My plans for Saturday already include a trip to Shake Shack to try the custard of the day: Pancakes & Bacon. I am all for bacon is desserts—bacon in anything really. Bacon is great on burgers. Bacon is great with peanut butter. But what to make of this very limited Shack offer (available this Saturday at the UWS location only): a peanut butter bacon burger? Could be interesting. Imagine beef satay sprinkled with bacon… that sounds tasty! But for some reason I just can’t see that combination being super awesome in a burger. And since I won’t be trekking all the way uptown, I guess I’ll never know.
In a small bowl, mix all spicy spread ingredients together and set aside. (This can be made ahead of time and kept refrigerated.) Cook the bacon in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat until slightly crisp, about 8 minutes. Remove and drain on a paper towel-lined plate. Set aside to keep warm. In a medium-size sauté pan over medium heat, add extra-virgin olive oil and pastrami. Heat the pastrami thoroughly, approximately 4 minutes. Keep warm. Heat a large, flat grill pan over medium heat and melt butter. Lay the slices of bread on top of the butter then distribute the Temptin cheese on two halves and the cheddar cheese on the other two halves. Cook open faced until the cheese melts and the bread is golden, about 6 minutes.

Bacon Jason has been keeping the bacon candles burning over on Facebook; hit us up at the link on the right. I have been spending my time in the service of the small island nation of Reduxia. But my sentence…err, I mean that job is over so hopefully we will be back in the swing of things.
Holidays are coming up, be sure to hit up the store link and get some bacon gifts.
