The bacon weave is back! It seems like it’s been a while since Nick from Dude Foods decided to use the bacon weave for a dish, so I’m kind of happy to see that he used the technique for his new Bacon Weave Ice Cream Sandwich. In order to make this rather special creation, Nick made two bacon weaves and then used a reciprocating saw to cut a one-inch thick circle of frozen ice cream. Oh, and for the record, Nick mentions that he was kind of amazed that he didn’t slice off his finger, so you might want to utilize a safer technique before trying this at home.

For years, the idea of a bacon wrapped pizza burrito has been categorized as science fiction at best and madness at worst! But a new age is here, readers. The folks at Oh Bite It! have delivered unto us a recipe for just such a concoction.

Bacon is as American as apple pie and smells even better, so creating a t-shirt with bacon and eggs styled as he United States flag is brilliant. Also, by using a special scented ink, the aroma of bacon will waft off of your shirt in a 6″ radius. It lasts for 20 washes and then it’s still a cool bacon shirt, but smells only of shirt.

Kraft-owned Philadelphia recently announced on Twitter that they unveiled a new cream cheese spread that has Oscar Meyer bacon thrown into the mix. It’s currently available in select stores here in the U.S., and if you can’t find it just yet, don’t worry. It’ll be coming to other local markets very soon.
Philadelphia also has a few other flavors that they’ve recently added to their lineup, including brown sugar, cinnamon, honey pecan, smokey chipotle, spicy jalapeño and smoked salmon. Kraft released a recipe that features the new spread as a key ingredient: French toast stuffed with bacon-flavored cream cheese. Yum.
Yes, we all know that Nick from Dude Foods loves bacon. If the man had a Game of Thrones style family sigil, I guarantee that bacon (along with the words “Never stop frying”) would be up there. But I will admit that I was a bit surprised that Nick went so far as to create S’mores Bacon in his most recent post. I mean, marshmallow and bacon? Sounds nuts, but after looking at the pictures, it does look rather tasty. Basically, Nick cooked up some bacon and spread melted marshmallows over each strip. Then he sprinkled graham crackers on and tossed everything in the oven. Oh, and he made Hershey’s chocolate dipping sauce too. Yum!

You may have never thought to infuse bacon, caramel and bourbon into a milkshake, but I bet now that you know it exists, you’re heading to Red Robin for dinner. The chain announced that they will be offering a Beam-N-Bacon Boozy Shake which will include Jim Beam’s maple bourbon, caramel, bacon bits, vanilla ice cream, and a strip of candied bacon as a stirrer. If you want to try one of these sinful concoctions, you have until November 2nd when this limited time item will disappear.

Bacon is one of the most beautiful specimens of meat. Its taste and smell are matched only by its appearance, but Instructables user PenfoldPlant figured out how to make the breakfast treat look even more appealing by turning it into a Moebius strip. You’ll need patience and, most importantly, meat glue – the name for an enzyme called transglutaminase. Once you get the process of making the strips down, I’m pretty sure the next step is taking over the world.

Summer may be nearly over, but there’s still plenty of time to cool down with this very adult popsicle concoction. These Bacon Bloody Mary Popsicles are perhaps the greatest treat you’ll have all summer. You start by soaking the bacon in some vodka, then wrapping it around a breadstick and baking it to form the stick for your popsicle. Next you poor Bloody Mary mix into a popsicle mold, insert the bacon breadsticks and freeze overnight.

We have Canada to thank for this wonder of coffee goodness. Toronto-based Bewdly makes the beans by coating them in a maple bacon concoction and letting them soak up the flavor. You can purchase it by the pound as whole beans or pre-ground. This sounds like a brilliant combination, and it makes me more grateful than ever for our neighbors to the North.

Having just seen what’s on the menu at Brutus in Montreal, I may be booking a trip very, very soon.
This new place of your bacon dreams is the brainchild of Anthoni Jodoin, who understands that bacon really is the food of the gods and found a way to work it into everything. The food, the drinks, the donuts. Everything.
The menu boasts dishes like Jägermeister poutine, a 100% bacon sausage hot dog, bacon sushi (which is not raw bacon, I promise) and Brisures de Bacon or chocolate bacon cookies.
All I know is, I want to live there.
Head after the break to see a selection of these masterpieces.
