Coffee and Bacon
There’s nothing better than waking up on a Sunday morning to the smell of bacon, then enjoying a steaming heap of the greasy goodness with a hot cup of coffee on the side.
However, we all have busy lives, and we can’t always commit the time and energy necessary to alternate between stuffing bacon in our faces and sipping coffee. Which is why I have invented a time-saving and delicious way to enjoy your whole breakfast in one mug: bacon coffee. You, too, can enjoy this groundbreaking innovation; simply follow these steps:
1. Make some bacon.
2. Add cream and sweetener. Always sweetener. Think of your heart.
3. Add coffee.
This project was a little daunting at first. The world of meat-based coffee additives is, as far as we could tell, completely unexplored. It could have turned out disgusting. But to be honest, it wasn’t. The bacon added a subtle smokey flavour that did not clash at all with the dark roasted coffee. The bacon grease left a beautiful sparkly film on top and gave the coffee a creamier texture than usual.
At the bottom of the mug is a beautiful puddle of bacon-wrapped coffee.
The only problem is that you’re left with a large chunk of bacon sitting there, which makes it hard to drink the last bit. And what do you do with the bacon? While bacon flavoured coffee is quite delicious, coffee flavoured bacon is bland at best. I will continue to research different ways of combining coffee with bacon, such as adding bacon bits in with the coffee grounds, and blended bacon-coffee smoothies, and report back.
