A new twist on bacon 

Let’s be honest. If you like bacon, bacon never gets boring. It doesn’t need anything to make it better. However, sometimes we like to shake things up. And that is just what we did. My fiancé had a grand idea and well we loved it and now I’m sharing it with you. So for this Try-it Tuesday, it’s something for you to try. Rubbed Bacon! 

You want to start off with the bacon that you normally like. We prefer thick cut bacon. 

  
Then you need to select your rub.   

As you can see we like rub in this house. And the little baby on the left end is the house blend rub. The recipe is under lock and key! But select a rub that you like and if you enjoy it on porkchops you will like it on bacon. Trust me! Preheat your oven to 400 degrees. 

  
Next I put the bacon out in the pan. I like to cook my bacon in the oven. It’s the least amount of work for the best flavor and there’s no chance of me getting burned with popping grease. So win! 

 
Of course I used our house blend and you can see I’m just sprinkling it all over.   
 Here is how your bacon will cook. Nicely covered with the rub of your choice. Put the pan in the 400 degree oven for approximately 20-30 minutes. I have a hard time saying exact time because I watch mine closely and when I start to smell it I know it’s getting close. And of course depending on how crispy you like your bacon makes a difference in the time. 

  
The finished bacon smells amazing. You will want to remove from the pan asap and put on a plate with papertowels to soak up the grease. You can make cleanup easier by putting tinfoil in the bottom of the pan. I was lazy this morning and didn’t do that. 

   
 Lastly serve with your favorite breakfast treats. Over the long New Year holiday weekend we had breakfast every morning and it was so lovely. I love being able to make a good meal for my family. 

Until next time! Mangia!
