Well, we didn’t win…

but we sure had fun trying!

We’ll be doing it again next year (actually we’re curing more bacon and pancetta right now…)

    Looks like a winning sandwich to me! I can't imagine all the effort that went into making this sandwich, but I can imagine how great the reward tasted!!

    Chow and Chatter – ha! We had no thoughts of winning anything but it was a lot of fun knowing that there were so many other people out there doing the same thing!

    You'll get it next time, and yes, having fun is a big part of the contest!

    Fresh Local – I don't know about that – there were so many people… Still, we were not in it to win it…

    The guy made his own salt? And started weeks before the contest was even declared? I call SHENANIGANS!

    Even if you didn't win you definitely gave me (and lot more other people) lots of inspiration and new ideas!

    Thanks for your kind words on my blog! I really appreciate it!

    I love BLTs, especially the bacon part. Have you ever tried "bacon jam"? A mobile Seattle restaurant called Skillet sells this awesome ingredient. It's basically rendered down and cooked bacon, which they turn into a spread and put it on burgers or whatever. It's one of the best burgers I've ever had. I'll be reviewing Skillet on my Om Nom Nom Nom blog soon (www.nmos-omnomnomnom.blogspot.com).

    ELTW, anyone who makes their own pancetta is a winner in my book!

    Amanda – thanks!

    NMOS – bacon jam??? Will most certainly be looking into this!!

    Kate – yes, Neil deserves accolades for his pancetta!
