That was hilarious! Bacon lovers unite! I'm going to have to head over to the entertainment thread and change my favorite comedian now, after I make a blt

Does he call it his "bacon bit"?

The prawn version does sound much more appetizing! Bacon IS the fairy dust of the food world as Jim says, but it does have its limits IMO.

To those who like chicken livers and of course, bacon, here is a recipe for a traditional Hawaiian Rumaki
