Bacony Breakfast Cupcake

Recipe courtesy Aaron McCargo Jr.
Prep Time: 15 min Inactive Prep Time: 10 min Cook Time: 17 min Level:
Easy Serves:12 cupcakes

Canola oil spray
6 thick-cut slices good quality bacon
3 tablespoons chopped fresh chives
4 cups prepared pancake batter
8 ounces mascarpone
1 cup confectioners' sugar
2 tablespoons maple syrup
Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F. Prepare a cupcake pan with canola oil spray.

Prepare a broiler pan and place the bacon on the pan. Cook until well crisped, about 6 minutes. Remove from the oven and reserve 1 tablespoon bacon drippings.

Reduce the heat to 350 degrees F. Mix the chives into the pancake batter and pour into the cupcake tins so that they are 3/4 full. Bake for 12 minutes.

Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, add the mascarpone, confectioners' sugar, maple syrup and the reserved bacon drippings. Stir well to combine and set aside. Crumble the cooked bacon and set aside.

Remove the cupcakes from the oven and let cool on a cooling rack, about 10 minutes. Frost each cupcake with the bacon icing and sprinkle with the crumbled bacon.

Can the fresh chives be replaced with something like chocolate chips?

And this from a guy that would eat a grub as a matter of wilderness survival. So disingenuous.

My whole problem is with the Bacon frosting. That would be like tuna flavored syrup now in a survival situation I would welcome the Bacon flavored frosting to spread on my grubs.

See? My point exactly. Grubs are like chips with the dip on the inside. You'll eat that but not bacon stuff, thingies. That ain't right.

Actually I think of grubs as natures Twinkies. Ya know soft with a cream filling.

04-09-2011, 09:50 PM
That, sir, is just utter sacrilege. Twinkies are the food of the gods. They should never be compared to something as lowly as a grub. You had better be careful. Poseidon may pi....tinkle on your plans for upsetting him.

Maybe poseidon would like a Twinkies slathered in Bacon frosting as a peace offering.

Now your talking. Just don't wear a Hong. He can be funny about stuff like that at times. Don't ask me how I know.

04-09-2011, 10:41 PM
Ummm Rick why would you wear a Hong?

04-09-2011, 10:41 PM
And was it a Mr or a miss Hong?

When you are trying to impress goddesses you do what you can with what you've got. You know? It was actually a Minister of Science Hong. Whole 'nother level.
