You may have missed the best Father's Day event in Central Florida - so get on the ball and secure your plans for next year!!!
Each truck made four different bacon items:
- Best Original Bacon
- Best Novelty Bacon
- Best Bacon Side
- Best Bacon Product
So basically - you go to each truck and get the sample platter - then vote for your favorite while your in bacon coma.
First up - the Big Wheel Truck. We had some awesome bacon, a short-rib bacon, bacon dip and bacon polenta.
I've learned that it's very hard for me to judge bacon because it's all just so good. I was surprised by how much I like the polenta. And the bacon dip. It could have come with a few more crackers. But I loved it so much I spent the afternoon looking for different things I could dip into it. The original bacon was the perfect consistency for me - not too hard, not to soft - just melts in your mouth.
Then it was time to try the Brisket Bus.
So we had original bacon - but it was infused with root beer.
Then a buffalo wing, also bacon sauced. A bacon corn bread and bacon jelly bruschetta.
My youngest loved the buffalo wing so much he demanded more - but that wasn't possible.
The corn bread was delicious - I was really impressed also by the bruschetta.
It's simply amazing what you can do with bacon!!!
Not only was there bacon - but also beer, music and an all-you-can-eat buffet! I have to mention I also had some of the best brownies of my life. The Batter Bowl truck was selling additional items, including a salted caramel bacon infused brownie. Yes, it was as amazing as it sounds.
It was a perfect Father's Day event for the whole family! Next time - we need to wear some good bacon-related clothing to really blend in!!
