One Sunday night I was hosting a large group of friends for dinner. On the top of the list of MUST-HAVES was Bacon, obviously. Right under Bacon on the list of necessities was SPICY. I was trying a recipe for a sweet/spicy Bacon from a cookbook that I absolutely trust but something went terribly wrong.
I am very good at following a recipe when necessary and I'm not sure what happened here but it was a complete FAIL.
FAILURE X 14298. So, I packed up the kids and ran to the market for emergency Bacon an hour before my guests arrived. (remember that Bacon was numero uno on the list of necessities)
I knew I wanted spicy Bacon so I mixed up some Sriracha and some brown sugar and hoped for the best.
YOU GUYS I don't even know what to say about this strange magic. But Sriracha Bacon has become a household staple that works on burgers, BLT's, crumbled up into salads or omelettes or just eaten straight. Holy Mother Of All That Is Holy this stuff is ridiculous.
