Last year a friend emailed me a Web site link with instructions on how to make a cheddar bacon log, a concoction of crispy, woven bacon and melted cheddar cheese. Woven bacon? Brilliant idea! When I learned about the cheddar bacon log, I swore to Laura I’d make it some day for us.
While that day has yet to arrive (and it will), I find it amusing that the NYTimes food department today featured the Bacon Explosion, a similar concoction which uses sausage filling instead of melted cheese. I think I’ll improvise and include BOTH melted cheddar AND sausage filling. This is food to die for.
