Oh shoot I didnt even get the pun.

Dangnabit.

Here's your link...the trick is to mince it up finely and mix it with flour and grease, which is the chemical transference process that makes it into a vegetable.

I'm a little bit concerned. I just got back from the big box warehouse store where I bought a package of Aidells Pineapple and Bacon sausage.

Aidells doesnt even list the product on their web site, and google only brings up some nutritional site that lists the nutritional value of the product. No other obvious references.

Maybe some sort of space-time continuum thing caused this to happen?

Further, just yesterday I became aware of a food product called a "scotch egg" at an english pub type place that other than the scotch egg had incredibly bad food.

The scotch egg is a hard boiled egg that has been rolled in cooked ground sausage. It is then breaded and then deep fried.

Bon appetit!


I am primarily concerned about the Aidells mixup because the store also sold a 5 lb bag of frozen "jambalaya seafood mix" which consisted primarily of octopus and squid, with some fake Krab and other sundry seafood items. I'm not sure I've seen a jambalaya made with octopus and squid. I've definitely never seen one made with Krab.

I love Scotch eggs! I've made them plenty of times, but it is really difficult to keep the sausage on the egg. They are great for soaking up lots of beer when we have parties. We do not bring anything into our house called "Krab".

I'm awful proud of you with regards to that Krab thing. Although once a year or so when I'm on a diet I might buy a couple of pound of it and snack on it with melted butter

The Aidells pineapple/bacon sausage is okay, but frankly I prefer the Evergood pineapple sausage (also in a peculiar manner, not many google hits).

These have been the frickin bomb in the smoker over the last 3-4 outings. I've dropped 10-12 of them on the top shelf for 3-5 hours and everyone has been mighty impressed. Nice and sweet, good caramelization, and really great flavor.

Maybe its the slow cookin' (I fired the Aidells up on the grill on low) but after tinkering with many sausages (shaddup), for a nice sweet one I'd go with the evergood pineapples over any similar chicken/apple varieties or other fruit related sausages (make your own joke). Highly recommended. And inexpensive especially when bought at costco.

Dinner tonight is a pair of salsas prepared from our farm share...red onions, a mix of 8 different chili peppers, 5 different kinds of tomatoes, some non-farm limes that were ridiculously juicy, salt, pepper, italian seasoning, some fresh cilantro and a couple of other goodies that I'd reveal but then I'd have to kill all y'all. One includes all the hot stuff and one doesnt. We have a situation where the 3 year old eats the hot salsa and declares "This is too spicy for me!" and then eats more of it. So he gets a low-heat versions.

Followed by the pineapple sausages, some ravioli with spinach and ricotta treated with a nice herb butter with sage and garlic, and fresh raspberries for dessert.

Invented at the concession stand of the St Louis Gateway Grizzlies in 2006!

Its slightly approached by the Carls Jr. "Breakfast Burger", which is a bacon cheeseburger with a fried egg on top and a layer of hash browns on the bottom.

How timely. I'm enjoying some niman ranch dry cured applewood smoked as we speak!

Costco has 3 12oz packages for $9.xx. Pretty good considering one package at the supermarket costs almost that much.

Odd bacon...shrinks a lot, chewy, fat part remains very pure white no matter how long you cook it. It almost looks like a fake dog bacon when cooked, although I mean that more from the contrast of reddish/brown meat and pure white fat...not that it looks bad...just that I could pick it out in a bacon lineup pretty easily.

Oh, and very very delish!

BLT's sometime this week. We have some tasty apple wood bacon . That is a good price. I usually broil the bacon.

Baked at 350-400 (whatever I feel like, whichever oven buttons look happiest at the moment) for about 15 minutes, no turning. Line the cookie pan with foil and after the fat cools you can just roll it up and throw it away. No pans to clean.

Perfect every time. I do a whole package/pound at a pop and ziploc it.

I should have snapped a picture of me, my dad and Gabe all gnawing on a strip while watching football yesterday. Three generations of bacon eating.

We have a family recipe for "Scotch egg" using sauteed ground pork (seasoned to taste), wrapped around the hard-boiled egg, and rolled in bread crumbs, then deep-fried. The ground pork sticks to the egg only if you use egg white, or a beaten egg as mortar sparingly. It is labor intensive, but yummy.
