This is wonderful!
Preheat oven to 325F.
Get out, how ever many small corn cobs you need for your meal. Sprinkle each one with salt and pepper, then add a slice of butter, to sit on top of the cob, cut one slice of bacon in half, lay across the butter pat, on top of the cob,( it wont cover the whole cob), then wrap in a small square of foil with ends pressed upwards to prevent any leakage that can run out. Use the other half of bacon on another small corn cob.
Place on cookie sheet and into oven for about 20 mins. The one thing I liked, was that the bacon took on the corn taste. To even make it better, I use a product made here in Oklahoma, called Head Country Seasoning. I absolutely love this product and put it on everything, especially my popcorn. My guests even ask what the flavoring is I use on the popcorn, in my scrambled eggs, in my quiches, etc.
Another Bacon idea, I can never find a bacon that has flavor! The peppered bacon is too heavy for me. So, I just get out a cookie sheet, cover with parchment paper, then lay a cookie screen on top of that, spray with oil, lay out bacon, side by side, then lightly salt and pepper it. Salt enhances the flavor. Of course the oven was preheated to 325F. Place the tray in preheated oven, and bake until the texture is what you want. I usually go for about 10-15 mins., depending on if it is a reg. oven or a convection oven, which is quicker.
This would be great for camping too. Bacon CAN go with anything. Right?
While I was doing this recipe, one of my friends, Teresa S. comes walking thru, because, she can smell that bacon all the way down the hall, and ask if I had ever had Candied Bacon? Uh, no? Then she described it, and left. 3 mins. later, her son-in-law, David J. walks in and asks, "Have you ever had Candied Bacon?"
I just look at him, thinking, I was just asked that. Then he challenged me to make it. He told me how, so I will research and try, then will follow up with the details.
The weekend is coming up, calling for a rainy weekend here, so it may be a great time to try the corn and bacon recipe. Do it and let me know how it goes.
