Do You Want My Leftover Bacon”
– Said No One Ever
My kids love to snack on meat.
Not cookies, not cupcakes, but meat.
And, after devouring a serving of Candied Bacon at Bob Evans, they begged for more. (Seriously, they love meat: this Pounder and beef sticks from our local deli are the most sought after snacks in our house.)
If Bacon is Good, Caramelized Bacon On A Stick Is Better
Attempting to score points in the “Best Mom Ever” contest, I made a batch of Candied Bacon as a pre-dinner snack at home. For bonus points, I threaded the bacon on mini skewers because, well, meat on a stick is awesome.
These disappeared in minutes. Literally. Gone in a flash. THAT delicious.
Unique Bake Sale Treat
If you want to create a stampede at the Bake Sale table, put 2-3 skewers of Candied Bacon in treat bags. Because, who doesn’t love bacon? And, again, meat on a stick is awesome.
