This recipe for bacon ice cream combines both breakfast and dessert. It's a playful, delicious part of an interesting entree. Instead of pre-sliced bacon, we suggest slab bacon. When you're combining your cream and sugar and bacon over heat, look for a creamier, less-white color. That's when you'll know the flavors have begun to properly infuse. This is an adventurous collection of dishes that combines familiar flavors in interesting ways.
