Burning Down the House with Bacon! (Bacon Shortcake with Strawberries)

And this week in weird bacon news....A woman uses bacon in an arson attempt.  Yup.  Seriously, I can't make this stuff up.  Check out the news here.

Welcome to Summer, where it's 85 degrees with 95% humidity.  No one wants to be stuck in a hot kitchen.  Least of all, Me.  I melt.  Seriously.  There's no un-godly reason it should be this hot.  This is an east and relatively quick dessert.  Pick up your favorite fruit, like Strawberries and go to town with this Bacon Shortcake!

Bacon Shortcake with Strawberries
6 slices of bacon

1 pint strawberry, washed and sliced
1/4 cup sugar
1 cup Bisquick
2 tablespoons sugar 
1/3 cup milk
whipped cream

Preheat oven to 350°F degrees.  Place a cooling rack over a cookie sheet.  Place bacon on cooling rack.  Place in the oven and bake for 15-20 minutes, or until desired crispiness.  Remove from the oven and cool.  Once completely cooled, chop the bacon and set aside.  Change oven temp to 425°F.

Slice strawberries and mix with 1/4 cup sugar. Set aside.

Mix the Bisquick, 2 tablespoons sugar, milk and chopped bacon together in a bowl with a fork.  Do not over mix.

Drop onto a cookies sheet in four equal-sized cakes.

Bake at 425°F for 10-12 minutes, until lightly brown.

Split each cake in half, and spoon strawberry slices into the middle. Top with a few more strawberries and a drizzle of the strawberry and juices, followed by whipped cream.
