If you have a weakness for salty bacon, zippy hot sauce and creamy butter... you're in the right place. ;-) 

Buttery Bacon Sauce was initially created for popcorn, but I declare it officially scrumptious as a dunking sauce for bread.

The possibilities are nearly endless... but before I digress too far off course, I'd better post this simple recipe!  

  • 1/2 cup Butter (1 stick)
  • 3-4 oz Bacon -or- 1/4 cup bacon bits
  • 1-2-3 or more teaspoons of Louisiana Hot Sauce (or your personal favorite)
  • 1/4 teaspoon Garlic Seasoning Salt- or add to taste
  • Crushed red pepper flakes- the hot ones. ;-)

Use scissors to cut the bacon into small pieces. Sprinkle with a pinch of pepper flakes and fry in a medium sauce pan over medium heat until crispy. Drain on a paper towel and pat off the excess grease.

Use another paper towel to wipe out the pan, removing most of the bacon grease. Add the butter and let it melt slowly.

While the butter is melting, put the bacon pieces into a bullet, blender or food processor. Wiz-bang the bacon for about 10-20 seconds until it is finely ground as pictured.

Add the melted butter, salt and hot sauce to the bacon in the blender. Wiz-bang again for a few seconds.

Taste the sauce and add more salt or hot sauce as preferred. 

Drizzle over fresh popcorn, use it as a dipping sauce for soft breadsticks... or? ;-)

Refrigerate any leftovers for use in other recipes. I have a few ideas I'll share soon. I hope you'll share your ideas, too.

Yummers! That does sound like it would be good on popcorn!
wow looks good :)

BEG... to some. >;-D

I made this today for an Oyster appetizer I'm working on. I'm doing the Atkins diet for a few weeks... so I can eat half a dozen! ;-P~
I've had a lot of success on Atkins and have thought about doing it again. I'll definitely try this recipe if I do, just to have more variety. Thanks.

BTW, if you know any more good Atkins related recipes, I'd sure appreciate the links. You can also PM me. ;)

I love Atkins, too. The only drawback I've experienced is foot cramping... but that's just a temporary inconvenience.

I have a fantastic, drool-inspiring Atkins-friendly recipe I'll be publishing soon. I'll send to your way ahead of time. ;-)
Thanks! btw, I've never experienced any foot cramping (weird). Once I get over the first few days of no carbs, I'm good to go for a long time. Its just tough getting enough variety to keep interested, and stay within a budget! So that would be great if you could pass along some recipes. I think it might also inspire me to publish a few I have as well. ;)
