Wake n' Bacon

Post by felinamojokitty »

more bacon ingenuity...would you want one?


http://www.mathlete.com/portfolio/wakeNbacon.php


WHAT: An alarm clock that wakes you up with the smell and sizzle of cooking bacon.

WHY: No one likes to wake up, especially by an alarm. This clock gently wakes you up with the mouthwatering aroma of bacon, just like waking up on a Sunday morning to the smell of Mom cooking breakfast. Unless you're Jewish.

HOW: A frozen strip of bacon is placed in Wake n' Bacon the night before. Because there is a 10 minute cooking time, the clock is set to go off 10 minutes before the desired waking time. Once the alarm goes off, the clock it sends a signal to a small speaker to generate the alarm sound. We hacked the clock so that the signal is re-routed by a microchip that in responds by sending a signal to a relay that throws the switch to power two halogen lamps that slow-cook the bacon in about 10 minutes.

I think badfellow had the best idea i've ever heard for bacon. Cook it crisp and freeze it. Then use it as a swizzle stick for your morning bloody mary. Not sure if it was his idea, it was an old post, but genius all the same.

That is genius.
I always want more bacon. Either the way you Americans serve it (and of course its popular here, and amazing), or back bacon with or without crushed chick peas.
Wine comes in at the mouth,
And love comes in at the eye;
That's all we shall know for truth
Before we grow old and die.
I lift the glass to my mouth,
I look at you, and I sigh.

I'd set my alarm for 5 AM, 6 AM, 7 Am, and 8 AM if I had that.

I was gonna say I'm a bit leery of bacon that has been sitting out for 7 hours, but then I remember eating at the Frisch's breakfast bar...

The Black Forest bacon from Whole Foods is fucking awesome. It's so damn good, I'll go to Whole Foods to get it. Actually, the whole meat department there is pretty kick-ass. Next week, more Black Forest bacon, and maybe some ground bison for chili.

You should give Niman Ranch bacon a try.
