Bacon Boutique – Dress You Up…

We’ve seen bacon neck wear in the past (here & here), but this particular one has that certain, I don’t know, je ne
sais quoi…

Blue suit, nice crisp white shirt, bacon tie.  That’s a man who means bizness.

2564. SAVORY CHICKEN and BACON "CUPCAKES" with TABASCO CREAM CHEESE FROSTING

makes about 24

Cupcakes
1 cup small diced chicken breast (12 ounces wt.)
3 tablespoons butter
1/2 cup each 1/8-inch-diced onion, celery and red bell pepper
1 tablespoon minced garlic
3/4 cup cornmeal
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1 1/2 tablespoon sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 tablespoon Old Bay seasoning
2 eggs
1/3 cup whole milk
1/3 cup sour cream
1/2 cup frozen corn kernels, thawed and drained well
8 strips cooked bacon, chopped fine (about 1/2 cup chopped)

Frosting
4 ounce cream cheese, at room temperature
1 1/2 tablespoon milk
1 teaspoon Tabasco sauce

Garnish
2 thinly sliced green onions

Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F.

To make the cupcakes: Spray nonstick mini-muffin tins with cooking spray. Set aside.

Cut chicken breast into 1/4-inch small pieces. In a small skillet or sauté pan over medium heat, melt the butter. Add the chicken breast and sauté for about 3 minutes moving around the pan with a spoon. When chicken is three-quarters cooked then add the onion, celery, and bell pepper for about 3 to 4 minutes more, until vegetables are just starting to get tender. Add the garlic and sauté about 30 seconds more. Let cool.

Meanwhile, in a small bowl, whisk together the cornmeal, flour, sugar, baking powder, and Old Bay seasoning; set aside. In a large bowl, whisk together the egg, milk, and sour cream.
Once the cooked mixture is cooled, add the cornmeal mixture to the egg mixture and mix lightly. Fold in the drained corn, bacon, and cooked and vegetables. Do not overmix; fold in just until evenly distributed.

Divide batter between the prepared mini muffin cups, fill to the top – you will get about 24 cupcakes. Bake the cupcakes for about 22 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in cupcake center comes out clean.

Let the cupcakes cool in the pan for about 5 minutes, then carefully remove them from the pan and let cool briefly on a wire rack before frosting. The cupcakes can be made up to 1 day in advance, covered, and refrigerated before frosting. Refrigeration is imperative if making in advance. If reheating cupcakes, warm them for minute or so in a 350-degree F oven before frosting.

To make the frosting
: In a small bowl, mash the cream cheese with a fork, then whisk in the milk and Tabasco until smooth and creamy. Top each cupcake with about 1 teaspoon of frosting then sprinkle with green onion for garnish. Serve warm.

makes one serving

1 slice of bacon, cut into small pieces
2 ramps, trimmed and cleaned
2 eggs, lightly beaten
salt and pepper to taste

Add the white parts of the ramps to the pan and saute for a minute. Reduce the heat to medium-low. Season the eggs with salt and pepper and pour them into the pan and top with the greens of the ramps, the asparagus and the goat cheese.

2443. BROAD BEAN, BACON, CHILI and TAHINI SALAD SANDWICH

serves two

1 tablespoon olive oil
¼ medium white onion
½ clove garlic
1 teaspoon balsamic vinegar
sea salt and black pepper, to taste
25 grams (a couple of rashers) streaky bacon,
100 grams (about 400 grams of unpodded ones) shelled broad beans,
½ small red chili
about a tablespoon of fresh mint leaves
1 tablespoon tahini
2 small pita breads
20ml (or a heaped tablespoon) crème fraîche

Blanch or fry the beans for a couple of minutes until the skins split/separate, cool and then shell. Whilst the beans are cooling, cut the bacon and chili up into small pieces, peel and slice the onion, peel and crush the garlic and, if necessary, rinse the mint. Heat the olive oil in a frying pan. Fry the bacon until crisp then add the de-skinned beans and chili. Stir well and cook for a minute or two. Add the onion and garlic to the beans and bacon, stir in well and cook for another minute. Whilst the onion is cooking, you can, if you want, heat the pitta breads up briefly (a minute in a toaster will do it) then split them. Take the pan off the heat, stir in the tahini, balsamic vinegar and mint. Divide the salad between the breads and, if you want, season and add a dessertspoon of crème fraîche.

Jay Leno’s Bacon Lube Commercial

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.
