How to make ice cream without an ice cream maker.
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 refrigerator 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!
