An interesting problem requires drastic action


January 2012

I hit the scale today and was a little disheartened to find that I dropped another pound – that puts me at 157.2.  If I go by the BMI calculators, I’m smack dab, right in the middle of my healthy weight – in other words, I don’t want to lose any more…

So drastic measures are in order.  WARNING:  If you’re on a diet, stop reading this now.  If you happen to be a cardiologist, look away, look away.

Big Daddy Jim’s Bad-Bad BBQ Bacon Burgers:

1/3 lb Burger (ea.) times 2 per person

Fry Bacon (2 pcs per burger minimum) in a skillet

Dice one onion and saute the onion in the leftover bacon grease – if you think this sounds good, wait till you smell it.  Yum

Place onions on a plate and set in the oven with the bacon (which you also put on a plate for the litigious in the house) and keep warm at 210 degrees F – this trick also works for large meals that you can’t possibly make everything finish at the same time.

Prepare burgers, season with McCormick’s Spicy Montreal Steak Seasoning

Grill burgers (or fry them in the leftover bacon grease if your cholesterol level on your last checkup was below 150).

Top burger with bacon, sauteed onions, a little mayo and some Sweet Baby Rays Barbeque Sauce

Serve with a side salad…(Kind of like the Diet Coke with a Double Cheeseburger, Chicken Nuggets and Large Fries).

Good luck just eating one – I won’t.


UPDATE:  I didn’t eat just one and they were heavenly…  I didn’t think that the recipe, simple as it was, could be improved upon.  I was mistaken.  God bless my lovely wife who suggested donning the burger with…  wait for it… 

Mesquite BBQ Potato Chips

I need a nap.
