Do you love bacon? I do, I call it my gateway meat. It’s the one meat I always liked. We buy some amazing smoked bacon locally from Heywood’s Provisions. It’s incredible, they dry rub and smoke it over hickory. Yum!
Do you also love honey? This delicious oven-baked candy bacon combines honey granules with bacon and bakes it into candied bacon goodness. It is INCREDIBLE. You can leave the honey granules off and just bake your bacon this way for regular bacon, too. It is the best way to make extra crispy bacon, just the way I like it. Enjoy!
Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
Lay your bacon flat on a cookie sheet.
Sprinkle honey granules over one side of your bacon.
Bake at 375 degrees Fahrenheit for 20 minutes (for thin-cut check it at 15 minutes). Drain the grease into a grease keeper every 5 minutes to keep the bacon’s edges from burning. If you’d rather not drain the grease, you can place an oven-safe rack on top of your cookie sheet and let the bacon drain as it bakes.
Remove your bacon from the oven and try really hard to wait a few minutes so it doesn’t burn your tongue. Then enjoy. We eat it literally like candy. Pile your candy bacon up on a plate and munch away. It’ll be amazing in sandwiches and in bacon dips as well I’m sure. That is, if it ever survives the day to make it into anything other than delicious sticks of munchable candy bacon. 🙂
