Finally vegetarians can enjoy the wonder that is Spaghetti Carbonara. Just follow these simple instructions:

  • 750 g fresh spaghetti (actually, we find that tagliatelle is much nicer)
  • 300 g finely grated Pecorino Romano cheese
  • 4 eggs yolks
  • 100 ml double cream (you can add a little Baconnaise too)
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 4 spring onions, finely chopped
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 3 tsp Peppered Bacon Salt


Bring a large pan of water to the boil, add 1 tbps of oil and the pasta and cook until al dente. Next, whisk together the eggs, cream and Pecorino and season generously with Peppered Bacon Salt. While the pasta is cooking, lightly fry the spring onion and garlic in an oiled pan for 3 minutes. Drain the pasta, and transfer to a large serving bowl. While the pasta is still hot pour in the egg mixture and toss well to combine (the heat from the pasta should be sufficient to cook the egg). Add the garlic and sping onion and toss through the pasta. Season to taste with more Peppered Bacon Salt and serve immediately. The Bacon Salt replaces the need for pancetta and black pepper. Delicious!

Make your own Magic Shell using bacon (and top with Bacon Salt!)

Yum.

From the article:

Adding fat soluble flavors
Oil based flavors will blend easily with your Magic Shell since it is a mixture of mostly fat. Food grade essential oils are great for this project for that very reason, just use them sparingly as they are very potent. Some flavoring extracts found in grocery stores are oil based vs alcohol based. Just check their labels. I didn’t test alcohol based flavorings. They will probably work, though may run the risk of not staying in solution when the mixture hardens.

Natural sources of flavor (bacon) outside from extracts can be gently heated in coconut oil (bacon) and left in the cooled fat to imbue their flavor (bacon) This is a method used in perfume making as some scents are more soluble in fat than alcohol. Cinnamon, teas, and other whole spices may yield up different flavor notes under this method of extraction.

My friend in the UK sent me these recently. They are actually incredibly tasty.

This weekend I try Baconnaise Deviled Eggs! I am quite excited.




Yeah, "Bacon Flavour Cereal Snacks".
Brilliant!

Okay, I was very skeptical about Baconnaise.
First off, I am not too into sauces in general. I like my veggies naked, my meats in their original happy juices. I also really dislike mayo. I enjoy it in very small quantities as part of a larger recipe but just the smell of it makes me want to puke.

So I got Baconnaise in the mail. Regular and light! (Thanks guys <3).

I opened the light Baconnaise and sniffed it.
Very bacony.
I looked at it and it didn't have the oily sheen of mayo. A good sign.
I dipped my finger in and tried it.

Holy hell it's good. (My sweetie agrees and he doesn't often exclaim happily over condiments).

No... it really is. My mind is reeling with the possibilties. I want to try the Deviled Egg recipe, add it to Beef Stroganoff, stuffed mushrooms, BLTs (of course), savory tarts of some sort. People... this stuff is amazing. Honestly. My little brain is all aflutter thinking of new things to add it to.

I was sort of hoping I wouldn't like it to gain a kind of credibility as more than just a Bacon Salt fangirl. Then I realized I am thrilled to be a Bacon Salt fangirl.

So I took this picture.

I heart Baconnaise.

So I got my Baconsalt lip balm in the mail!

*flaps hands with happiness*

First impressions:

It smells great and the packaging looks really good. It is standard Chapstick consistency so a little stickier than I prefer but once it warms up on your lips that is gone. At first I was a little disappointed that it didn't have a very strong bacon taste to it. Then the subtle hint of smoky flavor hit my tongue. It is pretty wonderful, actually.

I am pleased and will be spreading the bacon balm love.

And for your viewing pleasure, an amazing bacon scarf!



Thanks for the link, Keith. :)
