I have a friend from Texas, and she told me that she was making “Chicken Fried Steak” one night for her boyfriend. Obviously, I asked “What the heck is Chicken Fried Steak?!” To make a long story short, she explained that it was a tenderized steak that was dipped in batter and deep fried like chicken, hence chicken fried. She went on to explain that “anything could be chicken fried”, which got me thinking… what about bacon?

Chicken Fried Bacon needs something to go with it, though. You could make traditional southern gravy to top it, yes, but I was thinking something along the lines of another meat to compliment it. If I can do Chicken fried Bacon, what about Bacon Fried Chicken. Imagine: Chicken Fried Bacon, with Bacon Fried Chicken. Stay tuned for the details of the latter, soon.

I love pasta. I could eat it every day. Mom rarely cooked it with bacon, though. I know most of you have probably seen a take on this dish on many menus in Italian restaurants, but Penne Alla Vodka (more specifically, the Vodka Sauce itself) is not a traditional Italian dish and, yes, does often contain bacon or pancetta (fancy Italian bacon). Although not traditional, this is still absolutely delicious.

Now, for those of you playing the home game, you might stand up and say, “Vodka (or at least good vodka) doesn’t have any flavour. Why the heck would you put it in anything?” To this I would respond, “Great observation!” But here comes the explanation from the Master’s degree in Chemistry I’m currently working on: water is essentially the only liquid contained within a sauce. When you simmer a sauce, the water can only bring out certain flavours from the tomatoes and herbs. Adding vodka, more specifically ethanol (the alcohol in vodka and all other alcoholic beverages) allows for the extraction of many other flavours into the sauce without adding a flavour of its own. Wine would perform the same function, but wine adds its own flavours, as well. Now, if I only had some BACON vodka.

I decided to use tortellini because it’s an opportunity to easily add flavour to the dish. Oliveiri makes a delectable selection of tortellini – I took the three cheese option. I think it will best fit the rest of the dish.

Well, Seattle Weekly beat me to it and made an awesome bacon infographic. Click on the image below to see the full size.

Carl Warner Creates Fantastic Words of Bacon and Meat

The Republic of Bacon is not a real place. I mean, you can’t buy a plane ticket to it and we don’t have any border disputes (currently – some of those vegan websites have been encroaching on our turf lately, tho). It’s more a place that belongs in one’s heart than on any map. However, if the Republic of Bacon did exist, I imagine it would look like one of Carl Warner’s Meat Foodscapes. After the jump below, I’ll show you some of his amazing works, will give you some idea of how he creates them.
