How do I love bacon? Let me count the ways...
1. As is, crispy with just a little flexibility around the edges. About 26 pieces, please.
2. In bacon jam on baguettes. Heck, straight from the jar.
3. With eggs about a billion ways including souffle, omelettes, scrambled...
4. Along with mire poix in things such as soups, stews, braised dishes. For example, I am making a mean black bean with chiles en adobo and lime today. And bacon.
5. In potato salad and crumbled onto other salads.
6. Warm bacon dressing.
7. Spaghetti Carbonara.

There. That's a start. Now it's YOUR turn! :)

Anyone else keep bacon fat around for baking and cooking? When making bread I use it to grease pans. Especially good with cornbread.


I keep the fat and use it for cornbread too! And fried potatoes and potato soup and.....

#8 Quiche with double smoked bacon

For dinner tonight it will be something with ground pork but I don't know what yet.

You could write a bacon cookbook.
I admit to having a can in the freezer, like my Mom does.
I also admit to making our eggs in the bacon grease like my Mom does.
Mom is 86 and healthy as a horse, works out at a gym 3X a week and walks 2 miles without huffing and puffing,
therefore I conclude bacon is good for us.

Maybe we should have changed the title to: Ode to Bacon


with poems like "Shall I compare thee to a Slab of bacon?"

Didn't you tell me your daughter brought home BACON flavored candy canes? :lol:

Dinner tonight is stuffed peppers, but I feel compelled to drape bacon over the top for some reason........

- Symptoms from 2001, maybe before. Across 20+ years, these have included, vomiting, D, migraines, headaches, recurrent miscarriage, inflammation problems (failure to heal from injuries) brain fog, anxiety and more!
- Elimination diet using Atkins, 2003 – excluded wheat, caffeine, quorn. 2005, excluded sesame, alcohol
- Started diagnosis route April 2012, blood tests, endoscopy – said negative, gluten challenge, clearly something very wrong, had to stop after 3 weeks.
- Gluten Free, August 2012, Corn Free, September 2012. Removed most processed gluten free foods.
- Genetic testing, December 2012 – negative – Diagnosis – Non Celiac Gluten Intolerance (NCGI)
- Elimination diet, January 2013 – all of the above plus dairy, legumes, all grains, sugar, additives, white potatoes, soy. Reintroducing sloooowly now. Health improving.

Sorry, sweets :( ((hugs))
DH is awesome for taking care of your dinner!!
KUDOS for still retaining your sense of humor while glutened. Not easy, is it? :(

And celiac--it ain't for sissies.
Hope you feel well soon---and enjoy your next serving of bacon.

My men are having breakfast for dinner - waffles, eggs and hmmm...what is that lovely smell wafting from my kitchen???

For me - my first attempt at apple breadlike substance without using eggs -- and for the first time ever in all my years of cooking I used too much salt :huh: -- maybe the eggs absorbed any previous oversalting :P -- along with encore chicken and broccoli soup.

I'm all for two silly compounds -- ok who is heat intolerant or cold intolerant -- thinking I may get left alone with the cabana boy to shovel snow when hubby heads out to catch his beloved fishies in southern waters B)

Hope you are feeling better very soon MW - that gluten stuff is a PITA ;)

I decided at the store last night to try KA waffle mix instead of buying more Bisquick. I was thrilled with how good my waffles turned out. My husband will not put gravy on waffles, I suppose it is because he grew up in CA and not back east where chicken and waffles is a "thing." What a sad and empty childhood he must have had, poor thing. :( My turkey and waffles were delicious and he had waffles and bacon.

OMG!!! I think that's too much striped hog even for me. After all the talk about bacon this morning, I decided not to have a bacon, lettuce and avocado sammie for lunch - I'd already overdone my bacon quota for the day, and now look what you've done!

:lol: :lol: :lol:

Happy Thanksgiving to all Psillies (with or without bacon)

How do people live without chicken and waffles?! (or turkey and waffles as a after turkey substitute) I can't be the only person who grew up eating this at least once a month and usually more often.
