...w/ a Side of Bacon

So I'm in this Bible study....

We meet every Wednesday morning. We study the Bible. We eat bacon.

I don't know exactly how it happened, but we all came together based on our shared love of Jesus Christ and one of his greatest creations....pork fat.

We've sort of become obsessed with bacon. We've made Bacon Brownies (more than once), Bacon Buttercream Frosting, Chocolate Bacon Cupcakes, Peanut Butter Bacon Cookies and Chocolate Bacon Cookies. There are rumors of Bacon laced Rice Krispie Treats in our future too.

If you don't believe me when I say that we are serious about our bacon just search for our group on Facebook. You'll find us under BS....Bible Study with a Side of Bacon. I'm not even kidding.

So when this month's Daring Baker's Challenge was a Meringue Coffeecake to be made with our own choice of fillings what else could I choose but bacon?

Yep. This is my Bacon Pecan Coffeecake and it is d-e-l-i-c-i-o-u-s if I do say so myself. The meringue gushing out of the edges looks a little weird, I'll admit, but it doesn't hurt the taste any.

The recipe was super easy and very versatile. I will say that it is much better fresh out of the oven than the next day but a quick nuke in the microwave and it revives pretty well. If you'd like to make your own pork flavored pastry you can find the recipe at

If nothing else just go check out the cool pics of all the different coffeecakes that everyone else made this month. And BS girls....I'll see you Wed. I'll be the one with the bacon. :)

I wanna go to your bible study. Everything is better with bacon (although I am not sure about rice krispie treats.

I'd have to try it to believe it. :-)

By the way, I think Brian could have a future as a hand model. That's one convincing thumbs-up.

Funny story....

It's not actually Brian's thumb. Stephanie+5 found this pic in Google Images to be the image for our Facebook group. When I searched it for to add to this post I found the blog it came from. It is actually a completely anti-Christian blog that was really horrible. He took this picture because he had used the Bible to soak up the grease from his bacon!!!

Ironic isn't it that we would now be using his picture to promote our Bible Study?

Hmmm yes everything is better with bacon. I still haven't made a savoury version but yours looks so good I will have too. it would kick the non christian in the butt to have his image on a christian bible study group,
