Sweet and Spicy Bacon

Doesn’t bacon make everything better. I certainly think so. I like it every which way and up, but one of my favorite ways to make it sweet and spicy. Or sweet heat as I like to call it. I took a girls trip to Asheville a few years back and we stayed at an awesome bed and breakfast and one morning they served this glorious baked sweet and spicy bacon. I could literally smell it wafting all the way up to the top floor.

Needless to say, I ate my weight ehem fair share that morning and as soon as I got home I worked until I got the recipe just as I had remembered.

It can be easily doubled and if you’re feeling really adventurous you can also try it COATED IN NUTELLA ; ) Trust me, it sounds cray-zay but the first bite will have you convinced it’s a keeper!

And if you need something to go with your bacon, try our SKILLET BAKED EGGS !
