Food Thread: Bacon...It's Not Just For Dessert [CBD]

bacon2.jpg

Bacon-wrapped anything is good. Even dates, not my favorite food, are edible when nestled inside a strip of luscious, fatty crispy pig belly. Not great....just edible. For God's sake, dates are a fruit, or a vegetable, or something.

But some foods need more cooking than others, so how do you wrap them in bacon and get crispy, or at least cooked bacon at the end? This ain't rocket surgery; just precook the bacon to the point just before it gets crispy, so it's pliable enough to wrap around scallops or bunches of asparagus or filet mignon or hot dogs or whatever. Just let it cool a bit before you pick it up, otherwise you will singe your fingers (like I did last night).

Bacon is a meme around here...maybe even the urmeme. But it is a great addition to food as a subtle flavoring. I often chop up a few ounces of bacon and render it for the fat to cook vegetables for a mirepoix (The Trinity in Cajun-speak) or to add a bit of smokiness and richness to pretty much anything. I have a great minestrone recipe (I have posted it here before) in which I use bacon as a base. Those crunchy little bits left after the fat renders are not a bad thing either!

And the variety of bacon available to us is fantastic. It ranges from Italian pancetta...which is really just the simplest bacon; cured but not smoked....to heavily smoked and spice versions.

Yes, this is exactly who you think it is.

This is a fascinating study in exactly how stupid people can be. The sentiment is obvious: hunger -- realistically, starvation -- is a significant global issue. But as usual, the Leftist playbook requires all issues to be politicized, with the ultimate goal of pushing the body politic to the left. Unfortunately that also pushes the solutions to the left, which makes them impossible.

Just what the hell does that mean? Hunger is an issue of justice? That's leftist blather. Justice has nothing to do with it. If it did, then a judge's decision or simply passing a law outlawing hunger would go a long way to feeding the world. Let's get the U.S. Supreme Court involved! Maybe a unanimous decision that hunger is illegal according to the Constitution would miraculously fill the bellies of those starving North Koreans and West Africans.

Oh, and charity is a necessary component of a civilized society, but as we have observed since the Great Society, it is imperative that it be temporary, otherwise we get that nasty little unintended consequence of more hunger and more poverty. But once again, the Leftist playbook calls for charity as an end unto itself, as a function of government, and most of all as a tool to pacify and control the masses.

Here are the facts: The world has the capacity to produce enough food to feed everyone. But political considerations have dwarfed the efforts of the hungry to feed themselves. Collectivization is the most obvious error, followed by that peculiar brand of authoritarianism unique to Africa. But just look at the catastrophe that is the Central Valley of California to see how political decisions driven by progressive politics can overwhelm a thriving agricultural area.

ENGLISH CRUMPETS

Crumpets are great, with a weird but pleasing texture. They are also stupidly expensive. And, luckily, fairly easy and fun to make.

Ingredients:


  • 3 T. warm water
  • 1 pkg. yeast
  • 1 tsp. sugar
  • 1/2 C. milk
  • 4 T. butter, divided
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1 1/2 C. flour
  • 1 egg

Directions:

Combine water, yeast and sugar. Let stand until bubbly, about 5 minutes.
Heat milk, 1 tablespoon of the butter and salt in a saucepan over low heat just until warm. Add to yeast mixture.
Add 1 cup flour to yeast mixture and beat until smooth, about 2 minutes on medium speed of mixer. Beat in egg.
Add remaining flour and beat until smooth.
Cover batter with plastic wrap and let rise in a warm place until doubled in bulk, about 1 hour.

Stir down batter and let rest for 5 minutes.

Meanwhile, melt remaining butter in a saucepan over low heat. Skim off foam and discard milky solids from bottom of saucepan. Brush bottom of a skillet with melted butter. Brush insides of four crumpet rings or 3-inch round cookie cutters with butter and place rings in skillet.
Heat skillet over medium heat. Spoon about 2 tablespoons batter into each ring. Cook until batter begins to bubble on top and is lightly browned on bottom, about 2 minutes. Remove rings.
Turn English Crumpets over. Cook until lightly browned on bottom and done in centers. Can be served warm or split and toasted before serving.

3 Salt and sweet go together. Bacon is salty. That's why bacon and vanilla milk shakes taste good as do salted peanuts and ice cream. So, it follows that bacon and dates would taste good, too. In fact, bacon tastes very good with anything. Must be the salt and fat.

Name one food that bacon doesnt enhance.

My local food purveyor had filet mignon on sale for a ridiculous price. But I cooked it rare/medium-rare. No way that bacon would have been good without some precooking.

I seared it on both sides, which didn't touch the bacon, then finished it in a hot oven for about four minutes....not long enough to cook the bacon.

Yes, that's the recipe and I also altered the recipe slightly to reduce the sweetness. Instead of using chocolate chip cookies I always used a plain chocolate thin cookie normally found close to the ice cream display and these are frequently used to make stacked chocolate desserts with whipped cream.

Also doubling the coffee liquor from 1/4 cup to 1/2 cup for the basic recipe was helpful, and when doubled in my adaptation it became 1 cup of liquor.

Yummy!

Cook bacon, make a taco with bacon as the filling? I have no idea what I'm talking about.

You could always do a bacon weave and then use that as the tortilla. Might be a good idea.

Huevos rancheros, plus cheese and bacon bits in a taco shell, would be yummy.

Naturally it has long since closed. But I may just have to make that for breakfast tomorrow for my family. Mmmm.

I have to wonder if another
unmentioned "unexpected" outcome of taking in masses of immigrants +
Obama's general destruction of our economy, will be that America will
lose a big chink of its farming capabilities. How do we recover from
that kind of loss?
------------
I have some answers for you there Lizzy.

1. We're not supposed to, "fundamental transformation" and all that.
2. Farming will be re-labeled as a skill "Americans no longer will do" after the last independent farmers are broken by tax debt and transportation costs.
3. According to most of the urban know-it-all types who think food magically appears at their boutique stores, we should all be organic locovore vegans. Anything that matters to the real business of farming is beyond their comprehension.

Posted by: Lizzy at October 04, 2015 04:41 PM (NOIQH)

96 I bake my bacon now. Instead of standing over a sizzling skillet, I lay out strips on a layer of foil on a cookie pan (spray a bit of over spray to keep the strips from sticking) and put it in the oven to bake at 350 to 360 for between 15 - 30 minutes.

You can control very exactly how done the bacon is, clean up is easy (no it doesn't spit bacon oil all over the inside of the oven) and you can do more than one tray at a time.

I've also found that using Ice Tongs instead of the bigger ones works better for picking up the hot bacon. Put them into a plate layered with paper towels to absorb the grease. Don't leave them too long or they'll stick to the paper towel.

Bacon! The real Breakfast of Champions.

The only downside (at least, used to be) was that an oven full of bacon would set off my fire alarm. Not burnt, just enough smoke when removing the pans to let 'em cool.

Maybe you've got it too hot? Or too close to the bottom?

At 350, my oven doesn't smoke and I never leave them longer than 30 minutes because they're crispy crispy by then.

Once they're crisp, burning is only a few minutes away.

In fact take them out just before they're crisp and once you drain them, they'll be just right. (they keep cooking)

This week I fussed around with different mushroom "sauces." (Sauce aux Champignons) For the steaks we grilled out, etc. Or, just as a side dish.

The mushrooms were looking so fresh, I bought 3 varieties and experimented. Port and Mushroom, the various methods for Sauce Duxelles (chopped mushroom sauce), etc.

Usually, when I'm in a hurry, I just saute them in a combination of butter and/or olive oil, with a bit of lemon juice.

I do like reducing some port, or red wine, and finishing off with balsamic vinegar and herbs, though - it just takes a bit longer. Last night I added some shallots and thyme sprigs from my garden.

117 Well done should only be used for suspect meat when you're starving.

Rare's a bit too bloody for my taste but medium or medium rare is about right. Just a bit pink in side and still juicy.

125 I cook bacon at a goldilocks temperature of 360 degrees on parchment paper on a cookie sheet. 12 to 15 minutes depending on thickness. Also, buy lots of bacon when it on sale, divide into portions, and freeze. Frozen and quick thawed bacon (microwave one minute) is indistinguishable from fresh. The way bacon varies in price from week to week is one of the wonders of capitalism. The past six months I've spent as little as 1.99 to as much as 4.99 per pound.

For some unfathomable reason the 1.99 a pound bacon is the tastiest.

Gotta disagree with this.

Dates nestled in bacon then cooked till the bacon's crispy and then-

(Here comes the secret ingredient!)

drizzled with good quality basamic vinegar.

Makes an excellent cocktail snack.

183 Bocaditos Espanoles (there's a tilde over the n)

6 slices thick-cut bacon, cooked and crumbed
2 cups lightly packed grated Manchego cheese
1/2 cup cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup dried tart cherries, chopped
1/3 cup toasted almonds, roughly chopped
1 tsp smoked paprika
1/2 tsp salt
24 purchased phyllo cups (in freezer section next to pie crusts)

Combine bacon, Manchego cheese, cream cheese, cherries, almonds, paprika, and salt in a food processor and pulse until blended but not smooth ((I've cheated and just mixed it in a big bowl)). You should see little bits of the ingredients. Refrigerate until cold.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Roll mixture into 1-inch balls; put one in each phyllo cup and bake for 10 minutes. Remove, let stand 10 minutes, and serve warm.

I have a pot of my Mom's Albondigas Soup recipe cooking on the stove right now. Love this stuff.

Albondigas Soup

3 tablespoons olive oil
1 onion, medium size, chopped
1 clove garlic, minced tomatoes, 1 cup peeled and chopped or 4 oz. sauce
3 quarts of liquid, about half of it beef stock and part water so it won't be too salty or use low sodium beef stock
2 lbs. of lean ground beef, max 15% fat
1/2 cup of long grain rice
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground pepper
2 eggs, slightly beaten
2 tablespoons finely chopped mint leaves
1 1/2 cups carrots, pre-cook
3/4 cup frozen peas
Saute onions and garlic in olive oil, add tomatoes or sauce and beef stock. Heat to boiling point.
Mix ground beef, rice, salt, pepper, egg, and mint. Form into small meatballs. Drop into boiling broth.
Cover tightly and cook 30 minutes, don't uncover during cooking, make sure it is simmering.
Add pre-cooked carrots, adding them with meatballs will overcook them. Add the frozen peas, stir and serve in several minutes, peas will cook.

Juan Ellis' tv ad is well-produced, I'll say that. It's a good ad.

He's running on fiscal conservatism. That's it. Nothing else. That's what the Republican party wants to brand itself as: The Fiscal Conservative, Pro Business party. Nothing Else.

But they're not even fiscally conservative; they're big government. It's all bullshit. Juan Ellis is indeed the Face Of The New Republican Party.

296 I posted this a few weeks ago, sorry for the double read. I think this is worth it. My wife and I got an ap at one of our favorite restaurants, Millionaire's Bacon and Deviled Eggs. I got curious about making the bacon portion, and it's stupid easy: Pack thick cut bacon with brown sugar after you pat it dry. One variation is to add red pepper flakes. Then broil as usual. You get a caramelized bacon that is really a treat. It pairs beautifully w/deviled eggs.
BUT, here's the best part: We typically drain the bacon fat into a ramekin and freeze it til solid for trash disposal, or using as a base for meat sauce. Well, the drippings from the Millionaires bacon separated into a 2 phase substance. The top part was bacon fat. The bottom was a smokey, mild pork flavored caramel sauce that was insanely good. We heated it and poured over vanilla ice cream. It would be an incredible standalone product.

Something was amiss, I could tell right away.
"Mah zeh?" I asked politely.
She seemed to notice me for the first time as obviously an American. "Zeh 'steak lavan'", she offered, helpfully.
"'Steak lavan'?!? That's a pork chop chop!", I ejaculated.

316 Let me come here to rant. But first, mmm, bacon.

Next, a friend - a Catholic - posted this thing on Facebook. It combined all of the worst things of Facebook politics, ever.

It was a picture of Kareem Abdul Jabbar and a quote about the Founding Fathers and separation of church and state and what they meant by it, and this was a rebuke of that clerk in Kentcuky. And even better, it was a post shared from the American Humanist Association.

So. Many. Things. Wrong.

First, an old retired basketball player. Because argument from authority or some shit, right? Always trust basketball players for your history lessons!

Second. our Founding Fathers did not create separation of church and state but rather enshrined freedom of religion in our First Amendment. And some atheists are pimping this, saying, serious you guys, the Founding Fathers, they wanted a country that was exactly like OUR agenda!

But here is what continues to gall me. This week we are sharing what atheists have to say? Because that shitstain motherfucker in Oregon was one of theirs and he was deliberately killing Christians, and they think they can lecture us on how things are supposed to be? That the First Amendments is a prohibition on religion, or worse yet, it imposes the state religion of atheism on all of us?

Seriously?

That other shitstain in Charleston went to a church and killed people at Bible study, and we had to obliterate history because he had a Confederate flag license plate on his car?

How about, atheists, a nice cup of shut the fuck up? How about you start apologizing for the climate of hate you have created?

Rant, off.

326 The phrase separation of church and state arose from a letter by Thomas Jefferson to the Danbury Baptist Association. It is not in the Consitution.

327 Those are appropriate rants; I'm unclear whether the shooter in OR was an Atheist or a member of an occult group called the "Left Hand Path" because if someone was an actual Atheist they wouldn't say to Christian "I'm sending you to God" or that Satan was going to welcome the shooter.


But it is, of course, an annoying thing that some progressives always get this wrong about the separation of Church and State.-that it isn't in the Constitution and doesn't mean what they think it means.

And the Confederate Flag-Its an obvious attempt to try to destroy history.

Columbia is a monumental mess right now. No way for people who live in the suburbs and work downtown to get there. The bridges are washed out or covered with water. Broken dams, businesses floating away, hundreds and hundreds of vehicles under water, roads washed out or under water and to make matters worse there are high winds forecasted for tonight. My son, who works downtown can work some remote from his computer, that is, unless power goes out.

331 So I have a good bacon-y recipe.

Take three slices of bacon and slap them on the bottom of a crock pot.

Take a pork butt. Put it on top of the bacon.

sprinkle on some garlic and hawaiin pink salt.

cook about 18 hours on low.

Shred. Gobble. Swoon.

Add some pineapple juice, 1 tbs of soy, a few cloves of smashed garlic, and half a chopped onion = better.

Smoke it on a grill for 20 min before the crock = insane

It was the best photo I could find that was free to use. But I agree, that bacon is a bit on the overdone side.

I find that my taste in bacon is trending towards less crispy. I wonder if that is a function of better bacon? American bacon is definitely better than when I first started cooking it.....

348 But, you know what-as annoying as these things are it's good to pray for the fundamentalist Atheists because the either must have been very hurt by organized religion or their self esteem is rather low or both, because why else (if you didn't believe in God) would you feel a puerile need to put up statues of Satan with the theme of "Satan loves the little children" just to stick your finger in the eye of religious conservatives? They don't target Mosques or Muslims. Normal Atheists just go about their businessl living their lives feeling no need to believe in God without these sorts of tactics. But often the militant Atheists seem to have a God without admitting it. It's the God of progressive politics which will usher in utopia. Do they people sound very happy to you? They don't to me or they wouldn't have to do the "Na na na na na" routines.

That's wionderful. I have never heard of that name being used outside of Scripture, This portion of psalm 81-headed by the name Asaph- seems appropriate:

Sing for joy to God our strength;
shout aloud to the God of Jacob!
2 Begin the music, strike the timbrel,
play the melodious harp and lyre.

Apparently, Doctors without Borders has been in constant contact, giving the Afghan government and the military their GPS location for months. And apparently, the Taliban know this too, and have occuppied ground very close to the hospital operated by Doctors without Borders.
It is also the duty of neutrals to protect their neutrality, lest they get into these kinds of situations. My guess is that they are angry at the US Air Force, but terrified of the Taliban.
