Before we talk Bacon, lets talk brunch.
Saturday after my Luna Chix bike ride, I met my Ragnar team at Claire’s on Cedros.
I’ve always been intrigued by Claire’s. Claire’s building is LEED Platinum certified (the only restaurant in San Diego) & their food is sustainable as well.
I ordered the Mushroom & Roasted Tomato omelet but all the dishes looked tasty! I will be back to try their famous pancakes or maybe lunch!
Ok, back to bacon..
Saturday night our friends Adam & Janie put on a potluck Bacon Party! Everyone was to bring a bacon dish of some kind & the best bacon dish would win a prize.
Unfortunately, this potluck fell during our vegetarian trial month. We decided to go anyways!
What do you bring to a bacon party when you aren’t eating bacon? Fake bacon!
Todd came up with the idea and did all the leg work. He found a recipe for Eggplant Bacon here and used it to make Facon wrapped asparagus.
Cut asparagus into 3 inch pieces and wrap eggplant around a few pieces of asparagus.
Besides the Facon wrapped asparagus, I made Jessica’s
Crazy Feta Dip & added crumbled facon to it! I’m sure it would be awesome with real bacon as well!
Not eating bacon at this party was tough! Look at all this food!
Everything looked great! I did my share of eating as well. There were some great non-bacon items as well. Ratatouille, quiche, salad, chips, guacamole, Crazy Feta, fruit (I think I ate my body weight in fruit), sangria & lemon mint water.
What can even compare to a bacon party?? Any thoughts?
