SPICED BACON SKEWERS
Everyone loves bacon. Why not serve it to your guests at your next party. After preparing the bacon, you skewer it which makes it easy to eat when guests have a drink in their hand.
- 15 - 20 wooden skewers If using wooden, soak in water 30 minutes
- 1 cup packed light brown sugar
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 3/4 tsp cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp cayenne
- 3/4 tsp nutmeg
- 1/2 tsp ground cloves
- 1 pound applewood-smoked thick-cut bacon Excess fat trimmed from short ends
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Line baking sheet with foil. Coat a wire rack with cooking spray and place on top of baking sheet.
Put brown sugar, sugar, cinnamon, cayenne, nutmeg and cloves in a resealable plastic bag. Shake bag well to mix ingredients.
Thread 1 slice of bacon onto each skewer like ribbon candy. Don’t push bacon together too closely or bacon won’t cook evenly.
Dip each bacon skewer into plastic bag with sugar mixture, making sure to coat both sides well.
Lay each skewer on rack.
Sprinkle skewers with any remaining sugar mixture.
Bake 25-30 minutes until bacon is brown and crisp, turning skewers after 12-15 minutes.
Makes 6-8 servings.
