Over the previous few years, I’ve been creeping within the background of Martha and Snoop Dogg’s wonderful friendship— and I simply love Snoop. He has an incredible open perspective about cooking and at all times asks Martha to “train me the right way to be taught”—however I’ve realized so much from Snoop too. I credit score myself for giving him his first home made crouton, however he confirmed me the right way to make the crispiest bacon ever. He requested me to make him a recipe for a barbecue rooster Cobb salad with all the great things in it. It was one hundred pc Snoop’s thought so as to add the home made blue corn tortilla strips, which was sensible—it’s precisely what a Cobb salad must tie all the pieces collectively.

Be aware: I used to be mesmerized, I used to be shocked, I used to be anxious as I watched Snoop from the tv monitor within the again kitchen as he dumped strips of bacon right into a scorching pan, piled up on prime of one another in a giant clump. He swirled it round sometimes for about quarter-hour with a pair of tongs whereas he talked. I had at all times laid every strip flat, neatly becoming them within the pan, typically having to make a number of batches. However he dumped the bacon onto a paper towel–lined plate, and I noticed how completely crispy and additional curly it was. I’ve by no means made bacon the outdated approach once more.
