For ages and ages, my middle son Oliver has been wanting to make candied bacon.
NO, NO, NO, NO AND NO!! I said……….Bacon with sugar on it…
Anyhow why is there now bacon on here?
Because I gave in…….
But in my defense, I have to say I gave in because he walked to the shops with me and helped me with the groceries…
This is major as he is like a cave hermit and stays in his room most of the time!! 🙂
So Candied bacon it was…
GREEDYBOYS CANDIED BACON…..
Serves 2 Greedyboys but may extend upon grovelling to a hungry dad too!!
1 packet of 300g of streaky bacon .
NO IFS AND BUTS, STREAKY!!
1/2 cup of brown sugar
1/2 cup of maple syrup….
Now this is complex!!! ………..Place the bacon on the tray….Nicely!!
Put in hot oven and grill for 5 minutes until half-cooked.
Remove from oven and sprinkle with maple syrup and then sprinkle the brown sugar.
Put back in oven and grill until brown and bubbly…usually another 5 minutes or so.
Remove from oven and serve ASAP!!
Serve with eggs, sausages and toast but I think that Olli would have just eaten the bacon.
I had a piece and it was strangely ok but very sweet.
I wouldn’t eat it again but its ok……….BUT i know a greedyboy who loved it!!
Err and a greedy dad:)
