A Delicious Thing That Will Probably, Eventually Kill You

A Delicious Thing That Will Probably, Eventually Kill You

I want to meet the evil genius in the Local Gastropub kitchen that came up with bacon brownies.

Bacon brownie from Local Gastropub, Memphis, Tenn.

This thing is not messing around. Its foundation is a thick, gooey blondie. Pieces of extremely crispy bacon lean against a tower of vanilla bean ice cream.

What really makes this special is the unholy, perfect union of caramel sauce and bacon. It's sweetly salty and satisfyingly crunchy. I want caramel covered bacon chips.

The whole thing falls into the decidedly Southern food group of Delicious Things That Will Probably, Eventually Kill You. But, as is the case with many of the things in that food group, it's worth it. If you're going to feel guilty about eating something like this, bring a friend - the bacon brownie is definitely a job for two people.

Its tragic that the base is a blondie & not a dark chocolate brownie.

I have tried it with both and it is even better with the blond btownie. My immediate thought was that I would return and just order this dessert first but then there are so many great items on the menu at Local that it would be hard to forego an entree or app.
