Yes. It’s true. They’re real. And good. I made these for Kevin’s ‘man meat meat’ (a post in itself …. coming soon). They were strange. And tasty. Salty and sweet. Chocolate-y and bacon-y. A dessert with meat.

It’s not a new idea. I saw this place on the Food Network or the Travel Channel (my two favorite channels) called VooDoo Doughnut it Portland Oregon. (Flickr pics of bacon doughnuts here. ) (BTW – I think I’d love Portland!! – Have you seen Portlandia?? —- frickin‘ hilarious!!!) Anyway – They’ve been making maple bacon doughnuts for years!
We don’t eat very much bacon around here at all. But my husband adores it. (Actually I do too!) I know it’s terrible for you. Those pesky delicious swine with all the sodium and cancer causing nitrates. I occasionally splurge and get expensive nitrate-free bacon to make BLTs for dinner. But, here I went for actual normal bacon.
I think they would be great for Father’s day. A novelty cookie. All the men I know L.O.V.E. bacon. Maybe yours do too! I pretty much used this recipe. They’re fun and a great conversation starter!
You should make some for the men in your life.
I also decided to added some maple glaze to the top and stuck a piece of cooked bacon in it…..to let the unsuspecting consumer know what they were getting themselves into. To make the glaze…I just mixed together powdered sugar and pure maple syrup until it looked like I could just pour it.
