How’s that for a title? Denise over at the Wasabi Prime blog has a better moniker for her meaty creation — Hautedogs!
As Denise notes on her blog, “..it’s tough to make a whole sausage wrapped with a bacon-like product look anything less than questionably medical. But believe me, inspiration swirled around the genesis of this creation, so do not let your eyes misjudge the delicious potential of this meal!” Well, we’re not here to judge — we just want to taste amazing bacon foods and this looks like a winner.
The meal consists of chicken sausage, stuffed with provolone and sage leaves which are then wrapped in proscuitto and served in a baguette. Now, some of the purists out there will criticize the use of Italian bacon and may even go so far as to claim it is not really bacon at all. We here at Bacon Today love all the cousins of bacon and celebrate their tastiness whenever possible. Dismounting my soapbox, we continue with Denise’s explanation of her side dish selection:
“The chopped salad was just a paltry attempt at getting a serving of greens to balance out this fancypants indulgence.”
Facypants indeed. Tastiness gauranteed. In fact, Denise has created some other bacon-infused meals that you’ll surely want to check out.
