Bakin’ With Bacon and King Teddy!

Standard

It is I – Your King – why in Mexican gear?   Because today’s recipe is HOT HOT HOT !

Yes it might be a little dramatic but it got your attention – Si ??    Today’s recipe is for a SNACK using bacon but another ingredient is CAYENNE!   Spicy stuff that is………but it’s awfully tasty on popcorn especially with the addition of some nice salty bacon!!    This is good for watching a movie on TV or binge-watching a favorite series – or even some sports spectacular.   Ready for this one?

Ole’ !! for Spicy Caramel Bacon Popcorn

 

Ingredients

  • 10 slices of bacon
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons cayenne pepper
  • Nonstick cooking spray
  • 10 cups of popped popcorn (1 cup kernels)
  • 3 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2 teaspoon fine sea salt

Instructions

  1. Line bacon side-by-side on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake at 400 degrees Fahrenheit for 15 minutes, until crispy and brown. Remove and place on paper towels to drain. Press the tops with another layer of paper towels. When cool, cut into small pieces.
  2. Mix the baking soda and cayenne pepper and set aside.
  3. Prepare a large mixing bowl by spraying generously with cooking spray. Also, coat two spatulas with cooking spray. Dump the popcorn in the bowl.
  4. Combine sugar, butter, salt, and water in a medium saucepan. Cook without stirring on high heat, until it becomes light golden-yellow caramel. This takes about 10-12 minutes. Remove from heat and add the soda/cayenne mixture. Careful, as the mixture will bubble up! Add the bacon bits.
  5. Pour the caramel mixture over the popcorn and toss until coated evenly. Pour the popcorn onto a large baking pan and flatten and break into small pieces. Cool to room temp and serve, or store in an airtight container. The popcorn will keep up to four days in the fridge but I doubt it will survive that long because you will be EATING IT IMMEDIATELY!

I expect this will have you doing the Mexican hat dance all the way to the restroom.   HAHAHA    Sorry about that but hot stuff has that effect on some peeps…………

Make sure and have a nice cold BEVERAGE of your choice handy.

Doesn’t this popcorn sound good?   Give it a try!  

Now for no particular reason at all other than I find this terribly hilarious, here’s a little something for your entertainment after surviving another Bacon Blog from the Kingdom on a Saturday.   ENJOY:

See you next Sunday with another baconized recipe………….Your King

Bakin’ With Bacon

Standard

Greetings Baconians! 

Another Saturday in the kitchen here at the castle – I’ve told the regular chef here to take the morning off while I destroy his kitchen and make a big mess.

I’ve got another easy recipe for you today………….I love “EASY” don’t you??

May I present what to me ought to probably be called “easy pizza” but instead it’s called Bacon and Tomato Squares………..I’ll let YOU decide what YOU want to call it – I know the one thing that is true no matter what you decide to name this dish is that it’s DELICIOUS and super easy and makes a great snack, appetizer OR dinner!

Bacon and Tomato Squares

Ingredients:

 Directions:
  1. Preheat oven 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  2. Place bacon in a large skillet over medium heat. Fry bacon until crisp. Drain on paper towels.
  3. Crumble bacon into a medium-size mixing bowl. Mix in bell pepper, tomatoes, and basil. In a separate small bowl, combine mayonnaise and garlic.
  4. Roll pizza crust into a 12×15 inch rectangular baking sheet. Spread the mayonnaise mixture evenly over the crust. Sprinkle the bacon mixture over the mayonnaise, and top the entire pizza with cheese.
  5. Bake 18 to 20 minutes or until the top is bubbly and the crust is golden brown. Cool and cut the into 24 squares.

I’d say the 24 square size is probably good “appetizer” size…………cut in larger squares if you’re going to just eat this like a slice of pizza.   It truly IS pizza when you think about it though – same ingredients and a pizza crust.   Why it’s called “Bacon and Tomato Squares” is anyone’s guess!

BRING IT ON – WE WILL EAT BACONIZED PIZZA STUFF ANY TIME!!!!!

See?  Excitement.   Trust me – you want to make this super easy pizza ASAP.   Then you’ll wish you’d made TWO.    HAHAHA

It’s good to be King…….
