Wow. This recipe was fantastic! And I overheard everyone at our brunch commenting on the "amazing bacon." :) The only change was to 1/2 the amount of dry mustard powder; this gave it a hint of mustard without overpowering the other flavors. We'll definitely be making this for other get-togethers in the future! ----- Update: The leftover rub from this recipe is out-of-this-world on salmon. Just rub onto salmon filets and then grill til done. It's our new favorite way to eat salmon!
I used thick sliced bacon, so 30 minutes didn't get it crispy, but it didn't matter, I thought these were great. Just the right amount of spice with the cayenne. I used a big baggy to mix the spices in and then threw the bacon in which made it really easy to coat it. Yum! A fun recipe. Thanks!
This was such a hit! It was the first thing gone out of well over 40 appetizers at our Twelfth Night Party. I made 3 lbs and it was gobbled up. One guy said "As if bacon weren't good enough!" He met everyone at the door with a piece of bacon and told them to try it. Definitely the hit of the party. The foil is very important and be sure that you make it rise up the sides of the baking sheet. You end up with the burned praline mess in the bottom of your pan, so this makes it so much easier. Thanks so much for such a great recipe.
We tried this for brunch this weekend and it was a huge hit. My daughter affectionately renamed this "Candy Bacon". Best to cook it on a broiling pan so the drippings can drain off. Next time, I will wrap the almost finished product around shrimp or scallops and finish cooking on the grill!
I have been using this recipe since 1989 when I worked for a caterer, it's always a hit. (I do omit the cinnamon). It is a must try if you're looking for something new to bring to a party. We called it "Candied Bacon" at the Moose's Belly. Enjoy!
This was outstanding! I made a mistake and put 1/2 tsp. cayenne instead of 1/4 tsp.. I was so worried that it would be too spicy but it wasn't. I did not twist mine. Simply because I overlooked that part of the directions. We loved them.
Quite tasty. Didn't have mustard in spice form, so I used dijon mustard instead. It made sort of a paste which I crumbled over the bacon and pressed it into the bacon. This worked very well.
