Tempura Bacon

Tempura Bacon created by 2Bleu

....*WHAT?* Rest assured, you can tell yourself this is about the healthiest thing you could possibly eat. (Course, you can tell yourself you have 7 birch trees growing out of your left eyeball if you want – It’s not like I’m gonna argue.) ;) The measurements and yield here are approximations as I stole this recipe (Bacontarian) and it didn't come with anything useful. The author serves this with soy sauce with garlic and red pepper flakes in it. YOW!

ingredients

directions

  • Combine first 7 ingredients (through cayenne powder) and mix well.
  • Fry bacon halfway to your liking.
  • Heat about ½ inch of oil in large skillet to 350°F.
  • Dust bacon and onion chunks with seasoned flour, shake off excess (I use a mesh colander) and place in heated oil, being careful not to crowd, which lowers the heat and allows too much oil to soak into what you’re frying.
  • Fry to your desired doneness - (This is so subjective, I’m going to leave it up to you) – golden brown works for me.
  • Not just for breakfast, consider also using as a garnish for a steak or on a bed of warm, braised brussels sprouts tossed in garlic and mustard.

    This was very simple to make, and the seasonings were wonderful. The bacon turns crisp, but has a light flour coating on it rather than a tempura batter. I opted not to make the onions and feel it should be listed as 'optional'. Overall a nice and unique way to make bacon.

    Well I didn't make tempura bacon, however this recipe inspired me to chop up some bacon into bits to use in my temura batter. I also added capers, it was so good. We had bacon/caper battered shrimp and chicken tempura. Thanks for the idea!
