Three words... BACON. MAPLE. LATTE.

Made in your kitchen with your Keurig Kcup brewer!

I feel no introduction is needed here. We need to get to the recipe as quickly as possible!

There are two variations. The first is so easy.

1. Brew your favorite Kcup coffee in your Keurig coffee brewer. I would suggest a darker roast such as Tullys House Blend or French Roast brewed on the lowest water setting of your Keurig.

2. Place a piece of cooked bacon in your coffee and let it sit for 5 minutes.


3. Froth or steam your milk. You can simply heat about ½ – 1 cup of milk in the microwave or stovetop if you do not have a frother.

4. Pour the milk onto the coffee.

5. If you are lucky enough to have a milk frother you can now crumble the bacon on top of the milk! I really think this make the drink. I have a super cheapo $10 frother that works just fine.


The second variation is the same as above for the most part except, instead of putting the bacon in the coffee you would use bacon fat. (I know, I know but, you only need a teaspoon- how bad for you can that be? And it’s a Bacon Maple Latte; did you really expect it to be healthy?)

Here is how to handle the bacon fat:

1. Cook up the bacon. Save the fat – this is the part you really need. Make sure you cook the bacon slowly, so all the fat cooks out, then strain the drippings through cheesecloth or a very small strainer so that it is clear. You can store this fat in a covered container in the fridge. You can cook with it or use it for your coffee, just keep in mind that it doesn’t keep forever. You’re going to want to use it in a timely fashion.

3. Add anywhere from a teaspoon to a tablespoon of bacon fat to your coffee, depending on your tastes. Remember, it’s a flavoring – you don’t need much.

The novel part of the drink is…bacon fat. Not bacon essence, bacon flavoring or bacon #40, just plain ol’ bacon fat. You’ll find that it separates from the coffee; just stir it again if you want.

I am soooo excited about this recipe!!! I think it would go quite well with this donut…
