bachelorette brunch: part deux

In breakfast on July 28, 2009 at 12:32 am

what better weapon with which to fight off a hangover than maple roasted bacon?

this is adapted from something i saw ina garten do, although instead of using regular bacon, i chose turkey bacon. but the joy of it is the little set up she suggests:

baconbefore

check it out! rather than doing your bacon in a frying pan on the stove (where it spatters fat everywhere and fills your kitchen with smoke that smells for days), ina wants you to roast it in the oven on a cooling rack on top of a jelly roll pan (which is just the technical term for a cookie sheet with sides, but i’m sure anything to catch the drips will do). how cool is that?

at 400 degrees, it took 15 minutes or so to brown. then brush the bacon with maple syrup and – my addition – freshly ground black pepper and pop it back in the oven for 3-5 minutes.

this second roasting caramelizes the syrup and makes the bacon crunchy and almost like candy.

hangover: solved.

more to come…
