After posting my hot dogs wrapped in bacon many said anything is good wrapped in bacon. *I have been trying this out. *Here is what I have found.

MB, have you ever seen this egg recipe?

Scotch Eggs

Brian Turner's Favourite British Recipes

So fattening but so good! This recipe makes 6 Scotch eggs.

6 hard-cooked eggs, well chilled
1 pound breakfast sausage
1/2 cup flour
2 eggs, beaten
3/4 cup fine bread crumbs
Vegetable oil for frying

Peel eggs and set aside. Divide sausage into 6 portions. Roll each egg in flour and with hands press a portion of the sausage around each egg.

Dip sausage-wrapped eggs into beaten eggs and roll in bread crumbs. Heat vegetable oil to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

Cook each egg in oil about 4-5 minutes or until sausage is cooked and browned. Drain on paper toweling. Serve warm.

The peppers stuffed with cheese and wrapped in bacon have to be a winner!

With the large Jalapeños add Cajun seasoning and garlic powder if using the cream cheese. *I also used fresh minced garlic.

that sounds like the sh*t!........how about smoked striper.wrapped in bacon,with cheese and jalapno?! [smiley=strawberry.gif]

D@mn Master Baiter, how clog are your arteries? :o *BTW, those peppers wrapped in bacon look killer. I’ll prepare them for some Thanksgiving appetizers. *

11-08-2007, 03:20 PM
You guys haven't lived until you've tried a few smoked jalapenos(aka ABT's) with a couple of cold ones.........dang, my mouth gets to watering just thinking about them! Guaranteed to get you barking afterwards. :o

My favorite filling is sliced or chopped little smokies mixed with jack cheese wrapped with a nice piece of bacon that has been slightly pre-cooked in a pan. Smoke for about 2 hrs @ 225 with your choice of chips......yeeeummm.

I like to make half a dozen when I'm smoking ribs, brisket or a meatloaf. My wife and daughter won't go near them which means no competition for the hors d'oeuvres plate. ;D

Hmmm, might have to make up a batch for the upcoming striperfest potluck!

MB, read this on another site I go to and immediately thought of you.

Pig Peckers

2 pkgs breakfast links (24 total)
1 pkg bacon (maple if available)
1 box brown sugar, light or dark
cayenne pepper

Take bacon out and cut strips in half while still together. Slightly stretch a half piece of bacon around each sausage, it will stick, and then roll in a mixture of 1 cup brown sugar and 1 teaspoon of cayenne pepper, then toothpick so that bacon will stay during cooking.

On broiler pan or directly on oven rack with catch pan underneath, bake at 250 for 90 minutes or until bacon is done. In smoker, go 2-2.5hrs at 250.

They have a nice sweet bite, are chewy and have a very slight spicy hot finish. Good with cold beer and football.
This is what they look like before cooking, and after the sugar has melted into the bacon


11-17-2007, 11:21 PM
That sounds cool 8-)
There has to be a faster way to cook them...breakfast would be late if it took 1 1/2- 2 1/2 hours to cook :o

12-13-2007, 04:27 PM
I'm having a heart attack just reading this stuff!

03-24-2008, 01:20 PM
MB, how long do you cook your peppers? I was reading some recipes on a smoking forum and they claim 2 - 3 hours at 200 degrees. That sounds like way too long to me. What has been your experience?

03-24-2008, 06:32 PM
Not that long at all. I just cook them until the bacon gets crispy. Probably about 15 min or so at high heat. That is just how I do it I'm not sure if it is the right way :P
They do taste good.

03-25-2008, 08:27 AM
I'm going to buy a vertical chile holder this weekend.

03-25-2008, 04:49 PM
Cool, Post up some pic of it when you get it going. 8-)

03-25-2008, 09:38 PM
While making some bacon the other day i got the best suprise ever under the bacon..



03-26-2008, 11:10 PM
That's f'ing sweet Crass! Ahh bacon...the gift that keeps on giving :D. They should do that for all meats (mini rib eyes in a pack of steaks, mini pork chops, etc.). Man, it would be like Christmas every time you cook some meat.


03-27-2008, 12:06 PM
I think Emeril had it right when he said, "PORK FAT RULES BABY!!!!!!!!!!"* [smiley=pig.gif] and I just about died when I saw those deviled eggs wrapped up! * [smiley=rotfl2.gif] *My sister does a killer asparagus wrapped in good quality maple or butcher smoked bacon from Swingles in Amador county. Wrap them up and put them into a 400 degree oven until juicy and crispy. [smiley=yikes.gif]

04-07-2008, 06:54 PM
When in doubt wrap it in bacon!...12th rule of the kitchen. ;)

Some of my favorite things to wrap in cured pig belly is-

Ginger/Soy Scallops wrapped in bacon.
Lemon/ Tyme prawns wrapped in bacon.
Tenderloin with Gorgonzola and carmalized onions wrapped in bacon.
Crab and roasted garlic cream stuffed chilis wrapped in bacon.
portabella stuffed chicken tenderloin wrapped in bacon.

Soak it in fat, and you cant go wrong....Who wants to live forever anyway?

So I have a whole bunch of Kokes in the freezer and was thinking about some of the things I could do with them. Then it hit me like a 200lb pig *[smiley=pig.gif] bacon!!!!!!!!!! doesn't that sound good? maybe season with some pepper and garlic and wrap a couple of these puppies in some bacon and stick them on the bbq?? OMG I know what I'm having for dinner...

04-09-2008, 11:31 AM
yaya, cook up a bunch of Kokanee, crumble and make salmon patties out of them and serve with some cripsy bacon on top. [smiley=chowtime.gif]

04-09-2008, 11:33 AM
So, how many Sniffers can your dining room table accomodate ;D?


04-09-2008, 02:00 PM
Oh My... [smiley=tongue2.gif]

04-09-2008, 10:50 PM
Gotta love that bacon! I am so glad there's a "cookin' your catch" section here, as not everybody does catch and release all the time.

My dad used to fix stream-caught trout during our camping trips here in the Sierra, by putting salt and pepper on them, and putting them in hinged, wire mesh fish-cooking "baskets" with strips of raw bacon on each side of the trout. Then he would mix up some olive oil and wine vinegar, and tie together a bundle of fresh rosemary to use as a basting brush. As the trout (and bacon) sizzled and cooked, he would baste them occasionally with the vinegar and oil.

Sounds weird maybe, but we all dove into them like starving maniacs. That is how I cook trout now, even at home, except for the times when I crave them the good old-fashioned way of coating them with seasoned flour and cornmeal and frying them in the skillet!

04-10-2008, 06:26 AM
There's nothing quite like Brookies fried in a cast iron skillet in bacon greese, streamside, the only thing that I add is a couple of green onions on the inside.


04-10-2008, 07:26 PM
heard of a place in texas that does "country fried bacon". :o

04-11-2008, 10:54 AM

04-11-2008, 11:56 AM

This is my favorite way to eat asparagus.

First take one asparagus and bend it until it breaks. Line it up with the others and cut them all to the same size.

Wrap the bacon around from bottom to top and place on cookie tray:
Note: Thin bacon works better than thick.

Sprinkle with garlic and onion powder and bake at 350 for 30 minutes. I usually like to serve them with barbequed steak and a baked potato ;)

Sounds cool Prowler...I will have to try it. 8-)

02-07-2009, 09:17 AM
I like bacon, but you guys are over the top!

Next time you are going to roast a whole chicken, try tucking strips of bacon under the skin on top of each breast. Adds great flavor and keeps it moist!

02-07-2009, 02:26 PM
ohh man! all this looks great. your cholesterol must have been rocketed through the roof!

02-12-2009, 09:27 AM
This thread reminds me of the "Bacon Explosion". Forgive me if this has been posted before, but it basically 2 lbs of sausage rolled up in 2 lbs of weaved bacon, then covered in bbq sauce and grilled. :)


02-23-2009, 07:51 PM
Okay guys, I think I've found the ultimate!!!


02-23-2009, 07:58 PM
That could get you banned . . . but not from the cooking board! ;)

02-23-2009, 08:08 PM
That could get you banned . *. *. *but not from the cooking board! *;)

02-23-2009, 08:20 PM
I want to try that but Im missing one ingredient. ;D

02-24-2009, 09:26 AM

I hear that happens to you when you get older. I'll be happy to buy you the bacon.

;D ;D ;D

Just kiddin' dude. Don't ban me!!! :D

02-24-2009, 12:45 PM

02-24-2009, 01:52 PM
No joke, I bought some of these from the world famous Loveless Cafe in Nashville.


02-24-2009, 01:54 PM
That's a classic Daz! ;D

02-24-2009, 02:16 PM

02-24-2009, 02:19 PM
bak home we used to chop leaf lettuce, dice tomatos, diced onions, back pepper, mix it all up. fry a lb of bacon until its really crisp, break it up and mix it in the salad mixture, get the bacon grease real hot and pour over the salad, thats good.

02-24-2009, 05:15 PM

I was hoping the band-aids would be scratch-n-sniff. They weren't, but that's probably a good thing....kept me from wanting to "lick my wounds". :P
