Basically you get a whole bacon rind, put it on a spit, and roast it over a fire. Underneath the bacon, you place thick slices of good bread that has smothered onions and peppers on it. As the bacon cooks, the bacon fat drips onto the bread. When it has enough bacon drippings on it, you eat it up. As the bacon itself cooks, slices are cut off of it and eaten with the bread, too.

I've GOT to try this someday! Doesn't it sound divine? God, I am SO glad I'm not a vegetarian. I hate the thought of animals being killed, but JEEZE, they are so DARN delicious!

Gosh, guess what I have to go to the store and get today for breakfast tomorrow...

Ah yes the Luther . . .
One of the radio shows here in the bay area (if you don't know San Fran is one of the 2 dining Mecca's in North America, some say we are snobby), and they actaully cooked these up. Now I have not had one, but the response by those who tasted them was, unbelievable. Like many the people who were trying them, were sickend by the idea, but inthe end they all had to admit, how great they were.

My job allows me to be a food snob and eat at some of hte best places inthe world . . .but . . .I do have to say, this is an interesting idea!

Back to the pork-related topic... I'm sure some Hungarian somewhere has had pork goulash, in place of beef or chicken... And the best breakfast is bacon and eggs with buttered toast...

Seems that some folks are working to fit bacon into every course of a meal.

The hospital bills may go up but at least you'd have a tasty treat to go with it.

I had some good BBQ ribs the other week... But there aren't many things to beat a good bacon sandwich (on white bread with tomato ketchup).

Well howdyalikethat? Lots o' Hunky ladies, huh? Yeah, my last name is Feher, which means "white" or "fair" in Hunky. Apparantly, in Hungary it's as common a last name as Jones or Smith over here in the US of A. My first name is common as rocks too, unfortunately...
Still, not too many Fehers in my area.

Ewwww! Health food people would call that "food porn!" Yuck! Doesn't look too tasty, myself... sorry.

BTW, if you have any misgivings about eating meat because you feel bad about animals having to die to fulfill our meat lust-- which I admit I have-- I highly suggest: www.sorrycow.com
Here you can do what I did: apologize for animals for their deaths, yet chide them for being so darn delicious.

As well as Hungarian, I'm also Italian, so my last name is of Italian origins but isn't as common as Martini. My first name is of Hebrew origin, yet I'm not Jewish and it's a common as a girl's name can get. My grandmother's Hungarian and from Budapest. Her father was from Eger. My Italian side is from Verona and Paduay. Hence why I love gelati....Anyway, I had bacon and eggs with buttered toast this morning....delicious...

I'm also Irish on my mom's side and her mother was Polish.

I love bacon and eggs too! How do you like your eggs? I usually have mine scrambled, although I like them sunny side up, too. I love dipping my toast in the gooey yolks! However, I like my sunny side eggs well done. If there's any uncooked whites in it it turns me right off. I don't like them "snotty!"

What's your favorite type of toast? I just adore rye. It gets so nice and crunchy when it's toasted!

Uh oh. Getting hungry...

Okay, this is a little off topic, but sheesh, you can't talk about bacon and NOT mention eggs! They go together like... well... Indy and Marion.

Oh, you are so right, West. Good ribs are the bomb, aren't they?! Love, love, love 'em!

That bacon sandwich? Just add lettuce, skip the ketchup and use REAL tomatoes and you've got a BLT sandwich. Great in the late summer when the tomatoes off the plants in the backyard are ripe and tender...

In light of the recent sociological breakdown here at the Raven, I thought I would chime in here on the subject of Bacon.

That cryptic master of the rolls, whose flavor is often under appreciated by the lesser minds, who only view it as something to merely be consumed, and do not truly ruminate it over and over again in your mouth. For those who don't know what I mean, I offer a quote of Bacon

"Certainly virtue is like precious odors, most fragrant when they are incensed, or crushed: for prosperity doth best discover vice, but adversity doth best discover virtue."

Bacon, Francis BACON
