Don’t get us wrong, we really do love you. At breakfast you shine brightly, bringing ordinary eggs with you to a new level of deliciousness. In salads or dishes where you act as a flavoring agent or even the main ingredient you can not only hold your own, you thrive. But we’re frankly getting a little tired of this kind of thing:
Yes, readers, that there is French fry-coated bacon on a stick. Yes it’s sort of a joke but no, it’s kind of not. The fries apparently use corn-dog batter to stick to the bacon.
It’s not like things like bacon bloody Marys and bacon ice cream (well, maybe bacon ice cream) are necessarily gross. It’s just that we’re getting a little tired of bacon’s roll as a culinary punchline, no matter how delicious. Something needs to step in and take it’s place as the obscure flavor of the month. We’re thinking maybe beef jerky. Got any ideas of your own?
