Let me start by saying, I am not a baker. In fact, I'm not much of a cook, although my kids say I make the best macaroni and cheese EVER (thank you, Kraft Foods for your neon orange simulated cheese powder). I do, however, love to watch cooking and travel shows and at least act like I know what the heck those people are doing.
Yesterday, I caught some show on Travel Channel that was everything bacon. Now, some folks don't like pigs. Sure, they may be slovenly little suckers, but they taste divine. PIG. IS. GOOD. One restaurant, Slater's 50/50 in Anaheim, California, featured all sorts of bacony goodness: burgers, cocktails and...be still my heart...a bacon brownie. Spare me the retching and gagging routine, please. To channel my Mom: Have you tried them yet? Well, then, how can you know whether you like 'em or not?
They looked phenomenal and I thought 'Self, even YOU can make those'. So, I did.
Crumble up the cooked piggy into the batter and bake.
At this point, my camera literally died (not even new batteries could help) so I don't have a picture of the pan. But let me just say...I love chocolate. I love bacon. And damn if these brownies don't ROCK!!
