I know that bacon in sweet dishes has been trendy for a while, and is perhaps overdone to the point of falling out of favour, but I just had my first experience tonight. OMG! I didn't think I liked it at first bite, but then I couldn't stop. I needed to remove myself from the kitchen to stay away!
I topped thick cut bacon with a mixture of brown sugar, ground pecans, maple syrup and cayenne (thank you Ina garten) and baked it until crispy. Wow! Just felt the need to share..,,,
