Bacon is back


Courtesy of 410 Degrees

Bacon jam. Chocolate bars with bacon bits. Bacon gum. Yep, you've heard it before: Bacon is back. On a recent visit to the farmer's market in San Diego, I ate my most recent bacon-studded treat: pancakes-and-bacon cookies. The smoky profile of bacon against the sweetness of maple is delicious, and not in an off-putting, ironic sort of way. (If you like your pancakes stacked with bacon and smothered in maple syrup, the pairing is a no-brainer.) It would be a surprising and scrumptious addition to a dessert table or wedding favor for a brunch-time reception (if you want, company owner Adam Koven will work with you on customizing the packaging). For those still wary of meat in their sweets, 410 Degrees also offers a line of signature cookies that ranges from the conventional (maple-oatmeal and PB Overload) to the more daring (lemon-basil and cinnamon roll), and additionally offers the option to create your own Frankencookie. (Coconut cookie dough with dried pineapple chunks and Caramelo candy bits is on my wish list of combinations to try—might be that tropical honeymoon I'm dreaming about right now). All available online for $24 per dozen, plus shipping and handling. —Joyce Bautista, BRIDES Features Department
