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.

Better with Bacon – PBBBB

I don’t know what it is, but I am soooooo hungry today!  So hungry in fact that this looked REALLY good!!

It’s simple, it’s easy, it’s got bacon , it’s…

The Peanut Butter Bacon Banana Boat.

Told you I was hungry.

Exact quote from the site where I found this:

A recipe for an easy delicious healthy sandwich like Elvis Presley loved.

It’s the word “healthy” that made me laugh.  BTW, if you really dig the banana/peanut butter thing, go to the Twisted Spoke in Chicago and get the Elvis French Toast.  Yummy! and good for curing any issues from the night before ;-)

Anywho, recipe after the jump:Ingredients:

2 Hot Dog Buns
1 Banana
Peanut Butter
4 long strips of Bacon


Open the hot dog buns and toast them. The bun tastes better if you toast it, but it isn’t absolutely necessary.

When the bun is toasted, spread some peanut butter on each side of the bun on both hot dog buns.

Fry the 4 long bacon strips until done and crispy. The crispier the better. Press a long piece of bacon into the peanut butter on each half of the bun. (Two strips per sandwich.)

Peel the banana and slice the banana lengthwise into two halves. One half for each sandwich.

Place a long banana slice in the middle of each of the two hot dog buns and close.

Pour a tall glass of cold milk and enjoy!

Makes 2 sandwiches.

Top 5 Moments from United States of Bacon

usob-top-5On May 31st, Destination America will air 2 brand-spanking new episodes of our favorite TV show: United States of Bacon. Because the only thing better than eating a pile of bacon is watching someone else eat a pile of bacon.

1. The Bacon Tower

If you haven’t seen the picture of the foot-high Bacon Tower, then you’re doing the Internet wrong. But have you seen the video of the Bacon Tower toppling? It’s in this clip featuring Seattle’s “Red Mill Burger” restaurant. Move over, Space Needle, the Bacon Tower should become the symbol of the Emerald City!

2. The Walking Ched

A triple-decker bacon cheeseburger sandwiched between two panko-crusted, deep-fried mac and cheese “buns.” It’s such a diabolical concoction of over-indulgence that you just have to see how it’s made.

3. Bacon Turtle Burgers

A trifecta of meat, each turtle burger is made of 2 hamburger patties, 3 hot dogs, and 10 strips of bacon. Forget the bun, who needs it? So adorable, you might not want to eat it. Wait, did I just say? Of course you’d want to eat it! It’s not that adorable…

3. Bacon-wrapped Meatloaf Sandwich.

You’ve seen bacon-wrapped meatloaf, how about an epic sandwich-sized version? At half a foot tall, good luck fitting this into your mouth! This behemoth is topped with 4 layers of bacon. Watch the video on how this bad boy is made. Warning: it will make you ravenously hungry!

5. Bacon Ice Cream Sundae with Bourbon Caramel

The Sweet Rose Creamery in Santa Monica serves up this concoction that is a bacon and ice cream lover’s ultimate fantasy! The Bacon Ice Cream Slider is served on a warm brioche bun, topped with bacon strips and drizzled with cinnamon syrup. It’s the ultimate bacon summer dessert!
