One of my favorite bloggers, Daughter Number Three, recently posted this photo and called it "a bacon fat travesty." But I say it is the best food porn photo I have seen all week! I may even have to tape this picture up in my crate.
It got me thinking about bacon. OK, I have at least a thousand brain cells devoted to thinking about bacon 24/7. But, if turkey could be thus improved, what else might be out there?
This is pretty straight forward: a pork loin wrapped in bacon. Actually, it is a Raspberry Chipotle Marinated Spiral Stuffed Pork Loin with a Bacon Lattice ... if you are getting as hungry as I am looking at this hunka wonder!
Here is good way to get some servings of fruit. (That's an apple pie under all that delightful bacon.) Personally, I prefer the one on the left.
How about the Bacon Explosion: a football-sized pork dish that is smoked or baked consisting of bacon wrapped around a filling of spiced sausage and bacon bits? It may be a bit high in calories for the average couch potato. But it could fuel a gal like me for hours at the dog park!
But the pièce de résistance is, of course, the thoughtful application of bacon to Roast Squirrel. I know, I know, how can you improve on Nature's perfect food? By adding BACON, duh...
Nature's perfect food indeed...
