Can you believe Gold Bacon?
It’s hardly a secret that we have a bit of a taste for bacon — call it an obsession if you want. So, we were pretty excited when we found out that the mad culinary scientists at the Baconery had combined the awesomeness of bacon, the deliciousness of chocolate, and the luxury of gold to make 23k Gold Chocolate Bacon ($40). It’s made with Nueske’s Cherrywood Bacon, Guittard Semi-Sweet Dark Chocolate, and 23k edible gold flakes. Put it on a sandwich, eat it with your eggs, we don’t care. Just don’t let it go to waste.
If this is too rich for your taste, then how about a Beacon Press?
We’ve all had it happen: your bacon curls as it fries, leaving you with scorched valleys and none-too-crispy peaks. If you want to alleviate this but keep that fried bacon taste, you need a Bacon Press ($12-$14). These two options from Nopro are made from sturdy, heavy cast iron, feature large press surfaces for handling multiple slices at once, sport wooden handles that won’t get hot, and also work great for sandwiches, burgers, or anything else you want to cook evenly and don’t mind getting a little squished.
