gladly_beyond: I have had to show my boyfriend how to use the toaster, how to preheat the oven, all KINDS of things. Once I asked him if he knew how you cook bacon and he kind of stared at me and was like, "Um, fry it in oil? Coat the pan in butter?"


maereth: I let my husband think that there's some kind of magic to cooking bacon because otherwise he'd die of bacon poisoning within 3 hours of figuring it out.

Context is trying to figure out how to get the vacuum to unbend.

And with that I borrow the following, all respect due to xkcd:

mmmmmm... buttery bacon..... mmmmm....

Bacon and butter? That's like a heart attack of yumminess. Talk about dying happy.

thankfully, mine can't have bacon, so theres one bullet dodged.

Deep-fried butter bacon. Oh my!

Also... nice icon. :-D

Thank you! It's one of my favorite complicated-tasting-but-easy-to-prepare party snacks.

Ted kicks ass.

Edit- I use cherry maters and cook them for an hour and a half or so. Then toss them with some lemon juice, parmesan, lightly cooked asparagus, and parsley, then toss with bowtie pasta. NOM NOM NOM.

Winner of the Best Taste Award in the Big Tex Choice Awards at the State Fair of Texas this year was Chicken-Fried Bacon.

Let me say that again, to make sure that no one thought it was a typo. You can get Chicken-Fried Bacon at the State Fair of Texas this year.

I've had it. It's awesome.

Sounds like the Southern classic streak-o-lean, which is breaded and fried fatback. In other words, deep-fried fat. At least bacon includes some meat!

you know,I've never understood the appeal of bacon. personally, I think it's disgusting.

I eat chips very occasionally and I have scrambled eggs like...IDK,once a week? maybe less. I mostly just eat bread with avocado.avocado with anything is delicious. and it's somewhat healthy

Fat percentage of a serving of avacado: 85-90%

Fat percentage of a serving of bacon: 75-80%

Course you could break it down to "good fats" versus "bad fats" and all the other stuff that could be found in an avacado vs. slap o' bacon and compare those, but that would ruin the point that fat = DELICIOUS.

Oh my God, the Carl's Jr. commercials were right!

I distinctly recall a recipe for a substance called 'Pig Candy' that was basically bacon strips coated in brown sugar and baked until crispy.

I read about it in the book The Sweet Potato Queens' Big-Ass Cookbook (and Financial Planner).

As they said, it was a lot of recipes that would kill you if you ate them regularly, but you'd die happy.

Not from that book, but in a similar vein...

Bacon-wrapped peaches: OMG OMG OMG.

I could nom them forever.

Seconded. I always smell it and go "ooh", but one bite, and I'm spitting it out. In my world, pork is something that happens to other people.

...I love being the cook in the family.

Couldn't he have turkey bacon? Nom nom (back when I ate things with faces.)

This is the reason I can never own a deep fryer.

My scottish friend threw himself a party where all the food was deep-fried. Deep-fried pizza is, incidentally, awesome. For dessert, he made brownie batter with Guinness instead of water and used that for batter to coat Snickers bars, Oreos, and marshmallows. Oh god, the deep-fried chocolate Guinness marshmallows...

butter-fried bacon, and all the other things we're talking about remind me of a Scotch Egg. One egg, hard boiled, then wrapped in inch thick sausage, and fried.

Heart attack on a plate, but so good.

I haven't had one of those in *years*, but I remember the last time I did I was just about catatonic with pleasure.
