Pig Candy: A Party in my Mouth

I've been gone for a few days and I owe you an apology or at least some great gifts. Let's try for both. First, I sincerely apologize for leaving you in the lurch since Thursday night with no warning. All I can say is that I've been a little in over my head. I won't let it happen again. Second, I've got a great gift for you and I think you'll be very pleased.

I have two words for you: Pig Candy.

Pig Candy is basically bacon and sugar, although some foodies insist on ginger and cayenne pepper too.

Pig Candy - from The Sweet Potato Queens' Big-Ass Cookbook and Financial Planner
  • Bacon (several strips)
  • Brown Sugar (enough to coat bacon strips)
1. Coat uncooked bacon in some dark brown sugar.
2. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes.

  1. Possibly almost as good as chocolate-covered potato chips ...

  2. A friend of mine recently made bacon infused bourbon. Naturally, I sent him this recipe.

  3. Ta-da! You're a click away from a bacon flavred Old Fashioned.
