B.A.T.


V
egetarian isnt working so bring on the bacon. We have been eating seaweed and rice for a few days now and perhaps what my body needs is a little smoky fat and cholesterol - the kind that only bacon can deliver. How do you not eat a whole pound of bacon? The answer is simple - only cook a half pound!



I have been in quite a mood lately and I cant snap out of it - maybe its the bronchial cough I have had almost this whole year - off and on - or maybe I just need a huge-o-rama change. I have some irons in the fire and they are starting to glow red hot I only hope they get hot enough to brand. In the in between how about a B.A.T?



A B.A.T. is a Bacon, Arugula and Tomato sandwich on Natures Pride 12 grain bread, and to kick it up even more I used olive oil mayo.




Bacon isnt enough how about a crispy fried egg with some polenta? 'Clog those arteries' is my new mantra!

This an entry for Denny's and Foodbuzz Baconalia.

Jenn said...

Haha... Bring on the bacon!! I actually had myself some bacon last night. I think I've had my fix for now. (Maybe not)

Ciao Chow Linda said...

Seaweed and rice? NO NO NO!
I'll have a large B.A.T. to go please.

KennyT said...

That's the mantra I always chant......... *^^*

TavoLini said...

Oh man, that last egg....I want to dip toast in it so badly!!

Its the seasons. Always stirs up the need for change.

the ungourmet said...

What a great mantra! I'll definitely take one of those B.A.T.s!

Cinnamon-Girl Reeni♥ said...

I see your eating well-balanced meals!! Vegetarian one day, seaweed the next, and now this. All of it looks so freakin' good. It's hard to avoid gluttony when your such a fantastic cook!

lk- healthy delicious said...

mmmm.... bacon....
I was hoping the a was for avocado though.

Dawn said...

oh my gosh, Dog! damn! now that's a B.A.T. Arugula is perfect here.

justin: its the kind of thing where one feels like and appetizer

jenn: I am like all those other bacon lovers out there - I never have enough

linda: funny - and no problem on the 'to-go'

kenny: It didnt feel unique thats for sure..

tavolini: sometimes I like to fry them up with crispy edges..

the un: it may not be the wisest mantra though!

reeni: aww thats so nice

lk: normally it would be avocado and drats to you for making me crave avocado now!

A Year on the Grill said...

yow... Wicked great looking. I thought it was gonna be avocado. I like the arugula better

Angie's Recipes said...

Seaweed and rice? You meant Sushi? for a few days? That's brave.

Whats up with that mood, donkey? ;)

Donna-FFW said...

And before anybody freaking goes there, donkey is a term of endearment FOR him. From me.

doggybloggy said...

dawn: the spicy crunch is just the answer

a year: more avocado teasing...

angie: we get hooked on things

donna: ride the donkey ride the pony - its all good!

Marjie said...

I'm with you! Clog those arteries! You know my dearly beloved would look at me like I had two heads and then say, "OK, seriously, what's for dinner?" if I put out a meatless meal. I suffer bronchial coughs, too. Have you tried the Advair inhaler? I got a doctor to prescribe it for me, and it makes a world of difference. Hope something works for you, because I feel your pain there.

~Dana said...

Looks better than my deli!

buffalodick said...

I think you're doing fine- food looks good! Hope you survive the attack of the gays... update your shots...

deb said...

Melody said...

Good for you!
You are listening to your body and what IT needs. :) My body loves to eat bacon every once in a while too. That sandwich looks full of flavor!

doggybloggy said...

dana: now thats a mighty fine compliment

buff: update my shots? what do you mean?

deb: 7 weeks - damn - this is the second time I have had it no wait third time - I had it april - july - and now again in sept/oct

melody: I dont think my body really knows when it starts to say - go ahead whats a few more beers

Teresa Cordero Cordell said...

DB, that is the most delicious looking sandwich I've seen in a long time. I love BLT's, of course in your case, BAT's. Gotta love that bacon (in moderation of course!).

snugs said...

did you get the medicine that I told you to get??? Did you shave??

The Duo Dishes said...

ha! Bring on the bacon. It's always welcome. Whether 1/2 a pound or a full pound.

Phyllis said...

Like KennyT, 'clog my arteries' has always been my mantra :) Loving the B.A.T!
p.s. my cholesterol actually went DOWN after months of bad eating and poutine crawls, apparently my body approves of binge-eating LOL! Hope your mood improves after all that bacon love!

Danielle said...

Bring on the bacon!!

Michelle Ann said...

Yum...who doesn't love bacon? That is a completely rhetorical question.

5 Star Foodie said...

I was never particularly font of lettuce but I do love arugula so I love the BAT idea!

Cookin' Canuck said...

Yes, you're right. The only way I can eat less bacon is by cooking less of it. And with a fried egg - heaven!

buffalodick said...

Nothing to do with photography..

Jamie said...

Omigawd BLTs are a favorite and with arugula or rocket or whatever you call it (I call it rucola) it is even more amazing. Bring it on!

The Blonde Duck said...

Bacon makes everything better.

Table Talk said...

I am a B.A.T. and G. girl myself---"G" for guacamole in place of the mayo. One of my favs.

pinknest said...

Monstrous! Wonderful! I just posted about trying a "bacon bar" at brunch.

girlichef said...

Good tip ;) But yeah...complete and total vegetarianism is a wonder to me. How do people live without bacon? Hmmm. BLT's are one of my all-time faves...I bet the bite of the arugula is nice. But I must admit...A regular old BLT with a little mayo and sliced avocado is what gets my motor runnin'! That polenta and fried egg....mmm mmm good.

Nutmeg Nanny said...

Oh yeah! This is my kind of a sandwich:) Make it peppered bacon and I'm all over it!

nora@ffr said...

The Diva on a Diet said...

Looks like B.A.T. also stands for Big and Tasty! Yum!

teresa said...

oh yummy! bacon is good all the time!

Just telling it like it is said...

I think I would rather have clogged arteries than eat seaweed and rice! Bacon much better!

Creative Mish said...

Everything is going to kill us. Might as well enjoy it! This looks fabulous!

♥peachkins♥ said...

hmmnn.. I'm not really fond of arugulas..so it would be a BT for me..

Dhanggit said...

OMG i want a bite of this!!

Stacey Snacks said...

This would have to be my all time favorite sandwich, 2nd to egg salad w/ bacon and tomato!

Cucinista said...

Holy sandwich, B.A.T.man!

Cynthia said...

You are a dangerous man, I need to keep away from you :)

T.W. Barritt at Culinary Types said...

This ought to make you feel better. I'm happier just looking at the photos ...
