Praline Bacon

Leah Stacey Recipe

By Leah Stacey CookingMaven

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.

Ingredients

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

1
Place pecans and brown sugar in a food processor and chop till the nuts are chopped fine but not powdered. Set aside.
2
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.
3
With a pastry brush, brush the dark corn syrup generously on the slices of bacon.
4
Pile the pecan brown sugar mix on top of the bacon and press into the corn syrup.
5
Place the bacon back in the oven for an additional 5-10min. If you like a crisper bacon you can cook longer.
6
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.
