“The mass of men lead lives of quiet desperation.”

Henry David Thoreau

I stumbled upon this interesting little bit of information while perusing the Lifehacker site (a treasure trove of cool ideas of all types) and, though I realize I’m probably extremely late to the party, here, I still thought it was worth posting.

The too-cool-for-school hack here is the use of a waffle iron for bacon preparation.  Why have I not heard of/thought of this before?  Who knows.  In taking this idea one step further, though, how about employing a George Foreman Grill for the same purpose?  My old school GF grill has a nifty and efficient grease catch, so saving all those scrumptious bacon drippings would be a snap.

And what about those damn hash browns?  Hey, use sweet potatoes, if you like.  Not full-on Paleo, to be sure – they’re a much better option, though, than the white variety, if you’ve got an overwhelming hankering for something starchy.  Of course you could always substitute zucchini and/or squash here and still put the same “hash brown” method to work.

And hey, if nothing else, Alton Brown is just entertaining as hell to watch!

Enjoy –

  1. I heard about this the other day also. I’ve cooked about everything on a GF at one point or another, even bacon. Didn’t remember anything particularly special about it. I’ll have to try again. Cant watch the vid. My normal internet is down from a storm 🙁

    I’ll take the zucchini! I love fried zucchini! I just did a write-up on mashed potato alternatives. Zucchini was at the top of that list too!
