Inspired by watching an episode of Good Eats about making ice cream and slight inebriation, my brother, friends and I decided to make some ice cream using our favorite meaty meat - BACON. Now, I ain’t no fancy city chef, but I do know my way around bacon.

The recipe is pretty simple. (we were too excited about making the ice cream to take a pre-shot with all the ingredients laid out)


  • Prep: ~30 mins.
  • Cook: 1 - 2 hrs.
  • Serves: 4

Filed Under


  • 3 cups of heavy cream
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 1/4 cups firmly packed dark brown sugar
  • 4 egg yolks
  • 1 pound bacon cooked until very crisp and finely chopped

Step 1

Combine cream, milk, and sugar in saucepan and cook over medium-high heat until hot and the sugar is completely dissolved, stirring occasionally.


Step 2

While the milk, cream, and sugar are having their fun, go ahead and cook up the bacon if you'd like. Yum.


Step 3

Crack the eggs and capture the yolks.


Step 4

Beat them in a small bowl until smooth.


Step 5

Slowly whisk in 1 cup of the hot cream-milk from step one, tempering the eggs.


Step 6

Return the yolk mixture to the saucepan, beating constantly.


Step 7

Cook over medium heat, stirring continuously, until the mixture coats the back of a wooden spoon. Do not let it boil.


Step 8

Pour mixture into a bowl and let it cool completely (toss in the fridge). Go watch TV or see a movie, this takes a while.


Step 9

Add the bacon to the bowl and mix in.


Step 10

Pour the mixture into your ice cream maker and follow the instructions for your model.


Step 11

Now lets serve up some yummy bacon ice cream - FOR BREAKFAST! I garnished mine with maple syrup. YUM-O! This may go great as a waffle topping. I'd make it again, but I think soft serve would be better for it. I'd suggest anyone else who tries it to leave it longer in the freezer.
