Yum,yum!! Never tried bacon like this before and was looking forward to it.We loved the peppery edge to the bacon that was completely complimented by the sweetness...delicious! You may want to line your baking sheet as they stick a little,but not a major problem at all. Thanks Loof.....Made for PhotoTag.
