Oh the Horror!!

Last Friday I opened up the fridge and what did I see….horror1

AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!

(silent scream)

AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!

Yes, that is precooked, ready to eat bacon.  Oh my stars and garters!

Now Better Half meant well.  She was going to make some bacon ranch potato salad (one of my favorites) for our anniversary dinner and 1) didn’t know if we still had bacon and B) knew she didn’t have time to cook up a few slices just to make the salad.  So, she was at the store and thought – why not get this?

While it goes against my bacon lovin’ beliefs, we got the box, can’t take it back, so I best eat it!

Oh boy…

More to come…

The Bacon Tornado

the-bacon-tornado
Looking for a recipe for Super Bowl Sunday? Consider the Bacon Tornado, a close relation to the ever-popular Bacon Explosion. Paul Sidoriak’s Bacon Tornado is a whirlwind of bacony flavor that picks up porky goodness in its path. Thinly-pounded pork tenderloin gets rolled around a stuffing of bacon, Pepper Jack cheese, and sautéed onions. The pillow of pork is wrapped tightly in bacon and slowly roasted with smoke on the Big Green Egg until the bacon is crispy. After about 25 minutes, you should notice a line of hungry football fans forming. These make an excellent main course, or as appetizers when sliced. Be sure to make several if you’ve got a hungry crowd!

Paul Sidoriak is a longtime foodie who will try to cook just about anything outside, and on the grill. His website GrillingMontana.com showcases some of his culinary successes and failures, often from the grill. If he is not cooking on the Big Green Egg, you can probably find him fly-fishing near his home in Western Montana. He would be honored if you would follow him on Facebook and on Twitter @GrillingMontana.

1 8-ounce pork tenderloin medallion pounded to 1/4-inch thickness
1 teaspoon smoked paprika
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon black pepper
7 slices bacon
1/4 cup sweet onion
1/4 cup pepper jack cheese grated

1. Mix the four dry spices, and season both sides of flattened medallion. Dice three slices of bacon, cook in a nonstick skillet, remove, and let cool. DO NOT BURN. Reserve 2 tablespoons of bacon grease to sauté onions over low heat until translucent, and then allow to cool. Mix onions, bacon and Pepper Jack cheese in a bowl.

2. Lay remaining four slices of bacon side-by-side on a clean surface. Lay the pork medallion flat on top of the bacon strips. Smear the bacon-onion-cheese mixture down the center of the cutlet. Roll the cutlet and outer bacon strips tightly over the mixture. As you roll, the bacon strips come along to wrap the Tornado, leaving nothing but bacon exposed.

3. Roast on your grill over indirect heat at 375 degrees F for 45 to 60 minutes until bacon looks irresistible and internal temperature of pork is at least 155 degrees F. For greater flavor, use applewood chips. Let Tornado rest 10 minutes under loose foil tent. Slice and enjoy.

Adam from Big Brother 13 in a Skulls & Bacon t-shirt!

So just to follow up, if you haven’t followed Big Brother Season 13 this summer…My friend Adam made it to the final three but Rachel ended up winning. Still, he did really awesome and I think it’s great that he got to live one of his dreams.

The Skulls and Bacon t-shirt that was supposed to be in his gift basket when he won the HOH competion wasn’t included so he didn’t get it until the show was over. However, he was rockin’ the Skulls And Bacon tee at the afterparty in Vegas, baby!



And today I see an article about Adam’s time in the BB House in one of our local papers, here’s the best quote ever:

And what will he miss the most about the Big Brother house?

“The unlimited supply of bacon,” he answered without a moment of hesitation. “Not one week did we ever run out of bacon. Now, when I want bacon, I can’t go to the storage room and just pull out another package. I’m going to have to go to the store and buy it.”

Thanks for keeping me company on TV and the live feeds all summer, Adam! I hope your transition back into the world is filled with bacon and much love.

Now I know there’s only a few hours left in the day, but if you hurry there’s a coupon just for today since it’s Talk Like A Pirate Day – Take 15% Off All Skulls & Bacon T-shirts! Use Code: AAARRRGGGHHH

Bacon – Taste the Rainbow!

I’m gonna let the pictures do the talkin’ here…

 

Yes, that is a rainbow of bacon!  Why?  Because someone (a certain Neil Caldwell) dared to dream.

I don’t know how I feel about this and have reservations about eating anything that blue or purple or green but I will give the man some credit, he’s gone and done something pretty unique.

Thanks to FoTDB Justin for the heads up on this story found on Bacon Today.
