Trying New Things At The Baker’s Square

Last weekend Lindz, Dave (who was up from Rochester for the day), and I drove around our little corner of the Twin Cities doing some window shopping, and just to keep things interesting, some actual purchases were made.  As everyone knows, shopping makes you hungry, which is why we ended up at Baker’s Square.  I was flipping through the menu trying to figure out if I was going to go with my stand-by order (chicken fried steak) or try something else.  A little red box that said “NEW!” caught my attention.  It was the Nacho Cheeseburger.  A burger with nacho toppings?  What potential bliss could this be?

Much like how the book is always better than the movie, I could do a better nacho burger at home.  But having said that, I would get this guy again.

If you’ve ever been to Baker’s Square, you know that they have quite a selection of pies.  Every month they have a featured pie.  In September, it was definitely something that caught my eye (and taste buds).

Everything is better with bacon.  Well, most things.

The idea of candied bacon on top of french silk pie, on top of chocolate cake, on top of caramel and almonds, on a pie crust seems like a good idea.  Unfortunately, the whole is not equal to the parts.  I think if you took away the cake, it would have been a great improvement.  As far as specific ingredients, the candied bacon was by far the best.
