This post was written by my lovely drivers ed teacher, Mrs. Deborah Newell. Mrs. Newell has informed me that she is a wonderful southern cook and wants to share her recipes with the world. So here it goes…
Pig Candy.. that’s right.. when you are from the South..2 thinks go hand and hand.. Bacon and Brown Sugar.. put the 2 together and you will have a dish just waiting for a FIGHT! now let get down to business:
1 lbs. Bacon
Dark Brown Sugar
that is it, 2 things.. Now who could not remember that ..right?
Now, roll that wonderful bacon real good in the dark brown sugar and place it on an oven rack that has been coated with Pam.. I always line a baking dish with foil cause that fat off that wonderful bacon is going on something and you don’t want to have to throw away a pan.. so make it easy on yourself and line away… Place this pan underneath the rack with the bacon on it. The grease will drip right onto the pan.
Bake this on 350 for about 20 min. and you don’t have to turn it over as long as it is on that rack..
Let it cool (if you can stand it) and Voila-PIG CANDY.
This makes the best BLT’s in the whole and I mean Whole wide world ever.
NOW LET’S GET TO COOKING!
