Bacon Candy

Here is another good bacon recipe -Bacon Candy. It is delicious and addicting. Cinstraw, and all, have you had it? If not, try it -it is so yummy!!! Pat

BACON CANDY

During the Christmas holidays, my nephew retired and passed his company to his children. The company gave him (and two other retirees –one was another nephew.) a wonderful retirement party. Everything was out of this world! One thing I thoroughly enjoyed was Bacon Candy. They had several tall glasses on the bar with candied bacon in them. It was so good and addictive. I looked at several recipes until I found one that was very close to the bacon candy they had. It is sooooo good. I got this recipe from MyRecipes.com


Crispy, sweet and salty, this three-ingredient snack is the ultimate cocktail party hors d'oeuvre.
• Yield: 20 strips

Ingredients
• 1/2 cup (packed) light brown sugar
• 1 1/2 teaspoons chile powder
• 20 (1 1/2 pounds) thick-cut bacon

Preparation
Preheat the oven to 400°. Line 2 rimmed baking sheets with foil. In a small bowl, whisk the brown sugar with the Chile powder. Arrange the bacon strips on the foil and coat the tops with the Chile sugar. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, until caramelized and almost crisp. Transfer the bacon to a rack set over a sheet of foil to cool completely; serve.

Bacon Chocolate Bark

Even though I am not on the site a lot lately, every time I see something with bacon; I think of CinStraw. I am posting this recipe -I think that we all will like it; hopefully Cin will see it;

Bacon Chocolate Bark


Ingredients
• 2 slices thick-cut bacon
• 1 tablespoon caramel sauce
• 2 1 ounce squares bittersweet chocolate, unwrapped

Directions
1. Place bacon on a rack in a shallow pan. Brush bacon with caramel sauce. Bake at 350 degrees F for 20 to 25 minutes until crisp. Once cool, cut into 1-inch pieces. Meanwhile, line a small baking sheet with parchment paper. Place bittersweet chocolate square about 1-inch apart prepared baking sheet. Bake chocolate for 4 to 5 minutes or until softened. Using a spoon, spread the chocolate to a thin even later. Place the bacon pieces on top. Chill for at least 30 minutes or until chocolate is set. Wrap in plastic wrap. Store in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.

NOTE: TO USE A CANDY BAR:
If you are using a chocolate candy bar, reduce baking time to 2 to 3 minutes or until softened. Spreading is not necessary.

Bacon Wrapped Turkey

Well again, CinStraw (Bacon Queen), from Straws Kitchen came to mind when I saw this recipe. It looks pretty, and I would think the bacon arranged on top before cooking it would make it most and flavorful. I love bacon -but am not obsessed with it. Since I am going to my niece's out of state, I am only making/taking 2 Pecan Pies and a Squash Casserole. If any of you "Bacon Fans," think this sounds good and/or make it, please let me know.

Turkey and Cranberry Sandwich... "YUM"

I've never had a turkey and cranberry sandwich, not until 5 years ago, and after I came across this recipe, which was posted by Emily Mathews at food.com. The turkey and cranberry sauce goes so well together, plus the bacon, mayo, and provolone cheese, brings this sandwich over the top. I love this sandwich, and hope others will give it a try!
