Sweet & Spicy Bacon

This simple recipe makes mouthwatering spicy-sweet bacon that you can use to top salads and casseroles, or enjoy in sandwiches and even on its own. I prefer to use a naturally-cured, high quality bacon. And you can double the recipe to make more (this recipe makes about 1 cup of bite-sized bacon pieces).

1/2 lb sliced bacon
2 tsp Bear-Man Tummy Rub Seasoning
2 Tbs light brown sugar

Preheat oven to 425F degrees. In a small bowl, thoroughly combine the Bear Man Tummy Rub Seasoning and the brown sugar. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or aluminum foil, and lay the bacon slices on it. Sprinkle the bacon evenly with the seasoned sugar. Bake until the bacon is crisp and browned, around 10 to 15 minutes. While the bacon is cooking, place a few sheets of paper towels over a wire rack, to be used to cool the cooked bacon. Once bacon is fully cooked and crisp, carefully transfer the strips to the prepared rack to drain and cool. You can now use it as crispy strips, or chop into bite-size pieces for sprinkling. If not using right away, allow the bacon to completely cool and then place the strips between sheets of parchment paper in an airtight container and store in the fridge for up to 5 days.

Zestfully yours,
