Best Menu Ever?!?


Behold the menu for Bacon, a restaurant that opened this month in Austin, TX.

Curse you Austin for having something this awesome!

Not including the sides, I counted only three things on the menu that didn’t have bacon in some way, shape or form.

They were also just featured in “The Daily Texan” (hey, nice name) where they merited an “A” rating!  Here’s a snippet:

“What we decided to do was specialize in making the traditional old-fashioned meals and just making them with better bacon,” said Bacon co-founder Jed Taylor. “Really, I think that people will be inspired to create their own meal here.”

When first entering Bacon, where according to Taylor they cook about 80 to 150 pounds of the meat a day, one might expect to be overwhelmed by the smell of maple syrup and sizzling pork. That is not the case at all. The atmosphere at Bacon is like walking into your kitchen at home, but with a few more tables.

Read the rest here.

Bacon’s website isn’t live just yet, but you can check them out on Facebook.  If you are in or headin’ to Austin, make sure you stop by and then tell us all about it!

Best Bacon Summer Salads

best-bacon-summer-salads

Summer is the ideal season for salads. The hot weather makes us crave meals that don’t involve much (if any) cooking. It’s also during summer that some of us decide to try and lose a few lbs. and salads can be a good way to “eat healthier.”

These salads go beyond the typical bacon salad recipes like the Blue Cheese Wedge and the Cobb. Using a mix of simple and sometimes unusual ingredients, these salads will satisfy your cravings for bacon and healthier dishes that don’t require much cooking. We recommend cooking a couple of lbs. of bacon and storing the cooked slices in the fridge. When you need a few slices, just pull ‘em out, microwave for 15 seconds and add ‘em to your salad.

Bacon Sunflower Seeds


Sunflower seeds are good as hell. I spent a lifetime trying to master eating them without spitting out the shell. Good for the tastebuds, bad for the anus. A trade off I am willing to make.

So... take that logic and apply it to bigs sizzlin' bacon sunflower seeds and compete your digestive cycle with a sense of pride.
