Praline Bacon!

I've taken my Pig Candy recipe to a whole 'nother level. It's the same sweet, salty, smokey and slightly spicy base recipe, with the added flavor of caramel and crunchy pecans.

As I say, this isn't so much a new recipe as it is an extension or adaptation of the previous recipe, so I won't repeat the base recipe here. Instead I'll just mention the added ingredients and steps.

I will be using this bacon in a new recipe that I'm developing -- Praline Bacon Bread Pudding with Rum Raisin Crème Anglaise.

Additional Ingredients
1/2 cup Pecans, chopped fine
1 Tbsp Pampered Chef Sweet Caramel Sprinkle (optional)
2 Tbsp Maple syrup

Prepare the Pig Candy as stated in the original recipe

Dust one side of each bacon slice with pecans just after the last flip and syrup baste.

Praline Bacon!

Sprinkle each slice with a little of the caramel.

Praline Bacon!

Bake an extra three minutes.

Lightly and carefully brush the pecans with syrup.

Bake an extra three minutes.

Remove from the oven, flip each slice over and dust the other side with the remaining pecans.

Let sit five minutes.

Enjoy, then immediately start making more.

Note: I used this bacon to make a killer bread pudding.
