9 Bacon Recipes You Never Thought To Try

Since Burger King came out with their bacon sundae, we've been on a bit of a bacon craze to find some really creative recipes.

If you're a bacon lover, I'm sure you've added the salty meat to the usual suspects: burgers, mac 'n' cheese, and scallops, but would you venture far enough to put bacon in your bourbon? What about in your brownies or doughnuts? I searched the Web for some of the most creative recipes I'm sure you haven't tried yet with bacon.

Check out the slide show and let us know if you have any additions to our list!

  • No one can resist a warm apple pie, but would you try one with bacon? SheKnows recently shared this recipe with smoked applewood bacon and maple syrup that we are dying whip up. 

  • The creme de la creme of bacon brownies, Cream & Flutter sells these dark chocolate brownies with a pound of Skoglund bacon for the ultimate bacon lover's dessert.

  • Kitchen Konfidence took s'mores to a whole new level by adding these homemade marshmallows with candied bacon. How can you NOT resist trying this recipe?!

  • Bacon and goat cheese are a clever pair, so of course we love this pasta recipe from Framed Cooks with linguine and sugar snap peas. The creaminess of the cheese mixed with that crunch from the peas and bacon make for an exciting forkful for your taste buds.

  • If your drink of choice is a Bloody Mary, you might want to try this version we found over at Wine Country Cook with bacon infused bourbon. Top with some candied bacon for a sweet addition to your spicy Mary.

  • Hoosier Homemade takes cupcakes to a new level by whipping up a batch full of cheese and beer and topping it with bacon bits. It's the perfect salty, savory treat!

  • Whether you like your doughnuts baked or fried, cake or yeast, these red velvet bad boys will definitely make your bacon loving heart sing. Would you try this recipe from Doolius?

  • Candied bacon wrapped in pretzels sound good enough to eat! Creative Culinary adds some kick to her pretzel rods by adding a cayenne glaze made with chili powder, cayenne pepper and brown sugar. Yum!

  • Everyone loves a healthy handful of caramel corn, but why not spike it with some bacon. This homemade recipe from Food With Legs is made with the addition of peanuts and walnuts for a sweet, salty and crunchy combo.
