I give you Deep fried bacon

First there was Wendy's "Baconator," two quarter-pound burgers topped off with six strips of bacon. Hot 'n' juicy indeed.

Then J&D's smoky Bacon Salt, billed as delivering the flavor without the fat, the frying or the filthy kitchen, hit the shelves of Meijer, Jewel and other area grocery stores in September.
And this month, we saw the unveiling of breaded, deep-fried bacon -- dressed in country gravy -- at Risque Cafe in Lake View.

If we know anything about these strips of cured and smoked meat, it's this: Bacon is the new black.

It's a billion-dollar-a-year business and that's just retail sales alone.

At Risque Cafe, 3419 N. Clark, country-fried bacon ($6) is on the appetizer menu. Raw bacon strips are put in an egg wash, dredged in a heavily peppered flour and then deep fried in vegetable oil, says chef Andrew Niemeyer.

A white gravy is served on the side. What you have is something that sounds very much like chicken fried steak, which fits in well with the barbecue smoke shack theme Risque is going for.

"It's something my friends and I tossed around when I was in culinary school," says Niemeyer, a 2005 graduate of the Cooking and Hospitality Institute of Chicago. "Just hearing about it makes your heart skip a beat."

So this whole wonderful idea was his, something to remember when you curse the results of your next cholesterol test.

If you don't want your bacon messed with, then head over to Bucktown's Chinaski's Bar, 1935 N. Damen, which offers all-you-can eat bacon on the first Monday of every month. For free.

"All true religions have to have some monthly faith meeting," says one employee, when asked about the purpose of the bottomless bacon bowl.

If you want a meal in a bun, check out Wendy's $4.69 Baconator, introduced last year. With six slices of bacon, it probably should be washed down with a little Lipitor.

To keep from melting, you need lots of batter, preferably tempura.

Negative, it would explode due to the rapid thermal expansion leaving you covered in hot oil, chocolate and nougat. Interesting way to die.

As for it falling apart in the deep fryer; it could be one of two things:

1. Not enough batter/wrong consistency, etc.

2. Oil's not hot enough.

I never heard about that one. I suppose it would cause the water, which would be trapped as ice, to cause a more violent effect. Usually, people light themselves on fire when they have too much oil in the pot, or a lot of water.

When I worked in a restaurant, we would make our mozzarella sticks ahead of time and freeze them. When we got an order, we took them straight from the freeze and put them in the deep fryer. I never had an explosion out of the ordinary fryer bubble up. I'd suppose a frozen candy bar would not be much different.

Anyway, I'm willing to bet money it would not "explode".

Oops on re-post , mY bAdd ....

Now, to the news :


Baconnaise™, available in Regular and Lite, is the newest addition to the J&D’s family.

We started with a customer request to make “spreadable bacon, namely mayonnaise.” At first, we were skeptical. Mostly because neither one of us really liked mayo much.

Then we started talking to people about whether a bacon-flavored mayonnaise would fly. We heard from a lot of people that just couldn’t wait for us to make it so they could use it on everything. They told us that sometimes they didn’t want salt, they just wanted bacon – so just mixing Bacon Salt and mayonnaise wouldn’t cut it. They wanted less mayo taste and more bacon taste – it should be Baconnaise, not “Mayocon” we heard. And many people requested a Lite and a Regular version, because some people loved Lite mayos and some people hated it (with a passion).

So we set out on another bacon-flavored adventure. Could we make a mayonnaise product that met our own high bacony standards? Could we get people as excited as they were for Bacon Salt (for which shrines have been built and songs have been written)?

It was at that point that we began a very unhealthy morning routine: eat a slice of bacon, try a version of Baconnaise, eat a slice of bacon. Compare. Improve. Repeat. Over the 6 months it took us to make Baconnaise, we estimate that we probably ate 20 pounds of bacon, consumed 5 large jars of mayonnaise and took 2 years off of our lives – looking for that exact and delicious flavor that we would be proud to call Baconnaise.

And then we did it. We tasted the smooth and slightly smoky taste that would henceforth be known as Baconnaise, The Ultimate Bacon Flavored Spread. We put it on sandwiches, salads, dips, fish, chicken, burgers and more. And they were all delicious!

But was it just us? We wanted to know. Had we ruined our taste buds eating so much bacon and mayo? So we had other people taste it. Our friends. Our family. The electrician. The box maker. The women at the deli. Anyone that came into our office. Random people on the street.

And here’s what we heard:

* From our friends: “Dude. Are you serious?? That’s incredible. Dude. Dude. Dude.” (it’s a Gen X thing)
* From our families, who, along with us, taste tested more mayonnaise than any human being should ever eat: “You’re making me taste that again? Fine… Oh. Oh wow. Oh man. That’s perfect! Can I have more?” (sorry, none left)
* From the electrician: “Whoa. Give me some, and the lights in your office are free. Damn.” (free lights, yeah!)
* From the women at the deli: “Ooooh. Get me a sandwich. I’m putting this on a sandwich right now. Nice.” (turkey and Baconnaise: win)
* From the box maker (with Texas accent): “OK, now. Tell me a sandwich that wouldn’t taste better with that?? What wouldn’t I put this on? Why would I ever use mayonnaise? Why? I’m never buying regular mayonnaise again.” (we still don’t have an answer for that one)

But don’t just take our word for it, check out some of the quotes and videos of friends and random strangers trying Baconnaise here [on the site]. And then try it for yourself and you’ll see what everyone is talking about!

(Interviewer) "So, are there any pills, powders, shakes or anything like that involved"
(Toby) "No."
(Interviewer) "Ah, perhaps a machine like the abcurler"
(Toby) "No, rather it involves alternately lying around and walking around and a minimalist diet"
(Interviewer moves from false surprise to false enthusiasm) "So, it fits in with the 'go-go-go' lifestyles we all have...
(Toby) No... no I have no idea what you're talking about

(Awkward silence. The interviewer moves uncomfortably in her seat. Toby gets up, cracks his back and sits down. He resumes looking angrily at the interviewer)

(Interviewer) "You know, things like picking the kids up from school, work commitments..."
(Toby) "Look here you stupid bitch, I have had a failed marriage and got rejected for a huge job contract. THOSE are the sorts of things that get the Stress (TM) diet to continue onward. It's a sort of negative momentum. Look at the ascetics in the world, bunch of wiry scrawny bastards the lot of them."

Ok. First off I'm a certified PT and Nutritionist which has been validated on Bullshido.
So I have some experience in this field.

Second, each individual is done a case by case basis. "Skinny" is a relative term and therefore can not be used as fair assessment.

175 lbs for a male of 5'11 is not by any means a stretch of the imagination, nor does it make him heavy.

15th January 09, 07:17 PM
200 - 210 would be your upper limit on the BMI scale. It's not really a bad system at all if you're an Average Joe, it's just that Equipoise doesn't like it because it calls him fat. He doesn't realize that the question was whether or not whatever weight we were arguing about was even skinny. But he's not very smart so who's surprised?

Equipoise
15th January 09, 07:50 PM
The BMI is such an horribly inaccurate measure of body composition and health.

MJS, stop already. Your area of expertise extends to pot smoking, mooching off of your parents and what you read in last month's Cosmo. You're the last one that should be making any comments about fitness.

As for being skinny, I already told you that it's a relative term and therefore is a poor determinant of what is a good body composition. Therefore you can only make a conclusion about someone's fitness on a case by case basis. In other words, take your head out of your ass so you stop spouting off rampant bullshit.

Feryk- Correct! However using the BMI to determine your body composition level is using a set of basic assumptions with little actual logic or science to determine the answer. Therefore it's worthless.

Cullion
15th January 09, 08:01 PM
I'm fat at 22% bodyfat at 5'9". If I had 10% bodyfat (with no muscle loss) I'd weigh about 190lbs. Last time I weighed 190lbs I had visible abs, so that sounds about right.

I once dropped down to 165lbs through shitty lifestyle, which you would think was a healthy weight for my height, but I had hollow cheeks and felt weak and lethargic.

Mike Tyson had an 'obese' BMI all through the height of his career, even when he was down to fighting weight.

BMI just isn't very accurate at all. I just have broad shoulders and built up muscle in my teens from doing a lot of bodyweight exercises. My bodyfat % (and looking in the mirror) is what tells me if I'm fat or not.

We have some guys on the SRT that look overweight and aren't ripped but they can perform fantastically in the areas of PT with little problem. It's a case by case basis.

I support fluoride. I've never had a filling as a result.

What part of "Average Joe" is too hard for you guys? That's exactly what BMI is a measure of, your bodyweight compared to an average. You're all just as wrong as anyone else would be if they tried to use outliers to disprove an average.

But actually the funniest part is how hypocritical you guys are being. Some measure of general health suggests you might be too fat? NUH UH IT MUST BE WRONG. Why don't you tell me about the fluoride in my water too?
actually your comparing your mass to your frame. So when the bmi tells you your overweight, it's saying you might have more mass than your frame can support.

And it's not a good indication of fitness level or health... at all.
