Last week on the Tonight Show Jay Leno said a few jokes about J & D Foods new product baconlube. Strangely Justin and Dave never asked us to review this yet. I guess there are afraid of what Sean and I would do with it on Bacon LIVE.
Kim, who works for pork company in Ontario, sent Sean and I this interesting photo. She calls in Bacon Rock and its was taken at the Royal Ontario Museum.
“Who would have thought a rock could look this tasty?” said Kim.
I will have to agree, it is a yummy looking rock.
Looking at it makes think that there is a monster that wonders the universe eating planets. And this is his prized food, rock bacon. One day we may have to come to the hard choice of either giving the monster our rock bacon as a pace offering or to protect it with our lives. I hope that day never comes.

Sean got so excited that he wanted to take a road trip and I can’t blame him. Hearing about places like Hopdoddy and Frank any bacon lover would be willing to do anything to get there.

8 ounces slab bacon, sliced 1/4-inch thick (about 6 to 8 slices)
1/4 cup honey
1 teaspoon five-spice powder
2 tablespoons water
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon five-spice powder
1 large Fuji apple, cored and thinly sliced
3 tablespoons white wine vinegar
2 tablespoons finely chopped shallots
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
1/4 teaspoon black pepper, coarsely ground
8 cups assorted micro-greens or European mixed salad greens
1 tablespoon white wine vinegar
6 large eggs
five-spice powder (for garnish)
For the Bacon: Preheat oven to 400°F. Arrange bacon slices in single layer on foil-lined 15x10x1-inch baking pan. Bake 15 minutes or until bacon edges begin to curl. Remove pan from oven. Carefully drain drippings into glass measuring cup. Set aside. Microwave honey and five spice in small microwavable bowl on HIGH 30 seconds, stirring after 15 seconds. Brush bacon with honey mixture. Bake 10 minutes longer or until bacon is browned and crisp. Carefully drain any additional drippings into measuring cup. Cool bacon on wire rack. Break into bite-size pieces. Set aside.
For the Salad: Mix water, lemon juice and five spice in small bowl. Add apple slices; toss to coat well. Set aside. Mix 1/4 cup of the warm bacon drippings, vinegar, shallots, mustard and pepper in small bowl with wire whisk until well blended. Set aside.
For the Poached Eggs: Fill large deep saucepan with 2 inches of water. Add 1 tablespoon vinegar. Bring to boil. Reduce heat to medium. Break 1 egg into small dish. Carefully slide egg into simmering water (bubbles should begin to break the surface of the water). Repeat with remaining eggs. Poach eggs 3 to 5 minutes or until whites are completely set and yolks begin to thicken. Carefully remove eggs with slotted spoon. Drain on paper towels.
To serve, divide greens among 6 plates. Top each with a poached egg. Sprinkle egg with additional five spice. Arrange drained apple slices and bacon around salad. Warm dressing if needed and drizzle over salads. Serve immediately.
