International Bacon Day!

By | September 1, 2013

Last Saturday morning, my Facebook feed erupted with important news – it was International Bacon Day!  I’m never one to pass up a food-related holiday, so I pulled a Costco pack of bacon out of the fridge and got busy.

For dinner, we had veggie burgers with bacon (affectionately called “Hippie Nightmares” around here), but the real star of the show was much more extravagant.

I planned to make these little gems: bacon cups.  But none of this salad nonsense – we would eat them for dessert with a scoop of homemade cinnamon ice cream.

I had made them once before, with great success, so I figured I knew what I was doing. I didn’t need to look up the directions, right?

Wrong.  Some of them looked okay, but they were completely stuck to the muffin tin.  We tried prying them off with a butter knife, but they just crumbled.

But as long as you don’t care about presentation, it makes no difference.  Bacon-topped cinnamon ice cream is basically the most delicious thing ever, no matter what it looks like.  We’ll call it a win.
