Leah's Story

The birth place of Praline Bacon is at a place in New Orleans called Elizabeth's. I have tried different recipes trying to find which I think is the best and I came up with this one. It is salty and sweet and oh so good! It is great for Breakfast or for sweet little snack.


1 lb
good thick cut bacon
4 Tbsp
dark corn syrup
3/4 c
brown sugar
3/4 c
pecans, chopped fine
**for an even sweeter twist you can dip these in some semi sweet melting chocolate!

Directions Step-By-Step

Place pecans and brown sugar in a food processor and chop till the nuts are chopped fine but not powdered. Set aside.
Place the bacon on a foil lined cookie sheet. Cook the bacon in the oven at 425 degrees for 12-15min. Take the bacon out and place on a paper towel to drain.
With a pastry brush, brush the dark corn syrup generously on the slices of bacon.
Pile the pecan brown sugar mix on top of the bacon and press into the corn syrup.
Place the bacon back in the oven for an additional 5-10min. If you like a crisper bacon you can cook longer.
Remove the bacon from the oven and drain on a paper towel. Enjoy!

    This looks so good - I think I'll try it the next time my daughter visits from Indianapolis.
    One question, in the directions:
    You say to place pecans and brown sugar in food processor, then after the nuts are chopped, to mix with brown sugar. Am I reading this incorrectly? Or do you use just part of the brown sugar in the food processor, and add the rest later?

    I put the brown sugar and the nuts together in the food processor.
