Recipe: Award-winning Sexy Bacon Roll

Bacon is so unhealthy....... but I simply can't resist, especially streaky bacon. I remember years ago when I was in Las Vegas having breakfast buffet at the hotel, I ended up just snacking cripsy bacon for b'fast!

I learnt that bacon is so popular in the US that restaurants are organizing bacon & beer tasting nights etc. Commentators explained this interest in bacon by reference to what they deemed 'American cultural characteristics'.

Sarah Hepola, in a 2008 article in, suggested a number of reasons, one of them being eating bacon in the modern, health-conscious world is an act of rebellion: "Loving bacon is like shoving a middle finger in the face of all that is healthy & holy while an unfiltered cigarette smolders between your lips". Hepola concluded by saying that "Bacon is American".

Interesting, isn't it? Today, I'd like to share with you my Award-winning bacon recipe with prawns that's smacking good :) Top Buzz in a US Food Directory & Winner of Wacky Recipe Contest!

  1. What a really interesting idea. Do you par boil the beans and carotts? leave them to be crunchy? good post. thanks. s

  2. Nope, I don't pre-cook the veg. It came out nice & crunchy :)

  3. Hi Shirley, This dish looks great. I think most people in the US just love great tasting food and even though it's not real healthy bacon tastes really good. I've recently found a bacon by Hormel that is naturally cured without nitrates and nitrites and it's pretty good. Found you on womens blogger. Congrats on the best blog award. Tracy
