Brooklyn Bacon Takedown Update: I Will Win Next Year!!!!!

Yes, dear Friends and Readers: I made an Maple-Candied Bacon and Ancho Chili-Spiced Roasted Pecans in Bourbon-Maple Nougat with a touch of Sea Salt and I lost!

But I had a great time and met tons of people. Here’s to next year’s Bacon Takedown, and to beating the pants off my new friends!

(not in an inappropriate way)

Recipe and more forthcoming!


        • I wish! I would love to do a horseradish GruyΓ¨re and ham, but a little birdy told me that there is a disproportionate number of vegetarians that attend the Mac and Cheese event.

          Will have to get creative πŸ™‚

          I’m thinking something insane with ramen and miso…

          • Why not try veggie bacon or sausage? There are some very good ones out there… or make your own. After all, you are a doctor of all bacon. πŸ˜‰

  1. Recipe? Did I hear the word “recipe”? You have to insert a warning at the top of the recipe though. Warning: May cause insatiable need for more nougats.

    The sample that you sent us was so good. We blew thru them in a matter of seconds. Thank goodness you only sent a handful. We would have eaten a boat load. I can’t believe I’m excited about nougats. I had written them off for so long. Those nougats were winners in my book! They converted me!

    • So glad to hear! I will be making another batch soon to photograph for my friend’s website. I’ll have more to send out to people then. All my peeps in Europe missed out because I was a little slow getting organized post-Takedown. I was worried that they wouldn’t arrive in good shape. To be rectified soon!

      But I already know what some people are getting for the holidays πŸ™‚

  2. I love the photos! I can attest that yours was rightfully the winning recipe. πŸ™‚ What are you planning for next year?

    • It tasted AWESOME. Like smooshy clouds of bourbon praline astronaut ice cream studded with bacon!

      It will *likely* be for sale on my friend’s website. More details forthcoming!

  3. I forgot to tell you, my 2 year old son was tossing and turning, he was obviously having a bad dream. He woke up in the middle of the night opened his eyes and yelled, “I want bacon!” I am a good mother.
