Chipotle-Glazed Bacon Love

You love bacon…

I love bacon…

We all love bacon..!

But as much as we have love for this fine piece of pork, don’t you ever get the urge to kick it up just a bit? To take it a step above the norm? The urge just so happened to strike me this past weekend…

I had decided to make some nice breakfast sandwiches for my wife and I this past weekend and one of the components of said sandwich happened to be bacon. In the interest of adding a little extra flavor to the sandwich, the chipotle-glazed bacon came into play…

Cook the bacon approximately 4/5ths of the way and then remove from the pan. Also remove the excess bacon grease. Add to the pan 2 Tbsp of brown sugar, 2 Tbsp red wine vinegar and 1 diced chipotle in adobo. Whisk over medium heat for approximately 1 minute. Return the bacon to the pan for one more minute, coating the bacon with the glaze on both sides. Remove from pan and eat..!

This can certainly be used in any recipe requiring bacon, at your own discretion. Anything from a spiced up BLT to glazing the Canadian bacon for Eggs Benedict. Let your taste buds be your guide!
