Bacon · Burgers · When Bill Cooks

Hmmm, you might say.  Too large to be scallops, but they definitely appear to be wrapped in bacon….

They are, in fact, the brain child of my husband.  They are – or will soon be – Thai-flavor veggie burgers wrapped (yes) in bacon (again, yes).  Grilled first, then finished in a hot oven (to finish off the bacon)…we served them on english muffins with (I’m sorry, but it works) American cheese and a generous pour of Thai red curry paste and coconut milk (a 1:1 ratio there). 


Here’s a quick picture of mine, before I made it disappear.

I understand vegans and vegetarians everywhere felt a great disturbance in the force when we ate these, but OH MY GOODNESS, this flavor combination (not to mention textures) was INCREDIBLY FABULOUS.

I ate two.  I was stuffed, but if there was more to be had, I might have jumped up and down to get what was in my stomach to settle so I could eat more.

Smoky, spicy, creamy, crunchy, squishy…pretty much all the food groups and textures I love. 

I don’t have a recipe or even a list of ingredients for the burger portion (which was great on its own, actually), but I know it included shredded zucchini (the last we’d frozen from last year’s garden), shredded carrots, oatmeal…lemon grass…I give up.  The veggie burgers are Bill’s domain, frankly, and I am perfectly happy to leave him to it, him being so spectacular at making them and all.

Anyway, I just wanted to share that with you A) because they were SO yummy and B) because it’s been so long since I felt like writing about food and C) because I wanted to write about something happy.

And this little sandwich (or two) is definitely happy-making.
