Beer Candied Bacon
Oh yeah you heard me right! Beer and Bacon!
AMAZING things together I tell you!
The beer I used for this is Lift Bridge Farm Girl. My husband and I made it to their awesome brewery last spring, you can read my review about some of the places we visited on that trip here Stillwater Minnesota Eats.
Beer is just not for drinking my dear friends you can also cook with it.
I have a bunch of appetizers you can make with beer, and this one was a great one to start off with.
What you need:
10-12 slices of thick bacon
3/4 Cup Brown Sugar
1/2 Cup Lift Bridge Farm Girl Beer
1/4 Teaspoon Paprika
How to make it:
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees
Cook your bacon for 20 minutes on a tin foil lined baking sheet
Remove once done and place on a cooling rack until the bacon is completely cooled
Now line another deep baking sheet with parchment paper
Place bacon on that, cover bacon evenly with brown sugar (you know I'm singing that song in my head as I type this now and in my head I am a fantastic singer let me tell you!).
Next give your bacon a little love and sprinkle it with the paprika
Now poor on that magic beer!
Bake this at 350 degrees for 10 minutes
Remove and let it cool on the racks again.
Now the only way to enjoy this is with a Lift Bridge Beer baby!
Hope you enjoy!
