Bacon cheddar buttermilk biscuits
M.B. Post (address and info)
There are a lot of tasty directions you can go on the ever-evolving menu of David LeFevre’s M.B. favorite (which includes plenty of killer porky options), but your first direction has to be toward the top of the menu and his signature bacon cheddar biscuits. The perfect balance of meaty-cheesy-buttery magic, these fluffy bad boys feature crispy Nueske’s bacon from LeFevre’s home state of Wisconsin, and come with a side of maple butter, which you should use generously. Oh, do you also want a side of that bacon that has been candied with rosemary, brown sugar, and chili? Yes, yes, you do.
Bacon and braised leeks tartine
Canelé (address and info)
There are a lot of delicious reasons to hit this bring-a-date-charming Atwater spot, but the massively thick, house-cured bacon is one that you can’t afford to ignore. Throw that crisp, smoky goodness in the braised leek tartine with fried eggs at brunch and you’re ready to tackle the rest of the weekend.
