Let Them Eat Bacon

bacon-choc.jpgBacon is delicious, no more need be said on that topic. Yet, I’m always intrigued when people pair the goodness of bacon with other taste sensations, thereby increasing its powers tenfold. Like the Chicago chef who covers bacon in a layer of melted chocolate. Genius! “Bacon’s heyday has arrived” says the article about all the new ways bacon is being incorporated into recipes. When has it ever not been in fashion, says I. The culinary wonders that perfected the bacon chocolate have even gone one step further:

“We’ve put bacon in truffles and scones,” said Vinny Garcia. They’ve even added a strip to a cake called “the Elvis,” which contains chocolate, peanut butter and banana bread.

My mouth is watering as I type this. And yet, the health nuts and bacon deniers always must have their equal time.

“Literally the only bad reaction we’ve gotten has been from animal rights people,”Garcia said, ” but that doesn’t make sense because it’s sitting next to a ham and cheese croissant.”

Feh! Bacon for all! And stifle all dissenters.

  1. I make the husband a special Elvis sandwich sometimes: You take gobs of peanut butter, sliced banana, 4 slices of bacon and drizzles of chocolate and honey, and slather between two pieces of fresh bread. Then you heat butter in a pan and fry the sandwich like a grilled cheese, until golden and crunchy on the outside. It’ll make you cry, it’s so good.

    I shall make you one. It shall become our Big Gay Island sandwich. So let it be written; so let it be done.

    @ Susan: Assuming we make it to BGI this summer! Regardless, I’ll show up when you least expect, begging for “the Elvis.”
