If you couldn't tell by now, we here at Neatorama love bacon. That being said, these crazy bacon treats are almost too extreme even for us...of course, notice that I said almost, because these are all going to end up on the menu for our next Neatorama office party.
Arguably the most outrageous pork creation of all time, the Swineapple consists of a hollowed out pineapple stuffed with boneless, country-style ribs, wrapped in bacon and slow cooked on a grill. Josh Bush of It's All About Da Bacon made the original, and has since reworked the recipe multiple times to incorporate sausage, jalapenos and more.
Pork E. Pigskin
If you've ever had a whole roasted pig, you know they can be beyond delicious, but there are a lot of problems with making these yourself -they are huge, don't fit in the oven, take forever and they have too many bones with too little bacon. If you like the idea of putting a whole roasted pig on the dinner table, but don't like the hassle, try this Pork E. Pigskin instead. Grillocracy can explain how to make what they call the "cutest meal you'll ever enjoy," but the basic composition involves a hot pork sausage body, spicy sausage legs, ham ears, a pork rind tail and skin completely made of bacon.
No-Carb Bacon Burger
How do you make a bacon burger low-carb and beyond delicious? Cut out the bun and replace it with bacon. Grillocracy's crazy bacon bun burger adds a whopping 3 pounds of bacon to the mix, giving "bacon burger" a whole new meaning.
Slater's 50/50 is best known for their burger patty that contains half beef and half bacon, but as one of their monthly rotating selections, they decided to up the bacon content for their all-bacon 'Merica burger. The monstrosity is then topped with bacon, bacon cheddar cheese, bacon island dressing, a fried egg and served up on a bacon pretzel bun. Your heart may never forgive you for trying this one, but your tongue will never forget the magical gift you gave it.
This July, they resurrected the burger, making the 'Merica 2.0 that was similar only without the fried egg or bacon island dressing and instead served with bacon jam and fried mac n' cheese.
No, we don't mean pizza with bacon on it -this is actually pizza made on bacon. After all, why deal with all that chewy, boring crust when you can instead enjoy crispy, delicious bacon? Pastured Kitchen shows how to use a bacon-weave to make your own impressive pizza.
Bacon-Wrapped Pineapple Mozzarella Rings
Again, some people love the flavor of pizza, but hate the crust underneath. If you're a sucker for Hawaiian pizza, then you might just love these calorie-laden treats from Slap Yo Daddy BBQ that layer mozzarella cheese on pineapple rings before wrapping the whole concoction in bacon.
There are a lot of people who only think sushi can contain raw fish, but since sushi technically just means rice, this breakfast sushi roll should absolutely qualify. This great Instructable by skyisblu shows you how to make sushi that uses bacon in place of nori and turns the rice into a creamy risotto.
What's better than graham crackers with roasted marshmallows and chocolate? How about fried bacon covered in melted marshmallows and coated in crushed graham crackers all served with a melted chocolate dip? Dude Foods explains the process -though it's pretty darn simple.
If you prefer savory over sweet, then you wouldn't want to miss Dude Food's Doritos-crusted bacon. If you're wondering how something like that is even possible, the bacon is fried, then drudged in flour, egg washed and finally sprinkled with Doritos before being deep fried for 30 seconds.
While Instructable user Canida notes that her bacon Jell-o wasn't a crowd pleaser at the SF Bacon Takedown, it is still magical in that it is Jell-O that looks and tastes like bacon.
Candied Bacon Appletini
Sometimes you just get tired of eating your bacon, but you don't need to give it up -just drink it instead with this recipe by Blender Booze. The bacon-infused vodka mixed in with amaretto, applejack, maple syrup and apple cider gives this drink a perfect blend of sweet and smoky goodness -just like the candied bacon served on the glass as a garnish.
Bourbon Caramel Apple
We love caramel apples, but if you love bacon, you know that grilling an apple wrapped in bacon before dipping it in bourbon-infused caramel would make it even better. Grillocracy's picture is making me hungry right now.
We love Oreos, but they are certainly lacking when it comes to bacon-y goodness. Fortunately, Oh Bite It is here to rectify the situation with these bacon-fried Oreos from Oh Bite It.
