this is a lot of bacon

This is 7.5 pounds of bacon. I couldn't hold the package up with one hand to take the picture so I balanced it on top of all the other 7.5 pound packages of bacon.

    I am suddenly salivating. Remind me to ask you for your brown-sugar bacon recipe...

    Mmm bacon.

    The brown sugar bacon was a Martha Stewart recipe, seen here (watch the video to see her mildly complain about the bacon prep not being in place, ah, I miss the old Martha).

    I should warn you - after making all that sugar bacon my oven still smokes every time I turn it on.

    Mmm bacon nirvana. That reminds me of the Top Chef episode where Tre made bacon-wrapped-shrimp on grits for all the people coming out of the bar at closing time. Yowsa. recipes.bravotv.com/top_chef/season_3/episode_7/baconwrap...
    (On a side note, I also miss the old Martha.)

    it is a lot of bacon, but not *too much* bacon, because such a thing does NOT exist.

    I think I'm in love.

    My arteries just gurgled.

    That's like a baby. Like the weight of a baby. You could give birth to that bacon. Welcome to the future. 2KBacon.

    Oh man, we were talking about sugar bacon last night. This must be tried.

    Ovens be damned!

    Oh. My. Lord. My husband would weep with happiness if he saw this package.

    I made some of that brown sugar bacon one time when I had my cousin and her husband over for dinner. I made a bunch and it was absolutely devoured. My cousin was pregnant at the time, so I'm curious to see if her baby will show an interest.

    I saw the thumbnail and thought, "That is NOT a huge package of bacon is it?" and was delighted to see that it was!

    Now the question is, did you buy it? and if so, and if you survive to tell the tale, what will you make with it?

    May I suggest Bacon Mat BLTs?

    Bacon Mat! That's amazing.

    p.s. I found this at a Safeway grocery store. I'd never seen this there before. It was a pretty exciting find.

    I miss the old Martha too. Remember when she'd have her mother on? My mom and I would watch together and she'd always say, "if you ever talked to me that way on TV...."
  • ascheelemorgan 8y

    That is a lot of bacon!
  • Nazila 8y

    Erm, I'm thinking blts.
