Bakin’ with The Bacon King

Standard

Greetings Loyal Subjects of Baconia……’tis I – your King – in the kitchen for another little bacon treat!!

This is one EASY PEASY recipe and I hope you’ll try it.    I say in the instructions that it makes enough for company but the truth is, if you’re hungry and watching a movie or something on the tube, you can easily gobble these down without a second thought with your significant other (yes Mom – this means you and DAD!).

Since it’s football season, it could be a nice addition to your array of appetizers for your company that’s yelling and screaming right along with you (while the household pets hide in another room of course).    My Mom is the football fan in my house – she’s QUIETER now than she used to be (Angel Sammy told me she used to get QUITE ANIMATED watching football).    Nowadays she just sits in her recliner and mutters the occasional “NO NO” word if her Washington Redskins are in trouble (like last week right Mom??).    Anyway, this appetizer is worth giving a try – because it has BACON IN IT OF COURSE!

Ready?

BACON APPETIZER CRESCENTS

INGREDIENTS:
  • ounces Cream Cheese (softened)
  • slices Bacon (cooked, crumbled)
  • 1/3 cup Grated Parmesan Cheese
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped onions
  • tablespoons fresh parsley (chopped)
  • tablespoon milk
  • cans refrigerated crescent dinner rolls (8 oz. each)
DIRECTIONS:
  1. Heat oven to 375°F.
  2. Mix all ingredients except crescent dough.
  3. Separate each can of dough into 8 triangles; cut each triangle lengthwise in half. Spread each dough triangle with 1 generous tsp. cream cheese mixture; roll up, starting at short side of triangle. Place, point-sides down, on baking sheet.
  4. Bake 12 to 15 min. or until golden brown. Serve warm.

 

OK now you must admit, this sounds yummy – know why?   Because they ARE yummy.   And really easy.    And this recipe makes enough for company.    Super yum for watching TV – movie night?   Sports program?    Whatever!!!

Yep – we agree!!!!  

Yep – I’m heading down this road…..won’t be long before I’m telling my Mom this!!!Signing off from Castle Baconia – Have a great Saturday !

I Can Smell Bacon!   Can You?

Oh yes!   Nothing smells better………NOTHING!   Let’s eat!   You don’t want to DEFY the Kingly Decree do you?????

Make sure and show this to your humans – they need to realize that it’s IMPAWTANT the King’s wishes be followed!

Here are some suggestions you can give them of what to serve YOU today:

THE POSSIBILITIES ARE ENDLESS!!!!!

And don’t we deserve a little bacon in our lives after entertaining them all week?   Loving them all week?   Letting them sleep with us, pet us, brush us, feed us, ALL WEEK?

Indeed………..bring on the bacon I say.

Show them this DEPRESSING and SAD graphic!    We must do better than AVERAGE!

Angel Sammy – the former King of Baconia – and I agree on this!

If all else fails – remember we have the power of “THE LOOK” on our side!   Don’t hesitate to resort to it if you need to!

As I leave you this Saturday, may I give you this FINAL THOUGHT:

Happy Baconday from your King!

Shopping Around The World!

I JUST LOVE TO SHOP!!!!!

I JUST LOVE TO SHOP!!!!!

Howdy shoppers (and eaters!).   Another fun blog hop from my Cousin Bacon of PIG LOVE………..where Bacon gets us all to share a recipe and the prices we paid for the ingredients and we can laugh or cry at what WE pay compared to everyone ELSE in the world!   Fun yes?

This month’s challenge was to provide details for an appetizer, meal, or dessert with at least FIVE ingredients………..Mom has this really yummy thing she does with APPLES this time of the year when apples are plentiful so that’s what I’ll tell you about today!

Caramel Apple Dip

Mom – It’s Your Baconator Here!

That’s it – Saturday morning runs around and as soon as Mom hits the floor from upstairs she heads to the kitchen to make coffee.  Now I don’t mind snoopervising that part but if she doesn’t hurry and get it done and move on to getting out the frying pan, I’ll let her know…………….I’ll start the magical chant “MAMAMAMAMAMAMAMAMA” until she opens the refrigerator.   THEN it’s ON baby – she puts that bacon in the frying pan and pretty soon the aroma fills the downstairs and wafts UPSTAIRS and wakes Dad up and he’s there with me WAITING………WAITING FOR THE BACON.

BACONPOSTER6

That’s my Saturday.  Yep – it’s pretty much like that.   Mom was sent some interesting info by a friend last week about bacon………….you may have read it too.

  • Bacon

 

Bacon in a healthy diet? You bet, Dr. Ramsey says. “As a flavoring, it can be used to get people to eat plants,” he adds. Another plus: Around 30 percent of the fat from bacon gets left in the pan.

Happiness perks: Bacon has oleic acid, a nutrient linked to lower depression in women. And a bacon-and-egg-breakfast gives you a double whammy of choline, which can help reduce anxiety. Bonus points if you use bacon from pasture-fed pigs — it has depression-fighting vitamin D.

Go for: Smoke-cured meat to cut down on salts, nitrates and other preservatives. 

BACONHAPPY

OK I’m assuming when this doctor says “it can be used to get people to eat plants” he means plants like green beans, spinach, and other stuff that humans eat that when you add bacon, are all of a sudden MUCH YUMMIER than without it????   Who knows.  Point is, the “HAPPINESS PERKS” I’m all for.   So is Mom and so am I.   At my age I can use all the PERKS I can get.   Wonder if Mom cooked a bunch of catnip and added bacon if I’d REALLLY get happy????   Hmm……FOOD for thought!!

Bacon DOES make me happy…………….Now I know why!!!

GO FOR IT!!!!!!

GO FOR IT!!!!!!

 

Make someone happy……

fry up some bacon! 

Happy Saturday

My Saturday Motto!

My Saturday Motto!

Oh it’s glorious Caturday and Mom’s working on breakfast and the house smells so lovely and bacon-ey and I’m so READY for my breakfast.   I will happily take my pill this morning because I know I’ll ALSO get some bacon.  I bet everybody is tired of hearing me go on and on and on about bacon but at my age, I figure I’ve earned the right to talk about WHATEVER I want to talk about – ESPECIALLY delicious stuff like bacon.   If you like it like I do, I hope you’re a member of my Bacon Appreciation Club????

BACONBADGE

Mom hasn’t decided what to make with bacon today…..might be waffles, might be pancakes, might be eggs – or maybe corned beef hash and fried potatoes – or sometimes it’s just a big pile of bacon on toast!   I don’t care WHAT they eat with their bacon – all I want is the crispy delightful “B” with NOTHING!

Seems I’m talking a lot about food lately – yesterday it was lobster, then I told you that I take my medication with raspberry yogurt……you must think my life revolves around food.  Well it doesn’t really – it revolves around my Mom because I am a self-professed, dyed in the wool, card-carrying “Mommy’s Boy” and proud of it!

Sam Sleeping on Mom's Lap

There’s no place like Mom’s lap….

Hope you have a grand Saturday – whether bacon is on the menu or not – go give your human a hug.  They wait on us every day, usually give us what we ask for (!), and take such good care of us.   I should think a hug is well in order!

Awww.......

Awww…….

Baconized Hugs,

Sammy
