Happy National Waffle Day!!! – Chocolate Bacon Waffles Recipe

3

2013-08-04-chocolate-waffle-586x322

It’s National Waffle Day! On this day in 1869, a man named Cornelius Swartwout received the first U.S. patent for a waffle iron. Waffles are a delightful breakfast food and can be paired with almost any topping. Butter and maple syrup, fruit and whipped cream, a big scoop of ice cream, or even a helping of fried chicken—the choice is yours!

Did you know that the first waffles originated in Ancient Greece? It’s true! The Greeks would cook flat cakes called “obelios” between two metal pans held over a fire. Today, all you need is a waffle iron and a yummy recipe for waffle batter.

Crispy waffles made with Bisquick™ – and filled with crispy bacon and chocolate.

INGREDIENTS

WAFFLE BATTER

2 cups Bisquick™ Original baking mix

1 1/3 cups milk

1 large egg

2 tablespoons vegetable oil

FILLINGS

8 ounces bacon, crispy

1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

Syrup, for serving

DIRECTIONS

  • Add bacon strips to a skillet and cook over medium heat until crispy. You want the strips very crispy, as they won’t cook further in the waffle. Cook for about 15 minutes.
  • Remove bacon onto a few paper towels to let drain.
  • Stir together batter ingredients in a medium bowl.
  • Heat your waffle iron and add a thin layer of batter to the iron. The exact amount will vary depending on your iron model. I add about 1/3 cup of batter in my large iron.
  • Top the batter with big strips of bacon and chocolate chips.
  • Add another layer of batter on top of the filling. It’s okay if the batter overflows a bit.
  • Close the iron and cook as directed by the iron instructions.

Remove waffle and serve immediately with syrup and topped with extra chocolate chips!

National Filet Mignon Day!!! – Filet Mignon wrapped in Bacon (Your welcome)

18813

National Filet Mignon Day is observed annually on August 13th.  Usually from a steer or heifer, a filet mignon is a steak cut of beef taken from the smaller end of the tenderloin of the beef carcass.

  • Filet mignon is French for “cute fillet” or “dainty fillet”.
  • In French, filet mignon may be called “filet de boeuf”, which translates to beef fillet in English.
  • When found on a French menu, filet mignon may also refer to pork rather than beef.

The tenderloin from which the filet mignon comes from, is the most tender cut of beef and is also considered the most desirable and therefore the most expensive.

Filet mignon is commonly cut into 1 inch to 2 inch thick portions, grilled and then served as is.  When found in grocery stores, filet mignon is already cut into bacon wrapped portions.  The usual method for cooking the filet mignon is to cook it on high heat by either grilling, pan frying, broiling or roasting.   Restaurants may sometimes prepare the fillets served in a cognac cream sauce, au poivre with peppercorns or in a red wine reduction.

Due to the low levels of fat found in the fillets, bacon is often used in cooking.  The bacon is wrapped around the fillet and pinned closed with a wooden toothpick.  Flavor is added from the bacon and this process keeps the fillet from drying out during the cooking process.

Everyone loves Bacon – Kevin Bacon demands more Nudity

Kevin Bacon demands more male nudity in Hollywood

Kevin Bacon has a bone to pick with you, Hollywood. Male actors are rarely given the opportunity to be gratuitously naked, and it’s not fair. 

But that’s all going to change now with the #FreeTheBacon movement.
