Bacon Breakfast Cookies

bacon breakfast cookiesI never have time for breakfast before I head in to work in the morning, but after seeing these things I may have to make a batch the night before. Over at Cookin’ in the ‘Cuse, they have a delicious recipe for breakfast cookies that contains bacon of course. The cookies resemble an oatmeal raisin cookie, but when you bite into them you are in for much more than just raisins!

  • 1/2 lb. bacon
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup of flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 cups of multi-grain flakes or corn flakes
  • 1/2 cup raisins

And this is how you make it according to “Cookin’ in the ‘Cuse

“Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Cook bacon until very crisp, drain well and break into 1/2 inch pieces.  Beat together butter and sugar till light and fluffy.  Beat in egg.  Combine flour and baking soda; stir into butter mixture.  Stir in bacon, mult-grain flakes and raisins.

Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheet.  Space 2 inches apart.  Bake for 15-18 minutes.  Remove to rack to cool–about 2 minutes, then remove from rack. ”

These sound absolutely delicious and I’m getting hungry just thinking about them. If anyone out there has a chance to make these, feel free to leave your comments below and let us know what you think! And don’t forget to check out Cookin’ in the ‘Cuse for other great recipes and food talk!

    I’ve made these a few times, they have a unique and great flavor which is even better if they are warmed. I use corn flakes and do not over-cook the bacon, which I crumble into small pieces. Next batch I may replace raisins with cranberries…

    I made these and am thoroughly enjoying them, however I did not follow the recipe. I would like to share the changes with you that I made.

    I cut the bacon into lardons (julienne strips) before I cooked them, then cooked slowly to render all fat.

    I substituted the butter for the rendered bacon fat, which came to exactly 1/2 a cup.

    I cut the sugar down to 1/4 cup, because I substituted the cereal flakes for raisin bran ( why purchase two products ;both cereal and raisins) then threw in a handful of dried cranberries.

    The baking instructions were spot on, even for my oven, I baked at 350 for 7 1/2 minutes then turned pan and baked another 7 1/2 mins. Perfect!

    Thank you for a fun and delightful change to the dilemma “What’s for breakfast?”
