Frankly I’m Tempted


Erica Barnett wrote a brief but meaty post the other day about the heart-stopping joy of bacon-wrapped, cheese-filled, battered and fried hot dogs. (Recipe, via Stuff Magazine, below the jump.)

I decided to call her bluff and see if she’d really eat such a bizarre concoction of unnatural ingredients. With 17 years of culinary experience under my belt and a fridge full of bacon, I dove headfirst into the dark world of lad-mag cookery.

    There used to be a place in Rochester, NY called Zab’s Backyard Hots that did exactly the same thing. They called it a “Kansas City”. Yum.

    Interesting. A friend and I once spent an entire vacation wondering if one could deep fry bacon. We also spent that week annoying our respective wives.

    I always believed that you needed to cook the bacon prior to breading and deep frying it. I may have been right.

    Everytime I see that picture I think of “suicide”. Why would anyone want to eat all that poison when we know how in time it will kill you????

    The only way to make it better would be to sprinkle with powdered sugar and pour a nice raspberry jam over the top.
