Making Better Bacon

So it’s been a while since I’ve posted and all I’ve got to talk about it bacon.  What is wrong with this picture.  Anyway,  we’ve had some sickees around our house this past week.  Keith has been really sick and Leah has a confirmed case of the flu.  Paige and I are praying we don’t get it.

Anyway, back to bacon.  Last year I made a decision to remove pork from my diet.  I love bacon so I started buying turkey bacon, but its just….lacking.  You know what I mean.  I recently saw this idea either on a TV cooking show or online somewhere and tried it and now the turkey bacon is palatable.   Here’s the recipe:

Package of turkey bacon

light brown sugar

cracked black pepper (I use a pepper grinder, but you could probably use regular pepper)

Lay your turkey bacon on a baking sheet and sprinkle the light brown sugar and then grind black pepper over the top.  Put in the oven and bake  until done.   I think I usually leave it in around 15 minutes.


You end up with much better flavor.  It really, really helps.
