam? Pickling? I dunno. Ideas, please!
PS – If anyone mentions meat jelly, they’re banned from life. 😀
I too have found some serious side effects that were completely unexpected…check it out, but be warned…it is pretty nasty;
LOL. I really appreciate the ‘oh so classy’ tenor of your above mentioned post. 🙂
I must say, quickly browsing through your site, that it is totally relevant to my interests! Can’t wait to read more, but maybe not about your bodily functions….
haha. I am glad you liked the site. Don’t worry though, I don’t have any more plans that involve “ranting” about more farts…well not yet at least…
Only time will tell.
I hope that you actually meant “banned from life” and not “banned for life.” Much better the first way.
Oh, I totally meant the from. 🙂
Have you tried a bacon spread? Basically, it’s bacon within an onion compote with coffee (I use tea). Recipes available if you search for “bacon jam” or “bacon spread”. Made it a couple of times with great results and feedback. Good luck. Eat well.
HMM. I never would have thought of that. I like it! Thanks!!
Ooo, yum! I forgot to check your experiment! Yum 🙂 how about caramelised bacon with banana pancakes, mmm, you need a lazy weekend for that one! (me too!)
Ooooh. Bacon and banana pancakes. Sweet! Saturday breakfast, here I come! Thanks for the suggestion!
I just love it! Really, in my house, we love all things bacon. My littlest one (who’s a year and a half) walks up to the stove,whenever I’m standing there cooking, and requests, Bacon, puwease! Yeah, we start ’em young.
Smart kid. 😀 I’m really so glad I made the bacon. It’s been both life and meal enhancing. 🙂
Make your own beer! =D~
I don’t feel like I have the space for that, but if I can find somewhere to let the stuff ferment that my cats can’t get to, then I’d be set!
Hi! I nominated you for the Liebster Award because you rock! 🙂 You can view the post here: http://barefootbeing.com/2012/04/04/the-liebster/
Have you made your own yogurt?
Not yet. I have the cultures for it, but I haven’t followed though on it yet. I kinda forgot I had them. This weekend!
