Bacon + Butter = Nirvana

My adorable neighbor girl is going to turn 4 on July 12th. She told me that she gets to pick anything she wants for supper that day, so she chose fettuccine noodles with bacon butter. First, [shocker] a 3 year-old said this; and second, I wanted some too! I'm making it for supper tonight with spaetzle noodles from ALDI. Why not make it richer and calorie loaded? (fettuccine is a special purchase item, not always available) 

Bacon butter has taken over my thoughts since yesterday, so I looked for a recipe online. I found an awesome one that involved whipping cream and many steps and ice and other labor intensive activities, so the following is champagne bacon butter on a beer budget:

Bacon Butter
  • 1/2 lb. (2 sticks) softened unsalted butter
  • 1 pkg. real bacon bits ($1.49) 
  • 1 tbsp. olive oil
Blend or mix butter and olive oil, add bacon bits. Refrigerate.  

Spread on toast, pancakes, waffles, noodles, sandwiches - endless possibilities. 


  1. I might have to try this since bacon is a food group in our family :-)

  2. Decadent and wonderful. Making your bourbon corn pudding today, though, with fresh local cobs of corn. Have to spread out the decadence!

    Yes, my husband believes bacon is a food group. I think we will make your bacon butter for sure!

    1. Thank you Sara - you gave me another idea, bacon butter on corn on the cob! (lol)
