bacon full sunday

I woke up Sunday morning craving biscuits and gravy ... this really isn't an odd occurrence, especially in the south.  I headed to my favorite spot, Zada Jane's, and sat at their bar for a little breakfast for one. 
I should've taken the after picture ... everything was completely gone.  I loved every bite of this meal.  This perfect dish includes: bacon, 2 eggs over easy, sweet potato hash, and a biscuit with a side of herb gravy.  AMAZING!

I spent the rest of the day doing some random shopping.  Seems to be the trend on a weekend when I'm bored.  Anyways I walked away from Target with an ice cream maker.  I had seen 5 Ingredient Fix on Saturday morning and was dying to make one of the recipes from the episode.  

Maple Bacon Ice Cream
  • 1 cup grade B maple syrup
  • 4 cups half-and-half
  • 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar, divided
  • 5 egg yolks
  • 1/2 pound thick-cut bacon (about 6 slices) 
You can find the steps and instructions on the Food Network site.  I basically followed it exactly as it's listed except I halved the recipe.

This was probably in my top 3 best things I've ever made.  The maple flavored ice cream was so dreamy and delicious.  Add some candied bacon to that and you've got quite the masterpiece. Thank you Claire!!
