{Recipe} Spicy Candied Turkey Bacon



I love making food gifts.  
When I'm stumped on what gift to get, making a treat is fail proof for me.  
This past week I had such a scenario! I've wanted to try making spicy candied bacon for a while now  and this scenario was the perfect reason to!  I'm sharing because I did read a few recipes and none of them were for turkey bacon, which is what I chose to experiment with and it turned out soooo yummy! And I also used my toaster oven!

Spicy Candied Turkey Bacon

1 regular package of turkey bacon
brown sugar
ground cheyenne pepper

I heated the toaster over to broil.  My toaster oven has a pan with a rack.  I put foil on the pan and sprayed the rack with Crisco (Pam would work to).  Next, I laid out  5-6 pieces of bacon on the rack.  Then, I covered each piece with brown sugar and sprinkled on the cheyenne pepper, this is to your taste.  The person I made this for loves spicy! I didn't go too crazy but some pieces were hotter than others.  Put the pan in the toaster oven and baked for 8-10 minutes. (I started out at 10 minutes with the first 2 batches but then had to adjust the time down for the last 2 batches.)

Let cool.  Store in an air tight container. 
Makes about 22 pieces.

I did managed to package up a dozen for the gift I needed but just about ate the rest before my husband could taste!  He accused me of eating one, saving one, eating one, saving one...... ☺

I did change the foil on the pan after the first 2 batches as the left over brown sugar was getting burned and smoking a little. Other than baking the bacon in batches, this was so easy and very yummy.  You could even do a non spicy version!

There may be more of this yumminess in the near future as Father's Day gifts! 
And the distant future as a new treat in my Christmas goodie boxes!
Did I read there's only 20 Fridays till Christmas somewhere?
I think I did.
Well shoot.

Happy Thursday lovelies!!

Show & Share #200! & A GIVEAWAY!


Welcome to the 200th Show & Share!!
So a while back I was invited by a blogger friend to cohost Show & Share.  At about week #105 she wanted to focus on her family and kindly let me continue the party.  True, it hasn't been the same but I really enjoy those of you who come here every Wednesday and share your awesomeness.  No this isn't a party with a lot of links.  It is a party with a lot of quality bloggers who are beautiful, talented, and letting their point of views make an impact. 
So when I sound like a broken record saying 'thanks so much for being here, I appreciate ya!', I really do mean it!!
And that's why, to back up my appreciation, there's a giveaway to accompany this week's party! 
And the only way to enter is to link up!
