   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.

    I think so too! I wonder if there is some sort of bacon as a food group petition we could sign. Thank you so much!
