Spicy Bacon

25 Nov

Bacon.  I love bacon.  It is one simple food that is absolutely delicious on its own or enhances any other dish. I would eat it every day if I could, and there are some weeks when we do!  Jamie and I have even baked with bacon (putting it in cookies and muffins) and the results are always outstanding.

Along with my love of bacon, I also love spicy foods.  Bacon, traditionally is not spicy, but one night I was wondering how I could add some heat to the bacon I was about to fry up.  The addition of jalapeños and red chili flakes turned normal bacon (which is just perfect on it’s own) into a super flavourful and spicy bite of deliciousness!

I love bacon (did I already mention this?)
