Bacon Ice Cream Recipe

A bacon ice cream recipe? Yes. I was skeptical about this - and my husband even more so - but after trying this recipe - we thought it was delicious.

I'd heard about ice cream with bacon in it...and I knew a lot of people love it.

But the flavor just sounded a little too weird for me. So I kept putting making this recipe off and putting it off.

Finally, after 2 years of procrastinating, I got up the courage to try this recipe - much to my husband's disbelief and skepticism.

So I made it - and it was fun to make. Bonus!

Then we tried it. The whole family thought it was delicious. Even my husband commented that if it were healthlier - he would want me to make it all the time!

So don't put off making this recipe - give it a try. It will surprise you!

Please note - my bacon pieces are a little to big in this picture. Make sure to crumble bacon into small bits.

Candy the Bacon

Preheat oven to 400.

Place bacon strips on a baking sheet and sprinkle approximately 2 tsp of brown sugar evenly over each strip of bacon.

Bake in heated oven for 8 minutes. Flip over and bake an additional 8 minutes.

Bacon should be well-done and crispy - the crispy-ness of the bacon will make for a better texture in the ice cream.

Allow bacon to cool completely (you can cool them on a rack).

Once cool, crumble, chop, or cut bacon into VERY SMALL pieces (about the size of bacon bits). The smaller bacon pieces will produce an ice cream with a better texture and flavor.

Ice Cream Base

In a saucepan, melt butter, then stir in milk and brown sugar.

Stir until well combined. Cool.

Stir in heavy whipping cream and vanilla.

Chill in refridgerator until completely cool - about 2 hours.

Churn in ice cream maker about 25-30 minutes or according to manufacturer's instructions.

Add bits of candied bacon to churning ice cream during the last 5 minutes of mixing.

Enjoy!

Candy the Bacon

First, preheat oven to 400.

Place bacon strips in a single layer on a large baking sheet.

Evenly sprinkle each bacon strip with approximately 2 tsp of brown sugar.

Bake in preheated oven for 8 minutes. Turn. Bake an additional 8 minutes.

Make sure that bacon is well-done and crispy - crispy bacon creates a better texture in the ice cream.

Cool bacon completely on a rack.

Crumble or cut cooled bacon into VERY SMALL pieces - they should be similar to bacon bits in size. The smaller bacon pieces produces an ice cream with a better texture and flavor.

Ice Cream Base

In a bowl, beat eggs until they are light and fluffy.

Melt butter in a saucepan, then stir in milk and brown sugar.

Pour about half this heated milk mixture over the beaten eggs.

Beat well to combine and then return back to saucepan.

Continue to cook over low heat until mixture thickens and begins to stick to the back of your spoon.

Allow mixture to cool slightly and then stir in heavy whipping cream and vanilla.

Chill in refridgerator until completely cool - about 3 hours.

Place in ice cream maker and churn about 25-30 minutes or according to manufacturer's instructions.

During the last 5 minutes of mixing, add bits of candied bacon to churning ice cream.

Enjoy your bacon ice cream!
