And upon perusing this amazingly fantastic book, I discovered a recipe that I felt I was compelled to try. One bacon recipe out of the hundreds that called out to me as the first item that must be concocted from the plethora of deliciously tempting options. But this siren recipe was not for me. No, it summoned me to create this unique treat for none other than my friend Thoughtsy.
You see, I had plans to meet her for dinner this past week. And although the date kept getting moved around and rescheduled, we somehow finally got our shit together enough to actually make it happen. So, having discovered this recipe in the book earlier, and wanting to try to make it for Thoughtsy, I figured this would be the perfect time to try it out. Not to mention that it looked super easy and only had four ingredients. Score!!
I will admit, though, that finding fig jam wasn’t the easiest task. Luckily, my supermarket actually had some, but it was Fig preserves, so I was going über fancy. The rest of the stuff was cake. (Mmmm, cake).
So, they kinda look like Pop Tarts, no? I mean, sort of more like pastries, but what do you expect from 4 ingredients. This is what they looked like inside:
Well, I guess you are wondering how they tasted now, aren’t you? Jeesh, you are so demanding! Well, I will say this. They weren’t bad. They weren’t necessarily good, but not horrible. I wouldn’t particularly say they tasted like Pop Tarts, though. More of a savory fig tart. Although, you can really taste the bacon (maybe because I used an approximate fuckton of it).
But, if you are a fan of both figs and bacon, you just might enjoy this. The recipe is above, so if you are feeling it, go for it!
Oh, and if you want to know if Thoughtsy liked them . . .
. . . well, she at least pretended to like them. But even if she didn’t end up enjoying them, I also provided a back up that I know she loves. You can’t go wrong with Red Velvet Pop Tarts. And lest you think I escaped gifting, Thoughtsy brought a couple of things for me as well:
We’ve come to discover that she always brings me some kind of flavored booze, and I always bring her some sort of Pop Tarts. It’s our thing. And it works for us, apparently. We’re totally ok with that.
