Yes, went totally overboard! My guest wanted a dinner with “bacon in it,”…….so it was all about bacon in each and every way possible!
Not that long ago I attended a “chocolate event” and tried potato chips dipped in chocolate…..so I took it one step further and dropped some bacon bits on top of the chocolate and let it set…..talk about a sweet and salty appetizer! They were delish and swiftly consumed!
Wanting to start with something fresh, the meal began with a light tossed chopped cherry tomatoes and green grapes in a light extra virgin olive oil with fresh lemon juice, pepper and red wine vinegar dressing…..and the salad, of course, had tiny bits of bacon in it as well…..
As an entrée, made a home-made red wine sangria for a turkey breast, which was covered with Maplewood bacon and pineapple slices on top……Delish to the max!
Of course there was a side dish…..a type of casserole with mandolined potatoes, zucchini, squash and onions, sautéed in bacon, of course!
And the potatoes, with bacon and some milk, with parmesan cheese all mixed and then placed back in the oven to bake a little while longer…..
Dessert was totally decadent to the max….I made chocolate bacon cookies and turbo-chocolate with bacon cupcakes, served with Blueberry-Bacon Ice Cream!!!!!
All I can say is….we’re still Alive!
