There's bacon chocolate, bacon sundaes, bacon marmalade. Why not bacon pie? Or to be specific, bacon pie crust.
Last night I made quiche with my current new recipe. I was about to mix up the pie crust in the food processor. (Ernest would be appalled because he is an old-school pastry blender man but he is not here right now.) There was the bacon sitting there, so I threw a few pieces in and pulverized them with the flour, then proceeded as usual.
It was a dee-licious masterpiece. There was not a speck of crust leftover and you know how people usually leave some. Total cholesterol bomb, but what the heck.
Not to worry, though. It was balanced by a salad entirely from my garden...lettuce, arugula, radishes and cherry tomatoes.
