We love chocolate chip cookies. We love bacon. So why not mix the two… right?
We started by cooking the bacon slowly on our Green Mountain Grill for that wonderful smokey flavor (350°F for 10-12 minutes). Then we chopped it up and added it to our favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe and baked the cookies right on the grill! The result? Delicious. Sweet & salty, with a just hint of smoke from the bacon.
Cooking these on the grill added no smoke flavor. You are at such a high temperature for a short amount of time that it doesn’t flavor the cookies. The bacon adds just enough so we don’t want any additional smoke from the grill. The grill gives these cookies a perfectly crisp bottom while leaving the top soft and melty.
Give this recipe a try and come back to tell us what you think!
