Instructions for Beer Candied Bacon Strips:
I started off by baking the thick, high quality strips of bacon on 350 degrees for about 20 minutes on a shallow baking sheet. Until they were crispy. I immediately transferred them to a cooling rack. Once they completely dripped free of the oil and cooled I transferred them to a different deep baking dish. I added a 1/2 cup of brown sugar sprinkled over the cooked bacon then I added 1/4 cup of Miller Lite beer. If you are baking more than 10 strips you can double this recipe. I would always add more brown sugar than beer though. Then I heat bacon again on 400 degrees for about 10 minutes. Just enough time for the brown sugar to start bubbling as seen in the collage photo above. Remove it from the oven and immediately transfer it back to the wire rack to cool. Careful it’s extremely hot! One it’s cooled enjoy it!

(I had a friend tell me to try beer candied bacon but I think this idea originated at Tide and Thyme)
