  4. No matter how old I get this is still a favorite! 👍
  5. I'm going back through some of the already posted recipes and this looks darn good! 😲
  6. 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! 😄 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. 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 cu 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 15-ish 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 two-ish minutes until crispy and caramelized. Final consistency will be like peanut brittle.
  7. Pre-heat oven to 350. Peel onions and cut into large chunks. Place in food processor with bacon and chop fine. Heat a large dutch oven, and put bacon/onion mix in hot pan. Cook until onions are soft, even a little golden. Move mixture to the edges of the pot. Salt and pepper roast. Brown on both sides in the pan, 4-5 minutes a side (medium to medium high heat works best for the onions and the meat). Add entire can of beer. Add chicken or beef stock (or water) so that liquid comes up 1/2 way on the meat. Stir the onions and bacon into the liquid. Bring to a boil on the stove top. Once it comes to a boil, cover tightly and place in the oven for 1.5 hours. Take out of oven and stir in 2 Tablespoons of mustard, and place back in oven for another 1 to 1.5 hours. Remove roast from pan and let rest on cutting board for 10 minutes. The sauce is thick in the pan. You can eat as is, or strain, add some additional stock, and make a gravy.
  8. Pre-heat oven to 400*F. Wrap 1 slice of bacon around each hot dog. Try to get it wrapped tightly. You can use tooth picks at each end of the hog dog to secure the bank. 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.
  9. I'm wondering how much tiki 🗿 stuff I can sneak into the house before Cindy notices? 🤔🤣

  12. Giant pig in blanket that weighs more than an eight-year-old child is coming to London The giant pig in a blanket will be 1000 times the size of normal ones like these (Picture: Getty) Pigs in blankets fans, listen up – a really huge sausage wrapped in bacon is coming to London next month. Yes, the Christmas favourite is going gigantic, and you can be one of 300 people to try it. This P.I.B. will weigh 25kg (about the same as an average eight-year-old child), will be about 70-80cm wide and measure over two metres in length. The average man in the UK is 1.75 metres tall so this really is a lot of pork, which will be wrapped in over 10 metres of bacon. In fact, this beast will be about 1000 times bigger than a normal chipolata. It will appear on the opening night of the four-day food festival Taste of London at Tobacco Dock, East London on 21 November. Simon Taylor is the man behind The Notorious P.I.B. (Picture: Taste of London) The giant sausage – dubbed The Notorious P.I.B. – will be created by Simon ‘The Butch’ Taylor, founder of the Surrey Hills Butchers. Guests on the first night of the festival will have a chance to enjoy a piece of The Notorious P.I.B., which will be cooked for six hours at the festival’s fire pit. Simon said: ‘I have been lucky enough to work in traditional butchery for over 25 years – that’s over 25 Christmases and a lot of pigs in blankets! ‘I couldn’t imagine a more fitting way to pay homage to each of these years than by creating this at the festive edition of Taste of London.’ Tickets for Taste of London are from £17 and £5 for children. As well as the giant P.I.B., you can expect 50 restaurants, including Berenjak, Thai barbecue masters Smoking Goat, Lewis Hamilton-backed Neat Burger with its plant-based burgers, and Bubala, which opened in September and features vegetarian Middle Eastern food.
  13. Are there no restrictions on what can be called "bacon"?!
  14. Waitrose adds vegan bacon to its stores for the first time Your vegan Full English awaits (Picture: Waitrose) Vegans who miss bacon and want an alternative to satisfy old cravings may be interested in facon – fake bacon. Waitrose has launched its first own-label facon to cater to those on a plant-based diet. You can now get your hands on smoky streaky slices made from seitan (which is made from gluten, the main protein of wheat). Waitrose is hoping to encourage non-meat eaters to grab the stuff for a vegan fry-up or a facon sandwich. The latest addition to the vegan has is said to have a rich earthy flavour and it’s been cured in maple syrup to add a hint of sweetness. The move from Waitrose & Partners comes after an increase in demand for top-quality vegan products. Waitrose reported that sales for the overall vegan category are up 35% compared to last year. And specific searches for vegan bacon on Waitrose.com have seen a 94% increase. So good news for anyone who’s been looking for it, your reward awaits. Vegan Laksa Noodles are also part of the new range (Picture: Waitrose) Other new additions to the vegan range include a mushroom & roasted garlic ravioli. There will also be three new vegan ready meals: vegetable laksa noodles, Goan vegetable curry and a roasted butternut squash vegetable bowl ‘Gill Sans’. Simona Cohen-Vida, vegan product developer at Waitrose & Partners said: ‘Making delicious, innovative and great quality vegan products is a huge part of what we do. ‘Our vegan bacon strips have been carefully smoked to get a deep rich flavour and the spices used with the seitan makes them perfect for frying. ‘Try them in a sandwich with lashings of tomato sauce or pop them on top of your favourite vegan burger for the ultimate Friday night feast.’ The vegan bacon streak should hopefully revolutionise the Full English. Because let’s face it, some folks are getting vegan versions of the classic so, so wrong. https://metro.co.uk/2019/10/17/waitrose-adds-vegan-bacon-to-its-stores-for-the-first-time-10935069/

  17. Those actually look & sound good! I wonder if the US Aldi stores will be carrying them? ?
  18. Aldi launches ‘Chilli Chubbies’ sausages infused with jalapeno, sriracha and habenero https://metro.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2019/07/PRI_76799376.jpg?quality=90&strip=all&w=1024[/img] These look delicious (Picture: Aldi) BBQ season is here and with the weather about to heat up, be prepared to get the grill out this week. To celebrate, Aldi has launched Chilli Chubbies – mini sausages infused with sriracha hot sauce or jalapeno and habenero, which are types of peppers. These sausages are hot. And best of all, they cost just £1.99 for a pack of 12. So you can feed these tasty little bites to all your friends. Each pack has four of each flavour. The habanero is likely to be the hottest as the chilli is between 100,000 and 350,000 on the Scoville heat scale, the measurement for spicy food. Jalapeno is between 2,500 and 5,000 SHU, which is still pretty spicy compared to zero SHU for a sweet bell pepper. It’s not the only sausage flavour we are excited for. The store launched mojito sausages last month so you can combine the tasty meat with your favourite cocktail. The six-pack costs £1.89 and according to the store, it’s a mix of fine British pork and smoked bacon, with a unique mix of mojito. https://metro.co.uk/2019/07/21/aldi-launches-chilli-chubbies-sausages-infused-jalapeno-sriracha-habenero-10435687/

  21. I like turkey. I like carrots. I'm not seeing the problem here. :D If they actually offered this thing for sale in their stores I'd try it.
  22. American restaurant Arby’s creates the ‘Marrot’ – a carrot made out of turkey meat Vegan alternatives to popular meat choices are all the rage right now, whether it’s KFC chicken or Ikea meatballs. Seeing the great interest in meat dupes, American fast food retailer Arby’s wanted to turn the concept on its head. So the sandwich chain has introduced ‘the Marrot’, which looks like a carrot but is made out of turkey. It hopes to start a new trend of ‘megetables’ as in food that looks like vegetables but contains beef, chicken, turkey, pork among others. ‘If they can make meat from veggies (and other stuff) we can make veggies from meat,’ said the brand in a video tutorial of the Marrot. https://metro.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2019/06/PRI_71842596.jpg?quality=90&strip=all[/img] Looks like carrot, tastes like carrot, but is made out of meat (Picture: Arby’s) Arby’s is certainly known for its multi-layer meat sandwiches which include venison, elk and duck. So the news that they’re making meat versions of vegetables won’t come as a surprise to most. What has surprised those who have tried the marrot is it’s similar carrot taste. Arby’s claims it also has all the nutritional value of the orange veg. Created by executive chef Neville Craw, the Marrot is said to have more than 30 grams of protein and boasts 70% of the recommended daily amount of vitamin A. The chef told Insider about what led to the pseudo veg: ‘Creating the Marrot was really about staying true to our brand more than anything else. ‘We really focus on how to connect with our customers and how to bring the best thing to the table.’ Insider reported that the meal had a ‘sweet maple taste with earthy, herb-filled undertones.’ https://metro.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2019/06/PRI_71842704.jpg?quality=90&strip=all[/img] Not what it looks like (Picture: Arby’s) Strangely, the folks at the joint are adamant that they will never offer plant-based options for vegans and the like. ‘The chances we will bring plant-based menu items to our restaurants, now or in the future, are absolutely impossible,’ said chef Neville. It’s a bizarre move considering sales of plant-based food in the US went up by 8.1% during the past year, topping $3.1 billion (£2.4m). The vegan cheese global market is also estimated to be worth just under $4 billion (£3.1b) by 2024. So weird flex, Arby’s. While Arby’s has restaurants in locations around parts of the world, the UK is not on the list. But it’s okay, we’ll just continue eating vegan sausage rolls, faux cheese, and fried ‘chicken’.

  23. Australian man is campaigning to get a Michelin star for his KFC https://metro.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2019/06/IMG_9810-065c.jpg?quality=90&strip=all[/img] It’s the most remote KFC in the world (Picture: Sam Edelman) As far as Michelin stars go, you would expect fancy dining and a lengthy wine list. But for Australian cook, Sam Edelman, this doesn’t seem to be a limitation. For his KFC franchise in Alice Springs, Northern Territory, Australia, he wants KFC to be ‘more than just a fast food place.’ His branch is one of the most remote in the world, as it is situated in the Outback and Sam says people travel for thousands of miles to have the chicken. He told Metro.co.uk: ‘It’s about time it got recognised as not just a fast food place. ‘We use fresh chickens that are delivered into the store everyday and hand breaded in our kitchen by our cooks. There is some skill involved.’ https://metro.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2019/06/IMG_9802-a0e6.jpg?quality=90&strip=all[/img] He has been at the franchise for almost 20 years (Picture: Sam Edelman) The 37-year-old is on a mission to get Michelin Guide to notice his restaurant as a viable contender for the coveted restaurant. Since Michelin doesn’t publish in Australia, he is going to extra lengths to get the Guide to notice him by setting up a Facebook group called ‘Kentucky Fried Chicken deserves a Michelin Star’. There are specific requirements to the process towards a Michelin star. To earn one star, a restaurant must be considered ‘a very good restaurant in its category.’ For two stars, the criteria is ‘excellent cooking, worth a detour.’ To qualify for the elusive three stars, a restaurant must serve up ‘exceptional cuisine, worth a special journey’ to which Sam said that he has no doubt he has achieved. The idea came to him when he saw a Netflix show called Street Foods and a Bangkok street vendor was awarded a Michelin star. He said: ‘There’s a show on Netflix called Street Food. A couple weeks I watched it and the first episode is about a street vendor in Bangkok who has a Michelin star. ‘Traditionally I’d always thought that the Michelin star was the peak of fine dining, you have to have a fancy wine list and spectacular dining experience. ‘There was a cut away shot that showed a KFC advertisement in there and it kinda gave me the idea. https://metro.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2019/06/IMG_9686-5f51.jpg?quality=90&strip=all[/img] A community man (Picture: Sam Edelman) ‘On a basic level, we meet the criteria. If this street vendor can get the Michelin star why can’t we? ‘My KFC in Alice Springs is in a unique position. The criteria for two stars is ‘excellent cooking worth a detour or exceptional cuisine worth a special journey’. ‘We have people who come to our KFC from 500km or 1000km away and they will expressly come in with the full intent to buy a bucket of KFC chicken while they are in town.’ And people have made journeys that both require a plane ride and block booking for a whole town given that it’s the most remote KFC in the world. He added: ‘My KFC is the most remote KFC in the world and that’s what sets me apart. I know people make a journey to come to my restaurant. I know that my team put their heart into making the best KFC they can make. https://metro.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2019/06/IMG_9779-72af.jpg?quality=90&strip=all[/img] He has owned the Alice Springs franchise for 7 years (Picture: Same Edelman) ‘I’ve had customers who have come from 1300km away. We have done a catering order for a gold mine that was in Western Australia – we’re in the Northern Territory. ‘It was AUS$1000 order. They ordered a private hire car to collect the order and take it straight to the airport. They chucked it on the plane and flew it to the gold mine. ‘The closest town is 600km from us, and they will buy around 6 buckets and buy for the neighbourhood. It’s good food accessible to everyone.’ Originally from Melbourne, Sam Edelman has been in Alice Springs for nine years, buying the business seven years ago and becoming the franchisee. https://metro.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2019/06/PRI_70889662.jpg?quality=90&strip=all[/img] Sam wants KFC to be more than a takeaway (Picture: Getty Images for KFC) He said: ‘I’ve had my franchise at Alice Springs as a franchisee for seven years and I have worked in Alice Springs in the KFC for nine years. But in about a week, I would have worked in KFC for twenty years. ‘I started as a cook when I was still at high school. ‘I think that puts us in a unique position – excellent cooking. If there was only one KFC in the world, regardless of mine or another, it would be regarded as excellent cooking so that’s where I’m going with it. ‘Good food is for everyone. Good food is not just meant to be for fine dining. So I thought, “Bucket, why not give it a go”.’ MORE: KFC’s vegan burger has sold out after its first four days MORE: What’s actually in the vegan KFC Imposter Burger?

  26. The McDonald’s bacon roll has been voted the best on the high street The roll has been voted the best (Picture: McDonald’s/Getty) The McDonald’s bacon roll has been voted the best on the high street by independent recommendation site Checkatrade. In a panel of expert tradespeople, including decorators, electricians and plumbers, the site found that the McDonald’s bacon role was the best – with nine out of ten people putting it top based on its appearance, flavour and price. The roll came top after six high street bacon rolls were tested against each other. The McDonald’s roll beat the likes of Greggs and Costa Coffee. Duncan Cruttenden, Food Development Director at McDonald’s UK&I, said: ‘The bacon roll is the breakfast of choice for millions and I am delighted to launch our new and improved version to customers across the UK and Ireland. ‘The Checkatrade feedback speaks for itself, and whether you’re a ketchup or brown sauce person, I hope our customers agree that this Bacon Roll is a great addition to our breakfast menu.’ It comes with either ketchup or brown sauce (Picture: McDonald’s) Mike Fairman, CEO of Checkatrade, commented: ‘Our trades have to go through a rigorous process to be listed on our site, making them trustworthy, reliable and recommended judges of character. ‘We knew when McDonald’s asked us to be part of this test, that our tradespeople would be the perfect people to give the seal of approval. ‘The panel had the long but enviable task of putting each roll through its paces with the McDonald’s Bacon roll getting a big thumbs up from our tradesmen and women.’ More: McDonald's The McDonald's bacon roll has been voted the best on the high street McDonald's scrapping plastic from McFlurry and salad packaging McDonald's extends breakfast hours until 11am in UK trial And Andrea Giammaria of RTEQ Ltd, added: ‘I was really surprised to see the McDonald’s bacon roll came out on top. ‘I usually head to the local café but I actually preferred the taste and texture of the McDonald’s roll in the test – the buns are really soft too which is why it scored so highly on the day – I know where I’ll be going in the mornings from now on!’ The McDonald’s roll has recently been ravamped. It is soon to feature three rashers of bacon in a sourdough-style bun, and comes with either brown sauce or ketchup. The new product will launch on the 26th June and will cost £2.79.
