And if you put the whole thing on a stick, the universe is a wonderful and happy place. Because, as we all know, any food on sticks is instantly 100x better than before...

And then throw on some chocolate chips, a la Jimmy Dean, and see how things go from there.

It was at a Brazilian Rodizio, so I guess it was on a stick (skewer) until right before serving.

Thai chicken is just so-so. But a chicken satay on a stick, with dipping sauce, mmmm...

Isn't the 'wrapped in bacon' part kind of redundant?

I was always of the belief that the filet minion = beef wrapped in bacon. So that would be beef wrapped in bacon wrapped in bacon.

...this is running into a whole 'put your personal identification number number into the automatic teller machine machine' rant, isn't it?

*shifty eyes*

A filet mignon is a piece of tenderloin -- the addition of the bacon is a particularly American thing. If you order filet mignon in France there's no bacon on it, which is actually the way I prefer it (bacon is tasty but don't screw around with my steak).

Ogden Nash said,

Porcus, nisi falus sum,
Præbet nobis pernam, lardum.
Ceteri dicant pectum amplum;
Ego dico porcum simplum.

The pig, if I am not mistaken,
Supplies us all with ham and bacon.
Let others say his heart is big;
I call it stupid of the pig.

I prefer steak without bacon as well, but sometimes trying something in a different (even if white trash) way is fun.

Nope, the filet mignon is a type of cut, like dasubergeek said, it involves cutting pieces of meat off of the small end of the tenderloin.

It's an incredibly tender cut of beef.

Bah, I have to disagree - a bacon wrapping makes the steak taste like hot dog.

In some cases, I disagree as well. I mostly posted it because the quote seemed funny at the time.
