Smokin’ MVP

A Proper Hog Call

Is Spicy Pigskin Candy. Smoky bacon hails as one of a football fanatics favorite foods & in just about any shape or form. We go hog wild for this legendary most valuable player by using it to amplify many of our clutch foods. Bacon wrapped caramel apples, deep fried oreos & smoky taco shells are just come of the ridiculously good items fanatics are experimenting with on game day. Although unconventional, bacon candy is delightfully delicious comparatively & features the irresistible flavors of fall. The only difficult task will be to decide whether to serve it as an appetizer or a dessert. Maple syrup swiped over the bacon before popping into the oven & topping with a brown sugar spice blend is a simple way to take this crowd-pleaser to the edge for glorious afternoon morsels. Follow my pointers for pulling off this exciting tailgating recipe & be certain to have a peek at the video tutorial below courtesy of WBRC Magic City Weekend for a bonafide win-win.

The Basic Fundamentals 

Check the bacon the last 5 minutes of cooking to be certain it doesn’t burn.

1/2 cup dark brown sugar
3/4 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
1/4 tsp freshly ground pepper
8 thick cut bacon slices, cut into thirds
1/4 cup maple syrup

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Stir together the first 3 ingredients in a small bowl. Place the bacon on a lightly greased rack over a foil-lined half sheet pan. Brush the bacon with half of the syrup & sprinkle with half of the sugar mixture. Bake 15 minutes. Turn the bacon & brush with the remaining syrup & sprinkle with the remaining sugar mixture. Bake an additional 15 minutes or until crisp. Cool 30 minutes. Optional Grilling Instructions: For added smoky flavor, place the sheet pan of prepped bacon pieces on the grill over Medium heat 10 minutes. Carefully remove the sheet pan from the grill using heavy-duty grilling oven mitts. The pan will be extremely hot. Proceed with the baking & additional recipe instructions as directed.

The Extra Point

Add a 1 tsp chili powder & 1/4 tsp cumin for extra flavor.

The Pointers

Slicing the bacon into smaller pieces before baking makes it easier to manage. Be certain they don’t overlap so that the candy crisps evenly. 

Sprinkle the brown sugar spice blend in an even layer. Any large chunks will not cook & caramelize uniformly.

Once the bacon is removed from the oven, allow it to stand for good snacking crunch.

Store any remaining pieces in the refrigerator for the sake of food safety.
