It’s TGIF again. And that means it’s the day when we spread a little bacon-love all around the Internet. Here are some of my favourite bacon things – recipes, tumblr posts, just plain wackiness – that have popped up in the last week or so. Pick up your bacon-eating fork (I know you have a special one!) and join us in eating our way through this week’s bacony links.
Nom Nom Paleo Bacon T-Shirt
I think the Paleo diet is currently my mostest favourite diet EVAH. Here is a great t-shirt by Nom Nom Paleo: the Deadlift Girl thinking only of steak and bacon. I love it! Clearly, there need to be more bacon-centric diets and related clothing. If Nom Nom Paleo is listening, I just want you to know that I am a size medium, and my favourite colour is blue.
Bacon and Egg Burger
Well, it’s not actually a bacon burger – they are using a strange form of sausage that has been stripped of its casing. But nothing is stopping you from making it a bacon burger, and then putting an egg on top, now is there? Please do so, and then tell us how right I am about everything, but mostly this.
Spicy Bacon Spaghetti
YumSugar gives us this recipe for spicy bacon spaghetti. As the recipe reminds us, “Just because you’re short on time doesn’t mean you shouldn’t make your own pasta sauce!” It’s why I always keep some canned tomatoes and bacon on hand. A bacon-y pasta sauce will always save a busy cook’s bacon. (Yeah, I said it.)
So. There’s a new bacon video game in town. I’m not quite sure what it does. This is a brief description: “The game starts with DeathSpank in a city called Spanktopia, where he sets out on a quest to find the Fires of Bacon.” Okay! I think we’ll stop there. The Baconing. Hrmmm.
Bacon-Wrapped Stuffed and Grilled Jalapeno Peppers
When I did my wrap-up of BBQ recipes yesterday for Bacon Rub, I forgot about this one: a recipe for bacon-wrapped jalapeno peppers. Holy Hannah, does this look delicious! And the peppers are jammed with various types of cheeses. If you didn’t know, I am thinking of changing my first name to “Various Types of Cheeses And.” You know, so that people will call me “Mr Various Types of Cheeses And Back Bacon.” I think it will roll off the tongue. Or at least sound delicious.
Quick and Easy Sauteed Corn with Bacon and Scallions Recipe
This recipe could easily sit on top of the red and white checkered tablecloth next to those bacon-wrapped stuffed and grilled jalapeno peppers. In fact, I advise you to do this for the next BBQ and report back on all of the happy and satisfied BBQ fans.
Do Not Take Great Grammy Bee’s Bacon
Do not! Does she look like she wants you to take her bacon? I thought not!
