O Joy!

When Zingerman's says they'll send me bacon in 5 to 7 business days, apparantly what they mean is that their honor demands that I not be without bacon for more than 24 hours.  Yesterday afternoon I thought, "we are almost out of bacon."  This morning I am blessed with an abundance.

Hooray Zingermans!

Bacon + The Spirit of Scientific Inquiry = this.

...not a resounding success, either.

Bacon Toffee, sadly, was a little disappointing.  It tasted like toffee and bacon.  Don't get me wrong, it was yummy, but the unholy alchemy that has taken place in some of my other bacon experiments (Bacon Chocolate Chip Cookies, Bacon Ice Cream) wasn't present in the Bacon Toffee.  It was good... but it wasn't sublime.

A combination of a sweetest day present for my sweetie, a birthday present for samazon, and a deep, personal love for bacon have led to my latest bacon recipe:

Bacon Chocolate Chip Cookies.  They are made of salty sweet awesome deliciousness.

Science could not be content with merely making the cookies.  What about my vegetarian friends?  Well, I've discovered that substituting chopped pecans for bacon bits works admirably; chopped vegetarian bacon... less so.   It's still OK, because heck, it's a cookie, but definitely pecans or real bacon are the correct answers.

Below is my version of the recipe, then - I made some changes in the proportions and a slight technique change.  The link above was my original source, though.

tamarinne: (smartie)
Bread - not too sweet, not too thick
Leftover pork roast - sliced thin
Mustard - yellow or dijon
Mayo - or Miracle Whip?
Swiss cheese - one slice
Dill Pickles - sliced or diced
Banana Peppers - ditto
and in lieu of ham... Bacon, baby.   Cooked, but not too crisp.

Butter the outside of the sandwich, and cook it in a sandwich press or foreman grill or the like, about 6 minutes total or 3 minutes per side, depending on your method.   The cheese should be melty and the outside should be toasty brown.

yummmmmmm.....

It sounds a little weird, but it tastes yummy - like a smokey sort of pecan praline with salty deliciousness!

And if certain ill-informed people think it sounds disgusting and put wildly biased polls in their LJ to make it sound gross, all I have to say is, hmph.  Try it, then tell me you don't like it.   

Hmph.
