Vegans, Avert Your Eyes

Double Daddy digs some meat.

In a faith-bolstering manifestation of what goes around comes around/live by the Golden Rule/Put Good in-Get Good Out/karmic fashion, on Father's Day eve, as a Daddy and husband par excellence, Scott was invited to a men-only, meatfest.

The internet sleuthing for the ideal piece to pot luck was extensive; but before too long, my beloved (cholesterol controlled by Lipitor) man had unearthed a caveman's delight: The Bacon ExplosionTM. Yes, this cavalcade of carnage is so impressive, its creators logged it legally via trademark.

As any meat-loving man with male offspring would do, he brought his seven-year-old son into the preparation process. With this bacon-y behemoth, the "cooking" was closer to a craft project. [Again, now would be the right time for any vegetarians to look away. Truth told, it even gets to me a bit...]

It began innocently enough---simply frying up a panful of pork bacon...

Then, it took a wicked turn with a weaving on wax paper (please note the greasy thumb)...

Using the mat of meat as a base, he then pressed on two pounds of sweet sausage and sprinkled the crumbled bacon on top, along with an amazing cinnamon sweet rub.

The uppermost meat mass was then rolled into a sausage "snake."
(Wonder how many web-surfers will be disappointed Google Search brought them here with that phrase...) Sarah thought this stage much resembled a bed.

You know what happened next...and it required four hands on deck.


The house does smell amazing...and I'm guessing it will for quite some time. Although I do wonder if all the rumored bears in Richmond will now be drawn to our doorstep...

Happy Father's Day, All!

That is a serious carnivore-only kind of project! But I bet it was delish :)

Happy Father's Day to Double Daddy!

That is totally disgusting and completely wonderful all at the same time! I bet if you dipped that in chocolate, you could sell it easily as a PMS remedy!!!

Oh yes. We had a good time making that as well. Well...our 'version' of it had meatloaf instead of sausage, but MAN was it GOOOOOOD. :)

Just showed that to my hubby! He actually makes a meal called "Matambre" that has a flank steak and rolled up inside is strips of ham, smoked sausage, bell pepper, carrots, celery, & romano cheese, then its all rolled up and strips of bacon cover the outside. Its then grilled and its amazing!!! Sooo good!

We must be one of the biggest meat eating nations in the world - so tell Double daddy if he ever visits South Africa he will feel right at home. (And he can come over for a Blue bull steak - that is one huge steak cut through the whole leg of beef.

Jamie said...

Wow! That's quite the hunk of meat! I bet it was awesome!

Sharlene said...

I love it. Anything that involves weaving bacon is right up my alley. Amazing.

Tracy said...

To show my Scott, or not show my Scott...that is the question. :) Looks like fun, though.
