11  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Looking for a SUPER bacon recipe on: August 30, 2012 04:52:07 AM
Sat we are going to a bacon party ... I'm looking for something quick to make that is really good, must contain bacon.
I would prefer it be something that can be served at room temp & not need be heated at the party.

I was thinking maybe slicing strips of bacon & turkey bacon in half length wise and wrapping the strips around small bundles of asparagus & green beans, sprinkling with salt & pepper & baking. Making a bacon ranch dressing for dipping.
How does that sound? 
Do you think they would be ok room temp?

Another idea was do do like a bacon candy. Making a basic glaze (like a glazed donut glaze) with milk, powdered sugar a dash of vanilla & maybe a dash of maple extract?  Mix the glaze with very crispy baked bacon, rough chopped with chopped pecans & dropping in little bite size piles to dry?
How does that sound?

Any other suggestions?

I love cinnamon as well ... In general using  herbs & spices is a good diet tip. If your food is more flavorful you will savor it & eat slower & it will be more enjoyable. 
I LOVE baby carrots.  =) I make a simple dip with a little low fat sour cream or low fat plain yogurt a squeeze of  grainy mustard & dill, great with carrots & celery. When you have an empty dill pickle jar toss in some raw washed & dried chopped veggies, goo topping for salad, crunchy & helps to reduce the "need" for croutons or bacon bits.

It's probably already on here, but can be super cheap & changed up as you like it. Veggie Pasta salad. Cook pasta elbows or mini shells al dente rise quickly & drain very well. Mix with any frozen veggies, diced fresh veggies, diced cheese or meat & add italian or ranch dressing. good as a side dish ir can  a meal too if you add a little meat. A great way to use up left overs & little bitss of this & that.

I loved to get a bag of dried chick peas (chichi beans) cook them in crock pot. Then mix with frozen peas & rice with a little Italian dressing. Top with a sprinkle of grated cheese.

I love creamed tuna with peas or creaked spinach with a little diced ham over mashed potatoes.

Can I add orange zest to melt & pour soap?
Do I need to dry it first?  or do anything so it won't mold or get weird?
