    Girl, oh girl is this good. Made exactly as written but I used the cayenne pepper option and am I ever glad that I did. Sweet, spicy and hot, just the way I like it. Everything shone, it was sweet but you could taste the pork, spices, and heat. I ate all this myself, I am ashame to say. For breakfast, I rolled a Australian Pikelet around the bacon to make a mini sandwich, so tasty. For lunch I made a bacon sandwich on sweet mexican bread with a crisp watermelon salad. It was great in both forms. A tasty treat that has many varied uses. Thank you so much for sharing this treat. Made for the Fearless Red Dragons - ZWT8 - Mexico
    Used recipe#11813 to make this and it was a perfect match! This bacon is so flavorful and good. It is sweet and you can taste all the spices without it being spicy. I left out the pepper but otherwise made as written. Made for PRMR.

    Loved it!


I'm just me, mother, grandmother...friend to many and a Louisianian. My Cajun and French Quarter Italian descent afforded me exposure to some of the best of foods. My passions are my family, decorating, cooking and gardening. Those very passions push me into constant awareness with always looking for something new to delight the senses, thus my favorite idiom...Inspire me, puuuullllllleeeeeeease! ...and I mean it, too. God Bless America!
