        I second this. But then what else doesn't goes well with bacon.

      2. ipsedixit RE: bostonbakedbean Oct 11, 2006 06:51 PM

        Honey

        Caramel

        Hershey's Syrup

        Cream cheese

        Avocado (or guacamole)

        BBQ Sauce

            Avacado? Really? I'm game, but it just doesn't sound that appealing.

              Try it.

              I kid you not ... very very good, esp. if you are an avocado fan.

                      Butter (PB goes atop the butter).

                      And, if I omit the jam (or make it a more savory jam), then there is the fabled BLT where PB replaces mayo.

                              I was waiting to see this. Definately a nice combo of sweet and creamy and tart. On toast I might add.

                              Even if some of the ideas seem odd, I am getting the feeling we are all a little pregnant. Many of the offerings sound like a late night pick-up for an expectant spouse.

                              I promise to try most (if not all) of your chowish suggestions. Will report back.

                                Crushed Oreo Cookies. Yum.

                                          White turkey breast, depending on whether you've got a good low-sugar marmalade to work with. The key is more PB. Could play with cranberry sauce and this next month.

                                                PB&J with bacon didn't do anything for me. I suspect this dish would only come to life if there were copious amounts of bacon grease included, as in frying the bread maybe.

                                                Lays original potato chips. Used to eat that all the time as a kid. Funny how several of us figured that one out.
                                                I also used to eat ketchup on white bread with potato chips crushed in the middle.

                                                  toast the bread, keep it open-faced, "P" on one slice and "J" on the other. eat "P" with bacon, and "J" with an over-medium fried egg. I kid you not.

                                                            PB & J just on saltines is good b/c of the salt. Crushing them and sticking on a sandwich is like the Lay's I believe, just less greasy. Another good addition is crushed Ritz.

                                                            White chocolate is good.

                                                            Also make a standard PBJ, then dip in milk-egg-little flour batter, then fry like a croque monsieur...
