Step 1: Brown Butter & Bacon Ice Cream

INGREDIENTS & TOOLS

6 Cups Heavy Cream

4 ½ Cups Half & Half

1 ¼ Cups Sugar

1 Cup Brown Sugar

1 ½ Tbsp Vanilla

1 Package Bacon (approx. 14 slices)

1 Cup unsalted butter (2 sticks)

Ice Cream Maker

BROWN BUTTER

  • Melt the butter in a skillet, stirring occasionally until the butter is brown and smells toasted. Add in ¾ cup of brown sugar. Remove from the heat and let cool.

BACON

  • Cook bacon until crispy. While still hot, sprinkle with remaining brown sugar. Crumble when completely cooled.

ICE CREAM BASE

  • Combine all ingredients EXCEPT bacon into a container and prepare to add it to your ice cream maker.
  • Follow the operating instructions specific to your ice cream maker. If you are looking for an ice cream maker, I use the Nostalgia 4 quart and have been very happy with the results. The operating instructions are simple, and the ice cream comes out creamy.
  • Once the churning process has completed, stir in the crumbled bacon and freeze for at least 2 hours before serving.

Thank you @jessyratfink I just looked up Heston...WOW he is an impressive chef. I enjoy making wine and my friends that do not drink challenged me to make a treat for them. I love breakfast flavors and I’ve always been a little extra so this treat was the perfect opportunity to adventure in the kitchen. LOL
