Cook butter in medium saucepan over medium heat until melted. Once melted, stir often until butter begins to brown and smell nutty, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and add in pecans, sugar, cinnamon, and flour. Cool and reserve.
In a large bowl, whisk flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, salt, and sugar together.
Stir in melted butter, sour cream, milk, eggs, vanilla, and apples until smooth. Pour into prepared pan.
Sprinkle crumbled bacon on top of batter, followed by streusel.
Place pan in oven and bake for 30 to 45 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
Optional: Add an extra degree of difficulty (and flavor) by pouring out half the batter in the cake pan, then adding a layer of streusel before adding the final half of batter and another layer of streusel on top--as pictured.
Cook pasta according to package directions but stopping short a minute less than package's cooking time. (Pasta will finish cooking in later step.) Drain pasta, reserving 1/2 cup of pasta water.
While pasta cooks, add bacon to a large skillet and cook until crispy. Turn off the heat, remove the bacon with a slotted spoon and then add the drained pasta to the skillet and toss it in the bacon fat.
Add eggs, salt, pepper, and parmesan cheese to a large bowl and whisk well. Then add mixture slowly to the hot pasta while tossing it to prevent scrambling.
Add peas and 1/4 cup of pasta water, one tablespoon at a time, tossing again to create a silky consistency to the pasta. Top with the bacon before serving.
In a large bowl, whisk the first 10 ingredients together. Then dip each slice of bread into the egg mixture. Arrange slices in the prepared dish. Pour the remains of the egg mixture on top. Cover and refrigerate overnight.
Remove from fridge 30 minutes prior to baking it. Preheat oven to 350F. In a small bowl combine the first eight topping ingredients. Spread on top of French Toast.

Mix white sugar and cinnamon in a sealable plastic bag; add 6 to 8 biscuit pieces at a time and shake until well coated. Pour any remaining sugar-cinnamon mixture into brown sugar mixture. Place saucepan over medium heat and cook and stir until sugar dissolves, for about 2 to 3 minutes.
Sprinkle 1/4 the bacon pieces in the bottom of the tube pan; pour in about 1/4 the brown sugar mixture. Arrange 1 layer of biscuit pieces in the tube pan; sprinkle in 1/4 the bacon pieces. Drizzle about 1/4 the brown sugar mixture over the biscuit pieces. Continue layering until all the ingredients are used, ending with a drizzle of brown sugar mixture.
Bake in the preheated oven until biscuits are cooked through, about 35 minutes. Allow to cool in pan, 10 to 20 minutes; invert onto a serving plate.
Remove the steaks from the refrigerator 30 to 60 minutes before cooking so that they reach room temperature before cooking.
Preheat the oven to 450 degrees.
Wrap one slice of bacon around each filet and secure it in place with a toothpick. Rub a little olive oil on the top and bottom of the filets. Then season steaks generously with salt and pepper.
Heat a cast-iron skillet (or other oven-safe pan) on high heat. Place filets on the pan and sear each side for 1-2 minutes until you get a nice crust.
Turn off the stove and place the pan in the oven. Cook times may vary based on thickness of steaks and how long you seared it. Check the internal temperature after 5-7 minutes. Take the steaks out after it reaches 125 degrees F for rare, 130 degrees for medium rare, and 140 degrees for medium.
Allow the steaks to settle for 5 to 10 minutes before serving or cutting into them.
Prepare the tart's bacon "crust" by taking a small cast iron pan and covering the bottom of the pan with a pinwheel of bacon. Each bacon slice should have one end at the center of the pan with about half of the slice extending over the edge of the pan. (That overhang will later be folded back to form the top layer of the "crust".) Overlap bacon slices slightly until entire pan bottom is covered.
Add layer of potato slices, then layer of cheese, then potatoes, then cheese, and so on until ingredients are used and pan is filled.
Fold the bacon slices that are hanging over the edge of the pan back over the layers of potatoes and cheese towards the pan's center to form another pinwheel as the top "crust" of the tart.
In a skillet, cook Indiana Kitchen Bacon over medium heat 6 to 7 minutes or until crisp; drain on paper towels. Crumble bacon and set aside. Reserve 2 tablespoons of bacon drippings in skillet. Cook onion in drippings over medium-high heat 6 minutes or until almost tender.
In 6-quart Dutch oven, mix onion, broth and potatoes. Heat to boiling and reduce heat. Cook for 10 minutes or until potatoes are very tender.
Meanwhile, in same skillet, melt butter over low heat. Stir in flour with whisk until smooth. Cook and stir for 1 minute.
