As a direct result of yesterdays #BrideChat on Twitter (If you havent checked in yet, you must!! Every Thursday at 2pm) I havent been able to get bacon out of my mind! Bacon is basically haunting me right now and I am kinda ok with that really! So I figured something like this is incredibly contagious, so I might as well infect you guys too! Some of these wonderfully savory sweets could be totally perfect in a dessert bar too, making for the perfect bacon food. So without further ado, I present to you, FRIDAY THE 13th…… BACON DAY!
To kick us off, a recent amazing treat that has caught my eye… Candied Bacon with Maple Cream Macarons from the Macaron Parlour!! Sigh, I can not wait to try these lil babies! Fortunately for me, the chefs of these lust worthy bad ass cookies are in NYC! They shall be in mah belly soon!
Surprisingly, I have stayed quite low key about one of my most favorite things…. Cupcakes! I love them so very much, its true. I can literally house so many in one sitting, thank God I run like I do, but I digress… I present… Maple Bacon Cupcakes complete with recipe from MyRecipes.com!
Not for the faint of heart, or possibly those with cholesterol issues…. Bacon & Egg Ice Cream from Fat Duck Restaurant!!
America’s all time favorite cookie takes it up a notice…. Chocolate Chip Cookies with Bacon from Zoe Bakes!
As everyone knows, a spot of the drinky drink always serves nicely in cooking and Bacon Bourbon Pecan Brownies from Food & Wine are surely no exception!
PS-I had planned to make these for our BBQ the day before our wedding, got horribly over stressed with about a billion tasks to do, some friends tried to set up for me and make them, but we quadrupled the recipe and hum, lets just say, the math wasnt quite right…oops! What a waste of bourbon & bacon. I hang my head in shame….
Lastly, something that I simply adore & can totally see this lil idea taking off, Bacon S’mores from Taste Spotting!!!
So, now that I got your mouths watering & you find yourself with an odd unexplainable craving for a peanut butter, honey bacon sandwich, which of these delectable treats do you find the most awesome?! Does anyone have any great bacon recipes? I’d love to add them to this post, so please do send them along!! I really need a bacon butty now….
Of course leave it to my foodie husband to already hand me an update to this post, oddly including some of what I consider yummy, but whatever! The 6 Most Hideous Uses of Bacon
