Slow cook your way to bacon-y, brisket-y happiness. This is one of those stupid-easy yet impressive meals. Makes for a great weeknight dinner but is fancy enough for company too!
So we’ve been in our new house for about a month now, and this weekend we had some friends over for dinner for the first time.
My sweet friend Lara brought me a housewarming gift. The main dish was prepped and ready to serve. Everything was going great. And then my oven erupted in flames.
Some of the things going through my brain:
1) WHERE IS MY LANDLORD
2) We’re gonna die.
3) Do you KNOW how messy fire extinguishers are? Can’t we blow this thing out, birthday candle style?
4)I still have brownies to bake dang it, and here is my oven, being all like, I’M ON FIRE.
Don’t ever become a blogger, by the way. People get crazy visual expectations. You tell your mom there’s a fire and she’s like, prove it Karen.
Although in Mom’s defense, one time bees invaded her house through her fireplace (What? Yes really) and she had copious visual documentation. I’ll try to be better Mom.
You want to know the best thing about today’s recipe? NO BROILING. Meaning NO FIRE.
At least I’VE never managed to light my slow cooker on fire. (Have you?? Come on tell me all your kitchen fire stories!!)
This brisket has 3 things going for it (I mean besides the fact that it’s brisket): the bacon, the blue cheese, and the ONIONS. (They are to die for.) That’s pretty much the entire recipe, and it’s fabulous. Super easy to throw together, and then later in the day dinner is done. Perfect for busy holiday nights coming up! But also fancy enough for company. Or heck you could even serve it at Christmas or Thanksgiving, if you’re not feeling the turkey this year. Bacon is always the right choice!
