I just returned home from a beautiful month in sunny California. While there I tried Man Candy. The menu described it as Bacon with Brown Sugar and Spices. It sounded delicious! But, when the order came, it looked and tasted different than what I had in my minds eye. So, today I decided to try and make my own. It turned out just like I imagined! I just used items I had on hand. I can't imagine how good this is going to be when I actually shop for ingredients!
I hope you enjoy it!
Pepper Jelly ( I had Cranberry)
I sliced bacon into six pieces then coated each side with pepper jelly, brown sugar and cayenne pepper. I placed on a cookie sheet (the kind with sides) lined with foil and put into a cold oven. Set oven at 400* for approximately 20 minutes. Keep an eye on it so it doesn't burn. I prefer my bacon on the crispy side so I went the whole 20 minutes. Enjoy!
I'm lucky to have found a person to spend my life with that loves and believes in me. He must be a special man because I am quirky, unorganized & think my cluttered thoughts aloud to him on a regular basis.
