When faithful Bacon Today reader Alana Muir visited family members last fall in Duluth, Minn., she had a near-religious experience while dining out. And no, it didn’t involve Norwegian-style Lutefisk, that air-dried whitefish loved by the Norwegians and Swedes who settled in Minnesota.
So what was the focus of Muir’s spiritual moment, even though she didn’t get to try the dish? Look no further than The Duluth Grill, a family-owned eatery in town that serves breakfast, lunch and dinner. Oh, and a little dessert called the When Pigs Fly Sundae.
But what does this have to do with bacon, you ask? Easy: the When Pigs Fly Sundae a delicious dessert built with three scoops of vanilla ice cream, crispy applewood-smoked bacon, caramel, hot fudge, saltine crackers and a cherry. The dish costs about four bucks for a sweet-and-salty finale to a satisfying Duluth Grill meal.

We’d order that in a minute, but Muir lives in Scotland, which is a little far for takeout ice cream, no matter the bacon content. That’s why you should take time when cruising through Minnesota to check out the restaurant’s site to see what looks good. You might want to call ahead while you’re at it and mention the When Pigs Fly Sundae. On its own the sundae might make the trip worthwhile, although we think the list of burger options might also get us there.
So thanks, Alana, for alerting us to this bacon-fueled dessert. We hope you’ll come back and order a When Pigs Fly Sundae so you can let us know what you think. Now, how far is it to Duluth…
