Jon Stewart (my favorite Jew) gave some big TV time to the genius of Baconnaise last night - even though he described the taste as "I think my tongue just took a shit". He showed some extra pork love by using a Jimmy Dean Pancake & Sausage On A Stick to dip in it. Check it out here (go to about 8:30 minutes in).

Well, I don't really know his thoughts on the Jewish religion (though I've heard he actually likes my people unlike Kirk Cameron). BUT, we do now know that he hates BACON (and shrimp, which I like to call "Bacon Of The Sea"). Check out the article here to read about the madness yourself. I can see all the Baptists lining up at 2nd Ave Deli now.

The response has been amazing so far to The Bacon Wellington and other concoctions that you all have submitted to me here on The latest genius creation comes from none other than my brother-in-law, Phil Marks. He spent one late night over the past week inventing THE BACONCADO. Part Bacon, Part Goat Cheese, Part Avacado and 100% awesomeness. Some friends of mine always wanted our friends to put bacon bits in guacamole, and I guess this is even better.

Check out the pics below with Phil's explanations...enjoy!

Here's a before pic. All ready to go. I didn't take prep pics b/c this is a masterpiece in progress. I'll document the prepping with the next attempt.

Close up of fatty goodness. Goody fatness.

In the oven. Notice the form

mmmmm. cooking

The resting period

The true heroes in the process. The toothpicks. Without them, the baconcado slips off the skewer, and we just have a big sloppy raw bacon, soft avocado mess all over the oven. Hail the mighty toothpick!

The hidden surprise revealed! The avocado is stuffed with chopped bacon and crumbled goat cheese! Glorious!

The flavor was devine. Rich and delicious. The texture and taste combinations of crispy, chewy, smooth and creamy, salty, greasy and did I mention rich...and delicious... Out of this world!

I've had a lot of Bacon stories recently, so I figured it would be good to do a story focusing on the last three letters of my site name. This one again comes courtesy of my friend Gray (a gentile) who sent me the awesomeness that is Old Jews Telling Jokes

Don't mix your milk and your meat...really? If you follow that then you can't enjoy the creation from Roni-Sue's called "Pig Candy" which is simply chocolate-covered bacon. Thanks to my friend Jess for passing the NY Mag article on to me about this. I almost bought this in December to trick all her vegetarian friends, but decided to just stick to being a bad Jew, rather than just a bad person.

Thank you Gray Blue for sending me to the genius of THIS IS WHY YOU'RE FAT. It features tons of pictures of the most heart-attack-inducing food around, including some pork-influenced entries such as the Bacon Donut and Bacon Chocolate Chip Cookies. Visit the site here

I was lucky enough to join another 100+ bacon (and bourbon) lovers for the 2009 Bourbon & Bacon Expo at Astor Wines & Spirits yesterday. Over 14 types of bourbons, 6 types of bacon from Nuekes and D'Artagnan, cheese, beef sticks and more. Highlights included an ode to bacon delivered in poem form by Josh Ozersky from Citysearch, and meeting Don Lee from PDT who invented the Bacon Infused of the tastiest items of the night. Here are some iPhone photos to make you jealous...I'm sure some of my fellow bloggers have better quality ones, but these should whet your appetite.

You thought a bacon alarm clock (like in the story below) was enough to start your day...but why not throw a bacon bloody mary into the mix. I've seen bacon-infused vodka at some great bars in NYC like Double Down, but its nice to see my fellow Jewish bloggers giving the product some love. Check out the Jewlicious article to learn more.


Thanks to my friend Scott for a link to the Dlisted article on the "Bacon Alarm Clock". This will definitely give Folgers a run for it's money!

As you all know, the "Bacon Explosion" has taken the web - and country - by storm. Bacon aficionados like myself have definitely been excited about the new love for our favorite pork product. But now, my Lebanese friend Rob Morton (see there can be peace in the Middle East) has taken this to the next level.

Words can't describe this (well I guess if you said - bacon & sausage with the addition of CHEESE, EGG and CROISSANT DOUGH - then you could use words).

Ladies & Gentlemen...THE BACON WELLINGTON
