Foodie culture needs the occasional moment of levity. Sometimes we tend to take our passions too seriously. Or not seriously enough, as in this case, when the Food Network published a Rachel Ray recipe for "Late Night Bacon." Apparently adding the modifier "Late Night" makes it more...I don't know...mysterious. But no, it's just boring ol' bacon. Here's the recipe:
Not this isn't pretty funny in its own right, but the commentary really brings it. Please check it out now before the Food Network gets wise and pulls it down: http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/rachael-ray/late-night-bacon-recipe/index.html
- "Rachel, I happen to know for a fact that you stole this recipe from my father. It's the EXACT same recipe he's been making for years. Did you really think you could get away with this? You'll be hearing from our lawyer."
- "Hi Rachel Ray,
I have a huge dilemma. I love, love, love bacon and your recipe sounds DELICIOUS! But I'm just can't stay up until "late nite". What do I do???!!! Can you please urgently post a morning or preferably a mid to late morning bacon recipe? Thanks!"
- "I was really hoping to combine this scrumptious recipe with some toast, but I can't find the recipe anywhere on the Food Network. Rachel, please help me...if you know how."
- "Do you have any recipes for cereal? The kind in a box? I really like cereal, but it seems tricky- milk first? cereal? big spoon? little spoon?"
- "Tried this recipe last night. The bacon was great, but the paper towels tasted awful."
