First recipe

So after successfully creating posts, it's time for an actual recipe (right, Tony?).  And there's no better way to start a recipe blog than to post a bacon recipe.  

Without further ado, I present "How to make bacon flavored olive oil":

  • 1 bacon strip per cup of olive oil
  • 1 cups of olive oil


1. Assemble the ingredients and the items needed

2. Fry one strip of bacon per one cup of olive oil. Remove from the heat and place on paper towel to remove excess grease 

3. Chop up the cooled down, cooked bacon strip

4. Pour 1 cup of olive oil into a bowl

5. Spoon the chopped bacon bits into the olive oil in the bowl

6. Mix thoroughly. Let sit for about 2 hours. This will allow the bacon flavor to infuse the oil.

7. Strain the olive oil into a storage bottle. Label it clearly so that the cook and everyone else knows that this is the bacon infused olive oil. It is best used within a few days of making.  


  1. Ryan! You are going down in history as the first family member to EVER post a recipe on this glorious blog!

  2. Ummm...what do you do with the left-over bacon?

  3. Well, Tony, I'm glad you asked. If, by some chance, there's a tear in the space-time continuum and you find yourself with this so-called "left-over bacon", you have a number of options:

    1. Make more bacon oil (can you really have enough??)
    2. Make a bacon, egg & cheese sandwich (make sure you toast the bread in a skillet like you would a grilled cheese sandwich using your newly created bacon oil)
    3. Freeze for later bacon oil concoctions

    That's just for starters as we all know the possibilities are endless whenever bacon is involved.
