Do you really need a reason? Seriously, salty, hickory, smoky bacon with woodsy pecans and sweet brown sugar stickiness? It’s a firm yes for me! I first started making this for Valentine’s Day. Every year I make a “Bacon, Berries, and Beignets with the Boudy’s” spread for breakfast for the whole house. Regular bacon Praline bacon and turkey bacon with chocolate-covered berries along with beignets. Instantly these are gone from the table. So take the empty plate’s word for it. You’ll love it!
- Heat oven to 425
- Add a baking rack to a sheet pan to allow the bacon to cook elevated allowing the fat to drip on the sheet pan
- Line up bacon on the rack and bake for about 15 mins then sprinkle with pecans and then brown sugar
- Bake for 3 mins, check on it to see if the sugar is melting, if it needs help , spoon some of the bacon fat on the bacon and bake for about 2 more mins.
- Remove from the oven and allow too cool.
