Valentine’s = Bacon

February 12, 2009

Yes, Saturday is Valentine’s Day. But, if you’re someone like me who really doesn’t care about the holiday, this year or ever, here’s a completely un-V-Day post. (For those of you who enjoy Valentine’s, I am dedicating this entry to JD, who sees this recipe as true love.)

Introducing Bacon Explosion



I don’t think the pictures here do it justice until you see the creation, layering and rolling of the ingredients, which include 2 pounds of thick bacon, 2 pounds of Italian sausage, a jar of your favorite barbecue sauce and a jar of your favorite barbecue rub.

Honestly, it looks like a massive heart attack, but to some men, it might just be heaven.

I don’t plan to make this recipe, but because I’m married to JD, you never know.

    Kate! Chris actually ate this horrible excuse for food at a Super Bowl party. Our friend Trey made two of them and of course the guys ate it and thought it was the best thing ever. I am just glad none of them dropped dead from a heart attack.

    What does the old bluegrass song say (I guess Kenny sings his version now too)? “Everybody wants to go to heaven, but nobody wants to die.”

    Well, if I can reach Glory by eating this Bacon Explosion, that just might be the failsafe rebuttal to that song. An excellent way to depart this world. While risking putrid blasphemy, I might just echo Simeon’s refrain, after bolting down the blessed bacon: “Now let thy servant depart in peace, for mine lips have tasted perfection.”

    I’m not going to lie…it looks ridiculous…and sort of delicious.

    :) It does look a little over the top, but it’s not as overwhelming as it looks once you eat it. It’s tasty….in moderation!

    We’ve made almsot 70 so far, mostly positive reviews! Here was our last batch for a restaurant:
