Local Flavor: 4505 Meats' Bacon Peanut Butter Brownie

Can you handle another bacon dessert?
"We inhabit a subculture peculiarly steeped in pork fat," blogged SFoodie editor John Birdsall earlier this afternoon, speaking of the porcine pleasures available in the Ferry Building. To that we humbly add the bacon peanut butter brownie, available on select Thursdays (when there's a street food-focused Farmers Market from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.) at star butcher Ryan Farr's 4505 Meats stall.

Bacon sweets may have jumped the shark a long time ago, but this is certainly more sophisticated than most of the mass-marketed products out there that we've tried. Served in a small cup, it's not an exaggeration to say that this brownie almost tastes more like a savory appetizer than a dessert simply because that thick, meaty slab on top (pasted on by rich, creamy peanut butter) dominates the other flavors. If you don't pick it off and eat it first, that is.
