Nasty Little Treats

One of my favorites growing up was crickets caught in the park near the house. We would wash them up and then cook em with garlic and onion and butter. Well, ok I did most of my friends just looked at me like I was insane. Of course there is also the breakfast of death. Not so much disgusting as if you eat this your likely to get Diabetes, a heart attack high cholesteral and every fitness guru that has died will arise from the grave to smack the hell outa you.

It's thick cut bacon deep fried in butter to begin with. After you take the bacon out to let it crisp, you fry up eggs in the grease. You place this on a slice of texas toast with a large amount of your favorite cheese. I would sometimes add the crickets to the sandwitch. But not often. Any way you add the cheese and your sauces Katchup, mayo what ever you wanted. Add jalapeno peppers.. Then you make hash using more bacon and butter. And a hunk of cheese. You searve all this with a chocolate shake or when we got older a cold beer. Tasted great, not so goood for you.

What's the difference between Braunschweiger and Liverwurst?

Braunschweiger is the goodness of yum. My father introduced me to it when I was a kid. I was always the odd one at school. While every one else was eating PBand J and Oscar Myer sandwitches. I was eating the goodness that is Braunschweiger. Even now when we go shopping. My payment for carting all the food in is Braunschweiger. My favorite brand so far is Usingers and I have not yet found a more creamy goodness then that. Now what I want to know is what is the craziest thing you have mixed with this wonderful nom. Me it was Vanilla Icecream. Don't ask, it actualy tasted good. I'm not going further into how it happened.
