And yes, I am thinking of going to therapy for being a baconaholic....
But before I go there, just hear me out. Please?
Because this recipe is really, really good. No joke, your friends and family may ridicule you for wrapping your pig in pork, but they will then bow at your feet....worshipping the pork God/Goddess that you have become.
