I found some of this skillet bacon spread at Zupan's in Portland, and so far have tried it in two dishes: (1) I stirred a spoonful in with some butter and cream, then added diced crabmeat and diced tomatoes for a rich sauce to spoon over some grilled halibut (amazing), and (2) this morning I put a tablespoon or so in a frying pan with a pat of butter and then made a couple over easy eggs for breakfast (served on top of a small pile of steamed spinach). It's quite good and I can see many uses for it. Plus, created in Airstreams! Bonus!
From the Skillet website:
In 2007, Chef Josh Henderson created Skillet Street Food in Seattle, one of the first food experiences of what has since become a prototype for the national street food movement that has swept the country. Out of a vintage Airstream trailer, he created innovative lunch menus based on American-inspired food prepared with classic technique and seasonal ingredients. The reception from Seattle'ites was immediate and passionate. They were drawn to the chef driven food, the excitement of being a part of a new, energetic, urban experience, and to the intimate involvement through the use of social media channels that intensified the connection with the Skillet brand.
