The odds are above average that the MRS & I will be attending the football game between the Wisconsin Badgers and some State University in Ohio.

The folks that invited us have a fetish - no, make that obsession - with bacon. They have asked me to cook for the group at the tailgate party.

I figure that I would bring out the 'good stuff' as far as bacon goes. The double smoked extra thick bacon packaged with extra fat. I have made ABTs, pulled pork, and Wendy Sue's Favorite Cajun Shrimp for them at Road America in the past - so they already know that I cook up good beer food.

I just want something to knock their socks off using this special bacon.

This recipe will be great for tailgating. It can be prepared ahead of time and served as a side for anything BBQ.

Wrap 1/2 a whole waterchestnut in bacon and hold with toothpick. Bake 350 1/2 hour. Make a bbq sauce from ketchup and brown sugar (or your favorite bbq sauce) and bake another 1/2 hour. Always a hit when we bring them to parties.

From Smoke and Spice...Chicken from hell! Marinated chicken inside a section of jalapeno wrapped with bacon. I like onion and green pepper slivers inside with sauces on the side for dipping.

Thanks for the link. I may have to give that a test run using standard bacon next week. I can see making that Friday morning, packing the pan and all with my beer in the cooler then getting on the plane to C'bus with something like that.

If the Badgers and Buckeyes don't start playing better - it could be an early kickoff cutting into tailgating time.

Wow, I think I'd choose this one myself. I just left the site and printed out the recipe and even signed up for newsletters and emails. That 1 recipe had 1003 replys. Even found a Maple Bourbon Marinade/Glaze that I copied and will try. My vote for sure.

I have only done it once but I think pig candy (with the cayenne in at least a 10:1 ratio with the brown sugar) would be a great way to show off a special bacon. However, if it is extra thick, you may want to nuke it a little first and then take it with you. If partially cooked, it would be easier to get it crisp w/o burning the brown sugar coating.

And my favorite team is any team that beats that team from some "State" university in Ohio.

Go Blue:mrgreen: What state is East Lansing in??

If it's finger food, I agree with MOINKS & CLOINKS. A bacon weave wrapped around a stuffed fatty makes a great sandwich on an english muffin. Stuff the fatty with smoked till cooked and diced bacon along with some cheese (your choice, mine is cheddar) and some diced japs n onions...

Bacon rolled fattie with a Cheddar bratwurst middle.

Both of those sound good, but...

What about a bacon weaved fatty, stuffed with chopped bacon, scrambled eggs and cheddah.

Maybe chop a boiled egg, stuff it in a jalapeno, wrapped in bacon, wrapped in sausage, wrapped in bacon?

You could get some good kielbasa, bratwurst, italian sausage, or breakfast links and wrap in bacon, then stuff in fatty and wrap fatty in bacon.

Man, I hate I skipped breakfast.

Get a whole mess of that bacon you are refering to...Grind enough for a Fattie, fry some of that bacon up and use it as a stuffing in that Fattie along with anything else you like in there, then wrap that Fattie in that bacon. Ehh, huh...Wadya think?

How about a bacon wrapped fattie stuffed with bacon candy and bacon brittle. Makes a great sandwich when you cook biscuits with bacon bits (crumbled bacon, not the store bought kind).

Serve this with bacon cicles and bacon flavored vodka and you have a great meal.

I have a couple of these in the oven right now. A circular for those freaks of nature that don't like onions - and this one for the regular folks that appreciate the flavor onions add to a dish.

Cannot wait to reheat them in the morning.

has anyone said Tuna nuts? Sorry, i live on the coast and this time of year, all the folks have a good tuna nut recipe. Since tuna can be eaten kinda raw, we wrap it in bacon, with a seasoning that is unique to the cook...rond here tuna wrapped in bacon is a local favorite, for those in the know.
