Candied Bacon

Yet another post about bacon. There are some peanuts in there for a little variation. I had some friends over the other weekend for dinner and my friend Joel brought candied bacon and peanuts. It was delicious. I know I've said it before but is there anything bacon can't do?

As a complete aside, I need to brag about my afternoon. I haven't had much babysitting lately so I've been feeling a little burned out on the parenting side. Nothing to worry about, it's just that I haven't been as fresh as I could be in that department. My mom took my girls and the dog out, and Jess was downtown. I had a list of chores to do but decided to first lie down on my couch and enjoy a silent house for a few minutes. I think you know where this is going...I had a nap! Holy cow it's been a long time. It was awesome!

Perhaps even better than the candied bacon.

Candied Bacon and Peanuts

When I asked Joel how he pulled off his bacon delight, this was his response. It was concise and to the point, kind of like bacon itself. Rumour has it that Joel is part man, part bacon.

Just kinda winged it.
THICK (old fashioned) bacon from Loblaws in toaster oven for about 20 minutes at 350 meanwhile melted brown sugar in a pot and added some maple syrup. Finished the bacon in the pot - just a minute. Took em out and threw a bunch of peanuts on lower heat for about 3 minutes. Chop bacon, mix and cool in fridge.
