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.
