Sriracha Spiced Bacon
I first saw this recipe on Pinterest (acknowledgement to The Kitchen Whisperer) and was determined to try it. Being a bacon lover, this ticks all the boxes – crispy, sweet, spicy – it is divine. We fell upon it and devoured it in minutes, fighting over the last little crumbs…
One tip – the drippings in the oven do burn and our kitchen filled up with smoke when I opened the oven door so make sure you have all the doors and windows open. Or, do what we are planning to do next time – do it in the kettle BBQ – the neighbours will be salivating…
500g streaky bacon
1 cup brown sugar
2 tablespoons Sriracha Chili sauce (or more if you like it really hot)
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
Preheat oven to 220C.
Combine brown sugar, Sriracha sauce and cinnamon in a bowl
Line a rimmed baking sheet with aluminium foil
Place a wire cooling rack on top
Spray the rack with cooking spray
Place the pieces of bacon on top of the rack trying not to overlap
Microwave the spice mixture for 15-20 seconds until it’s spreadable
Spoon or brush the mixture on top of the bacon.
Place in oven and cook for about 10 minutes.
Remove from the oven and flip the bacon.
Reheat the spice mixture
Spoon or brush the mixture on top of the bacon
Return to the oven and cook for an additional 10minutes.
Remove from the oven, allow to cool 1 minute on the rack and then using cooking tongs, and remove the bacon from the rack
The bacon will crisp up as it cools so leave for a few minutes
Bon Appetit! 🙂
