Everythings Better with Bacon!

I have published the recipes and feast menu from my second German feast (Fasching: November 2005). Three of the recipes call for bacon. There was bacon in the Chicken Pie. There was bacon in the Fried Spinach. And there was bacon in the Fried Beans. The Cooked Onion Salad was particularly yummy when mixed with the Fried Beans.

I was told that when the last course was announced that Queen Isabeau asked in surprise to her retainer "What do you mean there's more food?"

And to this day Maestra Giulietta da Venezia still remarks on how much she enjoyed the Sour Orange Salad.

The Hungarian Cheese Soup in Bread Bowls were also quite delightful as the bread soaked up the moisture of the soup leaving more of a cheese dip in the hard crusted rolls.

The revelers also enjoyed mixing and matching the various items on the dessert course together (Snow, Stewed Cheeries and Springerle cookies).

Other recipes (that did not contain bacon) are:
