What's for dinner? Wednesday 9-7-16

Leftover pulled pork and cabbage slaw here this afternoon. I think I'll just have crackers with the pulled pork, rather than on a sandwich. Cantaloupe on the side, and mango frozen yogurt for dessert a little later on.

What's on your plate?

Burgers on the grill, oven fries.

Just in case anyone is wondering what's my version of oven fries, diced red potatoes tossed with a bit of olive oil, sprinkled with a bit of sea salt, baked, and then finished off under the broiler to lightly brown them.

Down home cooking going on here today and it sure smells good!

I have my "no name" enameled cast iron dutch oven on the stove with a big meaty ham bone, fresh chard and collard greens in Better Than Bullion Ham flavor with water and a can of fire roasted tomatoes. When the greens are nice and tender, I'll add a can of drained navy beans and a cut up ham steak. I'll ask the SC if he would like to have cornbread with his. That won't bother me a bit, because I don't like cornbread.

I could dig right into that plate Joey!

The tomato plants are waning, which means that fried greens will be getting less available and BLTs (using our own 'maters) will be a recent memory.

In view of that, we had BLTs and just when I thought they couldn't get any better...they did.

There were 4 of these hamburger buns left from the batch I baked the end of last week. We had some loaf bread but not enough for both of us to have two sandwiches. It's a federal law that you have to eat at least two at one sitting.

So...

I toasted the buns up lightly and used them. Holy yeast, Batman!!! The best BLT I've ever had.

Of course, there was a container full of my woven bacon slabs and plenty of lettuce, so we were set.

I feel as stuffed as the Thanksgiving turkey, but it was worth every bite.

The 3-mustard chicken recipe I posted on here previously plus honeydew, watermelon and green grapes, as well as new potatos steamed, smushed and pan fried.

Not so elegant repast here, hoping to finish the maple pulled ham, and the bean dip here (note the comma).

I posted a photo of this great bacon "technique" some while ago, probably before you became part of DC.

My method for each slab involves taking 3 slices of bacon and slicing them in half, which results in 6 mini-slices. Then, place 3, shoulder-to-shoulder, in a row. "Weave" the remaining half pieces so that you end up with a bacon slab or slice.

Now, here's the tricky part. I carefully place the woven bacon onto my Cuisinart Griddler, close the lid and cook the bacon to desired crispiness.

Before I had the Griddler I used my waffle iron. Never tried it in a skillet or in the oven, but I see no reason why either of those cooking methods would not work.

What happens during the cooking is the grease drains off, of course, but most importantly...the pieces of bacon fuse together. Drain on a rack and store, separated with waxed paper or parchment, in an airtight container in the freezer.

When needed, remove from the freezer and nuke for a few seconds (only a few) or allow to come to room temperature when using in BLT sandwiches.

Here's what the slabs look like:
