Pecan & Brown Sugar Bacon Recipe

March 26, 2019

Bacon has got to be one of the number one foods around the world. I grew up eating it in BLT sandwiches and mainly breakfast but now it’s used in just about everything! Have you heard of the Keto diet (lifestyle)? If yes, you probably eat bacon a lot.

The best thing about bacon is that is goes with just about everything. Sunday April 14th, is National Pecan day. I had no idea! But now that I do, I wanted to feature a recipe using pecans and what better to serve them with than bacon?

I’m not going to lie. I’m not a fancy foods kinda gal. I like bacon just the way it is: crisp and salty. I wasn’t even sure if I was going to like this recipe but boy was I wrong!

The combination of brown sugar, pecans and salty, savory bacon cooked to a crisp was delicious. I wasn’t expecting to enjoy it as much as I did yet I kept coming back for another piece. The best part? This recipe uses only 4 ingredients and takes about 30 minutes from start to finish. Baking the bacon in the oven is so easy and the clean-up is a snap!

Let’s get bacon! Get it, hahahahaha!
