"If you are tired of simple fried bacon, try this. Bacon is simmered in a spice blend, then cooked until crisp and coated with great flavor." — WHATS HIS FACE

Ok, I admit I was skeptical. I really didn't see how fried bacon could be improved upon. Wow, was I wrong! This is unbelievably delicious. I made it exactly as stated the first time, and loved it. The next time I upped the garlic powder, and decreased the paprika - outstanding!! Thanks, Whats His Face, and Bill!! (PS, Bill's Bacon is magnificent in a grilled cheese sandwich. I made it using the quick and easy 'Bachelor Grilled Cheese' recipe from this site. Holy cow! Delicious!!)
This was okay but I prefer plain bacon. This also did not smell good while it was frying. Thanks anyway.
Perhaps it was the type of bacon I used (maple) or because I reduced the recipe to one serving but this just tasted like regular bacon. Nice idea however. I might try again sometime with regular bacon.
I wasn't that impressed - it was just okay. It was nice to have a change from the regular bacon, but it didn't make enough of a difference in the flavor for the effort, so I'd rather just have the plain bacon.
My husband LOVES bacon and garlic but this bacon did NOT disappear like I thought it would. If I make again, I will cut paprika in 1/2 and maybe even lessen the garlic.
Hands down the best bacon I've ever had or made! It's absolutely savory!
I'm not sure what that person meant by "it didn't smell good" because my mouth was watering by the smell the whole time I cooked it.
I didn't cook it in water, instead I just sprinkled it on while on the skillet. I added some onion powder as suggested, I also added a pinch of cayenne pepper and a good dose of fresh-ground peppercorn melange. Next time I will add some more of both peppers to give it more of a kick. But as it is, it melts in your mouth.
We prefer regular bacon. Thanks anyway.
My family enjoyed this! Gave the bacon a different flavor! Will definetly make again! Thanks for sharing!
