It all started with this 7 ingredient sour cream cookie recipe. The cookies didn’t taste like cookies at all (not sweet) but more like scones…I will disclose that I added more baking soda than the recipe called for but it doesn’t matter, these ain’t cookies. I decided to dip half of them in brown sugar and kept the other half as “savory scones”.
- Brown sugar
- Maple syrup
- Jalapeños (fresh)
- Cream cheese
- Orange juice (optional)
Marinate slices of smoky bacon with a little chopped onion, chopped jalapeño, brown sugar and maple syrup for 30 mins or more.
In a frying pan on low heat, cook the bacon with the marinade for about 10 minutes, flipping once, until the bacon is crispy and the sugar and maple syrup turn into a gooey caramel. If you need to slow down the caramelization then stir in a few drops of orange juice. Let cool for 2 minutes.
1- Cream cheese on scone.
2- Arugula and chopped fresh jalapeño.
3- Bacon with some of the caramel.
