Stop farking trying to make bacon everything.

OMG I LOVE BACON !!!111

Seriously, when will people get over this meme? Sure, bacon is tasty, but so are a number of foods that don't involve artery-clogging. I love avocados, but I find little internet camaraderie on that. Also, I'm rather fond of king crab. Cricket noises on that one too. But you mention bacon, and suddenly, everyone on the internet is a mongoloid who smashes his hands together and salivates over the prospect of getting some. I think it's intentional hyperbole.
Here's a list of bacon-including foods that are good:

Cassoulet
Bacon and eggs with hash browns

That's it. Bacon is a very limited food. Wrap a steak in it? Not if it's a good steak. It prevents proper searing and the Maillard reaction. Now, a DECENT filet mignon does not need that extra fat. Cook it hot and fast starting at room temperature or slightly above that (by heating to 110F with an immersion circulator), and suddenly you won't miss the bacon one bit.

For those of you mocking this outright because "bacon is gross on anything but a breakfast plate" I assure you that bacon and iced cream can be a fantastic marriage.

Problem: Burger King serves 'potato-based frozen Kream product' instead of iced cream, topped with god-knows-what (it's probably not even actual bacon, but a processed, pressed, rendered pork-pulp printed with RealBacon™ imagery using foodsafe ink). The 'hot fudge' is merely low-grade corn syrup with a sh*tload of FD&C Brown #4 and guar gum.

So yes, Burger King's offering is destined to be inedible. But the concept itself, when done properly - is a taste sensation.

Look, I love making homemade ice cream with the wife and kids. We get fresh bacon from the Amish at the farmers market when we can make it there on Saturdays, it's about as awesome as the deep fried pretzel-wrapped apple sausage grillers they do also. They're both awesome. Maybe they do taste good together, because I grok the sweet and salty combination. Great times.

This is just unnecessary, though. Once in awhile, a treat at home? Sure. Bacon and ice cream, however, have significantly more fat and salt than something like chocolate covered pretzels, and are well established as full components of a meal or dessert in their own rights. They don't need to be combined as a regularly accessible pile of fat deposits. It's not that it's a repulsive combination, it's that it is on par with the Quad-Stacker. Complete overkill.

The most disgusting food imaginable. And I thought nothing would top KFC bowls, which look like someone vomited into them.

Bacon wrapped meatloaf is a staple. Hush, you.

Although filet done with immersion...mmmmmmMMMMMmmmm.

In somewhat related news, I was desperately late today so I went to the McDonalds drive through for breakfast. Got Hotcakes.

With them sitting in the car next to me, I noticed something really odd. Those things...don't smell like food. They have a vaguely chemical odor. Not awful, but not something that would make you think "I should put that in my mouth".

At work I actually got a couple of coworkers to close their eyes and sniff the things. Nobody guessed that they were hotcakes. Only about half of them guessed it was edible. What the hell is in this stuff?

/csb
//also, the orange juice tasted kinda like soap
 
2012-04-13 09:06:56 AM  
Sounds like it could be tasty if made properly, at home.
No way I would ever eat at a cesspool like Burger King.
 
2012-04-13 09:14:30 AM  
Last night I had a baguette sandwich with grilled rasher bacon (read: unsmoked back bacon), Anjou pears, and Gorgonzola.

It was probably one of the best meals I've had in 2012.

I'm all for the promiscuous subversion of food norms. Bacon (and all meat for my tastes) are accents to cheaper, more sustainable, more healthful foods so...yeah. Whatever floats your boat. Only thing missing is the candied jalapeno and peanut butter ice cream that would really set that sundae off. But for the Skyfairy's sake, PLEASE just make it a 4 oz serving instead of some 22 oz round of cardiac roulette.

BurnShrike: Kurmudgeon: BurnShrike: It poisons the logical and rational portion of your brain?

Can't poison what is already faulty.
Something can't come from nothing.

Good god man, how many of those things have you eaten?!

You start off with an obvious falsehood. You certainly can poison what's already faulty. Certain medical procedures are designed to do just that, to kill off a faulty or malfunctioning body part (hyperthyroidism is an example of this)

You then continue with the assertion that something can't come from nothing. Quantum physics seems to disagree with that statement, but we'll go with it for now. Where then did God create the universe from? And indeed, where did God himself come from?

Maybe you haven't tried the right kind, but some of it is gross.......I am a fan of turkey bacon, turkey sausage, turkey ham, turkey bologna, and even turkey pastrami (eat a lot less red meat than I used to due to family history of heart disease, and helped me lose weight) the right brand is the key.

Yes, but the wording is not very funny.

Perhaps "...so good, you'll just KNOW that whole pig as a filthy animal thing is utter garbage and you'll see the true error of your skyfairy believing ways".

Has anyone mentioned how god awful Pizza Hut and Burger King are? You may as well stop a truck on it's way to the local landfill, let 50 hobos pick through it first, wait for those hobos to digest what they've eaten and then use the truck as a toilet, throw in some hepatitis and you would have replicated the food preparation area conditions of Pizza Hut and Burger King. Or for that matter any other poor food establishment. You have to have some kind of genetic palate disorder that probably makes chalk taste good too. You literally have to be human garbage to eat at these places.

Nothing too toxic-looking on the official listing for hotcakes (it's a couple pages down the list in the breakfast section)..

The nutrition info is interesting...340 calories for 3 little cakes is high.

I might be in the minority, but a hot dog stuffed pizza sounds just wrong, and a bacon sundae sounds disgusting.

Tried a bacon-covered doughnut from a sponsor once during my radio show. I like bacon, and I like doughnuts... but that was a vile combination.
