Oh, For the Love of Bacon!

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...
