I tried several new recipes over Christmas, some turned out fantastic, like this Honeymoon Bacon, and some turned out horrible (like a crockpot oatmeal I tried).
I have to be honest, I don't LOVE bacon like so many people do (like my brother David). I know there is a huge bacon craze going on right now, but I just can't get fully on board... mainly because sometimes the smell of bacon grease makes my stomach turn, but David has made us this honeymoon bacon several times and I loved it despite my weird aversion to bacon.
I decided to give this a try over the Holiday weekend since I decided to try a bunch of new recipes. It was so easy - just as delicious as I remembered! It is sweet and salty with a little bit of spice from the red pepper flakes. And since the bacon is baked it didn't make the whole house smell like bacon grease! I'm going to have to start making this more often - is everyday too often? Thanks Dave!
Red Pepper Flakes
1. preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line cookie sheet with foil. Place bacon on foil and put brown sugar over each strip of bacon, then sprinkle with red pepper flakes.
2. Cook bacon for 20-30 min. Place in broiler for 1-2 min if you like bacon crispy. Serve.
