Arcane Phrase Of The Week: Culinary Edition

As a New Orleanian, I spend a lot of time thinking and talking about food. Every conversation here will eventually turn to food, glorious food. Growing up in a Greek family was similar, which is one reason I assimilated here so rapidly. That's why I think this Victorian term for OTT extravagance should be revived:

Butter upon bacon

Usage: I think that putting glitter on that beaded shirt is a bit too butter upon bacon.

This one is a potential winner, I can see it sweeping the foodie scene. Hopefully, the dread Guy Fieri won't pick it up but you gotta take the bitter with the sweet sometimes.

    If butter on bacon is over the top, what would butter on deep fried bacon be?
