Goodbye Fondue and Grilled Teriyaki Scallops with Bacon

By Rocco Loosbrock


Bacon fans, as you know I have been talking about bacon and wine lately.  But bacon and bear?  Face it, it`s a new reality.  The brewers over at Newcastle Brown Ale just released their holiday MAN-ual, featuring recipes from Sam the Cooking Guy including his Goodbye Fondue and Grilled Teriyaki Scallops featuring our favorite friend bacon.  Sam`s philosophy on cooking is big in taste, small in effort. " 


Sam the Cooking Guy prides himself on being an everyday guy who makes food understandable.  Sam has his own cooking show called Just Cook This!  Sam`s first cookbook was released this year and features 126 of his favorite recipes.


Here is a sneak peek at Sam`s Recipe from his book:

10 pieces pre-cooked bacon, finely chopped
