I was so happy to find out that it was an April 1st joke... because I could see it being a real product.

I'm glad one of them is real. Bacon and cheese in a tube, brilliant, just brilliant! Some Ritz or Club crackers and a case of dark beer and that could be an entire weekend for me.
I had my taste buds amputated many years ago after an unfortunate toothbrush accident, any reviews or opinions I give are suspect and should be viewed as utterly useless.

Bacon cupcakes anyone?
Dark Chocolate and Bacon, it doesn't get much better.

http://allrecipes.co...kes/Detail.aspx



Ingredients

* 12 slices bacon
* 2 cups all-purpose flour
* 3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
* 2 cups white sugar
* 2 teaspoons baking soda
* 1 teaspoon baking powder
* 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
* 2 eggs
* 1 cup cold, strong, brewed coffee
* 1 cup buttermilk
* 1/2 cup vegetable oil
* 1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder, for dusting

Directions

1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Place bacon in a large, deep skillet. Cook over medium-high heat until evenly brown. Drain, crumble and set aside.
2. In a large bowl, stir together the flour, 3/4 cup cocoa powder, sugar, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Make a well in the center and pour in the eggs, coffee, buttermilk and oil. Stir just until blended. Mix in 3/4 of the bacon, reserving the rest for garnish. Spoon the batter into the prepared cups, dividing evenly.
3. Bake in the preheated oven until the tops spring back when lightly pressed, 20 to 25 minutes. Cool in the pan set over a wire rack. When cool, arrange the cupcakes on a serving platter. Frost with your favorite chocolate frosting and sprinkle reserved bacon crumbles on top. Dust with additional cocoa powder.

I tell you guys, when I first saw the post about bacon this and bacon that I was reminded of my redneck roots and made fun of them. Since then I have seen and tasted some of these recipes and they are delicious.

I was an idiot. Now, bring on more bacon. :thumbup:

Damnit, ever since Brian mentioned turbaconducken I have been craving (and eating) bacon every chance I get. This past Saturday we went out for breakfast to Sal's and I had, I swear, the best restaurant bacon I have ever tasted. I was awestruck for the rest of the day.

I caught it. I told some co-workers at my (semi-respectable) job about the monster.

The manager had never cut and cooked(rare) that much Filet Mignon. It was very nice. Thank you!
