Brownies are for breakfast, especially when they have bacon in them

Today, after giving my boyfriend a full 24 hours to claim the last lonely brownies, I finished it – for breakfast. Then I got told brownies are not for breakfast. On that I call BS. Who really eats a completely balanced breakfast? What breakfast isn’t a sugar loaded sweet tooth festival?  Unless your a eggs on toast kinda person, most breakfasts I can think of have sugar. And lots of it. Pancakes, waffles, crepes, fruits, cereals – all sugary goodness. I am not a breakfast person to begin with – heck, I don’t really even like eating before noon – but what my health conscience self does usually grab in the AM is either a steak or in today’s case, a brownie. Besides, these tasty treats have bacon in them, that counts for something, right?

    I’m with you…I’d eat these for breakfast, lunch or dinner! These look amazing…so rich and chocolaty. Add the bacon caramel and I’m in heaven. Gorgeous!

    I love the idea but then again I eat pizza for breakfast heeheehee. I just love these photographs!

    This is the best brownie ever! I thought brownie was good enough. Bacon caramel just makes it so twisted and wicked and I can’t imagine how great that is so I must make it. I like it super gooey.

    I’m intrigued by the bacon/chocolate combo – these I am going to have to try – though will probably wait for morning coffee as it would be just totally decadent to have these for breakfast :)

    Brownies for breakfast? Hells yeah.
    I usually make mine with instant espresso powder, which makes them the next best thing to a double-shot latte…. right? 😉 I have to admit that your bacon version sounds even better, though, especially since if your photos are anything to go by, they’re super-gooey just the way I like them.

    Brownies for breakfast sounds like the start of a darn good day to me. 😉

    These look so very decadent. Bacon and caramel….I’m pretty sure I would demolish these.

    These sound positively decadent. My dad used to always give us the last brownie or piece of pie for breakfast when we were growing up. It’s something I still occasionally do now and my husband always gets mad at me for it. Silly because I guarantee it’s no worse than a muffin or the syrup drenched french toast which I love for breakfast.

    This is 2 thumbs up breakfast in my book!

    I used to skip breakfast and have some bites here and there during the morning, but just like you said, unless you have eggs, everything else is sweet in the morning.
    the brownies look great, amazing photo as usual
    Thanks for sharing Kita

    I am trying this for a friend’s birthday this weekend. I am so excited. I do have one quick question – what do you do with the 2 slices of cooked bacon in the brownie portion of the recipe? I see where you use the two slices in the caramel sauce, but there are also 2 slices mentioned in the ingredients list for the brownies. Do you simply stir the chopped bacon into the batter at the end after the flour?
