Each month...six friends get together for great food and good times! Check out the recipes and rundown.
The Shooks hosted and made the appetizers and entree. The Jaegers brought over tasty beverages, and the Shalins were in charge of dessert. The theme was Bacon Bonanza. Here's how it broke down:
Bacon Wrapped Pineapple
Cayenne Candied Bacon
Spinach Salad with Warm Bacon Dressing
Bacon, Chicken* and Tomato Pasta
*Chicken was an extra the recipe didn't call for
Vanilla Ice Cream with Caramelized Bacon and Sensational Chocolate Sauce
PDT's Bacon-Infused Old Fashioned
The Rundown: My arteries feel violated. Even the bourbon cocktail was infused with bacon fat. I honestly don't even want to look at bacon for a good two weeks...maybe longer. I particularly enjoyed the Cayenne Candied Bacon. Thick cuts of bacon, super sweet, with a nice, slow burn at the end. Everything was great, and even the crumbled bacon bits worked well in the dessert.
