If you like me, on Fathers Day you want to take your well deserved lazy day meaning you want plop yourself on the couch with the remote control and watch sports and T.V. all day. The only interruptions you want of course or gifts that your family is sure to provide and of course meal and beverage service. A few months ago I spoke to Wiley Publishing and they provided this recipe at my request from The Bacon Cookbook by James Villas.
