Bacon Pic of the Day – It’s Fair Time!

We’ve talked about the wonders of Fair Food before (1, 2, 3, 4) but I just so much kid-like joy out of this photo that I had to share..and even I learned something new about the art of frying.

First, what a GREAT trailer!  Especially LOVE the hot nurse with defib paddles ;-) .  B) the plethora of bacon related products sold through this truck include: Beer Battered Bacon with Ranch & BBQ, Beer Battered Bacon Sandwiches, Garlic Butter Bacon Fries fired in oil and bacon fat as well as the now “old standby” ChocoBacon. Tres, the horrific Chocolate Covered Corn Dog and what is now my favorite Deep Fried Butter!

My heart is seezing just writing this…

We no longer have a state fair in Michigan, so I must live vicariously through all of you and photos such as this.  Oh whoa is me.

Better with Bacon – Killer Bacon Cheese Hot Dogs…

“Killer” being the optimal word here…but hey, we’re all gonna die someday! Might as well enjoy ourselves and grab a couple of these.

Killer Bacon Cheese Hot Dogs


8 slices bacon
8 all-beef hot dogs
8 hot dog buns
8 slices Swiss cheese
1/2 cup barbeque sauce, or amount to taste
1 small red onion, diced


Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat. Lightly oil grate, and set 4 inches from the heat.
Place the bacon in a large, deep skillet. Cook over medium-high heat until evenly brown. Drain on paper towels.
Place hot dogs on grill; cook until browned, 5 to 8 minutes, turning once, or until done to suit your taste. Lightly grill hot dog buns.
To assemble sandwiches, place a slice of cheese and bacon on each roll. Add a hot dog, top each with 1 tablespoon barbeque sauce, or desired amount, and red onion.

You know you want one ;-)

Hope everyone had a great holiday weekend!  Back to the grind tomorrow…
