November 2nd, 2016 | Green Bay, WI
For those with an insatiable hunger for more bacon, Nostalgia would like to welcome the Bacon Express™ into your kitchen. As a quick, energy-efficient way to crisp up to six slices of regular or thick-cut bacon at a time, it’s enough to make any bacon connoisseur salivate. To further fuel the appetite, the Bacon Express™ has a unique vertical cooking setup that allows fat and grease to drain away, so devouring all that bacon can be relatively guilt-free. Grease simply drains into the slide-out drip tray. Plus, the operation is unfussy. Cool-touch handles keep fingers safe, and an illuminated crispiness-selector dial allows you to choose how well-done to cook your bacon. When the bacon cooking fun is over, the non-stick cooking plate and insulated door liners remove for easy cleanup.
In recent years, bacon has evolved to be more than a delicious breakfast side and the ‘B’ in BLTs. Bacon has reached an almost cult-like status among its many fanatics, and has spurred some to seek out other great uses for this tasty cured meat. Some of them are mouthwateringly good, others are just plain weird, and some you might just need to try for yourself. So get your bacon cooking and check out the Top Four Ways to Use Nostalgia’s New Bacon Express™.
- Build the world’s largest BLT.
The record for the world’s largest BLT is currently held by the St. Louis eatery Iron Barley, and the monstrous feat included 600 pounds of bacon, 440 pounds of bread, 550 pounds of tomatoes, 220 heads of iceberg lettuce, 110 pounds of butter, and 60 gallons of mayonnaise. It might take a village to overtake this record, but even if you don’t succeed in setting the record, at least you’ll have a ready-made lunch for afterwards.
- Bacon vodka.
Infuse vodka with bacon using the Nostalgia™ Electric Infuser Accelerator and keep on hand to mix up a bacon-flavored Bloody Mary. Hello Sunday morning brunch!
- Flavor your coffee.
If your morning routine doesn’t include enough bacon, which it probably doesn’t, this is a great way to sneak a bit more bacon into your day.
- Experiment by adding bacon to classic recipes, like brownies or pancakes.
Just cook up a few strips of bacon and crumble the salty bits into a standard brownie recipe, or add to pancakes and top with syrup. Then sit back and enjoy the wonderful sweet and salty flavor pairings. Yum!
Bonus Pro Tip: Save your bacon grease! It can be used to pop popcorn, fry or bake veggies, or to grease a pan or skillet.
