the first time i met my FAVORITE vegan person on earth.. they were in the process of using a giant Wok to cook probably 4-5 pounds of bacon at one time... (real bacon)

I took over for them.. and 50 pounds of cooked 'real' bacon later I was offered a slice of the Fake Vegan Bacon to taste... and let me tell ya! it wasnt so bad...

Just made bacon-wrapped stuffed jalapenos today. They are riduclously good! Will most definitely be making these on playa next year. And they are really simple...

Mix 1 package light cream cheese (it's a little easier to spread) with 1 good teaspoon garlic powder.
Cut 12 jalapenos length-wise. Take out the veins and seeds (I kept in some of the vein because I like the heat.)
Spread the cream cheese mix inside the jalapenos. Don't over-load them, they expand a little when cooking.
Wrap each pepper in 1/2 strip of bacon.
Bake on a cookie sheet in a 425 degree oven for about 20-25 minutes. Keep an eye on them so the bacon doesn't burn.
They are just as good cold.

Landhaus is a partnership between Matthew Lief, a chef, and Jakob Cirell, a butcher from Arcadian Pastures farm. They launched their farm to sandwich business this summer at the Smorgasburg in Williamsburg. Thick slabs of grilled bacon, on a stick or in a BLT, quickly became Landhaus’s signature.

You can find Landhaus selling sandwiches and other treats at the Brooklyn Flea and Smorgasburg. You can also try the recipe yourself, special to the WG from Matthew Lief himself, here it is.

1 2lb piece of skin-on smoky slab bacon
2 large sprigs of rosemary
3 sprigs of thyme
2 tbls smoked paprika
1 tbls fennel seeds
1 tsp salt
Black pepper grinder
3 tbls olive oil
Good quality maple syrup

I recommend making the bacon a day before you want to use it, as it is much easier to work with when it has chilled completely. Once the bacon is roasted it can be browned and used anywhere you would like thick delicious chunks of tender bacon: sandwiches, scrambled eggs, clam chowder, on macaroni and cheese—the sky is the limit.

1. Preheat your oven to 300 degrees and set a pan of water in the bottom under the lowest rack

2. Using your hand remove the skin from the bacon, but do not discard it

3. Using a sharp knife, score the fat on top of the bacon

4. Grind some black pepper over the bacon fat

5. Place the herb sprigs on top of the scored fat and drizzle some water and the olive oil over the herbs and bacon

6. Place the bacon skin over the herbs

7. Wrap the slab of bacon tightly in plastic wrap, using several layers to form a parcel

8. Wrap the plastic covered bacon tightly in foil

9. Place the slab of bacon directly on the rack over the pan of water

10. After one hour at 300 degrees, turn the oven down to 250 and let the bacon cook for 3 more hours

11. While the bacon is roasting, put the paprika, fennel, and salt in your spice grinder and grind to a fine powder

12. Carefully remove the bacon from the oven (it may drip juices) but do not unwrap it yet.

13. Allow the parcel to cool on your countertop to room temperature before placing in the fridge

14. When your bacon has completely cooled, remove from the package (either discard the skin or save it for making soup or a dog snack). [There will be a translucent golden gel. This is the nectar of the gods and will add amazing flavor to anything you use it on.] Remove the herbs and discard them

15. Slice your bacon as thick as you like—mine usually ranges from 1/4″ to 1/2″ thick

16. Heat up your charcoal grill or a cast iron grill pan till it is raging hot.

17. Brown the bacon on each side till it is slightly charred

18. Slice bacon into bite size pieces, sprinkle with the spice mix and a little drizzle of the maple syrup

Your guests will love you forever.

Bigdane those looks amazing. Is there a recipe for those that you wouldn't mind sharing? I recently had duck bacon and I have to say that it was REALLY good. Very meaty and the flavor of the duck fat was awesome.

I had something like that myself it was awesome though I'm not sure it technically qualifies as bacon...

Heres the recipe...
Maple Buttermilk Bacon Cookie
Prep: 8 large or 12 medium slices of bacon; cooked, drained, and cooled.
Ingredients
½ cup unsalted butter, softened
¾ cup sugar
1 large egg
1 Tablespoon pure maple syrup
½ cup buttermilk
1¾ cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon baking powder
½ teaspoon salt
8-12 pieces of cooked bacon
Instructions
Cream butter and sugar. Mix in egg, maple syrup, and buttermilk.
Stir together and mix into above. Crumble bacon and fold into the dough.
Scoop or drop rounded Tablespoon size cookies 2″ apart on a parchment lined or nonstick baking sheet.
Bake at 375° for 10-12 minutes, or until bottoms are pancake gold.
Let sit for a couple of minutes and transfer to a cooling rack.
Top with either Maple Butter Frosting: 4 Tablespoons softened butter, 2 Tablespoons pure maple syrup, 1 cup powdered sugar, mixed well.
Or
Maple Cream Cheese Frosting: ¼ cup cream cheese, ¼ cup softened butter, 1 Tablespoon maple syrup, 1½ cups powdered sugar, mixed well.

I have come across a site that has so many bacon treats. They put bacon in cookies, muffins, bread, chocolates, and various other things. I am thinking I am going to test them out and if they are good I will be loaded with bacon treats at the burn!! :twisted:

Bacon & Blueberry pancakes

Postby Foxfur » Sun Jul 22, 2012 8:08 am

I devised a new weapon in my arsenal against hunger:
Bacon & Blueberry pancakes!

Bacon & Blueberry Pancakes.jpg


Here's the formula...

Whip up a batch of your favorite pancake batter. Add 1/4 to 1/2 tsp of onion powder.
Pour pancake batter into yer pan in typical pancake amounts.
as soon as pancakes have been poured, place halved bluberries and bits o' crumbled bacon into the batter.
Turn when you normally do. Press the cakes down for a second or two to embed the bits o' tasties.
Evacuate cakes to a plate and dowse with syrup.
Put 'em in yer foodhole!
