As a member of the Good Cook bloggers I took part in the Stuffed Burger competition and received a cast iron grill as part of the stuffed burger kit to create my recipe.  I have always wanted a grill pan so I was excited to be a part of this event.  Now that I have a grill pan I was even more excited when the next event was announced- BACON!  Who doesn’t love bacon, right?  I received a Good Cook Bacon Press to use with my cast iron grill pan to create my bacon masterpiece.  Bacon presses are great to keep bacon flat while cooking so it doesn’t curl up but they are also great for making a panini sandwich, flat iron steak, and lots more.  Keep any eye out for more recipes featuring my grill pan and grill press coming soon.

For my bacon recipe I tried to come up with something different.  I love a good BLT sandwich but that seemed too obvious.   I considered making a breakfast sandwich with bacon but again that didn’t seem creative enough.  That’s when I decided to make two different desserts with bacon- Chocolate Covered Bacon and a Maple Bacon Milkshake.  These recipes aren’t for the faint of heart but a true bacon lover will appreciate the sweet and smokey flavors in these recipes.  Enjoy!

(Makes 2 servings)
4 slices of bacon
1/2 cup brown sugar
4 Tablespoons REAL Maple Syrup
4 cups Vanilla ice cream
1 cup of milk

Spread brown sugar on a plate and dip each piece of bacon in it covering all sides.
Cook bacon in grill pan with grill press.  Keep flipping until done on each side.
NOTE~ The bacon will not get quite as crispy as regular bacon because it will have a candied glaze from the caramelized brown sugar.
Drain on paper towel and set bacon aside to cool.
When bacon is cooled, cut it into small pieces using kitchen shears.
Reserve enough bacon to crumble on the top of each milkshake to garnish.
In blender blend ice cream, milk, maple syrup, and bacon pieces until well blended.
Pour maple syrup down sides of 2 glasses and swirl around for garnish if desired.
Pour milkshake into 2 glasses.
Garnish with reserved bacon crumbles.
Enjoy right away!
