Spoils of War: Bacon and Cheese from Missy Bon Bon

Team 6 writes for CDOmnivore

Often, the most inspired food choices are combinations that draw upon the best qualities of the two individual food items and merging them into something that boggles the mind. Like, peanut butter and chocolate; chocolate and caramel; or bacon and ice cream.

Missy Bon Bon's Bacon and Cheese

Missy Bon Bon Breadshop (MBB) bakes the best pastries this side of Cagayan de Oro, the softest and puffiest of crumbs of their baked delights. What if that pastry is combined with something that provokes the most elemental reaction in men; that would be pure fried pork fat strips with all their grease. Yes, I'm talking about bacon as a topping to MBB's lates savory pastry, added with some cheese for good measure.

The Bacon and Cheese pastry is the scion of MBB's delightful pastry and bacon. It is both soft and crunchy at the same time, the pastry offering minimal resistance to one's bite and the fried bacon bits providing that crunch. It is a tad salty though; after all bacon is essentially salted pork fat fried to sinful perfection. The cheese add some flavor to keep it interesting, but still, bacon is bacon and some people just can't get enough of it.

We wouldn't mind getting more of this snack in our gift boxes Missy Bon Bon, that is if we win.
