Okay gang. We've got bacon dusted fries today. What we're going to do, is we're going to take some finely chopped bacon, and we are going to place it into this pepper mill, and what we're going to do, is dust it on our fries. Pretty simple. We've got a spoonful and another spoonful and another one for good measure. Okay. Now, let's get this pepper mill on, get the top ready. Now, it's super easy to get your pepper mill going. What you really should do is finely chop your crisp, crisp, crispy bacon. We want the bacon to be as crispy as possible. We don't want it to jam in the pepper mill at all. We want really small pieces, really crispy pieces, so that the blades can really grind through them. And, let's see what we can accomplish here. I think we're getting some really, really good product right now. Take a look at that. So, what we're going to look to do is do this same motion over our bowl of fries, as you can see, okay? So, let's take some of this, sprinkle it over, and let's keep going. Okay. Now, we're going to give it quick shake. Let's get it onto the plate. And here you have bacon dusted fries. So, so good.
