Bacon product that didn't make it.

Back in the 1970's the company that brigs ue Reddi-Whip thought it would be a good idea to make bacon in a toaster.

Pop the foil wrapped bacon into the toaster for a quick breakfast treat.

Just one small problem - the pouch tended to leak, causing a fire hazard  (as well as a big mess).

Sadly, the idea was abandoned.

Bacon and History

The Great Fire of London started with bacon in the oven
"On the 1st of September 1666, a Saturday night or early Sunday morning, Thomas Farriner, a King's baker, had probably spent quite a lot of the previous day, which was the day of the markets and of receipts, in the pub. He came home and would swear blind, a few days later, that he had swept the oven to make sure that there were no embers there. He also, just for preparation, put two flitches of bacon up into his oven, and then left providence with his slippers and went up to bed. In the next few hours, the basement of his house began to fill with smoke. He was then forced to crawl across the roofs of his house into his neighbour's house, and so started one of the greatest turning points in London's history - the Great Fire of London..."

From an online lecture offered by Gresham College.

My Sleek and Shining Bacon

My Sleek and Shining Bacon

How I miss it, how I pine
Smell so luscious, taste divine
my sleek and shining bacon!

My wife, you see, with no holds barred
Has just declared a war on lard.
We're not to buy, or eat or shit
A single piddling piece of it.

"How can we live?" I cry "Alack!"
"without the meat from piggies back?"
But she is firm in her blockade,
There will no cassoulet be made
Nor quiche Lorraine, nor ham and eggs
Not even porc pâté
How I miss it, how I pine
Smell so luscious, taste divine
my sleek and shining bacon!

Bacon Hot Sauce

From their 'About' page:
"We are a group of three friends who were hanging out on a Sunday morning craving eggs and potatoes with bacon and hot sauce. One person stated that bacon makes everything better, while another contended that hot sauce makes everything better. And the third thought, “you’re both right, why not bacon-flavored hot sauce?"
I havn't tried it, But it sure looks good!
