We had a lot of fun with our first Bacon Salt Recipe contest. The recipes were incredible, from salads to barbecue and everything in between - we all gained about 10 pounds. There were snack foods like popcorn, salads like summer salads, pasta salads, drinks like bloody marys and vodka shots, cheese grits, vodka soaked tomatoes, amazing pork burgers, salsas, and even rock candy and fried pickles.
All the great entries made it very hard to pick just one winner. So we decided to pick one grand prize winner (year of free Bacon Salt), and a few honorable mentions (free 3-pack of Bacon Salt).
Grand Prize Winner - year's supply of Bacon Salt:
Bacon Salt Fried Chicken, by Rod L. - this was sooo good. Congratulations!
Honorable Mentions - one free sampler pack:
- Penne Pasta with Arugula, Mascarpone and Bacon Salt with Peppered Bacon Salted Pan Fried Kale, by Tami H. from Running with Tweezers
- Fried Red Potatoes with Pork and Bacon Salt Gravy, by Mark H.
- Bacon Salt Air Freshener, by Mark W. - this isn't a recipe, per se - but it wins the creativity prize!
- Bacony Chex Mix, by Jon E.
We'll post some more of the great ones on here over the next couple of weeks. We'll also announce a winner of our Bacon Salt photoshop contest with folks from the University of Kansas's phog.net (we're slow on the draw on that one, but getting to it!).
Thanks again for all your entries, and if you have more recipes to send, we'll enter you into the next contest if you email them to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
