Entries in bacon (6)



I'm well aware that the idea of mixing chocolate and bacon together is repulsive. And if you've ever tried one of those bacon smoothies, you'll probably think the idea of bacon and ANYTHING sweet is filthy. But my friends, you'd be wrong. There's just something about the way sweet compliments salty/savory that can't be beat. I understand if you're still a bit hesitant to believe me, so let me show you what I'm talking about.

First, the ingredients:

1. Bacon (I went with maple bacon so that my house would smell like maple all day).

2. Chocolate topping (I'm a fan of the Dolci Frutta brand).

3. Did you think you need more than chocolate and bacopn for chocolate covered bacon?


Now, here be your instructions:

1. Fry up that bacon son. The more crisp and smokey the better. Trust me.

2. Allow the bacon to dry on top of a paper towel on a plate.

3. Once the last piece of bacon is cooked, start heating up the chocolate. Usually you want to heat for 30 seconds, then stir, then heat... until it's creamy and lump-free

4. Dip that bacon in that chocolate. If necessary, get a spoon and drizzle choco goodness on top.

5. Wait for your treats to dry. If you'r eimpatient, pop them in the fridge for a few minutes.

6. Put it in your mouf.

See, Jamie likes it, and so do I.

And there you have it my friends, chocolate covered bacon done right. It's smokey, it's sweet, it's crisp and creamy. It's so dang good. Try it for yourself, you won't be disappointed. 


The Counter.

Have you ever heard of The Counter? Better question; Have you ever eaten at the counter? If you have then pat yourself on the back and relish in the memory of that delicious burger you ate. That is if you ate a burger, they offer more than just burgers. For those of you that don't know about The Counter or know about it and have yet to enjoy their offerings, listen up because this next part's for you. The Counter is a restaurant that offers options. They give you a traditional menu that you can order off of, but the true options come on the 'Build Your Own Burger' menu. It is exactly what you think it is, you build your own burger. You get to choose your burger, your cheese, your toppings, your sauce(s), and your bun. Sounds amazing right? Well it is. 

The Counter includes everyone. They will leave no man or woman's stomach aching in with hunger pains. They offer beef, chicken, turkey, veggie and whatever the market selection is (which can be anything from pork to seafood). There is no excuse to not come and enjoy The Counter. Creatation is encourage and you may even name your creation if you feel it's deserving. Pineapple Express if you were wondering. That's what the name of my burger up top with the grilled pineapple is called. I went with a 1/3 lb. beef patty top with grilled pineapple, grilled onions, a lettuce blend and soy ginger glaze on a hamburger bun. Smart. 

The only warning I give to you is choose wisely. Think your selections through. Don't just start checking boxes. Really take the time and make sure that each and every one of your choices will compliment the next. Remember, at one point, this is going to be eaten by you so make it good. With that being said, don't be afraid to experiment. I know I just kinda told you to play it safe, but that's boring. I'm not saying go crazy and get weird with it, but definitely try some things you would never think to try. Don't be afraid to ask you waiter or waitress, they are there to help you on your journey and will steer you in the right direction. 

Get over there fast my friends. Go enjoy a taste of greatness.

Homemade J-Dawgs.

So I was doing my grocery shopping the other day on an empty stomach, and while normally this is a mistake, it paid off in a big way this time. Scientists have proven that living in the Provo/Orem area means that on any given week you are 100% likely to experience 1-7 cravings for J-Dawgs in your mouth. For me, this was one of those seven-day craving weeks and something had to be done. So naturally, I purchased some weiners and buns, scooped up some 'bread and butter pickles', and made a quick to stop at J-Dawgs on the way home to snag the final ingredient: J-Dawg Sauce. It was on! 

I'll admit, the first attempt...not so good. I mean I had all the pieces to the puzzle at my fingertips, but for some reason the final product was not as beautiful as I had imagined. I tried to move on with my evening, drowning my sorrows in chips and Dr. Pepper, but I couldn't shake that feeling of remorse. A few days went by. It was 'eating' away at me (see what I did there? Puns are fun). Finally, I couldn't take it anymore, it was time for round two. Changes had to be made. This time I went all out. And this time, it was a success. I have compiled the recipe for you fellow dripcult followers so that you never have to experience the feeling of defeat that comes from a less-than-perfect J-Dawg.

Step 1: Fry up some bacon

Step 2: Spread some buttery goodness on the buns

Step 3: Simultaneously grill the buns and cook the weiners. This minimizes cool off time of the ingredients while allowing the bacon to de-geasify

Step 4: Wrap the dogs in the bacon like a dauchsund with a scarf

Step 5: Pre-sauce the buns which have now become golden brown with a subtle crispness

Step 6: Apply bread and butter pickle slice and bacon-wrapped dog on the bun

Step 7: Add desired level of sauce. I reccomend saucing the crap out of it. Be a Sauce Boss.

Step 8: Consume, and drift off into flavorland.

Stay hungry my friends.
