I will save you the utter shock and horror over never having cooked bacon. Instead....some ideas:

- if frying, put the bacon in a cold pan and turn on the heat to med high. cook and flip, flip and cook until done.

- baking it gives the best results. Line a cookie sheet with parchment or paper towel. Lay the bacon in flat and back on 375 for about 15 minutes, give or take. Don't pull it out till its done. Don't overload the oven...put the bacon in the center so the walls don't make it start to scorch on the outside pieces

- Use the baking recipe from above, but instead of putting the bacon on the parchment, you will lay it on a cooling rack set on top of the parchment. But first....put some brown sugar on a paper plate. Add in a pinch of cayenne. Get your bacon all separated into individual pieces, then put a very light coating of brown mustard on it. Very light. Then dip in the brown sugar until you have a nice, even coating of brown sugar on the bacon. Lay gently on the cooling rack that you have on the cookie sheet, and bake for about 15-20 minutes. It may start to smell scorched...that is the sugar that dripped off....as long as the bacon is good, you are good. This is how you make candied bacon. WARNING: making too big a batch of this could potentially unravel the universe. It is a level of sin that hasn't been seen since the casting out of satan. You were warned.

Candied bacon makes for the best hamburger night of your life. Alternately, you can just stuff them in your mouth and have an overload of pure pleasure. But that is kind of like looking God in the face, and you might not survive it.

If you do a candied bacon burger night....try aioli with it:

- 1/2 c mayo
- zest and juice of 1 lime
- 1 tbl chili powder (fancy light most likely, if you can get ancho use it instead)
- 1 or 2 cloves of garlic

Mix until it is combined and refrigerate for about an hour before using. It makes for a nice french fry ketchup replacement, and is outstanding on a burger.

ETA: i just described last nights supper, actually. I make my burgers with really thin sliced yellow onion and tomato (i use a mandolin slicer to get it really thin and consistent), and used havarti cheese since its readily available, mild, and melts nicely.

oh yeah, don't buy anything but the thick sliced.

and don't be afraid to try different kinds. Applewood smoked is my favorite, preferrably the kind cured in apple cider. Maple is only good for breakfast. I like black forest bacon quite a bit, its an uncured, applewood smoked variety we have available here.

Most "fine dining" and/or catering operations bake their bacon. Its the best way to get it crispy enough to have texture while keeping the pieces flat/straight, and without rendering out too much fat. I think it makes the perfect bacon....you just have to get your timing down for your stove/elevation, and itll be perfect set to a timer.

Hello my Freind.. I am posting this because you said you would give me advice and recipes if I ever wanted.. and I would like everyone's help who is willing, so instead of a message I am saying this here..

I have never cooked bacon, and need to learn how, and would like everyone's recipes.. I have also shared a recipe for any interested party, although I have not tried it, it does sound good.

www.abovetopsecret.com...

Hubby wants bacon, and I don't know how to cook it.. !
Its for a good cause!


Hell yeah
I'm half Irish remember, we love cabbage and bacon I kid you not.

Take the god given gift that is bacon I use a hell of a lot more than my granny did) and cut it into little cube type things (lardons)

Chop the hell out of an onion, and whack them both in a pan and fry them off for about 5 minutes.

Bash the crap out of some garlic and add that after then carry on chief for another couple of minutes.

Whilst heaven is waiting cut the cabbage so it's sorta shredded and when ready add it to the pan, stir that baby occasionally for about ten minutes. Add freshly milled pepper to taste and check to see if it needs salt.

Voila Candied bacon it aint, but is bloody good

Also this is bloody lovely Carbonara

Sorry for the late reply, been kinda busy.

Do you guys not have brown mustard??? Or is it more than in Europe you guys don't sully the good name of mustard by selling that nasty Yellow Mustard crap?

To be honest, you can use any kind of mustard other than yellow. I like dijon as well for the task. But the more coarse the mustard is, the better the flavor is typically.

Yeah we have that yellow stuff, but what you call brown mustard we call wholegrain, (Just had to check in the fridge for the name), but Dijon is one of my favourites.

A dash of horseradish sauce and some mustard with my roast beef with all the trimmings, heaven on a plate bro, I hope one day to cook it for your family.

Y'all will go

"Who was that English weirdo ?" Damn good meal though LOL

when you say horseradish, i think prime rib.

I ate at this place in Laramie, WY called The Library that had a legendary 1lb prime rib for $15. Their horseradish was a pure, made on sight concoction that was somehow cured or prepared so it had an almost creamy texture to it. It wasn't a "creamy horseradish sauce"...it was just regular horseradish that was salted and prepared in a way that it was almost like a mix between parmesan cheese and horseradish. The most delicious meat condiment I have ever had outside of a good sesame sauce.

Sesame sauce ? That's a new one on me


I know a place near here where wild horseradish grows, it's hotter than the rubbish you buy in the shops, so I make my own sauce , horseradish a bit of yellow mustard powder, pinch of sugar, salt and pepper and a hint of cream to make it all smooth and mouth wateringly good.

I just bought the rib of beef for tomorrow's roast, my butcher is amazing, the meat is top quality aged for at least 35 days and half the price of the supermarkets !!!

Tonight we have Kangaroo steaks and duck, (we just got back from a local farmer's market), I've never tried kangaroo before but Mrs C assures me it's delicious.

any kind of asian sauce with sesame oil in it. I love sesame oil. Passionately.

I have posted the citrus/ginger sesame glaze before, and this version is likely to be slightly different just because that's how i cook.

- Juice 3 grapefruits, 3 tangerines, and 3 lemons. Zest one of each. Place in a sauce pan and bring to a simmer
- add in 1/4c brown sugar, stir to evenly distribute
- add in 1/4c soy sauce, 5 or 6 minced garlic cloves, a pinch of red pepper flakes, and 1/4c sesame oil
- grate in about 2tbl of fresh ginger
- mince about 2tbl of shallot and add in
- reduce by 70%, give or take, until it makes a nice glaze that sticks to the back of a spoon

I use this on anything, but am particularly fond of wings. Just throw some chicken wings in the oven on 350 for about an hour (for a full cookie sheet full of wings, anyway), then toss with this sauce. I dip it in a wasabi sauce that I make using 1c mayo, 1c buttermilk, 1/4c wasabi paste, 2tsp salt, 1/4c minced scallions, and 3-4 minced garlic cloves (or, alternately, if you can make garlic paste omit the salt and just use 1-2tsp garlic paste)
