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!

      Oh yes, please! One pound would be nice. Thanks.

    2. 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.

        Red Cat restaurant in NYC had a Tempura Bacon salad on their menu..

      2. 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.

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

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