francheezieFRANCHEEZIE!!! I bet you’re asking yourself what a francheezie is. Well if you guessed the most delicious food on the planet you are correct! This one is a little harder to make at home, but you can figure it out.

Here’s what you do.

Take a jumbo hot dog, cut it down the middle, fill it with american cheese (or whatever cheese you prefer on your hot dogs), then wrap that sucker with bacon and deep fry the hell out if it. Put on a hot dog bun with some ketchup and enjoy with your chocolate covered bacon. Mmmmmmm, so good.

Chocolate Covered Bacon

chocolate covered baconChocolate Covered Bacon!! BACON COVERED IN CHOCOLATE?!?!?!?! Yep, you heard me right, sounds delicious doesn’t it. If I could cover a pig in chocolate and take a bite out of it’s back… well I probably wouldn’t but it could be fun to cover a pig in chocolate and let it loose in a Curves gym.

What you need

1 bag (~12oz) of Semi-Sweet Chocolate
1 1lb of uncooked bacon
Cookie Sheet or Pan
Frying Pan
Double Boiler
Cooking tongs
Paper Towels

Here’s what to do!

1. Cook the bacon in the frying pan. If you don’t know how to cook bacon you obviously have never tasted the greatest food on the planet, I’m glad I could help you in this time of need.
2. Put a paper towel over the plate, put the cooked bacon on the plate/paper towel, put another paper towel over the bacon if you wish. You can press down to get some of the grease off, but if you do you might as well quit now and go get the sand out of your vagina.
3. Get that fancy double boiler and fill the base with water. If you don’t have a double boiler find a big pot and a little pot and fill the big one with water. Bring the water to a boil.
4. Start throwing chocolate into the pot that doesn’t have water (it should be sitting in the pot with water). And melt up your chocolate while stirring it with a spoon so that it doesn’t burn. Burnt chocolate is the worst.
5. Eat a piece of bacon and bask in the glory that is heaven.
6. Dip each piece of bacon into the chocolate and then place onto the cookie sheet, or whatever you want to use to cool them.
7. Cool the chocolaty bacon in the fridge for about 15 minutes.
8. Eat chocolate bacon
9. Follow next recipe for main course.

Bacon Popcorn

bacon popcornHave you ever had that urge to put bacon on absolutely everything you eat? Well I have and this recipe was a life saver on a lonely Wednesday night. Over at Nosheteria they have come up with a delicious way to add your favorite food, bacon, to delicious popcorn! And the kicker to the whole thing is that the popcorn is actually cooked in the bacon grease! How amazing does that sound.

So first thing’s first, fry up that bacon. Make sure it’s nice and crunchy and greasy.
Once that is done, remove the bacon strips and place them on a paper towel, dabbing them to get some of the grease off if you prefer.
Now pour the popcorn kernels into the pan full o’ bacon grease and put a lid over the kernels. You’ll start to hear the popcorn popping, wait until you feel like all the kernels have popped and remove the lid.
Pour the popcorn into a bowl
Cut up the bacon strips and sprinkle them over the popcorn and Enjoy.

Thanks to Nosheteria for the recipe/picture.

Cook Perfect Bacon in the Oven

cook perfect bacon

Growing up my mom would always cook our bacon on the stove in a pan, but upon discovering the oven method this past week I don’t think I’ll ever use the stove again. Whenever I cook bacon I always make a huge mess and end up getting burnt by splattering grease. It’s probably my own fault and I’m sure I can make some adjustments to make it easier, but now that I’ve discovered the oven cooking method I don’t need to.

It’s extremely simple and the best part is you don’t have to hover over the bacon as it cooks!

Preheat your oven to 375-degrees.
Line a baking pan with tin foil and make sure that you create a lip with the foil so that the grease cannot escape the foil.
Lay out your bacon on the tin foil and place in the oven.
I let mine cook for 25 minutes, but I like my bacon very crispy, if you don’t want it as crispy I would start checking it around 18-20 minutes.
Remove the bacon and place on a paper towel and cover with another one to soak up the grease

Remember that the bacon will appear a lot less crispy than it actually is when you first take it out of the oven. Once the grease is soaked up in the paper towels it will become extremely crispy and delicious. I really can’t believe that I’ve never used this method to cook bacon.

What other bacon cooking tips do you guys have, we’d love to hear them!

Luther Burger aka OMFG!

luther burgerSo if you haven’t heard of a Luther Burger you need to find one! I only know of one place that sells them and it’s the Gateway Grizzlies Baseball team in Sauget, IL. I’m sure there are other places that sell them, but since I’m in Illinois, that’s the only place I know of. Anyways, this is most definitely worse for you than the Francheezie, but tastes just as good if not better. If you couldn’t tell by the picture to the left, a Luther Burger is a 1/2 pound burger topped with cheese and BACON (of course), but the kicker is instead of a bun, replace the bread with 2 krispy kreme glazed donuts! That’s right, those delicious, horrible for you donuts make excellent hamburger buns apparently. Honestly I’ve never experienced the awesomeness that is the Luther Burger, but I can only imagine it makes you as happy as you were/will be when you have your first child… and then eat the child cause it tastes so delicious. Ok maybe a bad analogy there, but how could something like this not be heaven on earth. Oh and if you’re wondering where the name came from, apparently Luther Vandross either invented it or just loved them a ridiculous amount. He did have diabetes, so all that sugar could have been a problem. Anyways, eat up and enjoy! Let us know if you find this delicious burger anywhere near your town!

Bacon Breakfast Cookies

bacon breakfast cookiesI never have time for breakfast before I head in to work in the morning, but after seeing these things I may have to make a batch the night before. Over at Cookin’ in the ‘Cuse, they have a delicious recipe for breakfast cookies that contains bacon of course. The cookies resemble an oatmeal raisin cookie, but when you bite into them you are in for much more than just raisins!

1/2 lb. bacon
1/2 cup butter
3/4 cup sugar
1 egg
1 cup of flour
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
2 cups of multi-grain flakes or corn flakes
1/2 cup raisins

And this is how you make it according to “Cookin’ in the ‘Cuse”

“Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Cook bacon until very crisp, drain well and break into 1/2 inch pieces.  Beat together butter and sugar till light and fluffy.  Beat in egg.  Combine flour and baking soda; stir into butter mixture.  Stir in bacon, mult-grain flakes and raisins.

Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheet.  Space 2 inches apart.  Bake for 15-18 minutes.  Remove to rack to cool–about 2 minutes, then remove from rack. ”

These sound absolutely delicious and I’m getting hungry just thinking about them. If anyone out there has a chance to make these, feel free to leave your comments below and let us know what you think! And don’t forget to check out Cookin’ in the ‘Cuse for other great recipes and food talk!
