    I love bacon in so many ways but the following are three of my favourites:

    Chicken breast fillet, topped with sun dried tomato slice and basil leaves, wrapped in bacon and casseroled for half an hour at 375F/190C.

    Similarly, firm fleshed white fish wrapped in bacon and casseroled at same temperature for around twenty minutes.

    Bacon as part of a big fry up, with sausages, egg, black (blood) pudding, tomatoes, mushrooms and onions.

    I am now off to raid the fridge...

      Gordon, I'm not familiar with blood pudding.  i've heard many people talk about it, but what is it and how is it prepared?  Thanks, Phil

        Hi, Phil

        Black pudding/blood pudding is made with principally oatmeal, spices such as nutmeg and pigs' blood. I know it sounds disgusting but it is in fact delicious. It is very popular here in Scotland and in the North of England, where it is known as black pudding.

        In the USA, it is more commonly known as blood pudding but the essential basics are the same.

        When it is prepared, it is usually stuffed in to a casing (like a big sausage) and sliced. The slices are then fried or grilled.

          Gordon, thanks for all that.  I have heard about the dish as my dad's buddy from college has some friends in Scotland, and it's one of his favorite dishes.  I can't say I've tried blood pudding and not sure whether people in the U.S. eat that dish or not.  I've never heard of any friends nor run into anyone that makes the dish, other than those in Scotland I mentioned.  Do you bbq it like a sausage?  Thanks again for enlightening me on this dish.  Best, Phil

            Gordon Hamiltonposted 5 years ago in reply to this

            You're welcome, Phil.

            I suppose you could bbq it but I wouldn't recommend it. It is usually sliced prior to cooking and would probably disintegrate to some extent. It is usually shallow fried or grilled under an overhead grill indoors.

            Through friends, I know that blood pudding (as it is known in the USA) is available in both New York State and North Carolina. Assume it will be available elsewhere. May be worth a few different Google searches.

            I searched here to see if I could find a supplier that delivers to the USA but they all have a warning saying that they are not allowed to deliver outwith Great Britain due to the laws governing international meat distribution.

            If you can't find a supplier, find a local butcher who'll make it for you, e-mail me and I'll send you a recipe for him. It might very well catch on and you can build a Hub promoting it! smile

      Blood pudding/black pudding is something where the concept alone turns many people off. If you get some properly made blood/black pudding, it is absolutely delicious! I promise!! smile

    For me it has to be as part of a Full English

    http://hubpages.com/hub/The-Joy-of-a-Fu … -Breakfast but failing that there is another British Standard of the Bacon Buttie.

    Which is two slices of White Bread, (Might as well be non health white if you are frying everything else) spread with either Tomato Ketchup or HP Brown Sauce, and at least three rashers of Back Bacon, not that wimpy spreaky crap.  For extra enjoyment add a fried egg and or sliced mushrooms.

    Another tasty variation, toast one side of the bread under a grill, flip it over and place slices of a good melting cheese like cheddar, add a couple of splashes of Worcestershire sauce to the top of the cheese and grill that until it bubbles, remove to a plate add the bacon to complete the sandwich.

    I only have one for you

    Candied bacon! Natures most perfect food, protein, Fat, Sodium, Sugar, cholesterol, Nitrates and Nitrites

    Grease a baking pan
    Lay the bacon out side by side, not overlapping
    Sprinkle with brown sugar, coat all of the bacon fairly heavily
    Bake at 350 degrees until the sugar caramelizes and the bacon is cooked.
    This will stick to the pan so it has to be removed while still hot.

    This makes a wonderful hors d'oeuvre if you add a little cayenne to the sugar you get sweet, spicy and salty bacon, Yum
