"Better With Bacon" at SF Cooking
Cheesy Poofs stuffed with bacon and
served with pickled shallots.
I've loved all my cooking classes with SF Cooking, and because I've loved the classes I really wanted to share the experience with my husband, Bob. So I did what any loving wife would do and I signed us up for a class all about bacon. It was great!
"Better With Bacon" was a little more intense than some of the other classes I've taken but it was completely worth it. It was a full class of 14 people and we made: bacon wrapped dates, cheesy bacon poofs, blue cheese wedge salad, roasted pork belly, pork burgers, bacon biscuits with maple butter, bacon jam, and salted caramel pudding with bacon peanut brittle.
Bob made the salted caramel pudding, I made the cheesy poofs, and our teammate LeeAnn made the bacon brittle. We had a great time and at the end of all our cooking we sat down and enjoyed the fruits (pigs) of our labor.
You'll notice I don't have a picture of the bacon wrapped dates, because they were that good.
I'm happy to share the recipes with anyone who would like a copy.
