Bacon Explosion Recipe from Chef Larry

OK, I know that there are versions of this floating around but this is the version that "chef buddy Larry" used for the Super Bowl party.

Did I mention that the Steelers won by the way?

OK, here it tis:


BACON EXPLOSION

INGREDIENTS

2 lbs bacon

2 lbs Italian sausage, bulk

1lb cheese, cheddar

BBQ sauce

BBq dry rub spice mix

Layout half the bacon on a sheet of plastic wrap and weave into a lattice design

Cover with BBQ spice rub

Layer sausage on bacon and press out to side in and even layer

Cook the other half of bacon to crisp and crumble

Layer crumbled bacon on sausage layer

Cover that with the cheese

Carefully roll up the sausage layer tightly and pinch close the ends

Roll the lattice bacon layer to close the roll

Use the plastic wrap to help

You can cover with the plastic wrap until ready to cook

When ready to cook coat the lattice layer with the BBQ rub

YOU CAN NOW SMOKE THE LOG OR BAKE IN A ROASTING PAN IN THE OVEN

In the oven roast low and slow , 350 degrees for about 1.5 – 2 hours or until the middle reads 155 on a meat thermometer

For the last 10 minutes of cooking brush with BBQ sauce to get a nice glossy coat on the lattice bacon cover.

Let rest , slice and enjoy on your favorite biscuit or bun

  4. My doctor would kill me for trying this, but the hell with it, you only live once.

    Can you suggest a good wine to accompany this gastric delight?

    Btw, nice to find you again, Mr. Rhino, Sir. :)

    If you're still doing those Rhino jerseys, I still want one. Let me know.

    Respects,
