I have other posts to get out to you that are so important, but yesterday on a whim I candied up some bacon!
It was so good and had to share. This will be short and sweet because I’m working on a giveaway post 😉
I adapted it from Emeril Lagasse’s Cayenned Candied Bacon – you know I had to throw some heat in there.
Very easy –
1 lb. bacon
1 cup light brown sugar
3/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
Preheat oven to 350°. Combine the brown sugar and pepper in a small bowl and individually press the slices of bacon (both sides) in the mixture until fully coated.
Bake on a cookie sheet lined with foil for 20-25 minutes, until crispy. Drain on paper towels for a few minutes, then transfer to a plate.
I was feeling adventerous and crumbled it over french vanilla ice cream.
The kids loved it.
I’m thinking of more ways to eat it. What’s your ideas??
Have a wonderful Monday, and remember to watch out for my next post where I’m giving away something fun for the kitchen!
