Recipe Tag: bacon
As you know, we are fans of the pig in our household. Dan and I got on a wild hare about doing something fun and creative with bacon, and in a moment of pure genius, he suggested we do bacon lollipops with a touch of maple flavor. Now, I’ve never made candy before, but it was WAY easier than I thought it would be. Have fun with this recipe — try different extracts and add-ins, and even some food coloring, to customize your flavors. If you decide not to do lollipops, you can easily adapt this into maple bacon brittle: pour the mixture and bacon onto a greased cookie sheet and break apart when cool.
One of the great joys of food is that you can use it to show someone you care about them, mostly figuratively, but sometimes also literally. Here, I shaped thick-cut bacon into cute little hearts and sprinkled them with sweet brown sugar for a fun addition to today’s Valentine’s Day breakfast. Hope you had a great day, honey!
I love breakfast! I love sandwiches! BREAKFAST + SANDWICH = UUH-YES PLEASE!
