Adding real bacon bits to chocolate chip cookie dough makes a savory twist on a sweet treat.


  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup bread flour
  • 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
  • 1⁄2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 11⁄2 cups turbinado sugar or light brown sugar
  • 3⁄4 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 egg
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1⁄8 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1⁄4 pound bacon, fried crisp, cooled, and crumbled


  1. Preheat grill to 325 F, and set it up for indirect cooking. Grease cookie sheets, or line them with parchment paper or baking mats; set aside.
  2. Sift flours, salt, and baking soda into a large bowl; set aside.
  3. Using a mixer, combine sugar and butter. Add egg, egg yolk, cinnamon, and vanilla, and mix until creamy. Blend in sifted ingredients, then fold in chocolate chips and crumbled bacon.
  4. Drop 1⁄4-cup-size dough balls onto prepared cookie sheets, 3 inches apart.
  5. Bake for 9 minutes, then turn and bake for an additional 7 to 9 minutes. Cool slightly on cookie sheets before moving to a rack to finish cooling.
