Inside: a tribute to the wonder that is Bacon Salt.


After the delightful R343L generously gifted us a jar of bacon-ny goodness, we have made good use of it.
  • Chicken wings and thighs - sprinkle generously over and roast in the oven as normal.
  • Stir into some warm mayonnaise, put back in the fridge and leave overnight.  Instant bacon in a sandwich.
  • On chicken flavour supernoodles.
  • Lightly toast bread, put some slabs of cheddar on top then a light sprinkle of the magic bacon salt before grilling.
I have about 1/3rd of a jar left.

Mmm, bacon salt.  Any other bacon salt based culinary innovations I have missed?

This reminds me by R343L (4.00 / 1) #13 Mon Nov 02, 2009 at 11:10:16 AM EST
That I must obtain another bottle. I left my last bottle at a friend's birthday party -- I would not be so uncouth as to try to retrieve it, given how much joy it brought (I almost wrote "brang") everyone. So perhaps I shall rock the night bike ride and go to one of the stores that carries it -- it's out of my way, but ... it's bacon salt!

That bacon salt is pretty good on popcorn as well. When I noted I got a new bottle (which she knew was the new improved formulation), she demanded I bring it to game night so we could have bacon popcorn ...

Apparently it was vegan friendly by Breaker (4.00 / 1) #10 Mon Nov 02, 2009 at 09:18:01 AM EST
Until recently, but they added milk powder.

What if everything you ever wanted... by gzt (4.00 / 2) #15 Mon Nov 02, 2009 at 02:14:37 PM EST
...came in a ROCKET CAN?

Then, back up, replace "rocket can" with "salt shaker", and there you have bacon salt. It makes everything taste like it has a little bacon in it.

I have no idea what bacon salt is by Driusan (4.00 / 1) #3 Mon Nov 02, 2009 at 08:28:23 AM EST
But you seem to have missed the obvious "sprinkle on bacon, fry up, and wrap with bacon."

I used a microwave egg poacher thing, and added a pinch of bacon salt before cooking.

Bacon and eggs on toast, cooked at work. 

WIN.

warm mayo? by Merekat (4.00 / 1) #7 Mon Nov 02, 2009 at 09:03:40 AM EST
Sounds like a recipe for food poisoning.


Not that warm. by Breaker (2.00 / 0) #11 Mon Nov 02, 2009 at 09:20:07 AM EST
But in mayonnaise straight from the fridge, it stays granular.  You need to let the chill off the mayonnaise, that seems to do the trick.

risotto. by misslake (2.00 / 0) #25 Tue Nov 03, 2009 at 06:14:28 PM EST
all soups.

and stews.

french toast.

grilled cheese.

eggs-in-baskets.

ok, so all egg or cheese dishes need a little bacon salt.

potatoes.

roasted veggies.

it is SO VERY TASTY!!!

Oooh roast veggies with bacon by Breaker (2.00 / 0) #26 Wed Nov 04, 2009 at 05:27:23 AM EST
What do you mean by French toast?  Dip bread in beaten egg + milk and pan fry?


[ Parent ]
yes! by misslake (2.00 / 0) #28 Wed Nov 04, 2009 at 09:21:43 AM EST
i seem to be the only person whose family treated french toast as a savoury dish for using up stale bread, so i am used to having it salty.
everyone else i have ever met puts sugar and cinnamon in the eggs and eats it with fruit and syrup rather than with pepper and bacon as i did.

bacon eggs and toast in one tasty fried slab of goodness. it's better that way.

We used to have both. by Breaker (2.00 / 0) #29 Wed Nov 04, 2009 at 10:45:52 AM EST
I'd have one with Aromat Savoury Seasoning on, and one with jam on for afters.

My sisters would look upon this as clear evidence that boys are barbarians.
