Posted by: TOM WATSON

This the most requested menu item and recipe. Returning guests ask for Pecan Encrusted Bacon when they arrive. New guests read about it on and ask for it. So, here it is. Enjoy!

Thick sliced applewood bacon
Brown Sugar

Step 1: Pre-heat oven to 400. Line a cookie sheet with aluminum foil. Set a cooling rack on top of the foil and arrange bacon slices on the rack.

Step 2: Coarsely chop pecans.

Step 3: Sprinkle brown sugar on each slice of bacon. Do not use too much sugar.

Step 4: Sprinkle chopped pecans on each slice. 

Step 5: Carefully grasp the cookie sheet and cooling rack together and slide into the oven. Bake for 20 minutes. Tip: If the end pieces begin to brown too soon, cover them with small pieces of foil. Do not leave bacon unattended!

Step 6: Carefully remove pan and rack from oven.


Serve with French toast or pancakes.
