Honey Bourbon Snacking Bacon

IMG 3449.jpg

Ingredients (easy to double or triple depending on crowd and math ability)

6 slices of bacon

3 Tbsp honey

1 Tbsp bourbon

Garlic salt

Black pepper

Directions for bacon

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or aluminum foil and place bacon on it, being careful not to overlap pieces. (hint: If you have a baking rack it helps to use it on top of the paper or foil – with bacon placed on top of the rack.)

Bake for about 15 minutes, checking occasionally, until bacon is starting to get crispy in parts.

If you are not using a baking rack, remove most of the accumulated fat before brushing on honey mixture.

Combine honey and bourbon in a small saucepan and bring to a boil.

Lightly brush honey sauce on top of the bacon and sprinkle with a small amount of garlic salt and pepper.

Bake another 5 to 8 minutes until bacon is crispy and dark. (Will crisp as it cools.)

Remove from oven and let cool completely. (By that I mean you get to taste a bite – then let it cool for guests.)
