Featured Recipe: Baked Beans in Bacon Cups

Makes: Two dozen

Ingredients
For the honey
1 cup honey 1 fresh habanero chile, thinly sliced

For the beans
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil 1 large yellow onion, very finely chopped 2 1/2 cups canned navy beans, drained and rinsed 3/4 cup (packed) light brown sugar 2 thick-cut bacon strips, finely chopped 1/4 cup port wine 3 tablespoons finely chopped fresh cilantro leaves 1 1/2 tablespoons dark molasses 1 teaspoon chili powder 2 teaspoons coarse salt

For the bacon cups
Nonstick pan spray 2 pounds thin-cut bacon

For serving
1/4 cup sour cream 1/4 cup finely chopped red or yellow bell pepper (or a combination of the two) 2 scallions, white and light green parts, thinly sliced

Instructions
Honey
Pour the honey into a small saucepan and bring to a simmer over medium heat. Turn off the heat, add the habanero, and allow the honey to cool to room temperature. Strain through a fine mesh sieve into an airtight container.

Beans
Heat the olive oil in a medium pot over medium heat. Add the onion and cook until translucent, about 3 minutes. Add the beans, brown sugar, bacon, port, cilantro, molasses, 1 tablespoon of the habanero honey, and the chili powder and salt. Stir to combine, and bring to a simmer over medium heat. Reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer gently until the mixture is reduced by half, about 20 minutes. Turn off the heat and set aside to cool to room temperature.

Bacon Cups
Preheat the oven to 350°F.

Turn a mini muffin pan upside-down and lightly coat the bottom with nonstick pan spray.
Crisscross 3 slices of bacon over each upturned cup, and then place another mini muffin pan on top so that the bacon slices are compressed between the two pans. Place the pans on a rimmed baking sheet and bake until the bacon cups are crisp and browned, about 20 minutes. Remove the baking sheet from the oven and set aside to cool completely.
Lift off the top pan. Carefully remove the bacon cups from the bottom pan and place them on a paper-towel-lined baking sheet to drain, wrong side up.

How to Serve
Gently reheat the beans in a saucepan over medium heat until warmed through (add 1 tablespoon water if they’re too thick or dry). Place a spoonful of the beans into each bacon cup. Top with a dot of sour cream, some bell peppers, and a scallion ring. Serve.

So here's the deal. I read the reviews, purchased it anyway. The photos are really nicely done and I wish every cookbook had pictures like this. The problem is (which other reviews have stated) is the dishes etc. shown are exclusively made for this guy - the normal person can't just go replicate it. Yes there are plenty of websites where you can purchase the tasting dishes and I have a lot of them, but for me - I would never make my own tiny bread to make a tiny sandwich - it's cost/time prohibative if you are a hostess who wants to spend time at her party rather than in the kitchen whipping this stuff up so it will be hot and tasty.

This book is tiny food porn for me and probably nothing more. The tiny spoon cookie cutters do not exist in the world, I've googled them everywhere. I did find a cool idea to just use pliers and bend an old bell into a spoon shape so you'll need to be creative. It has inspired a couple of more realistic ideas for me but unless you have a staff of 15 prep chefs to help you dice these tiny ideas it just isn't really practical for the regular person - even one wanting to have a tasting party.

I wanted to love this book and I do but unfortunately just for the pictures and a little inspiration - most of the recipes would need to be hot to be delicious and how can you make enough even for a small dinner party without spending 3 days prepping.

If you are practical foodie looking for great easy ideas for a tasting party this probably isn't your book. I think in this case I'm going to have to go TO the bookstore, look through what would work for me and then order.

This was a waste of money for me and it breaks my heart to say that.

I like that Mr Callahan instructs readers to use store-bought available items like pizza dough. Making your own popsicle molds, however is different. I wanted to make the fudgesicles from the book and I read the recipe where it says "Pour the mixture into a mini popsicle mold". My search for "mini popsicle mold" on Amazon.com only came up with ones designed for teething babies, and nothing on the rest of the web looks like it will produce anything like the picture in this book. A friend of mine called his catering company to ask where to get the molds to make mini fudgesicles, and she was told that essentially "we don't share that type of information."
A cookbook is meant to show the reader how to make something, so why would he include 2 recipes (fudgesicle and limoncello popsicle) that call for equipment that one can't get anyhere? Grant Achatz's book doesn't have any recipes that say "add the mix to your volcano vaporizer" or "insert the lamb shanks into a pot with a thermocirculator". But if he did, they would at least be available. Volcano Digital Vaporizer + Solid Valve Set + Travel Case + Bonus Grinder

Bought this for a friend who is a great cook. Saw Peter Callahan on TV and thought this would be a great gift. Bought three books, one for my "Emergency" gift box, one for my friend and one for myself.

Being able to work with Peter on some of his events. we feel back with him with the book.The recipes we used at the functions are the same in the book.It's a pleasure to find recipes that work.We do a lot of scratch cooking but with his tips it can be less time consuming without sacrificing quality. His presentations are impeccable but with some creative thought can be duplicated without some of his "Toys".A great book,cover to cover.A must at any level of the cullinary field.In one word "SUPER".

I got the book a few days ago and I straight fell in love with it! I tried the Lollipops and they're just as awesome as the mini hotdogs. I bought this book to get inspired for a up coming party and I am already amazed how easy it is. The Cranberry-tini is refreshing and tastefully though. I'm looking forward to try more of those recipes during the next days. This book is really recommendable for everyone who loves to take care about the little things of life.
