Red neck style sushi?

Red neck style sushi?
Well slave wanted to come up with something special for February Fools Day! While the appeal of sushi just never registered with slave, Master has had the best from around the world. It did sound elegant but really? I don't think so. Instead of rice rolls with raw fish, how about bacon wrapped cheeseburger with BBQ glaze? Now that was something I could really get behind – as it were.

BBQ Bacon Beef rolls


6 pieces of bacon

¾ lbs ground beef

Your favorite BBQ rub/spice

Swiss Cheese in a block

Pre heat oven to 350. Spray a cooking rack and sit it on a foil lined pan.

Lay out the bacon on a piece of wax paper if you don't have a sushi mat handy. - I don't!

Mix and season the beef. Apply it as a thin layer on top of the bacon.

Cut cheese into a 1 x 1 inch log. Lay at one end of beef.

Using the wax paper (sushi mat), roll it up like a rice roll:  

Place bacon log on the sprayed rack. Let bake for 35 minutes. Brush with BBQ sauce, bake for 10 minutes, brush again and bake for an additional 10 minutes. Remove carefully and let it rest for a full 5 minutes.

Lay out a small tray of french fried onions. Carefully roll log in the crunchy onions, packing them as a nice coating. You could also use crispy fried hash brown potatoes spread out like lace.

Cut the loaf into hockey puck sized pieces and serve with a side of BBQ sauce and/or pickle relish. Make it look like fancy sushi dish: even have chop sticks if you really want to have a true red-neck style sushi.

Slave served this with a rice dish and some roasted sugar snap peas.

OK, so it is not sushi. But what it is – is a cleaver and thoughtful, even playful dinner, made with the things we all enjoy!

Special note: the one sure way to tell if you have done BBQ right is when after the meal you feel the need to take a shower. THAT is a good BBQ!

Now for some great music for your repast:

That covers a large range of tastes, so it is hoped something there will warm your hearts.

Hope your day is special with your special one!
