Photo du Jour - Bacon Pralines


Edible crack, that's what this is. And I'm hooked.

Bacon Pralines are the most tempting, delicious mélange of smoky-salty and sugary sweet flavors. It is dangerous, addictive stuff. And they're selling it down on the corner, just a block away from my "home" in New Orleans.

I plan on bringing at least a kilo back to France with me. Hope I don't get stopped by Customs.


Another treat from Cochon Butcher. Pin It

Can we order this? Can you get us the recipe if we can't? Maybe trade them cheese for bacon sugar...

Not sure if you can order some or not, but give them a call and maybe you can. :)
I found this recipe, which I've never made so cannot compare to the ones from Cochon Butcher. Please let me know if you try making some.

Is it up on your site?

Crack dealers often raise their prices after the first "taste",this is no exception.

It seems to have happened in this case. My friends are coming over in June and I think I'll ask them to bring me a "fix."

You should head over there and try some. You won't be sorry!

No I'm not ordering this but trying to make this tomorrow. I think I'll try to shoot it, but I don't think it will be as pretty as your picture!

Let me know how it turns out!

As a frustrated fan of Cochon Butcher living in California, I can tell you that you can't order Bacon Pralines from them. I think we should start a petition!

Gives you a great reason to come to New Orleans. :)
