Bacon and Butternut Squash Penne

This dish is a take on a recipe I saw from Jamie Oliver a while back. We’ve substituted bacon for the pancetta and changed how the squash is prepared. It may seem like a small change, but I think it works. Using bacon in larger pieces and cooking them off a bit longer adds a…

Bacon Avocado and Tomato Sandwich

I know this looks like a take on a BLT, but it’s not. What this sandwich is though, is amazing. It’s an elevated version of avocado toast. Avocado is amazing. Avocado toast is even better. But a bacon avocado and tomato sandwich is a crunchy, savory and tangy dream. The simplicity of the sandwich makes it…

Broccoli and Kale Soup

I’m a big fan of thick and creamy soups. In trying to eat a little healthier (have to do something to balance out the amounts of whiskey and bacon we consume!) I find that that combo leads to potatoes and/or cream being added to the soup. No ma gusta. Then the idea hit…beans. Loads of good stuff…

Crispy Smashed Potatoes

Traveling and eating are two of our favorite things.  When they can happen at the same time…BOOM goes the dynamite! This spring/summer was a heavy travel season for me and it proved delicious. Of all the things I tried, one stuck with me because of it’s simplicity and tastiness. Tender yet crispy, the smashed potatoes…

Summer Scape Salsa

Things we love about summer: Sun, Patio Drinking, Drive-Ins, Patio Drinking and Garlic Scapes. Garlic, in general, is a fave, but scapes are a magical summer treat. They come from the green tops of garlic (think scallions to an onion) and have a great mild garlic flavor that goes delish in almost any dish. This…

Whiskey Roasted Veggie Burger

With all the bacon we consume, every now and then we like to do our hearts a favor and bulk up on the veggies. Though the idea of one of those cardboard tasting veggie burgers is less than desirable. So we revamped the veggie burger into a roasted stack of awesomeness.  These thick cut veggies…

Bacon and Shrimp Burger

In case you haven’t noticed, we love to travel and eat. You should try it some time! (In fact, we have a cult following – the Whiskey Bacon Traveling Circus, which you should probably check out!) It’s great, you get to experience new and awesome places, as well as try new dishes that may not…

Circles on the Square

Circles on the Square is the spot to get a great deli lunch. I will tell anyone and everyone that. Ever. Forever. Many of the breads are baked in house, as well as some deserts, which your mouth can tell. Whiskey Beard, Dan, expected more bacon, toasted bread and a little melted in his Owen’s Original,…

Homemade Bacon Breakfast Tacos Recipe

To say that we love breakfast is an understatement. We adore and fawn over breakfast…no really. So anytime we come up with a quick and easy breakfast recipe, good days become epic! This breakfast taco recipe is great because it’s quite simple, tastes amazing and – the really awesome bit – can be made ahead…
