Maple Bacon Frozen Custard

Bacon and eggs is a staple in every bacon enthusiast’s diet. Bacon and eggs for breakfast, eggs and bacon for lunch, and maybe these bacon and egg cups for dinner if we haven’t met our quota for fanciness yet that day. But there’s something missing here. Any true bacon enthusiast can’t be expected to wait until breakfast again to have more bacon and eggs! This is a serious problem. And, like most serious problems, you can solve it by eating desserts until it goes away. It’s time for some bacony goodness, in the form of maple bacon frozen custard.

Ingredients

  • 4 strips bacon
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup
  • 1 1/4 tablespoons water
  • 6 eggs
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons honey
  • 1/4 teaspoons salt
  • 2 cups milk
  • 2 cups heavy whipping cream
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla
  • Small saucepan
  • Medium saucepan
  • Cookie sheet covered with wax paper
  • Large bowl of ice water

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 °F.
  2. Place bacon in oven until crispy, about 15-20 minutes. Drain the grease (and use for later) and chop bacon into fine bits.
  3. Place maple syrup, brown sugar, and water in small saucepan and heat until simmering.
  4. Add bacon to saucepan, stir thoroughly, then remove from heat.
  5. Immediately pour onto cookie sheet, making sure to spread it until even thickness.
  6. Cool for 20-30 minutes, then break up into pieces.
  7. Beat eggs, sugar, honey, and salt in medium saucepan until well blended and stir in milk.
  8. Cook over low heat, stirring constantly, for about 15 minutes. Do not allow to boil.
  9. Immediately remove from heat, and set pan in large dish of ice water. If you waited until now to get the ice water around, oops. Read ahead next time.
  10. Stir occasionally and very gently for a few minutes to allow custard to cool faster.
  11. Press plastic wrap onto the surface of the custard and chill in the refrigerator for at least an hour.
  12. Pour the custard, the whipping cream, and the vanilla into a large (1 gallon or more) deep baking dish or plastic bowl and add in bacon bits.
  13. Place in freezer for thirty minutes or until it starts to freeze at the edges.
  14. Stir vigorously with a wire whisk.
  15. Repeat steps 7 and 8 until it becomes too thick to stir, up to three hours total.
  16. Eat with a spoon and try to forget about your last breakup. Maybe some bacon bowls if it was a long relationship and you need the extra calories for sobbing. Do not share.
