Great post by Larry over at BBQGrail. Not only does he go into the history of MOINK (yep, he started it), he has some other great recipes based on his unique heritage. And of course, they all include bacon (everybody’s favorite, c’mon, admit it).

His menu consisted of:

  • MOINK Balls Appetizers
  • Southern Shrimp & Pea Salad w/cracklings
  • English Bacon & Cheddar Bread
  • Southern Style Smothered Chicken w/bacon and lemon slices
  • Southern Style Sauteed Green Beans w/bacon and shallots
  • Irish Colcannon
  • Southern Red Velvet Cake w/bacon cream cheese frosting
  • Pecan, Brown Sugar, Bacon Ice Cream

I can safely say I haven’t had bacon in cake or ice cream.  Yet.

I love Moink Balls. I did them in the oven as part of a finger-food bash for 70 people. I used frozen meat balls from Costco. Turned out great, not a one left.
My grandparents had a dairy farm in Battleground so I remember it as it was in the 60s. Much has changed since then.

We’ve live here about 11 years, and a lot has changed in that time. I can’t imagine how much has changed since the 60′s…
