While I was deciding which recipe to post today from my Nummy email archive, The Chef sent over this one, and it obviously trumped all the other options. And then I clicked over to find that TanyaNads had cosmically received The Chef’s bacon brainwaves down in NOLA and started the ball (of fat) rolling on her own!
I have had a version of this sweet, salty goodness at many an MCC wedding, which might make you think I run with a pretty posh crowd. Let me prove you wrong: When The Chef sent this over, he mentioned that this freezes well, so you should make a whole bunch.
He also mentioned that he’s actually eaten this “straight outta the freezer” and that it’s pretty good that way. Clearly, I was impressed. The man made himself a bacon lollipop. That’s just sexy.
I would suggest that you could add a little chili powder to the mix and no one would be mad, but I’ll leave that up to you. Either way, this treat is entirely worth the extra hour you’ll have to spend on The StairMaster to work it off. And that’s how long it’s been since I’ve been to the gym. I think The StairMaster is still a relevant piece of workout equipment. Fat. And. Happy.
- Preheat the oven to 325.
- Mix all ingredients except bacon together.
- Place bacon on parchment paper on sheet pans. Lay in single layer. (This is where the skewer would come in if you are presentation-conscious.)
- Bake for 15 minutes, then brush with glaze and bake for another 5 minutes. Munch heartily. (But remove that stick before you. Nummy is not yet wealthy enough to retain counsel.)
