Bacon Rusks for the Road

“Rise and shine!” - two favorites combined. My grandmother’s buttermilk rusks and Eskort Bacon. What could go wrong on this trip if it starts out with these?

A thick, sweet buttermilk rusk batter is combined with crunchy pumpkin seeds, caramel chips and #JustDelicious crispy bacon then baked and stored overnight to cool. Slice into equally sized fingers and slow-bake overnight to dry out before storing in airtight containers.
