Makin Bacon

     There are quotes about it.  Elvis Presley had a favorite sandwich with it.  There is even bacon salt.   Bacon.  Everything tastes better with bacon.  If vegetables tasted like bacon, everyone would be eating them.  
     So, go ahead and add to the bacon creativity that is out there.  Dare to add flare to your breakfast and give one of these bacon flavors a try.  Later, experiment with your favorite spices and play around with syrup flavors.  I like to change it up by using maple agave syrup.
Chinese 5 spice bacon -
 1 tsp Chinese Five Spice
 1/4 cup agave syrup

Candy apple bacon -
 1/4 cup  Brown sugar
   3 Tbsp  apple juice

Sweet Peppered Bacon -
  1/4 cup agave syrup
  1/2 tsp pepper (1/2 tsp more if you are daring)

Cajun Bacon -
 1/4 cup agave syrup
  1/2 tsp cajun seasoning

  1. Mix the ingredients together.  Set aside. 
  2. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and place the bacon on it.
  3. With a Basting Brush, brush on the spice mixture.
  4. Bake at 375 degrees for 10-15 minutes.  Check often to make sure you do not burn the bacon.  If necessary turn down the oven to 350 degrees.
  5. Drain on a paper towel and serve.
