Almonds

Instead of serving plain old salted nuts, add another layer of flavor by tossing the nuts in bacon fat before seasoning. This is a snack that any bacon-lover will not be able to resist.

You can also try making these with candied bacon, for a more salty-sweet flavor. — Allison Beck

INGREDIENTS

  • 2 strips bacon
  • 2 cups (16 ounces) roasted almonds, unsalted
  • 1 teaspoon sugar, honey, or agave syrup
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • A pinch of pepper

DIRECTIONS

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Cook your two strips of bacon in a frying pan until crispy. Take out of pan and drain on paper towel.

Put your almonds into a bowl and mix with the bacon grease. Give them a good stir and then spread on to a cookie sheet.

Bake for 5-7 minutes.

Mix sugar, salt and pepper together in a separate bowl.

Take the almonds out of the oven and place in a brown paper bag (shopping or lunch bag works great).

Grip the top of the bag closed and shake, shake, shake. The grocery bag will absorb any extra grease.

 Take the coated almonds out of the bag and place in a mixing bowl. Crumble your bacon into bits and add to nuts. Then, add the mixture of sugar, salt and pepper.

Ta da! Put the nuts in to a serving bowl and watch them disappear.

Recipe Details

To make the day-of preparations easy, you can make the nuts a few days before and store them in a air-tight container.
