The menu at Casino el Camino on 6th street in downtown Austin is wonderfully hamburger-heavy. However, if you really love meat, I recommend The Double Dog Texas Tommy with a side of chili cheese fries (and it’s meat chili; none of that bean based crap). Two all-beef grilled hot dogs smothered in cheese. Delicious!
Every weekend, I cook up bacon for the full week. Here’s how:
Step 1: Pre-heat oven to 425.
Step 2: Line a cookie sheet with some aluminium foil.
Step 3: Fill tray with bacon.
Step 4: Place tray on top shelf of oven and bake for 15-20 minutes, depending on thickness of bacon and how well done you prefer it.
Step 5: Optional: for extra crispy finish the bacon quickly in a hot pan.
Step 6: Let bacon cool on a plate with paper towels to suck up the grease. Salt and pepper while still hot if you like. Serve with eggs.
Step 7: Take all the leftover bacon,, roll it up in the paper towels, and place in a ziplock bag in the fridge. All week grab a slice or two each morning to heat up in your pan while cooking breakfast. Clean up is easy, as you just roll up the aluminium foil with the grease in it once it cools.
Bonus tip: save that bacon grease. The bacon grease laden paper towels are great tinder for jump starting your charcoal grill and the bacon grease can be used to grease your pans with a little bacon juice.
