Baked Bacon

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by NoSpringChicken

Bacon acquires a crunching coat with wonderful zipped-up flavor. When I started making this more than 40 years ago, egg substitute was not readily available. Now I use that instead of egg yolk, which will work, too. The recipe came from a newspaper years ago and is yellow with age. I make this often.....for breakfast, brunch or a snack!

This recipe sounded so wonderful. So I went all out. Dragged out the extra ingredients, and went by all the steps listed here to "dress up" our Sunday morning breakfast. I followed the recipe exactly, using the egg yolk rather than egg substitute... It smelled wonderful while cooking and looked festive, too. But the result? Disappointing. I only ate a bite, and my husband and son, who love bacon ate barely a half piece each. Because of the cracker crumb coating, I suppose, the bacon was about 10 times greasier than bacon cooked the usual way. I am so sorry to give a low ratng here, but I do wish I had known how very greasy this bacon would be before I started this recipe, myself...
