I stumbled upon this tonight and it just might have the longest name of any recipe I can recall. It also sounds & looks so darn good! :D From TrunkMonkey Racing: What’s the best way to wind down after a hard day of trail building and mountain biking? Alcohol and bacon of course! And how do we combine the two into a single snack for uncomplicated gluttonous consumption? With Chippoke’s Cabin Fever Maple Whisky Bacon Grease Infused Bacon Crumble Brown Sugar Caramelized Ghost Chile Chex Mix! Just the name alone instills fear in the hearts of cardiologists everywhere! Don’t even bother trying to calculate calories or serving sizes. It’ll just depress you. Ingredients 2 x 15 oz bags Chex Mix Traditional 2 cups pecan halves (we left these out this time due to a compatriot with nut allergies) 2 pounds bacon 1 cup bacon grease 1 cup packed brown sugar 1/2 cup light corn syrup, maple syrup, or agave nectar 1 cup Cabin Fever Maple Flavored Whisky 1 teaspoon Sonoran Spice Pure Ghost Pepper Powder Right, let’s do this! Cook bacon to an almost burned crispy hard consistency. Think potato chips. Crumble bacon into 1/4″ to 1″ long chunks and set aside on paper towels. Pour bacon grease into a Pyrex measuring cup. Preheat oven to 300°F. Line three large baking trays with aluminum foil and spray with cooking spray. In one or two large bowls mix Chex Mix with pecan halves and crumbled bacon. In a two-quart saucepan heat brown sugar, bacon grease, and light corn syrup over medium heat. Stir occasionally until bubbly around the edges. Cook five minutes, stirring occasionally, and remove from heat. Stir in whisky and ghost chile powder. Pour slowly over Chex Mix and toss or lightly fold with a spatula until evenly coated. It’s go time! Spread snack mixture evenly over pans. Bake 15ish minutes at 300°F stirring every five minutes. Crank oven up to broil, swap pans from rack to rack, and cook each pan directly under the heating element for an extra twoish minutes until crispy and caramelized. Final consistency will be like peanut brittle. Cool completely, break into pieces, and serve in large bowl. Seal extras or leftovers in Tupperware to keep fresh and crispy. Absorbs moisture quickly, especially during outdoor parties.
 
Bacon and Egg Cups Ingredients: * 1 slice of your fave low-carb bread per muffin cup * 2 slices of bacon per muffin cup * 1 egg per muffin cup * 1 tbsp shredded cheddar cheese per muffin cup (optional) * Salt and pepper to taste Directions: 1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. 2. Use a cookie cutter to cut circles out of each piece of bread. 3. Grease a muffin tin and press circles of bread in the muffin cups. Place in the oven and bake for 5 minutes or until bread is slightly toasted. Remove from the oven. 4. Cook bacon in a skillet until halfway cooked (approximately 3-4 minutes). 5. Place 2 slices of bacon on top of the pieces of bread to form a cup (the bacon should cover the bread and the sides of each cup). 6. Crack an egg into each muffin cup (on top of the bacon). It helps to discard a little bit of the egg white after cracking and before pouring into the muffin cup. 7. Place in the oven and bake for 18-20 minutes or until the eggs are set. 8. Sprinkle cheddar cheese over each egg and continue to bake until cheese is melted (this step is optional). 9. Season with salt and pepper to taste and serve.
 
Bacon wrapped hot dogs is something that my Mom used to make for us when we were kids. It is a meal item that can be made a lot of different ways. The method below is one of the simplest ways and makes for a fun cooking activity that you can let your kids help with. Ingredients 8 hot dogs (8 is the the standard number that comes in a pack of hot dogs in the US) 8 slices of bacon, thinly sliced (one slice for each hot dog to be cooked; avoid the extra-thick sliced style of bacon and the breakfast oriented flavors like maple bacon) 8 hot dog buns Favorite hot dog toppings & condiments Directions Pre-heat oven to 400*F. Wrap 1 slice of bacon around each hot dog. Try to get it wrapped tightly. Place hot dogs on a parchment paper lined cookie sheet. Place cookie sheet on middle rack of 400*F oven. Bake for around 13 minutes or until the hot dogs have been browned & thoroughly cooked. Additional cooking time may be required depending upon your oven. Serving After removing from oven, place hot dogs in buns. Serve immediately to your guests allowing them to top their hot dogs with their favorite topping & condiments. Notes As the bacon cooks it will shrink and curl. To help the bacon stay on the hot dog you can optionally insert a toothpick through each end of the hot dog after wrapping it in bacon. Just be sure to remove the toothpicks before serving. If you have your kids help you wrap the hot dogs use your judgement before letting them insert the toothpicks themselves. You could have them wrap the hot dog but let an adult insert the toothpicks. Experiment! Bacon wrapped hot dogs are really easy to make so try different seasonings, different types of bacon, and different cooking techniques like putting them on your grill instead of baking them in the oven.
