So when husband and I discovered the phenomenon known as Millionaire’s Bacon, we knew we had to try it. I mean, it has everyone’s favorite things – sugar, salt, and spice. It’s the kind of thing you want to eat when you want ALL THE FLAVORS and can ignore the calories. Or are at least willing to ignore them.
I chose to forgo measuring because who does that anyway and just piled my bacon with brown sugar, freshly cracked black pepper, and red pepper (alas, I did not have cayenne pepper in the house, which was tragic but red pepper was acceptable). In the oven for 45 minutes at 350 degrees and we were treated to a gooey, sweet-and-savory delight for our breakfast-for-dinner. Laying deliciously next to the eggs and homemade toast, there was very little argument before we decided this was the best breakfast ever. For dinner.
For Denver diners, if you’re interested in something similar, try the Steubie Snacks at Steuben’s in Uptown. Made with pork belly instead of bacon, you still get a delightful and sinful treat.
