Breakfast-Sushi

This is everything I’ve ever wanted in a breakfast food.

Tym Bussanich’s Breakfast Sushi features some traditional breakfast ingredients—cheese, eggs, tater tots and jalapeño—all packed together and wrapped up with a bacon weave. It’s the breakfast of (samurai) champions.

Head on over to Tym’s blog for the complete recipe.

Grab some Pepto, and feast your eyes on the 30-pound grilled masterpiece that is the Beer Keg Bacon Burger Pizza. Grill master Charlie Sims was inspired by the TV show BBQPitBoys, especially the popular episode featuring the beer-can bacon burger. His competitive nature made him wonder how he could top that.

So he ran to the store to spend $110 on 17 pounds of 80/20 beef mixed with three pounds sausage, a pound each of ham and pepperoni, a gallon of homemade tomato sauce, green, yellow and red bell peppers, mushrooms and four kinds of cheese. He molded it around a beer keg and threw it on the grill for a gigantic carb-killing new invention.

He tells Nola:

“It was a huge hit. It made a little over 30 pieces, and we had about 20 people here. It was great. Everybody got destroyed.”

I can’t imagine the food coma after that meal. Check out more photos after the break.

Indiana has followed New Hampshire’s lead by releasing bacon-scented scratch-off lottery tickets. However, the Hoosier state went a step further by giving players the opportunity to win a 20 year supply of everyone’s favorite meat.

If you should happen to bring home the bacon, it will be paid out in 20 installments worth approximately $250 each in order to accommodate for fridge space.

Beyond that, if you should find yourself questioning the possibility of consuming that much bacon, winners can instead opt for a one-time lump payment of $5,000.

Let the games begin.

stuffed-tater-totburger

From the looks of Tym Bussanich’s Instagram account, the man is on a mission from God to create the ultimate gnarly fried snack. Case in point: this tater tot that’s stuffed with a cheeseburger that’s wrapped up in bacon.

In order to make the burger, Bussanich took cheesy tater tots and ground them up. Then he took a cheeseburger patty wrapped in bacon and “breaded” the meat with the tater tots before frying.

See it come together in the video after the break…

The folks at Zombie Burger, a Des Moines, Iowa-based restaurant, are fans of the Human Centipede movies and decided that they would be a great inspiration for food. Naturally.

In honor of the series, the burger joint recently concocted the “Martin’s Revenge” burger–named after the bad guy in the second film, Martin Lomax–and it features a “three-piece slider bun with a different burger in each segment.”

According to dmjuice, Zombie Burger chef Tom McKern notes:

The first burger is steak with cheddar, bacon and red raw onion. The second is a burger patty with American cheese, pulled barbecue bacon and sauteed red onion. The third burger is a loose meat sandwich with house-made cheese whiz and bacon-red onion jam.

“I was trying to figure out a way to do a take on the movie through a burger,” McKern said. “I basically started with whole ingredients, and processed them down from slider to slider.”

The burger goes for $10.79, and frankly, I’m just happy the chef didn’t sew the burgers together…or include human meat.

beer can burgers

Although beer has long been associated with burgers, the BBQ Pit Boys have developed a Bacon Burger that actually makes the beer can an integral part of the burger recipe. The process involves using the can as a mold to create a bacon-wrapped meatball bowl that is then stuffed with toppings such as onions, peppers, mushrooms, meat chili, and roast beef before being grilled to perfection.

Check out the video tutorial after the jump.

Now this is one tasty treat that I’m just dying to make. These bacon marshmallows are, as their name so aptly describes, a lovely combination of crunchy, salty bacon and sweet marshmallow. There’s even a dash of liquid smoke added for good measure. The layering is amazing looking as well.

If you’d like to learn how to make these bacon marshmallows, head on over to Instructables for the recipe.

Fans of Wes Anderson’s uniquely kitschy aesthetic will be happy to hear that the director designed a bar in Milan, Italy. It looks like it could be a set in one of his films.

Opening on May 9, Bar Luce is located within the Fondazione Prada—Prada’s art and culture center.

According to Wired, Anderson’s overall design plan for the bar was for it to “echo old-school Milanese cafés.” The bar features a number of vintage touches, including a juke box, pinball machines (appropriately Steve Zissou-themed), formica chairs and what Anderson describes as a “perfectly centered schoolhouse clock.” It also boasts wallpaper and arched ceilings that are meant to mimic the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II, which is a local landmark. Anderson noted that his goal was to create a bar that he’d be comfortable spending his “non-fictional afternoons in,” and it looks like he nailed it.

The BMO gaming system is highly underrated. Sure, it doesn’t have the same graphics capabilities as an Xbox One or a Playstation 4, but BMO can actually talk. And dance. And also be a little bit sassy.

Of the system’s most popular games, “Makin’ Bacon Pancakes”, was one of the few titles to use the system’s Frying Pan accessory (which, according to a study I just made up, caused over 800,000 house fires in the U.S. during the ’80s).

The shirt is available in our Nerd Approved Shirt Store for only $14 for a limited time!

bacon-grill.0.0

Nothing alleviates the pain of enduring a boring college lecture like delicious bacon. That would explain why a Mississippi State student recently brought his George Foreman grill to class. A classmate snapped a pretty amusing pic and posted it on Twitter (you can check it out after the break), and as you’ll see, the kid has it right there on his desk.

I’m wondering if the professor had anything to say about this. While it may have helped the student who brought the grill, I have to imagine that the smell of bacon sizzling in the classroom would have been impossibly distracting to everyone else.
