Bacon Ice Cream Recipe

plate of cooked baconIngredients

  • 1/4 pound bacon, raw, roughly chopped
  • 2 cups half & half (substitute whipping cream for richer ice cream)
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1/2 cup light corn syrup
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar, light, packed


In a medium saucepan over medium-high heat, combine bacon, half and half, milk, corn syrup, and sugar. Bring to a simmer, stirring to dissolve the sugar. Reduce to maintain a gentle simmer and cook, stirring occasionally, for 5 minutes. Remove from heat, cover, and set aside to steep until a deep bacon flavor develops, 10 to 20 minutes. Strain through a medium-mesh strainer and set aside to cool to room temperature. Cover and refrigerate until thoroughly chilled.

Place in your KitchenAid stand mixer ice cream maker accessory and process according to directions.
