Boozy Bacon Cherry Crumble #SundaySupper

Boozy Bacon Cherry Crumble

Boozy Bacon Cherry Crumble with dark sweet cherries, bourbon maple syrup, oats and BACON! Head down the road to Delicioustown!

I know people that salivate at the word, “Bacon”. They drool like puppies at the smell of sizzling hickory-smoked strips of meaty goodness.


Okay, maybe the “they” is me. But I’m not alone.
Lehigh Valley was the home to A&B meats, a leading producer of processed pork products.
Our minor league baseball team is the Iron Pigs. Of course one of their mascots resembles a pig and another a strip of bacon.



I’ve been known to sneak bacon into recipes before like Cinnamon Bacon Donuts, Waffles, Potato Hash, Pretzels, Hot Bacon Dressing and Biscuits.

For today’s recipe I pulled out all the stops. Dark sweet cherries, maple sugar, bourbon maple syrup, oats and a double shot of bacon. You’ll get bacon every scoop of fruit AND in the crumble topping!
