Check out these 4 bacon recipes that will blow your mind!
Bacon Recipes That Will Blow Your Mind
Maple-Bacon Brunch Cupcakes: Bacon cupcakes? Let bacon take your taste buds on a breakfast-themed sweet-and-savory adventure. These ingenious cupcakes star crunchy, chopped-up bacon in the batter, along with maple syrup and cereal. A dollop of quick-and-simple cream cheese frosting is the icing on this cupcake, and another little piece of bacon is the cherry on top.
Bacon-Wrapped Turkey with Chipotle and Orange: Woven bacon? Simply wrapping things in bacon is Bacon 101 (still delicious!), so take things to the next level with a woven bacon lattice. Remember when you learned basket-weaving in summer camp? This is just like that. Except edible. It’s never too early to start planning your Thanksgiving menu, so take note! But you could also use this technique on a whole chicken or even a pork loin for double-pork deliciousness.
Peppered-Bacon Twists: Bacon breadsticks, anyone? After many years of breadstick history, you might think that they’re about as perfect as they could be. You would be wrong. This twisted version features a delightful ribbon of bacon and a coating of brown sugar and black pepper for a sweet and sassy kick.
How to Bake Bacon: Put away your cast-iron skillet, because this bacon-baking hack makes it simpler than ever to get crispy-crunchy perfection with very minimal effort. No more grease popping and messes on the stove!
