This ice cream will change your life! It is excellent! A few thoughts on the recipe...
I am not sure why the base needs to be brought up to 170 degrees when there aren't any eggs.
The paste was hard to spread on the bacon. Next time I plan to sprinkle the brown sugar, then drizzle with the syrup.
I added extra Maple Extract to the base to up the maple flavor.
Does it need to be real cream/milk? I have a child who can't handle this much dairy. Could we sub at least part of it with another milk product? Maybe use a little bit of full cream and then the rest an almond milk, etc? Will it still turn to soft serve (albeit less creamy)?
Wow, wow, wow! This is like my favorite breakfast in ice cream form! Love the creamy cold maple flavor paired with the chewy, sweet and salty bacon. I doubled the maple flavoring, but otherwise followed the recipe. I agree that it was a little difficult to spread the sugar paste on the bacon and think that sprinkling the sugar and drizzling the syrup over the bacon would work better. My guess as to why the cream mixture is heated is to help dissolve the sugar. To prevent my smoke alarms from going off, I changed the foil underneath each time I turned the bacon over, so the drippings wouldn't continue to burn. If you are fan of bacon and the sweet and salty combo, this recipe is for you
This recipe is AWESOME!! Who would have thought of this. I loved it.
