God help me, this looks so delicious...

OK, you know how the title of this website promises "other nonsense" than video games? Well, here we are.

(just what does this have to do with bacon?)

While looking around for "explosions" on Google image, I came across an intriguing listing for something called "The Bacon Explosion."

The Bacon Explosion is: cooked bacon wrapped in sausage wrapped in woven bacon strips which is then barbecued.

Did you see that picture above? OMG! It looks SOOOO good!! The recipe for those of you brave enough to try it at home can be found here.

Bon appetite!
