gnosis301: Sausage > Bacon.


Oh crap... look what you have done. Or will do. Whatever.

#1:That said: whynotboth.jpg

#2: I'm kinda over bacon flavored stuff fad. I like bacon. The taste. The texture. The crispyness. The greasyness. I enjoy it in moderation. And that's it! It's wonderful and I'm glad to share a planet with bacon! Real strips of bacon.

#3 Lately I'm tired of jalapeno stuff. I love jalapenos.  Not everything has to taste like jalapeno .

On a biscuit, yes. You are correct.

Bacon was king well before a bunch of morons tried to meme and blog it into something even bigger and it will be king when those same morons move onto something else.  It's like saying bourbon is a fad.
 
2014-03-13 02:34:23 PM
Yeah, not so much a fad as it has graduated to, "About as much a part of life as oxygen."

nine bucks a pound, here.

Rarely does bacon get eaten in my home by anyone other than myself (the monsters prefer sausage), so I have discovered microwave bacon, which keeps quite a while in the fridge.

I love bacon.
I do not want bacon band aids, bacon candles, bacon sweaters, bacon cell phone covers, bacon shampoo, etc.
I like crispy, greasy bacon on white bread and a diet Coke.  That is a good breakfast.
I also like it with eggs, and on a burger, and with L & T.
If I didn't care about my health, I would eat bacon everyday for breakfast because I love bacon.
I do not buy into the fad stuff and I do not believe that bacon will every do away.

I loved Bacon when you could get top notch platter Bacon for $0.99 a pound. Breaks my heart to pay $4 for a pound. :(

Imagine if Kale and Bacon got married.

Seriously though....I just don't get the way people freak out about bacon being used in any fashion.

bacon- ON ICE CREAM!!! WHOOOOOOAAAAAAAAA
bacon- ON A DONUT??? WHO'D HAVE THUNK???? GET OUTTA HERE.

I love bacon but geeeeez. calm the phark down.

The bacon bubble is over. Expect the contents of your fridge to lose all it's value.

I like bacon, but sausage is really good too. They have their places, for sure. Eating plain: bacon. Mixed in scrambled eggs: sausage. Stuffed jalapenos: sausage. Burger: Bacon. I think in total, I'd have to side with sausage.
 
2014-03-13 02:59:06 PM
I love bacon... That means that I like it for breakfast if I actually have a 'cooked' breakfast. I love BLTs, and I'll occasionally throw bacon bits on a salad(Real bacon, of course). That's where it stops though, I don't need bacon flavored everything, bacon scented everything, or a bacon shaped pillow, etc...

As a food, it's awesome stuff, and I can see why it's popular. As everything else, it's kind of ridiculous.

That's one solution.  Another is to eat the entire pound of bacon myself one's self.

Also for weekends only.

/ok, I usually give the dog a little.  A very little.

Sausage wrapped in bacon.

Or... Sausage with bacon bits inside it.

Kale braised in bacon fat with little bacon crispies sprinkled throughout? I'm THERE.

The bacon fad.  Another example of younger generations finding ways to claim things that older generations have known for centuries.

Don't look for the price to go down any time soon.  There's this little thing called PEDV or porcine epidemic diarrhea virus.  It is sweeping over the U.S. quite literally like a plague.  PEDV infected herds have nearly 100% mortality of newborns until the sow herd builds up immunity to pass on to future litters.  It is estimated that, to date, over 5million hogs have been lost.   That loss amounts to over 10 days total U.S. production and losses continue to mount.  If you know the difference between a glut and a shortage, you realize that we are going to be short on bacon PDQ.  Lean pork prices that a few short months ago were $85 to $90 are now over $100 to $115, some futures have gone as high as $130.  Pork bellies are, of course, rising right along with that.

One of the few bright notes in pork supply right now is that corn is relatively cheap (compared to a couple years ago) and hogs are marketed at heavier weights, thus helping alleviate the shortage somewhat.  But don't look for the price to come down anytime soon.

Of course, if a miracle vaccine comes out for pedv (none exists in the U.S. at this time) and everybody gets geared up to take advantage of these high prices (in spite of the artificiality of the spike), we may end up with a serious glut.  Then, prices could drop.  Like a big, meaty slab of bacon onto a butcher's block, ready to be lovingly sliced and fried up to the crispy goodness it was intended to be.

I haven't been able to eat more than a strip of bacon/month for several years.  I used to eat quite a bit of it.

It just quit being a taste I like. The salt, I think. I still like city ham, good sausage patties, pork chops, pork tenderloin, andouille sausage. Just not bacon so much. And when I eat it, I have to add something else to it.

The bacon meme is almost as bad as the Chuck Norris meme.

Bacon just isn't that good anymore. It is too lean, as is all pork. All bacon should come from larder pigs, but, unfortunately, few farmers raise them.
