The bacon they want you to use in this recipe is Wright Brand Hickory Smoked Bacon. We plan to review that this week, so you might want to wait before you buy. If it’s anything like the Applewood it should be pretty good.
This was Sean’s first week on the show since he came back from England. During the show there was a tornado inducing storm brewing outside. We had a rush a few segments to make sure we got everything in before a possible power outage.
We also ate and enjoyed Wright’s Brand Applewood bacon on the show. We both thought it was amazing and can’t wait to try one of the other 3 flavors next week!
Before I share this link with you I just want to say, I usually don’t read Women’s Day Magazine. I was recently sent a link to a story they did on 10 Innovative Ice Cream Flavors. Guess what was on that list, Candied Bacon Ice Cream!
Now here is the interesting part, the photo that Women’s Day is using is not of Candied Bacon Ice Cream. It is in fact a photo of Bacon Corn Dog Ice Cream, here is the proof. Also, further proving Women’s Day has no idea what it’s doing when it comes to bacon, the bacon in the photo they used is not even candied.
If you want to see what real Candied Bacon Ice Cream looks like check out David Lebovitz’s blog. He posted a great recipe and fun commentary about how he made it.
At this year’s Blue Ribbon Bacon Festival I tried bacon ice cream and it was amazing. The bacon added something savory to the ice cream, kind of like peanuts or salted pretzels. I also had candid bacon as a topping on ice cream, which has a totally different flavor and texture.
If you had bacon ice cream before, let us know what you thought about it. I know everyone at the Blue Ribbon Bacon Festival has, so I expect a lot of comments.
Since Sean is in the UK this week I had Joey fill in as guest host. He is the guy that made the music for our intro. Joey and I talked about bacon on a stick, Chicago, and shoplifters. We also showed the worst bacon video in the world, it almost gave me the feeling to never eat bacon again. It was the “Footloose” fiasco all over again. Be careful what you watch on YouTube!
I am probably going to get in trouble for this, but here is a list of every film and/or movie Kevin Bacon has acted in. I know what your think,”I thought you hated Kevin Bacon for giving bacon a bad name”. Well the fact is I don’t hate him, I just get annoyed that every time I search or talk about Bacon he is brought up.
So to use Kevin Bacon’s popularity to my advantage I am posting this list. That way when someone uses Google looking for Kevin Bacon they will find Mr. Baconpants instead. I want to give these Kevin lovers a taste of their own medicine.
On this show Sean and I eat a strip of bacon every ten minutes. While eating our bacon I publicly thank Sean for writing his review of the new Wendy’s bacon. It seems that his review saved people from trying the low quality bacon. We also shared the Bacon Burger-Style Hot Dog recipe on the show. If you missed it you can view Aaron McCargo Jr’s recipe here.
Sadly this week Sean will not be on the show because he has a wedding to attend in the UK. I am hoping he can find a way to call in and give us a UK bacon update on the show.
Adam Wimsatt emailed me to tell me about his post over at Reelz Channel about Bacon Movie Moments. I liked the fact that he stated in the beginning of his post, that there will be no Kevin Bacon movies on the list. I feel that would have been a overly used bad joke.
I am going to list the movies for you, but you will have to check out Adams post to get the full story. He took a lot of time finding clips and transcribing dialog.
Tie Between Bacon Grabbers (1929) and Canadian Bacon (1987)
Lord of the Rings: Fellowship of the Ring (2001)
Kronk’s New Groove (2005)
Wayne’s World (1992)
Atlantis: The Lost Empire (2001)
Better Off Dead (1985) – This one is my favorite, I hope I never see bacon cooked like that!
So I Married an Axe Murderer (1993)
Again, be sure to check out the full post to get all the great bacon insight. If you know any other movie mentions of bacon feel free to share via a comment.
