My hubby had warned me on Monday night that Tuesday would be a stressful day for him. I woke up and started my normal routine, but as the day wore on, I couldn't help but get a little anxious at the potential monster that could be coming home.......lol! I decided to do something nice for Kevin, but what? As many of you know, I cleaned up my computer, pinning a million recipes when I found this recipe for Beer Candied Bacon. We had all the ingredients which was perfect. Plus, it involved meat and beer, a perfect man pleaser. The flavor was so good, but I made them a little too crisp. Next time I'll reduce my time by 5-10 minutes. Next time you have leftover bacon I would give this recipe a shot!
Beer Candied Bacon
1 pound thick-cut bacon
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 and 2 Tablespoons Beer (Brooklyn East IPA is what I had on hand)
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and place a cooling rack on top. Place your bacon on top of the cooling rack and bake for 10 minutes.
While baking, combine the brown sugar and beer, making a thin syrup.
Remove the bacon and coat one side of the bacon and then flip it over a coat the other side. Bake 10 minutes. Repeat this process 1 or 2 more times using all the mixture and until crisp. *I did mine an additional 2 times and thought it was a little too crisp, will try 5-10 minutes less next time.
