Cornmeal-Crusted Bacon

Why just bake your bacon? Liven it up with a zesty cornmeal coating!

Bacon makes everything better. It’s the simple truth. From the aroma that wafts through the kitchen while it’s cooking to that first crunchy bite, there's something about bacon that makes it pure bliss. Plus, bacon goes with just about everything as well, even things you wouldn’t think of, like chocolate. If you’ve never tried chocolate-covered bacon, you’re in for a treat! But if you’re not quite ready to take that leap, ease in with this simple but scrumptious recipe for Spicy Cornmeal-Crusted Bacon.

Cornmeal-Crusted Bacon

For me, baking bacon is the way to go. My mom always fried hers up in a cast-iron skillet (and still does to this day). I’m just not a fan of the popping grease that comes along with that method. Baking it keeps things calm and clean in the kitchen.

Instead of plain baked bacon, I’m taking it a little further by dredging thick-cut bacon in a spicy cornmeal mixture. The cornmeal gives the bacon big crunch, while the chili powder gives it a little kick and the brown sugar adds a touch of sweetness. It’s salty, sweet and savory all in one bite!
