So things have been a little hectic around here with Hurricane Irene churning in the Caribbean right now. I’m so bummed because we had a bachelorette party weekend planned for Holden Beach, NC for this weekend and now it looks like that may need to be rescheduled. The last place I want to be is in an ocean front beach house during a Cat 3 hurricane, no thanks.
Its still a little too early to tell though where exactly it is going to make land fall….closer to the NC/SC border, only NC, only SC, or stay off into the Atlantic. Although since the storm would be close to 200 miles wide by the time it makes landfall, its hard to imagine how we wouldn’t feels some effects from it.
Anyway, I had some ground beef that I wanted to use up and I want to try making sliders for the first time instead of the usual burger patty. I came up with the idea of making a hickory BBQ sauce and brown sugar bacon sliders, and oh my god these were so good! Caramelizing the brown sugar on top of the bacon pieces under the broiler gave the bacon this amazing sweet and savory combination. I watched this video on how to make perfectly shaped sliders, a really good idea!!
