… because what is life without good food?

Bacon Morel Mushroom Salt

I’ve mentioned a few times about my adventures with Bacon Salt. Bacon Salt was responsible for that ridiculously good Bacon Ranch dressing that I freaking LOVE. The Bacon Salt that I buy strangely isn’t salty … it’s just bacon-y. It’s actually really low in sodium. That’s pretty awesome and I will continue to buy Bacon Salt because of that.

… but I decided I wanted to MAKE bacon salt for my sister for her birthday. (And for myself … cuz you know, I have to make sure it’s not poison if I’m going to give it as a gift, right?) … So I set out to do that … but as I was reaching for my Ninja chopper, my eyes lit upon my bag of dried morel mushrooms and I just couldn’t help myself, I had to throw in the mushrooms.

Because what’s better than bacon and morel mushrooms? Even the mushroom haters will love this … everyone I meet that hates mushrooms (aside from those who are allergic) says it’s a texture thing. They tell me the flavor is good, but they just can’t take the texture. But you see, here, in this seasoning, the flavor of the mushrooms is all ground up, all flavor. What an awesome concept … adding the FLAVOR of mushrooms without the texture. I love to sprinkle this on my eggs in the morning. Veggies get lively with a little bacon salt. Burgers of course would be fab with this salt … or chicken or pork. Because hey, what doesn’t go with bacon?

FYI: the big grains of salt can cause a little salty “crunch” in your food. If you want a salt that blends fully into your dishes, grind up your bacon salt to a fine grain with a spice (or coffee) grinder. I did this with some of my bacon salt and I like it even better that way!

Also, if you don’t have dried morel mushrooms, you can substitute other dried mushrooms. Morels just have such a superior flavor to other mushrooms. If you are lucky enough to find them at the right time of year, you can go out and pick morel mushrooms and dry them yourself (I am EXTREMELY lucky to have family members that do this for me), or you can go the easier route and purchase them on Amazon.

Or if you’re really just set on bacon salt, leave out the mushrooms altogether and you will have bacon salt. And life will go on, but it might be just a little bit better …

Namaste, sweet foodie friends. Go forth and make some bacon-y good stuff!
