Late Night Hunger and a Few Pounds of Bacon

4 Sep

After a long week, and a bit of wine, some late night food was in demand. Pete’s old family friend had also just sent a bunch of delicious bacon from the east coast that I felt we needed to tap into, and with that, these tasty morsels were created.

Bacon & Blueberry Bruschetta with Peanut Butter, Homemade Apricot Preserves & Reduced Balsamic

I would say these would be a hit really anytime, and would also be great served in the morning. Be creative, the combinations are endless. Here however, is the recipe for the combo I came up with, as apricot and pork are a fantastic pair.


  • A couple slices of good bread
  • A few strips of bacon
  • Apricot preserves
  • Crunchy peanut butter
  • A handful of blueberries
  • A good squeeze of lemon juice
  • A splash of reduced balsamic
  • A pinch of salt


  • Cut bacon into small bits and fry in a skillet until its nice and crispy
  • Spread first with peanut butter, then preserves
  • Sprinkle with bacon and berries
  • Finish ‘er off with the lemon juice, balsamic and salt
  • Eat, drink water, and sleep…or make another round (we sure did)
