I do a good Southern-style bread pudding with candied bacon and a maple-bacon cream sauce. It’s a great challah and French bread-based pudding that manages to stay on the good side of sweet while capitalizing on the amazing fusion of real maple and smoky bacon flavors. I presented it at the Chicago Bacon Throwdown last year and snagged the judges’ award for Best Sweet Recipe. I’ve attached a picture of me making a stupid face whilst serving it. I’ve also written a post about it if you’d like to see it in greater depth (http://manbque.com/2011/10/bacon-bread-pudding-food-for-champions/).
