Verily, it is he. Sir Francis Bacon.

Time magazine’s Josh Ozersky on sub-par bacon:

Even more depressing is the fact that these flaccid slices are found sprawling, like rotting seaweed, atop the very sandwiches that promise veritable meatgasms upon consumption — the giant, multilevel calorie bombs that you see think pieces written about.

What’s the opposite of a think piece?

Animals in their pre-bacon state

Like cupcakes could ever be more irritating. Bacon is bigger than ever! It’s so big, it’s moving on to new animals. Chicago TimeOut says that chefs are now making bacon out of veal, beef, and lamb. Nothing is safe. We actually probably will have cupcake bacon before long.

First, she poses as a chicken-raising femivore for Dolce & Gabbana:

Then we read that bacon is her favorite food.

Shut Up, Bacon, ca. 1943

From  Bears of Yosemite by M.E. Beatty:

It is certainly not advisable to place your slab of bacon under the mattress of a cot, as one lady visitor is reported to have done. Needless to say, she was rudely rolled off her cot by a bear during the middle of the night, and suffered both a loss of dignity and a slab of bacon.

Maybe it was the bacon fairy!

Eat Our Bacon Dust, Grub Street!

Thursday, July 1st, 2010

Today on Grub Street, they have a post about bacon-flavored envelopes, which they say “debuted” at the Fancy Food Show this weekend. Mais non! Also, no! As we noted back in April, they’ve been on the market a while.

The greeting cards with flavor strips are a new one on us, though. I think there are real possibilities there for baby shower flavors.

For Meat’s Sake, Dude

Friday, June 25th, 2010

I’m a carnivore and I love eating meat, but I don’t know about meat for meat’s sake; I love a bacon T-shirt as much as the next guy, but let’s get real.

Anthony Bourdain in June 11’s New York Diet on Grubstreet (which by the way is entirely too fascinating – most people really *do* eat a lot worse than me!  Yay!)

Shut Up, Bacon Odyssey

Friday, June 25th, 2010

I’ve been aware for some time of the various commercial products and recipes out there that use bacon in … let’s call them “unconventional” ways….Starting now, for however long it takes, I will be trying anything and everything with bacon or bacon flavoring that I can lay my hands on.


Shut Up, Bacon: Cheesed Off

Wednesday, June 23rd, 2010

Maybe it is the crazy week I’ve been having but what the hell? This guy bakes some cheese and calls it bacon? WHAT DARK MAGIC IS THIS?

I love bacon and i love cheese. I often throw 2 or 3 pounds of cheddar in the smoker and give it a nice hickory accent. If you want the taste of bacon but don’t want to eat bacon, try this. Heat the oven or toaster oven to 400. Line a baking sheet with foil that is then lightly sprayed with non stick spray. Lay slices of cheese in the center of the sheet pan. They don;t have to touch or overlap, just keep them close to each other. Put in oven 8-10 minutes. The cheese will almost “fry” like bacon. When the very edges start to get crispy, remove from oven and immediately pour off any accumulated grease. Let cool for a minute or two and then peel off the foil. Tastes just like bacon!

I have become so inured to gross bacon pics I couldn’t even find one for this post. Enjoy the mousie. —Snacktime

Ha! If only. But we will have a moment of Shut Up, Bacon silence today for Jimmy Dean (1928-2010).
