Why are you putting bacon in cookies?

The BLT is a variety of sandwich containing Ba...

Seriously, I do not understand this combination.  I’ve been reading blogs about people using bacon in all kinds of recipes.  I don’t get it.  Bacon in cookies, bacon in cupcakes, bacon in brownies…really?  How can this taste good?

I guess I should admit that I’m not a big bacon fan anyhow.  I like bacon in a BLT…about once a summer.  I can tolerate bacon on a pizza, but it’s far from my favorite.  I used to cook dry beans with bacon, but I’ve lost the taste for that.   So I’m having a difficult time imagining how bacon could possibly enhance the taste of sweets.  Yet every week I read another blog about just that, bacon taking the flavor of sweets to new heights.  I just can’t see myself liking that combo though.

So, for any of you out there who have jumped on the bacon band wagon, is this something I should try?  Will I fall to the floor in ecstasy after the first bite of a chocolate/bacon anything?  Hmm…I’m just not feeling it.

  1. As a ‘true’ bacon lover, I’m just not feelin it in cookies, and I don’t much like it on Pizza…. Maybe I’m not the ‘lover’ I thought I was :o(

  2. Chef’s on TV often say “Everything is better with bacon.” I like bacon but I’m not sure about it with everything. Oh, well. To each his own. Now chocolate is another thing altogether. But I think there are limits to what you can put on or in chocolate. I recently heard that people are making S’mores with Reese’s cups. YUM!!!

  3. Please leave my bacon on the BLT, too. Never heard of it on pizza, but I have been seeing more mention of it online on or in everything else. No thanks.

  4. I belong to the Church of the Bacon. We eat it every day religiously! Get it? Hahah….no? Crap. I’ll do better next time, promise!

  5. Like leg warmers and Blossom hats, the world will eventually see sense and bacon with sweet things will be something we look back on and laugh!

    • hey…I happen to like leg warmers and Blossom hats (just kidding, I don’t even know what a Blossom hat is…maybe I do like them and don’t know it), but I think you’re right about bacon in sweets..and the sooner the better…
