BAM Brownies {for Bacon S'mores}


When the editors of Bacon S'mores put out a call for recipes to their writers, I took the challenge. Demi wrote: The recipe has to be for some variant on the idea "bacon s'mores." Okay.

Here we go...

BAM Brownies. BAM = Bacon + Aleppo pepper + Marshmallow

This makes a 9"x13" pan full of chocolatey, gooey, deliciousness.

Soft butter, for greasing the pan
6 large eggs
2 C organic granulated sugar
1 t ground Aleppo pepper
12 oz melted butter
2 C unsweetened cocoa
2 t pure vanilla extract
1 C white whole wheat flour
1/4 C organic, raw cacao nibs
4 T maple syrup marshmallows, unset - still in cream state
1/4 C  oven-crisped bacon, chopped

Preheat the oven to 300 degrees F. Butter an 9"x13" baking pan. In a large mixing bowl add all ingredients, except flour, nibs, bacon, and marshmallows, and mix to combine. Add the flour and nibs; stir till just  moistened.

Pour the batter into a greased and floured pan. Spoon dollops of the marshmallow cream onto the top and swirl to marble. Sprinkle chopped bacon over the top and bake for 45-50 minutes.

Check for doneness with a toothpick method. When it's done, remove to a rack to cool. Resist the temptation to cut into it until it's mostly cool.

This month the French Winophiles group is looking at affordable wines from Burgundy.  Host Cindy of Grape Experiences wrote: "Burgundy, or Bourgogne, is known for its wines of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir... as well as Aligote, Gamay, Sauvignon, César, Pinot Beurot, Sacy, Melon in lesser quantities. Many of the well-known wines are quite expensive, but there are plenty of values to be found."

Quick Pickled Red Onions and Radishes

If you've been reading my blog for even a short amount of time, you probably know how much I love to pickle things. I was just telling a friend you can pickle - with vinegar - or you can ferment - with salt - for similar delicious effect. The latter has digestive benefits and I love to do that, but when I need that pop of sour flavor quickly, I whip up quick pickles that are ready in as little as a day or two. I've Pickled Blueberries , Pickled Asparagus , Pickled Cranberries , Pickled Pumpkin , and even Pickled Chard Stems ! This I did last night for an upcoming recipe challenge that requires I include radishes. Ummmm...of course I'm pickling them!
