Bringing home the bacon sounds even better when it is “Millionaire’s Bacon,” which is a bacon option available at Sweet Maple in the Lower Pacific Heights neightborhood of San Francisco, and who doesn’t love bacon options? So what set’s the bacon for millionaires apart from the bacon for the plebeian folks?
Millionaire’s bacon is made of extra thick slices baked for 3-4 hours at 250 degrees. Prior to baking, the bacon is coated in brown sugar and sprinkled with cayenne and black pepper. The bacon’s thickness, plus the amount of fat and the sugar, allows it to practically dissolve as soon as you eat it. There are really only so many ways to describe bacon, so its a little hard to really do it justice, but if you never thought bacon could melt in your mouth, think again! Sweet and spicy, the millionaire method really takes your bacon experience to another level. But don’t worry, the name doesn’t reflect the price. It’s a reasonable (for San Francisco) cost for brunch. Plus, if you aren’t feeling millionaire-y, Sweet Maple also has regular bacon.
After being featured on Discovery Channel’s “United States of Bacon,” the millionaire’s bacon following has really ballooned. Millionaire’s probably don’t wait for much in life, but plan to wait a bit if you go on the weekends.
