Chicken Fried Bacon!
Did you know our calendar is packed full of Food Holidays just ready to be celebrated? Yep it sure is, and we think chicken fried bacon is a perfect dish to serve for  International Bacon Day. Serve fried bacon with your favorite
type of gravy and your holiday party will be a real hit!

What is Chicken Fried Bacon?
"Chicken fried bacon consists of bacon strips dredged in batter and deep fried, like chicken fried steak. It is an American dish that was introduced in Texas in the early 1990s. Frank Sodolak of Sodolak's Original Country Inn in Snook, Texas is credited as having invented the food."

"Chicken fried bacon has been gaining in popularity as it is featured in popular YouTube videos, a book of Texas curiosities, and an increasing number of restaurant menus. It is usually served as an appetizer with a white "country" or cream gravy for dipping and sauce."

"In recent years, the dish has made its way across America and it is served in Chicago at the Risque Cafe in Lake View. The Risque Cafe's version of "country-fried bacon" is served with white gravy. It is prepared using an egg wash, dredged in heavily peppered flour and deep fried in vegetable oil. The café's chef, Andrew Niemeyer, said he "played around with the idea" while a student of the Cooking and Hospitality Institute of Chicago (he graduated in 2005) and did not mention that he was retracing ground pioneered years before in Texas."

"Sodolak's YouTube video inspired others to copy the recipe, such as Don Yovicsin of Jake's Dixie Roadhouse, Waltham, Massachusetts. Alerted by a customer, he quickly made his own version, which he jokes is served "with a Lipitor I.V." (Yovicsin serves only four strips of bacon)."

Health issues
"Since the dish is rich in saturated fat, many health experts suggest consuming it in moderation or not at all. Sally Squires of the Washington Post acknowledged chicken fried bacon's appeal to the palate, but suggests moderation. Other experts note the dish's low nutritional benefits: "They've taken fat, they've double-coated it in fat, they've fried it in more fat, and then they've served it with a side order of fat." Jane Hurley, senior nutritionist at the Center for Science in the Public Interest in Washington, D.C., stated she's "never heard of anything worse."
