Bacon recipes required

Discussion in 'Food and Drink' started by mark76, Sep 23, 2015.

  1. I've got a new cast iron pan and I'm busy seasoning it. And since I know this forum as containing the highest number of bacon lovers, I thought: maybe anyone can give me a creative bacon recipe.

    I ask creative, because I've run out of ideas. I seldom do breakfast. So bacon with eggs, which I did for the last two days: too heavy for me. Bacon-wrapped sausage/chicken/catfish? Great, but not for the second day. Same with plain good baked crispy bacon which I throw over a chili con carne/pasta/...

    Anyone who's got slightly higher end/more original bacon recipes?

    Rumaki, but kind of not dependent on your cast iron pan.

    I like my bacon plain anyway though, pan is good for that.

  9. Thanks guys! That swineapple looks spectacular! Nice little project for this weekend...

    A related question. I've never shaved a pineapple. What knife do you guys use? Is a hard J-knife which has an acute angle too risky? Should I use a J-knife with an obtuse angle? Or a western knife?

    pretty much any old gyuto will do, or a suji. If the edge is super-thin, you might want to choose a different gyuto/suji as sometimes the eyes can be a little hard...but unless you think the edge is particularly fragile, it should be fine.
