Bacon Butter

To kick off Bacon Week, I thought it would be best to start at the beginning and by beginning I mean breakfast. When I think breakfast, I think bacon. I also think scrambled eggs and english muffins slathered in butter. Plain ol’ fried bacon would probably be a rather boring start to Bacon Week though (delicious, but nothin’ new or exciting), so I whipped out my trusty Taste of Home bacon book and I came across this amazing concoction.

As soon as I read the words bacon butter, I knew I was in trouble. Those are my two favorite foods! Why had I never though to combine them? Because, let’s face it, this really isn’t much of a recipe. It’s more of an idea. A very good, very tasty idea.

Softened butter, fried and crumbled bacon, and the teensiest weensiest little bit of dijon mustard. This stuff will blow your mind.

Don’t forget to email links to your favorite bacon recipes you’ve posted on your own blog! I’ll feature them here at the end of the week. Email karly[at]bunsinmyoven[dot]com by July 1st and feel free in include a picture (sized 625px wide or smaller) and I’ll include that as well!
