Pecan Crusted Bacon

"This recipe was in a magazine at the doctor's office. I copied it onto the back of my check book, and have used the last check, so am posting here for safe keeping. Have not tried yet, but plan to do so for the next family breakfast gathering."

  1. This recipe is great! If you use thinner bacon, like I did, be sure to cut down the cook time by a couple of minutes, or it will start to burn around the edges. Still tasty, though.
  2. I made this for the Fall '09 PAC swap. We had this along with the overnight french toast. Next time I will be sure to use a rack when baking. I did not have a rack so baked it on a cookie sheet. This caused the bacon to burn right in the middle, however the outside edges retained flavor. My 3 yr old decided his bacon tasted like candy!
  3. Oh My Goodness, this is good!!!!! I had some center-cut bacon to use up so this was perfect to try!!! I have a little Cuisinart spice grinder and that thing is so handy for little amounts like this!!! I just put the nuts and the spices into it and it grinds the nuts and mixes all at the same time!! This bacon is sweet, it would be great served with pancakes. I love how easy this is to make and the flavor is really delicious!!! As if you couldn't make bacon taste any better, this does!!!!


<p>Since I practically live on this website, my daughter thought it fitting for me to finally post a little about myself. I have so enjoyed getting to know little snip-its of the amazing cooks on this site, I feel I should join the masses and share a little about me :) I am recently retired and now have even more chances to explore new recipes and cook for my family. I have always believed in a home-cooked way of life for my family and fortunately have bestowed my joy of cooking onto my children. Although my DH is an extreme meat and potatoes kind of eater, I have managed to find opportunites here and there to explore the many facets of flavorful cooking. <br /><br />I have the privilege of having my oldest living just down the street with my beautiful, bright grandson, who I bring home with me after school everyday. My father is also down the road and LOVEs enjoying my treats at least once a week. The best, though, is when my daughter- who shares this hobby and love for food with me- comes to town and we spend hours planning, searching and preparing fun new recipes. <br /><br /><br /><img src= border=0 alt=Photobucket /> <br /><img src= alt= /></p>
