Instructions
  1. Buy the biggest piece of rind-on slab bacon you can find. Unsliced.
  2. Cut the bacon into hunks. About 2″ cubed is good. Stick it on a… stick. A skewer is okay too.
  3. Slowly roast the bacon over a campfire (or grill). As it renders, drop the drippings onto a slice of rye bread. This is then eaten with various toppings, such as sliced onion, peppers, tomatoes, or radishes. The browned bits of bacon can be shaved off, onto the bread or into a salad.
  4. While you wait for the bacon to render, talk about the meaning of life, the joys of the evening, and your hopes for tomorrow. Talk until you yawn. Talk until dawn.
