Astonishing poetry aside, I simply can’t think of a reason why you shouldn’t make candied bacon for your next gathering. Even if you’re spending the evening alone with a bottle of wine and your favorite Netflix show streaming, call it a “personal gathering” and make yourself some candied bacon.

Calling it “meat candy” doesn’t make it sound as delicious as it is, but that is essentially what candied bacon is – it is delectable, addictive thick slices of bacon brushed with a mixture of earthy soy sauce, sweet maple syrup, with just a touch of added heat and spice from your choice of chili powder or chili flakes.

I like to use homemade ghost pepper flakes. This year I used chili flakes made from dehydrated Brain Strain peppers. Nice and spicy.

Take a bite of candied bacon. Now you are addicted. Now you know how I feel.

Make yourself more candied bacon because 12 slices isn’t enough.

No one can resist candied bacon. A mixture of soy sauce, pure maple syrup and spicy chili powder turns bacon into a sweet treat. I like to serve these at brunch alongside a Bloody Mary bar. Be sure to make extras. Nobody takes only one.
