Maple Bacon Ice Cream - A Guest Post by MiMi #FoodieExtravaganza


   For family dinner this week we had breakfast for dinner.  I made breakfast patty melts.  Family dinners always include dessert.  I wanted to make a dessert that had breakfast flavors but I have been on an ice cream making kick.  It seems homemade ice cream is a family favorite.  That's when I came up with the idea of making a maple and bacon flavored ice cream.  I love these two ingredients together.  I adjusted my vanilla ice cream recipe in a way I thought would be good and was pleased when it worked out.  This makes a nice smooth ice cream.



   Yes, I use raw eggs in my ice cream recipes.  We have access to fresh eggs and we aren't too concerned about getting sick from them.  I've read that there are pasteurized eggs at the grocery store.  That would be a great answer for those who are squeamish about raw eggs.

Maple Bacon Ice Cream

Ingredients:

1/2 lb bacon
2 large eggs
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup maple sugar
2 tsp maple flavor
3 cups heavy cream
1 1/2 cups whole milk or half & half

  1. Cook bacon and crumble
  2. Whisk 2 eggs in mixing bowl until they're light and fluffy, about 2 minutes.
  3. Whisk in the brown sugar, syrup and maple flavor until completely blended.  
  4. Pour in cream and milk and whisk to blend.
  5. Freeze according to your ice cream freezers directions.  Add Bacon when there are a few minutes of churning time left.


Foodie Extravaganza is where we celebrate obscure food holidays or cook and bake together with the same ingredient or theme each month. This month - Camilla of Culinary Adventures with Camilla is hosting - she invited bloggers to come up with creative ice cream creations.

So during this first full month of summer, it's all about ice cream. But that can include gelato, semi-freddo, and even popsicles. Go wild!

We hope you all enjoy our delicious frozen creations this month and come back to see what we bring for you next month.

Posting day is always the first Wednesday of each month. If you are a blogger and would like to join our group and blog along with us, come join our Facebook page Foodie Extravaganza.

      1. How nice of you to include my recipe. I hope lots of people try it and like it as much as we do. Breakfast for dinner seems popular lately and is always a hit. Why not end it with a breakfast- like dessert. Now, I'm off to check out the other recipes shared on this Foodie Extravaganza!

      9. My girls joke that all my recipes start with bacon but I've never added it to ice cream. This must change! Love the maple/bacon combination, Carlee. We can even get pasteurized eggs in Dubai so I'm guessing most stateside stores would have them as well.

        1. Everything is better with bacon! We really had fun trying something a little different. We can get them here too, we just don't keep them stocked in our fridges regularly and aren't great about planning ahead. Sometimes you just need to make ice cream now! ;-)
