Pork Essentials: The Ultimate Spicy Glazed Bacon

Andy Anderson !


I love bacon, and I love things like BLT sandwiches. This is the bacon glaze I use when I am making my awesome Bacon, Lettuce, and Tomato sandwiches.

This bacon is great to eat alone as a yummy snack, or anywhere you might use regular bacon…

Bacon… nature’s perfect food.

So, you ready… Let’s get into the kitchen.

How to Make Pork Essentials: The Ultimate Spicy Glazed Bacon


  2. Gather your Ingredients.
  3. Combine all the spice ingredients in a small mixing bowl.
  4. Place a rack in the middle position, and preheat the oven to 375f (190c).
  5. Place a wire rack into a parchment-lined rimmed baking sheet, and place the bacon on the rack.
  6. Add to the preheated oven for five minutes.
  7. Remove from the oven, and sprinkle on some of the spice mix.
  8. Place the bacon back into the oven, reverse the baking sheet (back-to-front), and bake for 10 additional minutes.
  9. Remove from the oven, flip the bacon, and sprinkle more of the spice mix on the other side of the bacon.
  10. Return to the oven, reverse the baking sheet (back-to-front), and cook until the bacon is cooked to the desired crispiness, about 10 - 12 additional minutes.
  11. Remove from the oven, and allow to cool on the rack for 10 minutes. This will allow the glaze to set.
  13. Eat by itself, or combine with other ingredients to make a yummy BLT. Enjoy.
  14. Keep the faith, and keep working.
