Jes' sayin '
Are those alligators? They look really menacing.
They could be Doc. Perhaps I should take care and dispose of them properly!:eat2:
In the interest of safety that is.
...is the most overrated food there is.
There. I said it.

Bacon Weave Choco Taco
^^^ I'm speachless.
Now that is perfect bacon; I love it fried just to the point where the fat turns orange.
What is the ideal ratio of bacon to lettuce and tomato in a BLT?
^ 85% bacon 10% tomatoes 5% lettuce
I suck at math, you will have to do the percentage ratio conversion yourself, haha. I forgot the formula or whatever you call it.
Lots of bacon. Thinly sliced tomato. Lettuce wrap. (no ratio given for bread)
A bacon wave is the only way to make a proper BLT to ensure proper coverage. And if you don't want to make one of those, a bacon maple long-john donut will do
This is an excellent question, Doc. I'm a fan of the 30/30/30 theory. This only includes the filling and not the bread, which is lovely when it's thin and lightly toasted so it doesn't tear up the roof of your mouth. I like brioche and multi grain equally well for this application.
In case you're thinking the numbers don't add up and my math is a little off, there is another element that is often considered a condiment, but in this case, is an integral ingredient. Mayo. Hellman's Real Mayonnaise to be exact, although you could make your own mayo if you're so inclined. 10% is not too much, and be sure to be generous with the pepper. Unless you're using arugula for the greens, which is already very peppery. Baby spinach is also excellent for adding more nutrients without sacrificing taste.
Absolutely! It was remiss of me to ignore the Hellman's, and I thank you for remedying the omission. :bow:
I agree with the conversion but I'd add Swiss to the equation as well.
I've also learned a neat trick to rinse the bacon in water and then bake in a cookie tray.....it shrinks a whole lot less so you yield much more bacon.
Love me bacon. I buy an 11 pound case every two weeks for $40.00 CAD from my local butcher. Best. Bacon. Ever!
Ooooo! That's only about $31.00 US! I'm coming to Canada to buy my bacon!!!
Ryan would be more then happy to accomodate your bacon purchasing needs.
One caveat though ... cash only.
It's really good bacon. Best I have eaten.
Cash only is fine by me. Although I'm hoping I won't be eating all of that bacon by myself. BLT's FOR EVERYONE!!!
We'll need a bigger frying pan.
I'll bring the griddle
