Last night, one of my friends attended a beer and bacon tasting. Umm…..yum??? Ever since her description of the dessert bacon and beer pairing, I have been craving, and I mean craving, bacon. I know. Your cholesterol is going through the roof just reading this, and some of you are in training for Turkey Trots on Thursday. I’m so sorry. I just can’t help myself.
My favorite appetizer EVER is bacon with brown sugar, and I love this quick recipe from Paula Deen. I thought I’d share in case you’re doing any entertaining this week, but let’s face it, I’m doing ZERO entertaining and I’ll make it anyway.
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 tablespoon dijon mustard
1/4 pound sliced bacon
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. In a large, plastic, zip-top bag, combine brown sugar and mustard. Add bacon and toss to coat.
Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil or parchment paper. Place a cooling rack on the lined baking sheet. Put bacon on rack and roast in oven for 20 minutes. Let drain for a few minutes on the rack and serve.
