I was at the Internet Marketers Spring Break Party in Deerfield Beach this past Friday night, when I was introduced to the Bacon Explosion for the first time (shame on me for considering myself a foodie, being out of the loop on this one).

Bacon Explosion

What is the Bacon Explosion, you may ask? For those as out of the know as I am, the Bacon Explosion is “about $20 worth of bacon and Italian sausage from a local meat market. As it lay on the counter, he thought of weaving strips of raw bacon into a mat. The two spackled the bacon mat with a layer of sausage, covered that with a crunchy layer of cooked bacon, and rolled it up tight” – quoted from the New York Times.

Aaron Chronister, a co-inventor of this culinary coronary-unfriendly creation, was whipping up one of these mega meatloafs at a IMSpringBreak dinner, weaving his bacon and sausage masterpiece.

This smoking mound of meat has been quite the culinary buzz, exploding throughout the internet, making its way onto NYTimes, CNN, Fox, Good Morning America and, just to name a few…

So gear up, pop your lipitor, and claim your carnivorous title with the infamous Bacon Explosion!


Simple, yet always delish recipe…

Mix in a 6 inch deep, small baking dish:

– 1/4 cup of light soy sauce
– 5 chopped garlic cloves
– 5 chopped thin slices of ginger
– Chili powder to taste
– 2 teaspoons of honey

After well mixed, place 6 thinly sliced pieces of pork in the dish, mix well, and let sit for as long as possible, up to a day. This dish works just as well if you are as impatient as I am and don’t have time to marinade… another reason I love it…

Place baking dish with pork in the oven at 400 degrees until cooked thoroughly.

I love serving this dish with basmati rice and peas…

Again, I don’t measure… ever. Continually taste the sauce until it is salty, sweet, and spicy enough for your taste! This dish is basic to the point of being idiot-proof.

Enjoy =)
