Sticky Pig Twigs A spicy-sweet bacon treat
Make a pile of these, because they will disappear right before your eyes. Enjoy as is, or chopped on salads. Especially good on a juicy summer BLT … add more hot pepper if your crowd can take it!
- 1 pound thick sliced bacon, cut into halves
- 4 tablespoons honey
- 1 tablespoon light brown sugar
- 2 tablespoons vinegar
- 1 tablespoon soy sauce
- 1 tablespoon stone ground mustard
- ¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper
- Freshly ground black pepper
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Blend all ingredients (except bacon).
Line baking pan with foil or parchment paper. Place wire cooling rack over lined pan and spray. Lay slices of bacon on rack. Bake 15 minutes. Brush bacon with glaze and continue baking about 5 minutes. Turn bacon over and brush.
Continue brushing and cooking at 5 minute intervals, checking to make sure bacon does not burn. Remove from oven when deep brown and edges are crisp and curled, about 30 to 35 minutes total. Cool on wax paper or rack.
