Oberto Bacon Jerky Giveaway

**UPDATE!**Congrats to Phairhead for winning the Oberto Bacon Jerky! Hopefully she’ll let us know how she likes it! Natazcha was originally picked as the winner but I didn’t realize that you couldn’t ship food overseas so a consolation prize is coming her way!

A couple of weeks ago I entered a Thrillist contest on Twitter (@Thrillist) to win some bags of Bacon Jerky from Oberto. All I had to do was answer the question, how much do I love bacon? Well, duh, and yes, I was one of the winners.

So I came home the next week to this box sitting on my doorstep:
Oberto Bacon Jerky box

You might know Oberto from their jerky and other meat snacks. New to their line-up is Applewood Smoked Bacon Jerky and I was psyched to try it. I opened the box to two bags of Bacon Jerky and a Bacon Wallet!

I ripped open a bag right away and was automatically impressed by the look of the Bacon Jerky. Big pieces, thick and meaty…

Wow, this stuff is really, really good. Pure, fresh bacon taste, not too salty, not too fatty or chewy. It’s also not as leathery or tough as beef jerky and you could totally use this on a sandwich. I’d have no problem throwing some on a BLT. I brought a bag to work with me and everyone who tried it was really impressed. I’ve tried some other bacon jerky products and so far Oberto’s Bacon Jerky is hands-down the best.

It wasn’t until a couple of days later that I opened the Bacon Wallet…

Freakin’ hysterical. Oberto filled the wallet with all sorts of fun – a Bacon Driver’s License, Bacon Jerky Business Card, photobooth photos and more.

These made me actually laugh out loud.

**GIVEAWAY**

Comments must be in by midnight EST, Tues. May 7th. Please make sure I have a way to contact you via email or twitter when making your comment, so that I can contact you in case you win.

KFC’s Cheesy Bacon Bowl Giveaway!

A few weeks ago I got an email asking if I wanted to try KFC’s new Cheesy Bacon Bowl. Are you kidding? Of course I would LOVE to try it! Being a huge fan of KFC to begin with, there’s no way I could miss this opportunity.

In case you haven’t already heard, KFC’s Cheesy Bacon Bowl features a generous serving of creamy mashed potatoes, layered with sweet kernel corn and loaded with bite-sized pieces of crispy Popcorn Chicken. The entire bowl is drizzled with signature home-style gravy and topped off with a shredded three-cheese blend – and now, a layer of bacon. For only $3.99

A few days later, I got home from work and found this waiting for me:

Bacon Nation: A Tasty Recipe Book Review & Giveaway

bacon rosemary flatbread

This isn’t really a review. It’s more of a healthy thanking for recipe books that are practically edible …and now covered in bacon grease. And a giveaway. Let’s just be clear, at the bottom, there are details on how to win this cookbook.

You may recognize the symptoms of being ‘that bacon person.’ You have links posted to your Facebook wall so often, that you’ve seen the same recipe three times from three different people. People continually ask “Do you have bacon in that?” or “Don’t you worry about eating so much bacon?” Finally, you get a bacon recipe cookbook not one, but two Christmases in a row.

Truth be told, I’m not a cookbook gal. I tend to tear recipes apart, but also want to treasure the pages of a book. The conflicting desires literally tear me up inside. This time, I said, “It’s 2014, it’s a new year, let’s mark this baby up.”

And boy, I had fun with that.

peanut butter bacon cookies recipe bacon nation recipes-1-2bacon nation recipes-6bacon shortbread

So far I’ve stuck with the sweets, including Bacon Shortbread (above), Bacon Peanut Butter Cookies, and Bacon Flatbread. (Hello, fatty carbs, my new year’s resolution would like to say, “oh my!”)

raw bacon prep workpeanut butter bacon cookies

It really is a delicious book, which is why we’ve shared an adaptation of the flatbread recipe below. We made a few tweaks, which any bacon lover will definitely enjoy. Like, more bacon [fat]. These are delicious with eggs, and also when drunk. For the original recipe, you should enter to win a copy of the book! The  Bacon Nation author Maria Rama was awesome enough to give one away, which should say something about how awesome the book is.

To enter the Bacon Nation giveaway just leave a comment, letting us know why you are a part of the Bacon Nation or let Twitter know! a Rafflecopter giveaway

Bacon FlatbreadBacon Flatbread by Adapted from Maria Rama and Peter Kaminsky’s Bacon Nation

Cook Time: 20 minutes

Yield: three 9

Ingredients:4 slices bacon, cut into 1/4 – 1/2 inches1 3/4 cups unbleached all purpose flour1 tsp baking powder3/4 tsp salt1 tbs chopped fresh rosemary1/2 cup bacon fat (plus some for brushing)1/2 cup water
Instructions:
Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Cut three sheets of parchment paper to 12 x 12. Cook bacon in medium skillet over medium heat until lightly browned and mostly rendered. Transfer bacon to a paper lined plate to cool. Reserve bacon fat for later. Combine flour, baking powder, salt, rosemary, and bacon to mix. Create a well in the middle of the dry mix. In the well, add the bacon fat, water and stir until a dough forms. Knead your dough 4-5 times. Divide dough into 3 pieces and shape into balls. Taking one ball, on the parchment paper, a lightly floured rolling pin, roll dough out to 9 to 10 inches at 1/4 inch thick. Keep the other balls covered in plastic wrap to stay moist. Brush the rolled out dough with bacon fat. Slide the dough, still on the parchment paper, onto the pre heated baking sheet in the oven. Bake until the bread is browned in some spots, 8 to 20 minutes. Transfer bread to cooling rack. Repeat earlier process with the other two balls and parchment paper. After cooled, break into cracker-like pieces to eat or store. Store in an airtight container for up to 3 days.
