Bake the Book: Bacon Fat Gingersnaps

Emma Kobolakis Post a comment

Proving that inspiration comes from the most interesting places, this recipe comes to Cookfight from New York Times fashion critic, Cathy Horyn. They are apparently a Swedish-American tradition from her hometown in Ohio. Traditional or not, they are a truly intriguing cookie, with a smoky sweetness that separates them from your standard 'snap. More

Here's a recipe you can share with your canine companion, courtesy of The Dahlia Bakery Cookbook: Sweetness in Seattle. Peanut butter and bacon is a winning combination, and the use of wheat germ and whole wheat flour makes them hearty and satisfying. More

Bake the Book: Bacon Praline

Emma Kobolakis 4 comments

This bacon praline is salty, smoky, sweet and rich. And best of all, didn't you always want to know how to candy bacon? More

Sugar Rush: Flap Jack Cupcake at Baked and Wired, DC

Brian Oh 3 comments

These days, bacon appears a lot of places it probably shouldn't. Not so with the Flap Jack cupcake from Baked and Wired. It's one bacon augmentation that doesn't feel forced. More

Chain Reaction: Burger King's New Bacon Sundae

Will Gordon 18 comments

If you're one of these inveterate bacon apologists, then you don't need this review to tell you whether to try Burger King's new Bacon Sundae. But if you're a bacon appreciator with a legitimately open mind regarding its place on fast-food soft serve, come right this way. More

Mixed Review: The Fresh Market's Maple Bacon Scones

Mixed Review Carrie Vasios Mullins 5 comments

From common courtesy if nothing else, I knew I had to make the mix. So I rolled up my sleeves and quieted my fears that these scones would be of the same ilk as the lame, confused, meaty-sweet treats that gave the bacon trend its death knell. More

After you bake up a batch of these guys, watch out, there's something magical about the combination of peanut butter and bacon in cookie form. More

American Classics: Maple Bacon Long Johns

American Classics Alexandra Penfold Post a comment

Even here in the States there's impressive doughnut variety. I grew up thinking that all stick shaped doughnuts were crullers, but the Serious Eats Doughnut Style Guide introduced me to the "Long John," a yeast-raised, frosted, bar-shaped doughnut that has become a popular vector for breakfast time bacon consumption. More

Bake the Book: Driller Cupcakes

Caroline Russock Post a comment

If you're wondering how to entice a bunch of guys to eat cupcakes, the answer is pretty simple: add bacon. David Arrick, founder of New York's Butch Bakery and author of The Butch Bakery Cookbook, found this out pretty quickly and used this formula to create these Driller Cupcakes, maple cupcakes topped with milk chocolate ganache and candied bacon.

Pie Week: Bacon Mincemeat Pie

Lauren Weisenthal 5 comments

While almost everyone's heard of mincemeat pie, few people actually consume it regularly or even annually. I've crossed paths with various forms of it on more than one occasion, but these encounters were far from memorable. This week, I delved into the world of mince pies, hoping to finally get a taste of what has kept them relevant for so many years. This pie, though, enriched with bacon and bacon fat, is not the traditional mincemeat born in 13th century England. More

Let Them Eat: Date Cake with Candied Bacon and Pecans

Let Them Eat... MarĂ­a del Mar Sacasa 3 comments

All summer long I interrupted serious conversations about bills and travel and getting ready for the move to New York, cooing dreamily, "Wouldn't a date cake with bacon be so ahhh-maaaazing?" I was a girl smitten with a confectionary Prince Charming, this close to doodling "I heart bacon" and "Mrs. Medjool" on my binder. More

Wake and Bake: Spicy Bacon Cheddar Muffins

Wake and Bake Carrie Vasios Mullins 5 comments

The impetus for the recipe was my new found obsession with Black Pig Meat Company bacon. They dry cure the pork with brown sugar for up to 21 days, smoke it for 12 hours, then sell it in sinfully thick strips. I'm eating most of this bacon straight from the pan, but I couldn't resist cooking a few pieces, dicing them up, and tossing them into a fluffy muffin batter along with grated extra sharp cheddar cheese. The result is a cheesy, porky, salty muffin that has a hint of spice. And in case you're wondering, they're the perfect match for a plate of eggs. More

Edible DIY: Chocolate-Covered Bacon Turtles

Lucy Baker 3 comments

Is it possible to improve on the already near-perfect turtle? The combination of crunchy pecans, buttery caramel, and silky chocolate is already about as good as it gets. What could I possibly add to make them even more delicious? Enter bacon. More

Edible DIY: Bacon Chocolate Chip Biscotti

Lucy Baker 2 comments

I pulsed the bacon in the food processor, which helped to infuse every last crumb of biscotti with smoky, meaty flavor. This is the stuff of dreams. The rich chocolate chunks are the perfect complement to the salty, meaty bacon. Each bite yields layer upon layer of mostly-sweet-but-also-savory flavors. More

Edible DIY: Bacon-Bourbon Jam

Lucy Baker 26 comments

What's more appealing than sweet, gooey jam infused with the flavors of brown sugar, maple syrup, coffee, and bacon? I certainly can't think of anything. More

Maple Bacon Biscuit from Huckleberry in Santa Monica, California

Erin Zimmer 6 comments

When I first heard about the maple bacon biscuit ($3.75) at Huckleberry, the Santa Monica bakery and cafe, I figured, it's just the token bacon thing for all the bacon heads. There are plenty of other scrumptious-looking baked goods sitting there behind the glass counter. But I was a sucker, and ordered the darn biscuit—and it was amazing. More

Seattle: Oatmeal and Ice Cream for Breakfast at Molly Moon's

Brad Thomas Parsons 10 comments

When you think about the amount of sugar-soaked calories in a typical serving of pancakes, ice cream for breakfast doesn't sound all that crazy. And when you pair it with steel-cut oatmeal, as they do at Molly Moon's in Seattle, the whole concept seems vaguely healthy. More

Mixed Review: Vosges' Bacon Chocolate Chip Pancakes

Mixed Review Lucy Baker 13 comments

This year Valentine's Day falls on a Sunday. Instead of treating your sweetie to a fancy (and expensive) restaurant dinner, why not prepare a romantic breakfast in bed? My ideal meal would consist of champagne, strawberries, and Vosges's new Mo's Bacon Chocolate Chip Pancakes. At $12, the mix is far more expensive than your average box of Aunt Jemima, but trust me: it's worth every penny. More
