The fascination with bacon appears to be a vintage thing, too. From the Kingan’s Reliable Meat Recipe Book, from 1952, there are some interesting bacon recipes. I’ve never seen any version of this before, but it’s not really fondue – more like bacon/toast casserole. Still sounds pretty good, though.
Dice 1/2 pound Kingan’s Reliable Sliced Bacon. Fry until crisp; drain. Cut 6 slices trimmed bread in cubes. Fill casserole with alternate layers of bread cubes and bacon, beginning with bread and ending with bacon. Beat 6 eggs; add 3 cups milk, 1 teaspoon salt, and a dash of pepper. Pour into casserole. Bake in moderate oven (350F) 1 hour.
Nothing healthy here, including that 1 teaspoon of salt! Who has another unusual bacon recipe?
