Brown Sugar Bacon

“I’m never gonna get used to the 31st century. Caffeinated bacon? Baconated grapefruit? ADMIRAL Crunch?”
Fry, Futurama

Bacon is showing up in all kinds of things any more. When there's bacon beer I'll probably believe the trend has run it's course. I still experiment a bit, and with about 7 hours of sleep in three days, the concept of dinner was rather mundane. It could be breakfast, as I'm not sure WHAT time zone or century my body clock is in. At least I'm home.

But not just any breakfast. Bacon sprinkled with brown sugar and then baked til crispy and then stired into batter? Not just any waffle batter, but one that bakes up extra light and crispy. Did I mention there was maple syrup and leftover strawberries?

I'm not sure, but I think this is illegal in 14 states.


  1. Bacon Beer is already here!

  2. If the brown sugar bacon waffles are accompanied by lots of strong coffee, then all is right with the world. Or at least in the 36 states where such perfection is legal.

    Welcome home.

  3. Oh great googly moogly that looks good! ...and with bacon...mmmm.

    There is a website on how to make bacon beer but the language they use is offensive so...inquiring minds might use Google.

    WV: veramint (faith that leaves a wintergreen aftertaste)

  4. Your special waffles with ... as the good Reverend says ... coffee. Crisp fall day, sunlight breaking through the overnight mist to burn off the dew?

    Are we approaching perfection with your breakfast, Brigid?

    Silly question.


    wv = proons. Either a moving fruit or seafood from some New England element.

  5. I'm not sure, but I think this is illegal in 14 states.

    And if it isn't, it probably oughta be.

    Stomach's note to self. Do not read Brigid's blog before eating.

  6. Brown Sugar Bacon sounds pretty good to me.

  7. They are illegal in Massachusetts if equipped with a shoulder thing that goes up or a pistol grip. Looks delicious.

  8. Mmmm. That's the ticket.

  9. It's not illegal in Massachusetts unless you have a pre-ban, high-capacity waffle iron.

    Man, that looks good.

  10. When I was in college in Chicago, I went to a restaurant that specialized in import brews and tried a German Rauchbier; the can said it had been smoked over a hickory fire.

    Tasted like bacon grease.

    That was over 20 years ago, so all y'all are late for the party! ;-)

  11. Darn it now I have to go make waffles, and it is 9 pm here.

  12. Just remember: Breakfast, its not just for lunch anymore!


  13. Wow...and I thought the Bacon Explosion was fun! This looks positively sinful, so of course, I must try it...

    Thanks for the inspiration!

  14. Never heard of the brown sugar thing. Fortunately I have all the ingredients and since I always cook a big breakfast on weekends, brown sugar experiment to follow. Brigid, I've been reading a blog for awhile you might enjoy. Retired Navy fighter pilot, great writing. Hope you have some down time this weekend. steve

  15. WOW! Bacon would make....well, anything taste better. I'm sure glad Arizona hasn't made this dish illegal. This has to be in my top ten of your recipes, Brigid.

  16. My God! That looks wonderful. Note to self: Buy waffle iron immediately!

  17. Lady Brigid,
    You just keep on getting better and better... especially your posts and cooking. How does it feel to be so close to perfect? Never had a woman I never met move my heart and hunger as much as you! Thanks!!

  18. I felt my arteries harden reading that! "What do want to do? Live forever?" Must try that soon.

  19. Can this be made with the tactical bacon shown on the sidebar? ;-)
