Jeremy used to joke that the only chicken recipes he could make was chicken alfredo. Well we know how healthy alfredo sauce is for you. But that's honestly child's play compared to what he came up with last night
We were listening to a comedian, Jim Gaffigan, who was going on and on about bacon. Who doesn't love bacon!? Jeremy looks at me and says, with a scary brightness in his eyes, "Why hasn't anyone DEEP FRIED bacon?"
I blinked, stared at him for a bit, and replied, "Well, darling, probably because it would kill you".
Ok, we don't really use pet names like darling, but it fit.
Unconvinced, he continued to mention it for a week or so. Last weekend he smiled nicely and asked, "Can we have a superbowl party here?"
"Can I make deep fried bacon!?"
And he did. In all it's deep fried baconey glory.
Happy Ending: No one actually died in the process nor after consumption. I might also add that I always do appreciate Jeremy in the kitchen despite his artery clogging recipes!
COUNTRY FRIED BACON
Jeremy used a deep fryer
2 cups flour
1 lb thick cut bacon
1/4 cups milk
salt and pepper to taste
Maple syrup (for dipping)
Preheat oven to 350. Whip up your eggs and milk in a bowl. Combine flour, salt and pepper in flat pan or bowl. Cut your bacon in half. Dip in eggs and then coat in flour. Place in deep fryer for about 5 minutes or until looking bubbly. Remove and place on a baking sheet. Put in oven for a few minutes or until golden brown. Serve with maple syrup.
