Obviously, I had a moral objection to such a party…ahhhhhhhhh, just kidding.
As I’m getting older and realizing my heart just ain’t what she used to be and I haven’t really been coming up with horrible, beyond Thunderdome-style over the top noms…but I have friends who have kept the faith. Six pounds of Bacon were purchased for Fat Tuesday, Bacon was wrapped around many things. I guess this is sort of a live blog type thing since Bacon-wrapped corn dogs are cooking in the oven and various other food items are being prepared as I type this. (I brought the whiskey, beer and Zebra Cakes, for the record.)
So, without further adieu…
I present to you with string cheese-filled cheddar brauts wrapped in Bacon
This is a closer shot of shit just getting waaaaaay too out of control.
Joseph Savage, Bacon attack artist…he created the cheese-filled, Bacon-wraped cheddar braut.
Other, non-Bacon items we had.
My perfectly stacked Zebra Cakes.
If you’re going to eat this much Bacon, you need something to thin your blood…we chose Canadian whiskey.
Molly’s strawberry & Nutella-filled croisants.
This is Blake putting Bacon on corn dogs…yeah, you read that correctly.
Blake added some butter to the caramelized Bacon.

Dorito crums for the Bacon-wrapped cheeseball. Boom.
Savage’s Bacon-wrapped cheese balls
Savage double Bacon-wrapped cheese balls
Blake enjoys her Bacon-wrapped corn dogs…perhaps too much.
At one point Savage asked a pertinent question, “Blake, how many strips of Bacon does it take to wrap a cheeseball?” Fuckin a, Savage, fuckin a.
Also, in weird hipster news, La Puttaneria resident Kat had her first PBR tonight. Woo!
This is your brain (and your arteries) on Hogs.
UPDATE: So many Bacon-wrapped items were cooked in the oven that a small grease fire started while we were cooking the double-sized cheese balls, our last item of the night. Everything turned out okay, though.
