It’s been a crazy week in the world of bacon. Sometimes, things just hum along with a few interesting bits of bacon trivia popping up into the Republic of Bacon radar but nothing too serious. There will be a fancy new bacon burger at a local restaurant and perhaps some stylish new bacon socks to […]

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.

2 medium sweet potatoes, cut into matchsticks about the width of your pinky finger 8 oz bacon, don’t use thick cut
Get your oven to 425°F and place your oven rack in the center of the oven. Slice each piece of bacon in half, lengthwise and then in half, widthwise (you’ll have 4 strips cut from 1 piece of bacon). Wrap 1 strip of bacon around 1 matchstick sweet potato. Lay on a baking sheet lined with a silicone pat or parchment paper. Repeat until all the bacon is gone. If you have left over sweet potatoes, toss ‘em on the pan; they’ll cook beautifully in the rendered bacon fat. Bake for 15 minutes until the sweet potatoes feel soft. Turn the oven to broil and let the tops get crispy.

So I finally got around to trying one of my bacon ideas tonight for dinner. I picked up some deli bacon at Winco knowing that I needed to cook something with it. Tonight the stars were aligned and it was time to work up some bacon quesadillas. It is not the first time I have tried them, but the first time with fresh cooked bacon.
I cooked up the bacon in the frying pan and then cut it up roughly. I dumped a bit of the grease and then made up the quesadillas. I used two small taco size tortillas because that is what I had and then put on the bacon and some pre grated “mexican” cheese. Now comes my quesadilla secret, I put some cheese in the pan just before slapping it in. I am a lover of the fried cheese and it adds a nice crunchiness. Get one side cooked well and then lift it up throw down some more cheese and flip. Then as you can see I add a little salsa and sour cream to the plate. I also used the pizza cutter to make it into a nice finger meal.
The bacon is a nice touch. The flavor, crunchiness and cooking grease really add to a classic quesadilla. This is the first and probably easiest of my bacon ideas floating around in my head. I love bacon and will make sure and let you know how they go.
note: Sorry about the crappy pics, the iPhone failed me. Also don’t know why the layout is so funky but live with it.
