It's Better to Travel than Arrive?

Bacon Butter? Yes, Bacon Butter!

You know I'm a big fan of the crew at Domestic Sl*ttery (asterisk instead of "u", so as not to cause offence), they're always up to something new and fabulous.  Today's recipe was for crumpets with bacon butter.  Bacon butter!  Bacon + butter.  Such beautiful words alone, and seriously drool-worthy when used in tandem.

I know there will be a bunch of you wondering why the heck you'd ever make crumpets when you can get them at the supermarket really cheaply, but them I'm guessing you've never lived in a country which is a crumpet free zone.  I live in a crumpet free zone.  And I do love crumpets, so I'm going to give this recipe a try.  It was, however, the words "Bacon Butter" that got me to click on the link, so here's the recipe for that gloriousness:-

Bacon Butter
  • 3 rashers of streaky bacon, diced
  • 125g butter (room temperature probably best)
  1. Fry up the bacon until crispy and let cool
  2. Blitz the butter and the bacon together in your food processor
  3. That's it!
  4. You can use it straight away, or wrap it in cling film and keep it in the fridge
  5. Just think of it in a risotto, or with pasta, the opportunities are endless ...
