ads: It’s a personal choice…
I have a new favorite commercial and it’s not a car commercial for a change:
It’s been a good season for bacon on the food blogs lately, but this Ultimate Bacon Sandwich really takes the cake. Anthony Bourdain calls bacon the “gateway protein” and a NYT article from last year has an interview with the publishers of meatpaper: “We find over and over again that bacon is the conversion meat,” Ms. Standen said. “Bacon is how vegetarians change their minds.” Even Kyle lists it as one of the reasons he didn’t convert to Islam.
Oddly enough, much as I love it, I don’t make it very often. For some reason I’m never smart enough to remember to wear sleeves when I fry it and making it in the oven is a bit more prep than I like until I get the proper pan/rack combo. I haven’t roasted a chicken in a while, and I cover the whole bird with bacon to infuse fat, so there’s a thought… 😈
