This recipe was originally submitted under the name "best bacon". I changed the name to "breaded bacon" so it would be more descriptive. This is basically shake-and-bake bacon. A light coating of flour and brown sugar gives the bacon a bit more crunch, which is most noticeable after the bacon has cooled. When it's warm, you won't notice the coating much at all. Discerning palates might perceive that the coating locked in more bacon flavor. I'll make this again if I have a need for cooled bacon, like on a salad or a sandwich. For variations on hot bacon, I might suggest you try Sweet & Spicy Pecan Bacon or Smoky Sweet Custom Bacon. (The recipe on this page was submitted in 2007. It was tested and photographed in February 2014.)
- 1 pound bacon
3/4 cup flour
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon pepper
How To Make Breaded Bacon
Mix together brown sugar, flour, and pepper in a large Zip-loc bag. Add bacon and shake it up to bread the bacon.
Bake on a cookie sheet at 350 for about 15-20 minutes, more if you like it crispy!
Transfer cooked slices to stacked paper towels to drain excess grease.
My husband heard about this recipe on ESPN. I was skeptical at first, but it's pretty good! You might want to add salt too, depending on how salty the bacon you use is.
Mr Breakfast would like to thank jennie_leah for this recipe.
