Proud members of the Vast Right Wing Conspiracy. We strongly believe in personal freedom, responsibility, and gun rights. We also believe in the 90/10 theory. That means that 10% of the people have 90% of the talent. Unfortunately, we are not in the 10% category. However, the rest of us are still better than 90% of the politicians.

Yumm, Bacon Brownies

I tried these at a friend's. She didn't have the recipe so I played with trying to make them until I reached what I think is a close approximation of the original.

1/4 lb. bacon, diced
2 tablespoons honey
1/2 c. butter
1/4 c. sugar
1 c. brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 eggs, beaten
1/3 c. unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 c. flour
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp baking powder

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Grease an 8-inch baking pan.
Fry bacon until just crisp, add honey and stir until it stops foaming. Set aside on plate to cool.
Melt butter, stir in sugars, eggs, and vanilla.
Sift flour, cocoa, salt and baking powder into egg mixture, stir.
Fold in bacon and pour into baking dish.  Bake for 25 - 30 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.  Cool, cut, and enjoy.

    Sorry but IMHO this is just WRONG - it's in the same realm as ruining a perfectly good Canadian Bacon (see - still on topic!) pizza by putting pineapple on it. Bacon is a main course dish - chocolate is the basis of the food pyramid and should not be messed up with a primary protein. Leave the bacon where it belongs - with things like eggs and BLTs!

  2. Actually, the bacon and chocolate set each other off nicely. And with this you can get four of the five food groups (sweet, salty, crunchy and chewy) in one dish.
