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?

Shut Up, Bacon: Cheesed Off

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
