Welcome to the Castle Baconia Kitchen – I am YOUR KING!
We’re ready to bake up another delightful and delicious baconized treat for you to try at home. I got notes from several of you saying by recipe last week for a good old delicious BLT fired up your love of bacon again and I’m so happy to hear that. The BLT is a classic but adding some of those “optionals” makes it extra good.
This recipe I’m giving you today is EASY……………..and possibly addictive!
Candied Bacon Butter
1 stick butter slightly softened
3 slices bacon
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 Lay bacon out on a baking sheet and cover each slice with some brown sugar totaling approximately 1/4 cup of brown sugar (a little over a tablespoon on each slice).
2 Bake in preheated oven at 350°F until crispy and slightly brown on the edges. Be careful because the sugar will burn quickly!
3 Chop bacon as small as you can and mix with softened butter until uniformly mixed.
4 Shape butter into a stick using plastic wrap and store in the fridge until hardened.
5 Serve on toast, bagels, baked potato, steak, burgers, or corn on the cob. Fry an egg in it, saute some onions with it, use it in a brownie recipe.
And I bet you can think of some other ways to use this “special butter” too. It really is terrific on ALL of the things I mention in Step 5 though – surprising just how tasty and it couldn’t be more simple to make. If you have trouble shaping the softened butter with bacon in it into a stick – no biggie – tastes delicious no matter WHAT shape you store it in – but it’s really not tough to do.
So I promised you easy and this would be for sure in that category! And oh boy oh boy oh boy is it TASTY!!
There’s something about the aroma of bacon frying that brings EVERYONE into the kitchen right? EVERYONE!
I will see you next Saturday for more bacon delights!
