I almost titled this post…”too much pork makes me fart”. To those of you that get this, it’s hilarious..to those who don’t, it’s rather gross. But never-mind what I chose not to call this, lets talk bacon. Bacon, the king of meats. Some may say Filet Mignon, NY Strip, maybe even Veal…..no, they’re wrong. Bacon. I will not hear your arguments, thus I will say it again. Bacon.
Since sharing quarters with the GF, I’ve not been able to cook bacon nearly as much as I would like. In addition to being a flat-tooth, some roommates in college ruined bacon for her. Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner….while it sounds awesome, apparently with the smell of someone always cooking bacon in the house was just too much for her. Now my bacon frying is relegated to when she is out of town.
Tonight is one of those nights, so I chose to fry up some bacon for a simple bacon sandwich for dinner. A simple bacon sandwich was what I went into the process thinking, what I got was so much more. I didn’t take a picture, so you’ll have to use your imagination on this one.
Bangin’ Bacon Sandwich
Bacon (fried until crisp)
Mixed Salad Greens (undressed)
Goat Cheese (soft)
French Baguette (fresh)
Fry bacon, let drain on paper towel. Slice baguette and place soft-side down in the bacon drippings, let fry. Pull the bread off the pan, place goat cheese liberally on the bread. Add bacon and salad greens.
Enjoy a delicious, delicious sandwich….Crisp, Salty, Rich, Creamy, Fresh & Amazing. I know bacon makes everything better, but this was one of the most surprising dishes I’ve prepared in quite awhile. I didn’t go into this expecting anything more than to satisfy a bacon craving, but I got a slice a heaven….just as bacon should be.
