The stuffed mushrooms sound super tasty! I think I am going to do a pasta dish with some of it tonight. I like all of your ideas. I thought I would be eating this bacon until I was 80, but you guys are really helping me think beyond bacon and eggs and blts.

What is a moinkball?
Thanks. One of my fellow foodies showed me the stuffed shrooms. There's not much you can't do with a little cream cheese, jalapeno and BACON!

A moink ball is a small frozen meatball wrapped in bacon, seasoned with a rub, smoked, then dipped in BBQ sauce and smoked some more.

Let me put it this way...
The last time bacon was on sale I bought ten lbs
Once the smoker or grill gets fired up you can easily burn through a lb or more. By the time I'm 80 I hope to have that cut back to half a lb

I think maybe I will do these for the bf's poker game on Monday... He would like firing up the grill!

How about making potato-cheese-bacon filling for perogies? When I make perogies, I use about 2# of bacon (but then, I make about 30 dozen at a time).

How do you make your perogies? My husband is polish, so it would be a hit! I can't make much more than Mrs. T's. I have tried but they didn't taste anything like his mom's coveted recipe which I am not privy to.

On pizza. BLTs. Rumaki.. Angels/Devils on Horseback. I don't know about your family, but if I fry (or nuke) a pound, it will disappear. Super to "lard" a too-lean cut of meat (especially game).

Bacon is never a problem! You can make many pasta dishes like carbonara, or a blt pasta, using bacon, leeks, and cherry tomatoes. Or if you're feeling really adveturous try making fat washed bourbon! You can fry the bacon on the stove then add all of the grease into your favorite bourbon and freeze. The fat will freeze to the top, just scrape of and serve bourbon on ice or with bitters. it gives the bourbon a smoky quality. You can also use it in savory bread pudding or ontop of maple glazed dounuts, yummy!:P

Ok, never heard of this, but it sounds like just something I might try to make, if I had the right ingredients around. Are you feeling adventurous? Are you ready to make a statement in the world of creativity? Are you insane!

Maple fudge with crispy bacon bits.

Home made vanilla ice cream with crispy bacon bits.

If you make these, I jsut bet they'd be good.
