I made low carb bacon cookies. Coconut, peanut butter, stevia, butter, salt, nutritional yeast, 100% cacao chocolate and of course bacon. Keeps me away from the donuts.

BaconFest '18 is complete. The event was scaled back a bit from previous years. Some people actually thought putting their job duties first would be a good idea which interfered with participation. Priorities, people. Still, we had a fun and creative year. Here are the highlights:

Bacon wrapped meatballs
Bacon stuffed French toast
Bacon hashbrown casserole
Finnish pancake (new to me - a real treat)
Bacon, cream cheese, jalapeno, and egg casserole (oh, momma)
Bacon white fudge
Bacon dough twists with 'everything' bagel seasoning
Bacon pecan pound cake with bacon pecan caramel goolaze
Biscuit and bacon-sausage gravy casserole

As always there were a couple of well-meaning folks who tried to sneak in some health food, but this was not the time or place for such tomfoolery.

I'm now in a light bacon coma. Lipitor and Glucophage are on board doing their job. My attention has returned to weight loss.

BaconFest '19 is in the books. It was a disappointing turnout this year. We had several out sick or dealing with life's drama, but that certainly didn't keep the rest us from enjoying a bacon glut. Casseroles seemed to be the theme this year. Every form of egg, bacon, cheese, and tater tots you can imagine showed up, each neatly tucked into disposable aluminum pans. There was also a fair selection of toothpick skewered stuff wrapped in bacon.
The perennial favorite, biscuit and bacon gravy casserole, was the first pan empty. This stuff is truly something special. Imagine bacony biscuits and gravy cooked to a consistency of bread pudding. It makes a thud when it hits bottom and you feel like you're carrying a baby for a bit, but oh my it's good. As we've seen in years past, there's always a dogooder or two that bring fruit and vegetable trays, but at least no one tried to bring kale anything this year (although kale chips weren't bad with gravy on them).

There were three real standouts in terms of uniqueness:

Bacon pumpkin pie cake - yes, it was the best of both worlds. A crusty, cakey layer at the botom covered with a fluffy pumpkin custard stuff, topped with a bacon enhanced crumble.

Bacon glazed brownies - thick, dense brownies topped with a dark, sweet, super sticky crumbled bacon glaze.

Bacon Bock beer bread with bacon bourbon pumpkin butter - <tooting my own horn> Shiner Bock beer bread loaded with crumbled bacon, served with pumpkin butter loaded with crumbled bacon and Four Roses bourbon. I was very pleased with how it all turned out.

Dang Jim, now I'm expecting you to have some of that bread with you the next time we meet.

Very nice! The beer bread sort of reminds me of the bread i used to get at the old Wunche Brothers in Old Town. That, and their peach cobbler, which I bet would've gone very well with bacon bits thrown in.

I've been cooking the thickest bacon I can get my hands on. I cut up the finest blue cheese I can find then mix the two together and smother it with local honey. Breakfast of champions aristocrats.

BaconFest '20 is done. The Kung Flu reduced our numbers and offerings this year, but the spirit of feast prevailed. There was a reduction in sugary treats and an increase in casserole-ish dishes. We ate good and had fun in spite of the increased safety practices and distancing.

Here's the highlight reel:

- Cheesy, buttery, bacon grits
- Sausage and egg stuffed croissants wrapped in peppered bacon
- Bacon wrapped jalapenos stuffed with sausage and cheese
- Bundt breakfast casserole (eggs, biscuits, hash browns, cheese, and lots of bacon)
- Biscuit and gravy casserole
- Bacon banana bread
- Bacon/English toffee cookies (oh, my...)
- Tiny bacon bourbon pecan pie treats

Hog jowl is not bacon, but pork fat is still tasty.

I just cooked up seven slices in a big pot. When it was done I poured most of the grease into my bacon grease treasure jar and threw a chopped up head of cabbage into the pot with the rest of the bacon grease. Stirred and cooked it down for five or so minutes and then put two cans of corned beef in there and simmered for 25 minutes. It was delicious along with the bacon I had cooked. Low carb too. Plenty left over for a few more meals too.
