The Bacon Grease food truck roundup scheduled for Jan. 29 was postponed to Feb. 5 because of cold weather. My House NOLA (www.myhousenola.com) organizes roundups in different neighborhoods. Bacon-inspired dishes at this event include Foodie Call's Brie L.T. with bacon, fig mustard, brie, seared tomato and arugula on ciabatta, The NOLA Truck's blackened shrimp po-boy with candied bacon, cheese and caramelized onions, Crepes a la Cart's bacon-Caprese crepes, and Boo Koo BBQ & Burgers' chicken-fried bacon, deep-fried bacon and truffle macaroni and cheese balls and bacon brownies.
"I know that a lot of the food truck members have really creative minds and they love working on innovative menu concepts but they don't always get a chance," says My House NOLA's founder/CEO Barrie Schwartz. "Giving them a theme lets them delve into new menu items that they wouldn't have had the opportunity to showcase otherwise."
Bacon Grease takes place at Finn McCool's Irish Pub (3701 Banks St. 504-486-9080; www.finnmccools.com) from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. Wednesday.
