    4Susan's Note:

    Bacon - it's the icecream of the meat world, high in Vitamin-G (grease) and bound to make the food police crazy! This side of fat douple-dipped in fat then fried in fat & served with a side of fat (cream gravy) recipe comes from Sodolak's Original Country Inn restaurant in Snook, Texas. Cream gravy is my own recipe. I do not admit to ever making fried bacon so prep time is a guesstimate ;)

      there is nothing more beautiful than bacon (fat) wrapped in carbohydrates and cooked in fat in the world of food. Some will say "that will clog your arteries". I say that this elegant dish is not only an inspiration to mankind but the epitome and symbol of manliness and awesomeness. Eat it.<br/><br/>Seriously though, this is the best (and best tasting) idea that ever saw light. Bravo, says I, for being awesome.

      Oh this is good stuff. Made it this weekend for a potluck and everyone loved it. I salted and peppered the flour, some garlic powder might have been a nice addition. The Chicken Fried Bacon is good enough on it's own but dipping it in the cream gravy made even better.

      Made this recipe after seeing that it won the Texas State Fair in October 2008. I have now, by request, made it two more times. A little goes a long way but it is so decadent that everyone wants more.... Takes about an hour for two pounds cut in half, five pieces at a time. One of the new favorite foods of the Buben Verin along with bacon wrapped chicken livers - yum.
