Bacon Coffins! Bacon Turtles! Bacon Crusts! The World’s Craziest Bacon News!

Bacon Attacks!


“Hey, what’s with you and bacon?”

Anthony Lombardi, owner of the Anthony Robert Salon in New Jersey, and the terrific cast member of “Jerseylicious”, asked me that question last weekend. “Hey,” he said as he walked up to me in Atlantic City, “what’s with you and bacon?” I answered simply: “because it’s FUNNY.” And you NEVER cut funny.

Again, some guy made this horned bacon mask, and then posed for this picture. How can bacon NOT be funny?

Also, a pile of bacon is something that always gets a reaction – in fact, there seems to ALWAYS be “breaking” bacon news – and now people send me stories they come across – I guess so I can document them here, but mostly because they assume I “need to know.” And I do.

With that said, here are the latest “BACON HEADLINES!”

Behold the Bacon Coffin!

This was, without a doubt, the biggest “breaking bacon news” of the week. It was reported late last week that the guys who brought the world Bacon Salt, Baconnaise and most recently, Bacon Lube, had unveiled their latest creation: the bacon coffin.

For those who literally “love bacon to death.”

“You ate bacon, you decorated your body with bacon, your car with bacon and your home with bacon,” the press release proudly states. “And now, you can peacefully rest wrapped in bacon.”

The coffins are painted to look just like the deceased’s favorite food – with what the company calls a “bacon and pork shading.” They are accented with gold handles and come with an adjustable bed and mattress, ivory crepe linens and, yes, a bacon memorial tube.

The price to lie within bacon for eternity? $2,999.95 plus shipping and handling.

The company has already sold one, to someone in Iowa, Dave Lefkow, of J&D’s Foods told the Baltimore Sun.

Lefkow’s grandfather, Sigmund Danzansky, once co-owned the Baltimore area funeral home, Danzansky-Goldberg.

“Given that it’s a Jewish funeral home,” Lefkow joked, “I’m guessing they never would have sold these, but there you go.”

Bacon Turtles!

In case you missed these, our friends at unveiled the “bacon turtles!”

These “bacon turtles” are handmade ground beef patties topped with cheddar cheese and wrapped in a bacon weave – followed by Hebrew Nationals which are inserted as the heads, legs and tails.

Nothing more to see here – excpet to make one and eat it and decide for yourself just how wrong it is.

Colby Cheese Mac-n-Cheese Pie with a Bacon Crust!

Thanks to the crazy food guys at:

Here is how they describe it on their website: “To create the bacon crust I took a pound of Nueske’s Thick-Sliced Peppered Bacon and created a bacon weave on a sheet of tinfoil. I then flipped the bacon weave into a pie tin and patted it down before placing another pie tin on top of it so it would keep its shape when cooking. I also put together the lattice top (this time using Nueske’s Applewood Smoked Bacon) at the same time and put it in the oven along with the crust so that when the macaroni and cheese was done cooking on the stove I could fill the mostly cooked bacon crust with it, add some breadcrumbs, cover it with the lattice top and then throw it back in the oven to finish cooking. Once the pie was all done I let it cool on the window sill for a little while and then dug in!”

Cannot argue with THAT.

Bacon Cheeseburger Pizza

Yep, a bacon cheeseburger pizza, described as two bacon cheeseburger pizzas used as “buns” for a filling of bacon, bacon, bacon! Easy to describe, easy to make, easy to die…


NOW IT’S JUST GETTING WEIRD. This is a bacon-wrapped Twinkie statue of Stonehenge…thanks to the nuts at:

Celebrating things that are wrapped in bacon, like “bacon wrapped pizza rolls”:

Or what they call the greatest bacon wrapped food of all time:

The bacon wrapped pork beast.

Bacon strips, bacon sausage, ham sausage, ham slices, smoked pork sausage and roasted pork belly surrounded by ground sausage shaped into a pig, wrapped in bacon and roasted. Garnished with chili ears and tail.

So there you have it: lots of bacon news to chew on…enjoy!

  1. Wow – the creativity involved with bacon is amazing and very funny at the same time. Not sure how I feel about carving up a turtle that way 🙂
