Alton Brown's Good Eats


Recommended Posts

From the Food Network website:

Pop culture, comedy, and plain good eating: Host Alton Brown explores the origins of ingredients, decodes culinary customs and presents food and equipment trends. Punctuated by unusual interludes, simple preparations and unconventional discussions, he'll bring you food in its finest and funniest form.

One of the recipes he's had on his show that I'm going to try out sometime:

Praline Bacon

Ingredients

 

* 1 pound thick cut bacon

* 2 1/2 ounces light brown sugar, about 6 tablespoons

* 1 1/2 ounces pecan halves

 

Directions

 

Heat the oven to 400 degrees F.

 

Line a half sheet pan with aluminum foil. Arrange the bacon in a single layer on a cooling rack, and set it in the prepared sheet pan. Bake until the bacon browns and the fat is rendered and bubbly. About 30 to 35 minutes.

 

Meanwhile, combine the brown sugar and pecans in a small food processor. Pulse about 15 times or until the pecans are finely chopped.

 

Remove the bacon from the oven, sprinkle with the brown sugar mixture, and pat down to adhere. Return to the oven a bake until the bacon is crisp, about 10 minutes.

 

Cool on the rack for 10 minutes before serving.

His show is definitely the best cooking show ever. There really isn't anyone who compares on the Food Network. Lissette has made countless recipes using the DVDs of his shows.

 

Most cooking shows are a little boring, but he explains the science of everything and he uses puppets . . . puppets!

The latest winner of Food Network Star was mentored by him during the competition. It seemed like he was grooming him to be his successor since his show was cancelled last year.
