Pecan Praline Bacon

I was having a discussion about pecan smoked bacon with LFern.  That reminded her that at a potluck someone brought a caramelized, pecan encrusted bacon dish.  I did some of JeffW’s famous googling and found that it is a fairly common recipe.  How come I’ve never had this? I have been deprived.  Here’s the recipe:

Pecan Praline Bacon

  • 1 pound thick-cut bacon (about 12 slices)
  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons chili powder
  • 1/4 cup pecans, chopped fine

Preheat oven to 425°F.

On rack of a large broiling pan arrange bacon slices in one layer, broil until bacon is lightly browned.  Remove.  In a small bowl stir together sugar and chili powder. Sprinkle bacon with sugar mixture and pecans. Return pan to oven and cook until bacon is crisp and browned, about 5 minutes.  Watch carefully, it can burn easily. Transfer bacon to paper towels to drain.
