Free Range Danish Bacon Butter Recipe
( SERVES 1 )
You know the saying… ‘Everything tastes better with bacon’ ? Well here is the perfect example! The uses for bacon butter are endless…crumpets, toast, pancakes, popcorn, corn on the cob, scrambled eggs, waffles, bacon butty’s…to name a few!!
In a large fry pan over medium heat cook the bacon for approx. 7 mins to render the fat. Remove from heat and allow it to cool.
In a medium bowl add the butter, maple syrup, paprika, chives and a couple of twists of cracked pepper. Once cool enough add the cooked bacon and mix thoroughly.
Take a large sheet of baking paper and spread the bacon butter from one edge to the other. Fold the baking paper over and twist up the ends to form a tight roll. Wrap this in food wrap and refrigerate or freeze.
Alternatively you can make 2 small rolls and keep one in the fridge – slicing off bacon butter as you need it – and the other can go into the freezer.
