Let’s talk about dinner. A friend gave me a bunch of her old Food & Drink magazines, which is apparently made by the LCBO (the Liquor Control Board of Ontario) and is FREE to people shopping in the LCBO stores. Anyhow, I’m leafing through the Summer 2011 issue and I came across a recipe for “Peameal Bacon on a Bun.”
Prosaic name for a very tasty dinner.
There are basically 2 parts to this.
1/2 cup Dijon mustard
1 tbsp bourbon
2 tsp brown sugar
Stir till mixed.
1 cup cooked corn (I used frozen)
1 cup seeded and chopped tomato
1/2 cup chopped yellow pepper
1/2 cup chopped sweet onion
1 jalapeno, seeded and chpped
1/2 tsp brown sugar
1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
1 tbsp olive oil
salt and pepper to taste
You chop the veggies up (next time I will add more tomato and less onion. I’m also thinking a little lemon juice might brighten up the flavor). Then you add the other stuff and stir till combined.
Now you take 4 buns or rolls. The recipe calls for kaisers, but I went with ciabatta rolls. Slice those up.
Take 4 slices of peameal bacon and cook it (if it’s fully cooked, great, you just want to warm it through). After one side is done (1-3 minutes???), coat with some of the bourbon mustard mixture, and flip it.
Put more bourbon mustard on each roll. Add a couple of lettuce leaves, the bacon and some of the corn relish. I added it as a side too. And you’re done. Easy peasy.
Original recipe can be found here. Probably simplest to do a search on summer 2011 and look for “Peameal Bacon on a Bun.”
