Bacon

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.

This isn’t a prototype but an actual motorcycle commissioned by meat company Hormel and it runs on bacon grease fuel. It was featured in a documentary titled Driven by Bacon and is called the Hormel Black Label Bacon Motorcycle. The bike runs on B-100 biodiesel which is made from bacon waste and runs about $3.50 a gallon and, yes, it does leave behind the smell of bacon as you cruise down the street. They’re looking for volunteers to drive it from Austin, MN to San Diego, CA if you’re up for the job.

I can’t explain the logic behind Reebok making bacon… save for the fact that bacon is tasty, but still, this makes zero sense. Yes, Reebok makes shoes and bacon now. Deal with it, world.

Actually, the bacon is sourced by U.S. Wellness Meats, and it doesn’t have any nitrates, sweeteners or MSG and they are not cured. The bacon was passed out to folks who participated in the Reebok CrossFit Games. You probably won’t see Reebok bacon in supermarkets anytime soon, but if you’d like to learn more about it, or if you’d like to sign up for updates about where Reebok might distribute the bacon next, head on over to Reebok.com.

MapleSyrupAndBaconBreadedWings2

Nick of Dude Foods has an ample amount of bacon lying around his kitchen thanks to the Farmland Bacon Club so, naturally, he incorporated that crispy pork goodness into a crazy new dish. It involves adding maple flavored bacon to some chicken wings. He tossed the bacon into a blender and then he brushed non-breaded chicken with maple syrup and crumbled all that delicious bacon on top. The result looks pretty darn tasty!

Check out the full recipe at Dude Foods.

BaconWrappedGrilledCheeseSticks1

Nick of Dude Foods is constantly searching for inventive ways to combine things with bacon, and his latest creation involves wrapping grilled cheese sticks. Simply make grilled cheese sandwiches and cut them into strips, wrap pieces of bacon around the sandwich strips, and deep fry or bake them. I like the idea, but I’d rather save the time and just put my bacon on my regular grilled cheese sandwich.

Have you ever wondered why bacon smells so incredible? Well, the folks over at Reactions/ACS crafted a video that answers that very important question. As it turns out, there are 150 organic compounds that come together to make up bacon’s alluring scent. When the bacon is cooked, something called the Maillard reaction (a chemical reaction between amino acids and reducing sugars) occurs, which gives bacon is wonderful hearty flavor. Couple that reaction with melting fat, and the result gives off an intricate mixture of aromas that mesh together to create one, oh-so-delicious scent that is downright irresistible.

1d8e_breakfast_lollipop_set

It can be hard to find the time to prepare breakfast in the morning. Sometimes even popping a frozen waffle in the toaster is more work than I want to do. These new breakfast lollipops from ThinkGeek could save the day though.

The set has bacon, donut, and waffle lollipops, and their flavors pretty much match their titles. According to ThinkGeek, “The bacon tastes like bacon; the donut tastes like coconut (with strawberry frosting); and the waffle tastes like delicious maple syrup.” All you have to do is unwrap the suckers and destroy a tasty, if nutritionally poor, breakfast.

Courtesy of @alixmcalpine, this monstrous dish features a bacon-wrapped alligator* with a whole roasted chicken shoved into its mouth. I’m pretty sure even Crocodile Dundee would be intimidated by the prospects of chomping down on this thing.
