Bacon-luck @ Will & Hai's

  • Jul 14, 2013 · 12:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Sorry veggie lusters, this one's for worshippers of the great bacon goddess!  What in tarnation is a bacon-luck?  Well, think of a potluck, but specializing in bacon!!  Strange, you say??  Well, there are thousands of top-secret bacon recipes, passed down from generation to generation through folk-tales and folksong.

BACON needs to be a primary ingredient in your dish; think of something new, unique, and salivatingly sensuous!  Whip up that bacon bowl that bravely burrows boisterously upon the bountiful buds of our believing, brave tongues.

--------------------

This is a potluck event.  Attendees should make enough of a home-made, unique bacon-focused recipe so that all 18 attendees can have a sample size.  SAMPLE SIZE only as we will be having up to 18 tastes!!

Please be creative and maybe even try to make something you haven't tried before.  There are many appetizer, dinner, and dessert recipes that use bacon quite imaginatively.

Bringing a HOME-MADE dish with bacon as a primary ingredient is a REQUIREMENT.  No store-bought dishes please.

If you would like to bring anything else, that is completely optional but not expected.

We will provide home-made bacon cocktails to accompany the fun.  We will also provide all plates/napkins/utensils and soft drinks.

Our home is smoke and pet free.

    At the gate near building 1, can someone let me in? Thanks!

    I was a bit late finishing off the truffles - but they're done now, and I'm on my way! :D

  • Robin

    I'm on my way to try some bacon- cheeseballs. Wish me luck! Time is not on my side at this point... but with bacon, all things are possible.

    Sorry! Last minute schedule change and I cannot make it. Sorry for the somewhat late RSVP change. Thanks a lot for setting this up and enjoy!

    possibly a little different bacon potato idea still figuring it out. may just stick to halved potatoes loaded with cheese and bacon

    Pst. You guys have the wrong Rachael/Rachel down as bringing the truffles. ;)

    I was really looking forward to this, but it looks like I won't be able to make it after all. Maybe next time!

    Bummed. Didn't think I would get in and now have another commitment!

    This sound baco-licous

    If anyone is stumped for bacon ideas, you could try making bacon wrapped dates. It sounds strange, but it's yummy.

    I've been eager to try making Bacon Chocolate Chip cookies...but didn't think that anyone would be brave enough to want to eat them. Now that I'm attending, I'll try making 2 versions of bacon chocolate chip cookies.

  • Tracey

    Arghhh... didn't think I would get in and booked myself for another event! Enjoy :-)

      Looks very interesting, but labor intensive and needs almost 1/2 pound of bacon per taco. Might try to make one taco on my own, just for the cooking challenge.

      If you make quesadillas, or some sort of sandwich it's easier because then you just make one big sheet pan of the weave :)

    I have the perfect recipe!

  • Son N.

    Sooooo. I made it off Craig and Jenny's waiting list and completely forgot to go. So I'm changing this RSVP to no because that should had been my 1 boardgame-night-a-month limit

    June 28, 2013

    • Son N.

      That was uncalled for. You know I don't speak English so I can't read. Anyway, let's call it punishment for not going to Craig and Jenny's boardgame night and prevented someone else to go.

      Don't listen to 'em, Son. I got what you meant. Some people...

    Really hoping I make it in so I can justify making a candied bacon ice cream. =P

    I think I want to try to make a bacon dessert. Wish me luck!

  • Robin

    I have yet to make up my mind what to make. All my thoughts thus far are clearly not good enough!

    Gracious. The bacon party is across the street from me.

    I'd love to try making some sorta chocolate bacon truffles... hrm. I've heard you can make a ganache by incorporating bacon grease with chocolate. Maybe add a little maple syrup as well? This is assuming I get off the wait list and can figure the recipe out. ;)

    June 6, 2013

    • Susannah

      Chocolate and bacon tastes great together with a sweet and salty blended flavor. I've eaten bacon chocolate ...but I'd be very interested in trying it as a truffle. http://chuaochocolati...­

    • Rachael

      Yus, I've heard the combo works! But I've never actually tried it! So I'm eager to give it a go! :D

      June 7, 2013

  • Cindy E.

    I will attempt to make Bacon Scallop Potatoes and my +1 will make bacon flavored popcorn I think :)

    June 6, 2013

  • TuxedoHank

    Bacon Soup & Bacon Bread, with a side of Bacon. Maybe not the side... I might have eaten it all while cooking. If that's the case, the bacon will be smeared all over my face.

    I love to cook with bacon. It might be tato skins loaded with cheese and bacon. My daughter will help prepare since she will be visiting me. 19 years old if curious.
