The holidays are the season of decadence and I’m no stranger to things that are a little over the top.  The thing is, I want them to be easy too.  Enter my Praline Bacon.  It is literally the stuff dreams are made of… if your dreams are made of bacony, sugary, caramely goodness.  And let’s be honest.. whose aren’t???

It’s the perfect treat to serve yours guests this holiday season whether in bite size pieces at a party or for breakfast or brunch.  And because it’s so easy, you’ll have more time to spend with family and friends! 

You're only 3 ingredients and about 30 minutes away from Praline Bacon deliciousness! I start mine with NatureRaised Farms Hickory Smoked Uncured Bacon.  It’s thick-cut, so it’s perfect for this recipe.  And it’s available in a two pack at Sam’s Club so it’s a great option to have some extra on hand for the holidays.  Find your local Sam’s Club.

To begin, preheat the oven to 450°F and line a jellyroll pan with foil. A jellyroll pan is simply a baking sheet with edges.  You’re gonna want to use a pan with edges to keep the bacon grease from pouring all into your oven.  Lining it with foil makes cleanup a breeze.  Find a cooking rack that is oven safe and place it inside the pan.  I happen to have a set that came with the pan and rack that works perfectly for this.

In small bowl, combine the brown sugar and finely chopped pecans.

Cook the bacon for about 20 minutes or until it is just starting to crisp around the edges.

Generously sprinkle the brown sugar mixture on each slice of bacon.  Return to the oven for about 10 minutes or until the bacon is crisp and the sugar has melted.

    Most favorite treat is a chocolate chip/cream cheese overnight baked french toast casserole and a hot cup of coffee with chocolate caramel creamer…but it might be different now with this praline bacon recipe lol

  22. Martha Washington Candy was made every year when the kids were home. We would make big batches and then divide into several bowls. Most was the traditional with coconut and chopped pecans and dipped in chocolate, (It freezes so well.) For the other bowls we left out the coconut and pecans and one had mint flavoring; flattened with a glass and dipped in chocolate. One had marschino cherries drained very well; wrapped the dough around and dipped in chocolate. One had orange flavoring and zest and dipped in chocolate. Another had lemon flavor and zest and dipped in white chocolate with lemon flavoring. Rum flavoring for the adults and dipped in chocolate. And this year I have already made two fruitcake batches. One doubled and today’s was tripled using a Fresh Apple cake recipe and fruits and nuts of YUR choice. Mine – fruitcake mix candied fruit, candied cherries, regular and golden raisins both, dried apricots snipped up with scissors, dried pineapple, pecans, walnuts and the SECRET to a moist, not dry fruitcake is to add 1 banana mashed up with a fork to your batter. Merry Christmas to Everyone!
