Chicken-fried bacon, a.k.a. 'bacon porn'

January 7, 2009 | 12:49 pm

Well, my heart skipped a beat when I got an e-mail from Jenn with a link to this video:

Imagine... chicken-fried bacon! Apparently, it's a specialty at Sodolak's Original Country Inn in Snook, Texas, as gloriously captured on video by Texas Country Reporter Bob Phillips.

Ian also sent an e-mail about a recipe for a similar dish from Maxim -- yes, Maxim magazine:

"We recently tried a recipe reported in Maxim called “Bacon Porn”. It was thick bacon dredged in chicken fried steak batter and deep fried. A simply amazing experience."

'Nuff said.  Gotta try it.  I'll report back. 

Oh, and in the meantime, this entry gets No. 17 on my list of "1,001 things to do with bacon."
