6 Degrees of Bacon

It has been over 20 years since "Tremors," which starred Kevin Bacon, played in theaters. Where has the time gone? I remember going to the theater to see this movie on its first run.

365-160 6 Degrees Kevin Bacon BLT Melt
Day 160/365

For those who missed it the first time around, "Tremors" is playing at midnight tonight at the Capitol Theater. As is often the case with the Capitol Theater's Late Shift movies, Melt created a sandwich to pair with the movie: 6 Degrees of Kevin Bacon BLT Melt ($16.00).

The sandwich is enormous! The list of goodness includes hickory smoked bacon, applewood smoked bacon, black pepper crusted slab bacon, pancetta, candied bacon, herb cream cheese mixed with bacon bits, bacon infused mayonnaise, sharp cheddar, romaine, and tomatoes.

I could barely make a dent into my half of the sandwich with my first bite. What a glorious first bite it was - a bit of hickory smoked bacon, some lettuce and tomato, and a beautiful marriage of flavors from the herb cream cheese, bacon, and mayonnaise.

Subsequent bites were on the verge being overwhelming with the combination of smoke, pepper, saltiness, and sweetness. It was like taking a culinary dive attached to a bungee cord. Just as you are about to hit the ground screaming, the cord reels you back.

OMG, are you sure it shouldn't be called: Death by Bacon!?!

Hi Michael,

Hah! It was not as overwhelming as a 1 lb burger feels in your belly. I think the amount of lettuce and tomatoes helps a lot, at least mentally. :)

Twenty years? Man, that movie was so fun when it came out (and all the times it was rerun on tv too :)

Bacon. One of the four major food groups....
