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