A simple BLT for breakfast with a fresh yellow tomato straight from the garden. I had to settle for arugula in stead of the cool crispness of iceberg.

Unfortunately the lovely photo I took won't upload,, and since I've already eaten it, you cannot gaze upon its perfect tastiness.
Thanks for the inspiration. Slather sriracha aoli on toasted sourdough and you've achieved perfection culinary-wise. Probably makes for a better lunch than breakfast,though.

I’ve written about the joys of home-made bacon jam and its many uses as a condiment.

In a pantry clear-out mode looking for a new direction for a pork loin roast for tonight, I discovered this, which seems a felicitous blend of recent bourbon discussions and bacon.

I’ll roast the pork with a dry rub (salt, smoked paprika, black pepper, thyme, rosemary, garlic, chipotle) then glaze it with this the last 10 minutes so it caramelizes a bit, and have more on the side.

I just saw this on a cooking video the other day. Never heard of this stuff.

If you have leftovers, I'll be waiting in your driveway in a properly socially-distanced lawn chair to take them off your hands! It's going to take me 14 hours to get there, though! :)

I've used this to glaze chops just before pulling off of the grill. I have also been known to slather it on toasted bread and then lay on shaved leftover pork loin with havarti, arugula and thin red onion slices.

On another popular thread, tofu bacon was mentioned. I had to see if it really exists. To my horror, it does. Sadly, there is also some other travesty known as 'rice paper bacon'. Who are THESE people? I have always found this to be true; if you like dogs, like bacon, crunchy peanut butter and toilet paper coming from over the TOP of the roll, we will be fast friends. These 'tofu bacon' and 'rice paper bacon' people and I cannot be friends.

In other news:

USNA was informed that bacon rounds served with lunch on burger days are a mid favorite. Morale was too high so we lost the bacon. Mutiny!

Your quote on the other thread made me remember with great fondness a spectacular epicurean experience. My sister, my BIL and myself had dinner at "The Kitchen" in Sacramento. It's an amazing place, with a fixed menu based on season and availablity each month. Multiple courses, wine pairings, sashimi intermezio, you get the picture. They also tell you to get up, tour the kitchen, tour the wine cellar, ask to stir something and you can ask for anything, whether on the menu or not. And you can have as many servings of whatever you want. They do one seating a night, and they will stay as long as you want to eat and drink.

The first course involved salmon, in a lovely sauce and it was topped with 'Octopus bacon'. I kid you not. Octopus cut into strips and treated just like bacon. It even looked like bacon. It was fantastic. I ate 3 portions. The guy next to me then ordered an octopus bacon BLT, and they made it for him!

I will stand by Pig being the real and only bacon. But in a pinch, Octopus bacon at the Kitchen will do.

I just saw this in the Sunday newspaper Parade Magazine, Pineapple Bacon Coleslaw from “The Official John Wayne 5-Ingredient Homestyle Cookbook.” Intriguing in many ways, with crunch, sweetness, saltiness and smokiness. I plan to test drive it over Labor Day weekend. I would use fresh pineapple and probably grill the green onions to add some char.

I might have to report this and issue some points for this post... 😜

Yeah, it violates the freshness rules! You can only reference MREs on these forums! Actually it's now on my FB page for future reference. Looks tasty plus it has BACON!
