Do y'all like to wrap stuff in bacon? Steacks? Shrimp? Jalepenos? Around here, everything is bacon wrapped!

Haven't tried wrapping anything in bacon myself, but I've had it when eating out and it's fabulous.

I do save the bacon grease and occasionally use it in cooking, like with greens or something.

I'm in CA and we don't have any WF or anything like it here. Weird huh? But we do have a TJs now, I'll have to check. I'll check at the groc store too. Thanks!


So I had a turkey bacon sandwich for lunch, only 2 measly strips of bacon.
The bacons at my TJs are nitrite/nitrate free, and CA often has more options than those of us further east. Their turkey bacon is actually pretty good. I was pleaseantly surprised when I Demo'd it.

Show the picture with the chicken neck, so my craving will go away.

I thought of this thread when I was reading the article. I am vegetarian so you all can enjoy the bacon for me.

This thread keeps reminding me of my beloved, discontinued bacon bbq cheeseburger from Rally's. Bacon, onion rings, and bbq sauce on a cheeseburger, what more could a girl ask for?

Oh yeah! My husband has me wrap bacon around shrimp and stick it on skewers. Then he grills it.
My mom used to buy bacon and filet from an award winning butcher when I was in high school. She wrapped the filet with the bacon. The few times I've tried making that I burned the bacon, but the filet was perfection.
Mmmm. Now that I think about it, the filets were on sale in February, for Valentine's Day. I'll have to watch for the sale and make this for my family this month.

Lol, that's the recipe I posted yesterday. I'd really love to try this.

I know a woman who covers her Thanksgiving turkey in bacon strips. No seasoning or anything. Just bacon. She claims her turkey comes out deliciously perfect every year.

Haha, I wanted to say the same thing. I would have thought that seven pages on bacon would have devolved into a fight about how turkey bacon shouldn't even be mentioned, or how putting bacon in the microwave is blasphemy, or there'd be discussion on some horrible freak accident involving the frying of bacon. Color me surprised.

Vegetarian here, so I won't be reading this thread to see of this was posted. But out of the generosity of my own heart, thought I'd share:

http://www.nytimes.com/2009/01/28/di...o_interstitial

OK, read a teensy bit and see that about 18 people posted that before me.

Sairis: I do have a bacon frying accident story. I was pouring the grease over the fence (we live int eh country & that's what you do) and on my way out the door, I spilled the pan of hot grease on my leg. That was when I was like 15. I still have the scars.

Shellibean, I bet you still eat bacon. Even with the scars...it's just so so worth it, isn't it?

Oh, did I mention that I love bacon? Cos I do!!!
