Fancy Bacon

Let me reiterate a not- so- secret secret that I was reminded of again today.

I totally believe that the way to a man's heart is through his stomach . . .  And most specifically through bacon!!! :)

Case in point- After church today, I 100% bribed convinced Lash to stick around for lunch because I had the ingredients for Fancy Bacon BLTs.

I owe my work colleague a major thank you for introducing me to the concept of "fancy bacon."  What is fancy bacon you ask?  Well, there is no specific recipe or methodology- fancy bacon is just bacon drizzled with a generous shake of cayenne pepper and pinch of brown sugar.  You can apply the cayenne pepper/ brown sugar on the bacon while it is cooking in the pan or after when it is draining on paper towels.  Ok, maybe it isn't very 'fancy' after all, but I swear, your taste buds will think it came straight from heaven itself!!  The brown sugar and cayenne lend an incredible kick- sweet, spicy, savory, crunchy. Ahh. I love it.

Unfortunately, I was too wrapped up in my BLT to remember to take any pictures of the creation, but please, do yourself a favor and go make yourself a FB BLT.  It will change your world!

  1. I made fancy bacon for Anna a couple of weeks ago. She loved it! So do I, it's all featured in my upcoming post. Thank you so much for sharing such a simple delicious recipe. The name fits too, it's like the kind of bacon you would expect to get on a simple sandwich from a fancy restaurant.
