Five Epic Meal Time Bacony Delicious Dishes
With more than 600 million views in weekly webisodes and more than 6.6 million YouTube subscribers to date, Harley Morenstein, a.k.a. the “Sauce Boss,” and his all-Canadian Epic Meal Time kitchen crew are YouTube cooking sensations.
In addition, Morenstein and Josh Elkin, a.k.a. "Epic Mook," wrote the "Epic Meal Time Cookbook -- You Did This." In their own words: "Does a six-patty burger buried under a mound of bacon have your mouth watering?"
So, in the spirit of celebrating both BaCon and "Epic Meal Empire," here's five Epic Meal Time bacon-infused dishes.
As Morenstein says: "We get tons of liquor, bacon, meat grinder, sausage casings and friends. This sounds like a sausage fest; but when we do a sausage fest, no dudes allowed!"
An 84-egg sandwich and a blueberry muffin. As Morenstein says: "We combine the powers of 84 eggs, 10 pounds of bacon, endless amounts of sausage, cheese and some liquor! This is how we do breakfast, player!"
This takes the holidays to the next level with a Christmas tree, 2,000 plus bacon strips and some fast food! As Morenstein says: "Where you at you Grinch ass bitch?! Spread some holiday cheer! Stop being a holiday Scrooge and get in on this holiday fast with this bacon-licker fixture."
The Breakfast Fortress is a breakfast of booze. In Morenstein's words, it's "getting drunk off pancakes" with "candied bacon. It's like dog treats for human beings."
The TurBacon Epic is an Epic Meal Time special just for Thanksgiving. It's "a bird in a bird in a bird in a bird in a bird in a pig."
