10 Sizzling Bacon Recipes with a Sweet Twist
Bacon, bacon, bacon.
I’ve never met a person who didn’t have a taste for bacon. (Of course with the exception of my vegetarian and vegan friends.) Though I have met a surprising number of people who love a good savory and sweet bacon combination. So here are ten sizzling bacon recipes with a sweet twist.
1. Candied Bacon
The nutty sweet approach to this candied bacon is pure perfection. I’d pop these like Skittles any day.
2. Bourbon Bacon Brittle
You had me at bourbon. And then bacon. And then brittle. This bourbon bacon brittle is my jam.
3. Blackberry Bacon Grilled Cheese
I’ve always been a big fan of jams or jellies on grilled cheese. The marriage of sweet, savory and spicy in this blackberry bacon grilled cheese has me drooling as I type. Definitely a “must try”.
4. Candied Bacon Chocolate Chip Cookies
Excuse me while I go make a thousand dozen of these candied bacon chocolate chip cookies. ::slurps drool again::
5. Maple Bacon Donuts
What would a list of sweet bacon recipes be without the now iconic maple bacon donut? It’d be nothing. That’s what.
