Zippy Praline Bacon

Rated as 4.67 out of 5 Stars

"We live on a lake and have many overnight guests, so I serve brunch often. I'm always looking for recipes to enhance the usual eggs and bacon. My husband came home from a men's brunch raving about this one, and the hostess shared the recipe. Just be sure to make more than you think you might need...everybody wants seconds. -Myrt Pflannkuche, Pell City, Alabama"

This recipe is fantastic, but instead of using it as a breakfast treat, try it as an appetizer. Wrap the bacon around bread sticks, then roll them in the rest of the mixture and bake them. Rea...

DELICIOUS. I got this recipe from a friend before and it is awesome. The combination of the sugar and chili powder is awesome. Beware taking the bacon out of the oven - lots of grease to drip!
