I might have posted this before because I know I've done it before

this past weekend, I made sausage gravy with bacon again ... cooked the bacon in the oven on a cookie sheet while making my standard sausage gravy ... then crumbled the bacon into the gravy before serving ... served the gravy over home fries instead of biscuits, with a side of cheesy scrambled eggs and cinnamon rolls ... yummy

because sometimes, it is all about the bacon. which seems to enhance most anything

what is the most satisfying sandwich you can think of? like for one of those times, when you don't really know what you want, but know you have to eat something? what fills that void of needing to eat and is actually satisfying?

for me, hands down, it is a BLT

some nice toasted oatmeal bread, a slather of mayo, some fresh crunchy lettuce, a couple thick slices of a garden tomato, and bacon

sandwich perfection

I made fresh guacamole for the first time and used bacon. It's life altering.

My entire family now eats honey on their biscuits and gravy. Only the middle child and I use the hot sauce too, but everyone thinks we're a bunch of weirdos.

Honey on biscuits is amazing. Throw in some sausage gravy and you've got yourself a fine meal.

Sausage gravy with bacon. I don't get the obsession with bacon-flavored this and bacon-scented that, but bacon grease makes fucking amazing gravy. Add a little to the sausage (fried with some chopped fresh jalepeno) when you start the gravy and then chop up the bacon to sprinkle on top. Amazaballs.

Using the bacon grease to fry your potatoes in is awesome as well.

Got to make a confession. I have grown to like turkey bacon. The only thing I miss from real bacon is grease to fry my eggs and taters in. I dont like crispy bacon I like chewy bacon so the TB has the right texture for me.

I kind of like it too. It's not a replacement for bacon by any stretch of the imagination, but for what it is it's pretty good.

I am pleased to have had an influence on your family tradition

and that you have traveled such a long way from that day you called me a weirdo for suggesting it to become one yourself

:thumbsup:
