Who else makes Chocolate Chip cookies with bacon?

Yes, yes, I know, bacon may be *so* over ... basically doing hopscotch over that darn shark.

But whatever. It's still good.

So the other day I had the Chocolate Chip Cookie with Bacon from Market Grill (in Monrovia).

Damn, that sucker was good. Bacon was nice and salty and gave the cookie a nice crunchy texture (if you like nuts in your cookies, you'll like this).

So, now I want to know, who else makes good Chocolate Chip Cookies with Bacon?

Market Grill ...

  1. Well I will give them a shot and let you know how they turn out. Aprox. how much bacon would you say was in one cookie,1 crumbled piece per chip?

      I think that's about right. 1:1 ratio.

    2. Hey, who makes them and then dips them in batter and deep fries them? lol

        Whoa! Now that would be awesome. Maybe even after dipping them in batter, roll them around in bacon bits?

        1. re: ipsedixit

          but then you risk over-cooking the bits when you fry about seasoning the batter with Bacon Salt? ;)

          1. re: goodhealthgourmet

            ... or just use bacon salt in the cookie batter?

      2. i think you should head over to the No Cookie Left Behind Bake Sale at Scoops tomorrow afternoon - maybe you'll find some bacon CC cookies among the offerings...

        1. Market Grill is suppose to have a good hot dog/chili dog. Anybody try it?

          1. re: reality check

            I've had the hot dog, not the chili dog. I _love_ their homemade New England style buns:


            Awesome fries, too. But . . . the dog itself was disappointing. Rubbery and nondescript. NB: it's been over a year since my last visit, so things may have changed.

          2. The recipe I use calls for 2 pounds. Batch size is about the same as the basic toll house recipe. I tried the cookie from LardoTruck and thought it was ok at best. Not even in the same ball park as my homade ones.

              Would you mind passing on your recipe? I would like to give these as try.

                Just a friendly reminder, folks, please begin any recipe discussion on the Home Cooking board. It is OK to post a "heads-up" on this thread if you start a topic on Home Cooking.

              2. re: Shagg

                I've tried the LardoTruck BCC cookies too, and the Market Grill ones are definitely a cut above (to say nothing of your homemade ones, of course!)

                On a slightly tangental topic, two more things I love about Market Grill:

                1) The soundtrack. Recent lunches there have been graced by the dulcet tones of "Holiday In Cambodia", "Glasgow Mega-Snake", and "Tanz Mit Laibach"

                2) They don't mess around when it comes to chipotle peppers; unlike most places where "chipotle [anything]" means "mildly smoky and tingly", at Market Grill it means something more like "holy moly, that's HOT"

                  I forgot to mention, but Market Grill might make the best potato salad in a 25 mile radius.

                  1. re: ipsedixit

                    What else is a 'must order' item there? Are the burgers or hot dogs (steamed in dark beer!!) any good?
