Imagine a sweet buttery croissant…
Topped with smokey streaky bacon….
Topped with brown sugar AND maple syrup AND Honey Jack Daniels AND Traeger coffee rub… ???
I give you Jack’s Crack, or Meat Shack Bacon Crack if you will.
Yes ladies and gentleman, this doughy little number is my maiden voyage into baked goods and although it may be a little rough around the edges, it turned out pretty damn gooood. And if you don’t believe me, let’s ask Chuck…
What you need:
Ready made croissant dough
Streaky bacon, about 400g or enough to top your sheet of dough
About 150g Brown Sugar
A good glug of maple syrup
The mixture of bacon and sweet dishes often turns heads at our events not everyone gets it, until they try it, but hell as I said, croissant, maple, brown sugar AND bacon? what’s not to like.
The beauty of serving these up mid Q is what’s known as the “sweet spot”. A short sweet break after a serving of salty barbecued foods awakens the taste buds. Encourage the guests to go for a second helping of savoury meat after this break brings out even more of the salty tender flavour the second time round.
Watch out Great British Bake Off… I think I’m a serious contender for your next round…
