Sriracha-Candied Bacon

It's certainly no secret - I have a hunka hunka burning love for BACON. I've put it in cookies, soups, dips, wrapped it around spring rolls and apples, dipped it in chocolate and of course, devoured copious amounts while standing in the kitchen cooking breakfast. My newest endeavor was to try my hand at candying some porky goodness. I'm a serious bacon-lover and was a tad skeptical of putting anything on my dear bacon before cooking it - but I took a leap of faith y'all and am so happy I did!! This Sriracha-Candied Bacon is the bee's knees. It's up there with unicorns and rainbows, trust me.

The ingredient list is short and sweet {& spicy} - honey, Sriracha, soy sauce and brown sugar.

And bacon of course! This recipe for Sriracha-Candied Bacon calls for 1/2lb. of bacon, but if you want to do more just double or triple {or quadruple} the recipe. The term "the more the merrier" fits this recipe to a tee!
