Chicken Fried Bacon

I thought we'd plumbed the depths with the recent discussion about bacon candy, but the folks over at seriouseats.com have gotten ahead of us somehow. There's even a picture of this paean to pork, served with cream gravy, no less!

    For Christmas breakfast what would be a good side dish for this and the bacon brittle?

        Sounds great, with a bacon latte.

        Bacon s'mores for dessert. After all, on Christmas morning you should have dessert with breakfast, shouldn't you?

          See my "Sunk in the Pork Abyss" post about the bacon baklava recipe in January's "Food and Wine."

        Oh, my lord that looks good. I may have to turn in my CH membership card. Bacon. And cream gravy. And deep fried. This stuff looks, oh, man. Words fail me. And she put *more* salt on it. It's like a train crash--I can't rip my eyes away.

          A year or so ago Saveur published an article on tempura bacon. Same concept but of course different batter...and no gravy. A strip or two as an app seems perfectly reasonable to me...a plate full w/ gravy, no so much...but yes I would eat it.
