Sugared Bacon}Holiday Breakfast

I think today’s recipe is probably the most popular item I serve at my annual Holiday Breakfast.  It is the thing people will ask if I am serving when they call to RSVP!  I think some of them would not come if I weren’t!!

I actually shared this recipe here on the blog two years ago but it was hidden in the middle of a post and had no photo.  This recipe is so good it deserves it’s own post and a photograph!

I think the original recipe actually had cinnamon in it and was called Spiced Bacon but I have never put the cinnamon in so it is just sugar – thus the name Sugared Bacon.  Something sweet plus bacon is quite a popular combination lately – have you seen the chocolate bars with chocolate in them?  A little strange but it works.

Well, brown sugar and bacon is pretty darn good together too – what wouldn’t be good combined with brown sugar?

The process is pretty easy.

Just cook your bacon about half way. Jim is the bacon cooker at our house and I will admit this bacon got cooked a little bit more than half way but that’s o.k. – it just takes less time to bake in the oven that way.  I used a thick cut bacon.

Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper and place partially cooked bacon on sheet.

Sugared Bacon

Mix 1 cup of brown sugar with enough water to make it a paste (you can also add a teaspoon of cinnamon if you like).  Using a pastry brush, cover bacon on both sides with the brown sugar paste.  In a 350 oven cook the bacon until completely cooked (about 10 minutes depending on thickness of bacon).

    And then you can cut the slice in half, wrap around a cocktail sausage, secure with a toothpick and then you have the appetizer that people clamor for in my house.
