2554. PASTRAMI BACON MELT

serves two

1/4 cup mayonnaise
1/2 tablespoon horseradish
1 tablespoon hot sauce
2 tablespoons jalapeno peppers, diced
2 tablespoons (8 olives) Spanish manzanilla olives with minced pimento
4 tablespoons sweet pickle, diced
1/4 teaspoon fresh cracked pepper
6 slices bacon, cooked
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
8 slices (approx. 1/2 lb.) pastrami
1 tablespoon butter
3 oz. cheddar cheese, shredded
3 oz. Temptin cheese, shredded
4 slices extra sour rye bread

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.

2714. BACON-WRAPPED SWEET POTATO FRIES

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.
