Pour wet ingredients into dry and mix together.
Pour back into serving dish.

Microwave for one minute and check. If not quite done microwave in ten second increments until it’s no longer runny.
Eat! Mmm, meaty…




MMM…wow. Chocolate and bacon combined just looks too good. Can’t wait to try this yummy recipe. And the fact that I can use a microwave is very exciting.


Do you think you could create a single serve pumpkin pie recipe in the microwave? I tried your cheesecake and it was crazy good. Tried a pumpkin variation but it was a disaster.

Bacon’s high protein to fat ratio makes it a rich source of animal protein, which is one of its dietary benefits. Of course, it contains fat; around half of it is saturated fat, while the other half is unsaturated or “good fat,” containing Omega-3 fatty acids, which have health advantages.


Okay, I’ve got to admit, when I heard about this combo of ingredients, I was a little unsure. But, being the curious foodie that I am, I gave it a go for breakfast. And let me tell you… I am a total convert! It hits the perfect balance between sweet and salty without being too overpowering. You’ve won me over. Thanks for the awesome recommendation!
