Last Sunday, for Father’s Day, I made my hubby beer-candied bacon for breakfast. I found the recipe on Pinterest… I think one of the people I follow had pinned it and, naturally, I HAD to test it out on my hubby. He RAVED about it! I loved it, too. I am definitely going to be making this recipe again.
Beer-Candied Bacon (The recipe can also be found here)
1 lbs thick-cut bacon
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup + 2 tablespoons beer
1. Oven @ 400F. Combine brown sugar & beer.
2. Set a wire cooling rack on top of a rimmed baking sheet (I used tin foil on the rimmed baking sheet like the original recipe called for, but found that it stuck to my pan and made for difficult cleaning). Dip bacon in sugar/beer mixture and set on top of cooking rack on baking sheet.
3. Oven it for 10 minutes at a time, brushing with sugar/beer mixture at each 10 minute interval until bacon is crisp. (Mine took 3, 10-minute sessions)
4. Cool 1 hour and enjoy!
