Pig Candy

Some friends were telling us about Pig Candy.  It sounded delicious so we found this recipe online by Paula Deen.  This is easy to make and yummy.




Pig Candy
By: Home Run Recipes

8 slices of Bacon or 1/2 a pound
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 tablespoon Dijon Mustard
1/4 to 1/2 tsp cayenne Pepper (I leave this out if my kids are going to be eating it)

1/2 tsp Pepper  (If you buy peppered bacon don't add any more, I also leave it out or use less for the kids)

Cover the bottom of a cookie sheet with foil.  Place a wire rack on top.  Place bacon on the rack. 

In a bowl mix the brown sugar, mustard, pepper, and cayenne pepper together, it will form a paste.  Spread the mixture on the top side of the bacon slices.  Only spread it on one side.  Put into oven and bake for 15 to 25 minutes.  Just until bacon turns crisp.  Not all ovens are created equal so keep an eye on it.  Remove from oven and let cool slightly before serving.   To serve I usually cut eat slice of bacon into 4 little pieces.  This makes it easier for the kids to handle.
