Here is how to make the Special Brownies I just had with my brisket. They are delicious! Here is what you will need.
1 family size brownie mix & whatever is required to make it (usually oil, water & eggs)
1 8 oz. pack of cream cheese
1/3 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1 chicken egg
6-8 slices of bacon (homemade works best but store bought can be substituted if need be)
Cook up the slices of bacon nice & crisp.
Getting nice & crisp.
Remove the bacon from your skillet & save all the grease - this will be your bacon oil Let the bacon cool down & break it into small pieces.
Mix up the brownie mix substituting 25% of the oil called for with your bacon oil.
My mix called for 2/3 cup of oil so I used 1/6 cup bacon oil.
Here is the brownie mix with bacon oil.
The bacon broken up into small pieces. I use 1/3 cup for these usually.
Add the bacon pieces to the brownie mix & blend them in. Set this aside for now.
In a separate bowl beat the cream cheese till it's smooth.
Add the sugar, vanilla & chicken egg then mix well.
Dump the brownie mix in a baking pan. I use a 9 x 13 - it is a lot easier for me to get good results in the next 2 steps than with a smaller pan YMMV.
Now take a spoon & drop the cheesecake mix into the brownie mix in even intervals.
You want to end up with something similar to this.
Now take a butter knife & slide it back & forth to intersperse the cheesecake mix within the brownie mix.
You want to end up with something like this. Do not - I repeat - DO NOT mix everything all together You want the two mixes to be swirled together but separate.
Bake in the oven according to the temp on the brownie directions keeping in mind that it will take longer due to all the extras. Use a toothpick to determine when it is done.
Here it is just out of the oven. You can see the test holes from my toothpick.
And this is what you end up with - an awesome treat!
