Firstly Happy Mother’s Day! I’m cooking dinner for everyone tonight but that is for a future post. The other night we grilled up some burgers and I decided to have some fun with the bacon. I have never baked bacon before but after making this recipe I have been converted. It is nowhere near as messy as pan frying bacon and the bacon turns out just as crispy. The clean up after is also a big plus. Cooking the bacon is simple, you preheat the oven to 375 F then bake it for 8 minutes a side. The brown sugar chili rub is very good, not over overpoweringly sweet and the subtle heat compliments the sweetness of the sugar and the saltiness of the bacon. If you are looking to spice up your bacon a bit give this recipe a try. Enjoy!
Baking bacon? Sounds like something I need to try! I mean, it’s practically in the name already.
This is the first time I have baked bacon. It is so much easier than pan frying and it lets you work on other parts of a dish instead of pan frying bacon. Thanks for the comment and let me know how baking bacon goes for you.
