Chile-Glazed Bacon

Sweet and spicy glazed bacon, what's not to like about that?

Plan on making a lot, it will be eaten up fast.


Lay the bacon out on a rack a place on a sheet pan. Bake in a 350* oven.
I cooked mine on the grill using indirect heat


After the bacon has baked for a while, brush the bacon with the glaze and return to the oven to finish cooking the bacon

Chile-Glazed Bacon

1 cup honey
1 tablespoon red chile powder
1 /4 teaspoon ground cumin
1/4 teaspoon garlic salt.
Combine all ingredients in a small saucepan on low heat and cook for 1 minute, stirring constantly.

1 cup yellow mustard
2 minced jalapeno peppers (stems removed)
1 /2 teaspoon spoon turmeric.
Blend well and allow to sit for at least 1 hour to develop full flavors.

1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
2. Arrange the bacon in a single layer on a baking sheet with sides. Bake about 10 minutes and pour off rendered fat.
3. Mix the remaining ingredients together and brush the bacon with the mixture.
Return the bacon to the oven and bake about 4 minutes. Turn the bacon over, brush the bacon with the mixture again,
and return the tray to the oven for another 4 minutes, until the bacon is medium brown and crispy. Serve hot.

Chile glaze also does wonderful things for baked winter squash, roasted or grilled poultry, and pork tenderloins.
