So…we are going to talk about bacon.
THIS bacon here.
This bacon might be the best thing you have ever eaten. I am not kidding. I was unsure at first because, I mean, how can bacon be any better than…well…bacon?
This really is. The flavor is out of this world. It is just a little jazzed up recipe to grace your brunch or breakfast table and is perfect to add a little zing to something ordinary.
I can hardly call bacon ordinary, but you get what I am trying to say.
Warning: Do not make too much of this because you might want to eat it all. Eating whole packages of bacon is sometimes frowned upon.
I am just saying.
Sweet and Savory Bacon
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 tsp chili powder
1 tsp smoked paprika (regular paprika in a pinch)
1 lb package of bacon
Cover a baking sheet with foil and place a cooling rack on top. On a plate, toss together brown sugar, chili pepper and paprika. Dredge each bacon slice in the spice mixture and place each slice carefully on the baking rack. Bake for 20 minutes until bacon is cooked through. Take pan out of the oven and let sit for five minutes. Transfer to a serving plate and enjoy.
Oh man. You NEED to try this.
