Candied Bacon on a Stick Recipe

Candied Bacon on a Stick

All of the deliciousness of the world—on a stick

Need something quick, easy and delicious? Break out the Candied Bacon on a Stick. Inexpensive and impressive, this yummy dish with a slight kick makes people smile. Best part? It can be made several hours ahead and served at room temperature.  


















Ingredients:
1 pound thin-cut bacon
1 cup dark brown sugar
1 teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon cayenne pepper

Instructions:
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Individually thread bacon strips onto 12 inch wooden skewers in about one inch increments. Make sure to spread bacon out so that it is flat. Leave room at the bottom of the skewer for ease of eating. Place bacon on an aluminum covered sheet pan (for easy, quick clean-up) in rows that don’t touch.

Mix together brown sugar, salt, and cayenne pepper in a bowl. Pat individual bacon skewers well with mixture—you want it to stick. Turn over skewers and repeat.

Bake for 20 minutes to one hour (depending on how crispy and candied you like your bacon).

Makes about 25 one-piece servings (but most people eat two or three). 


This original recipe is property of Chef Alexa Lemley and may be used with permission.
