Macaroni and cheese lubricated with bacon fat – curiously fabulous
Bacon wrapped figs with goat cheese – sublime joy
Cupcakes with bacon icing – yes, cupcakes with bacon!
Bacon wrapped jalapeÃ±o poppers – Powie! Zowie!
Mini bacon bread buns – one of my contributions!
Italian spiced bacon bread rollup – mine! got a couple good reviews :-)
Jesse’s Bacon Wheel Casserole – as he described it, “…just a tuna noodle casserole BUT we use wagon-wheel shaped pasta, AND use bacon instead of tuna. The idea is that the small pieces of bacon will get lodged between the spokes of the wheel.” !! :-)

Excellent conversation with Susie!
It was startling how within 15 minutes of arrival there was this bacon fueled frenzy of eating and “om om nom nom om!” and heated conversation with eye-rolling-back goodness.

“Bacon: The Gateway Meat”
“Bacon: It’s what’s for dinner”
