Look, I can appreciate this. I was young too, I felt just like you. Hated authority, hated all my bosses, thought they were full of shit. Look, it's like they say, if you're not a rebel by the age of 20, you got no heart, but if you haven't turned establishment by 30, you've got no brains. Because there are no story-book romances, no fairy-tale endings. So before you run out and change the world, ask yourself, "What do you really want?"

The wife made me some chocolate covered bacon on Tuesday. It was the first time I tried it. It was amazing.

I make that stuff at home.

Take bacon, put it on a baking rack with drip pan underneath. Sprinkle slivers of dark chocolate (or maple syrup). Bake until ready to consume.

Repeat.

Again.

And again.


You could also go the route of baking/frying bacon, and melting some chocolate, then dipping and cooling.

Bacon wrapped anything:


Wrap (whatever) in bacon. Put on foil lined cookie sheet (easy cleanup) and place in 450 degree oven for 20-25 minutes (depending on thickness / size of bacon)

Enjoy.


Good things to wrap: Dates, pineapple, mandarin oranges, whole water chestnuts, garlic, cubes of cheese (likes to ooze out though... yummy mess!)
and my favorite: Bacon wrapped bacon!

Like all normal people, i love bacon, what I don't love is the mess it makes while being cooked. Share your tips for minimizing the splatter from cooking bacon.

Bake it instead of frying. Tastes just as good.

Anybody try the bacon sundae from Dennys? Looked nasty to me, but I guess some people are into that stuff.


Due to recent budget cuts and the rising cost of electricity, gas, and oil,

Not really.

Foil lined cookie sheet... 450 degrees for about 20-25 minutes (depending on how 'done' you like it).

eat and enjoy... let the cookie sheet cool down w/ the grease to make it easier to crumple up and throw away - easier to do than when it's solid and cool then hot and drippy/runny... duh... OR.. be daring and save that stuff off and use it to pan fry things like eggs, spinach, etc.

If you have TONS of splatter, then you're probably frying your bacon too hot to begin with.

But oven baking minimizes splatter.

Another trick to reducing splatter in your pan is, once your pan is heated up, to toss in a few pinches of salt then lay your bacon down. The chemical reaction will help to reduce the amount of crap.

They make a screen with a handle that goes on top of your pan or skillet that elminates splatter...I've seen it in several stores...I'm positive you could get one in Bed, Bath & Beyond...my wife drags me in there often and when it comes to stuff like the splatter screen, if they don't have it I'd be very surprised!

PS...always par-fry your bacon before putting it in the oven for dishes that call for bacon in the oven...that will cut down on splatter quite a bit!

Bacon, Bacon, Bacon, egg and bacon...now that's a breafast! It beats Spam, Spam , Spam, egg and Spam any day!
The City should add bacon flavor to the water!

If you have a sheet with a drip well around it (to catch grease), lay out the strips of bacon on it (no oil or anything needed), pre-heat oven to 350F. Place in middle rack in oven for 15-18 minutes depending on how crispy you like it.

I learned this from a chef who made the best bacon I've ever had. If you get it just right, it comes out flat, dry, and simply melts in your mouth.

Two adjustments to that.

Lay out a full sheet of foil on top of that other sheet (rims and all). Then once you're done, you can toss the foil instead of scraping crap off of your cookie sheet.

Halfway through baking, turn the sheet around. Most ovens don't cook evenly, so turning will help to ensure balanced cooking.

That's a good point...my sheet has a drip line around it, and I just pour it into a coffee can to toss out, and quickly wipe down the sheet and store it. Foil with little walls made around it would do about the same thing and could be tossed. I'll have to try that and see if it comes out any different from my air core sheet.
