Ingredients

  • 1 pound bacon
  • 1/4 Cup honey
  • ¼ teaspoon. chipotle powder (optional)
  • 1/2 Cup brown sugar

Directions

Prepare grill for medium-high heat grilling.  Place bacon strip on the grill grate, drizzle honey over the top of the bacon slices and sprinkle liberally with brown sugar.  Close the grill and allow the bacon to cook until crisp, approximately 15-20 minutes.  Remove the bacon using a spatula as the honey and brown sugar mixture will be extremely hot.  Allow the bacon to cool completely before serving.

 

 

 

Bacon Shopping Tip

Look for center cut bacon which comes from a leaner part of the belly - you'll get more meat and less fat.

Bacon Cooking Tip

Cook bacon over medium to medium-low heat to prevent it from burning, and occasionally pour off the fat. You can save it for later use as a cooking oil.
