Double Bacon Update! "Toxic Sludge" + Bacon Grilled Cheese Brownwiches

Ahoy, mateys! I've been busy, but I hope this double update makes up for my absence.

First is "Toxic Sludge," a recipe born of serendipity. I combined a whole mess-a leftovers for this one: Swiss Chalet rotisserie chicken breast, Swiss Chalet gravy, ground beef with veggies, mashed potatoes. I fried these up with bacon, and the results "...showed us that even hideous things can be sweet on the inside!"

The dish is notable for including one each of the big three meats: beef, pork and chicken. Also, it is entirely yummy, and makes a nice hearty meal. If there's an ideal way to get rid of leftovers, it's getting rid of them with bacon.

The second dish... the Bacon Grilled Cheese Brownwich.

Alright, this recipe is simple. You know how to make grilled cheese, right? And you know how to make grilled cheese with bacon? Okay, now replace the bread with hash browns. I used processed cheddar cheese as well as Asiago, but you can use whatever kind you want. Eat with a fork unless you want really greasy hands.

Speaking of really greasy: While this dish is delicious, it is even less healthy than most of what you'll find here. Enjoy sparingly. I made three and actually had trouble finishing the third. The processed cheese is like throat glue.

But it IS delicious, no question about that.
