The Husband loves sweets. And bacon. And cheese.
As a special treat, I thought I would make him some sweet, gooey brownies loaded with savory, salty bacon. A combination that would be certain to please.
I was not mistaken.
Mix your brownie ingredients and pour half the batter into a prepared pan. Sprinkle your crispy, crumbly bacon over the mixture and then cover with the remaining batter. Bake, cool, cut and enjoy.
Now, how to incorporate The Husband's third love, cheese. Maybe a swirl of cream cheese? I'll be trying that next!
Here's the recipe:
1/2 C vegetable oil
1 1/2 C sugar
2 t vanilla
1/2 t baking soda
2/3 C cocoa powder
1/2 t salt
1 C flour
2 t instant coffee/espresso granules
4-8 strips cooked, crumbled, crispy bacon
Preheat oven to 350℉. Prepare an 8x11" baking dish by lightly coating with cooking spray.
In a mixing bowl, combine oil and sugar. Stir until incorporated. Next, add your egg and vanilla, mixing until just blended.
In another bowl, sift together your baking soda, cocoa powder, salt and flour. Add your coffee granules and stir to incorporate.
Stir your wet and dry ingredients together then pour half of your brownie mixture into your prepared pan. Sprinkle your bacon onto the brownie mixture, then cover bacon with remaining batter.
