Bacon Bacon Bacon!!!

Last night I had a little gathering of friends come over to compete in Best Dish.  Best Dish is a competition to see who can cook up the BEST DISH.  We have this once a month and every month the "secret" ingredient changes.  It's not really secret.  I guess it's technically the star ingredient.  Anywho, this month's ingredient was BACON.  Everyone prepares a dish where bacon is the star ingredient.  We bring enough of our dish to share, we try all of the dishes, then vote on who we like the best.  You can't vote for your own, though.  The hostess, does not participate, because she will be the one providing the prizes for the Best Dish.  It can be any prize of any denomination.  Last night, I provided drinks and 2 prizes.  The prizes were $10 gift cards to Trader Joe's.  We had several great contenders, as you can see.  All of the food prepared, and drink, was excellent.  But, there can only be one winner...well, in our case, two.  And the winner is....... (drumroll please).....BACON WRAPPED JALAPENO POPPERS & BACON INFUSED BOURBON!!!!!!!!

Bacon Chicken & Pineapple Kabob

Bacon and Cheese Muffins

Bacon Brittle

Deviled Eggs with Bacon

Bacon Wrapped Jalapeno Poppers

Bacon Infused Bourbon for Old Fashioneds


  1. That's such a great idea! I'd like to start something like this with my friends in the area. I'm really curious about the bacon brittle. How did that taste?

  2. Thanks! It's so much fun! Lots of eating, drinking and socializing :) Next month's "secret" ingredient are apples. I'm excited to see what people will create. The bacon brittle was great! Although my friend who made it, was not pleased with it. It was a nice combo of sweet and salty. I would definitely make it.

    One thing that I am trying to put together, are the recipes from each month of this little get together. So at the end of the year, we have a cookbook of sorts. And then that can be a prize for the winner as well.

    Good luck with your Best Dish! Let me know how it turns out!
