Beautiful. Crazy. Bacon can’t help but amaze me. We found this new recipe at Allrecipes.com, and it might as well have cowboy boots and down-home roots because it’s country.
Country Fried Floured Bacon
Breaded and fried bacon is sure to set the tone for a great summer of sunshine, country music and quality company. Wow your barbecue guests or hog it all; it’s so good no one could blame you.
1 pound thick sliced bacon
2 cups half-and-half cream
2 cups flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/4 pinch white sugar
2 cups vegetable oil for frying
- Place the bacon in a shallow dish with the half-and-half. Let the bacon soak for a minimum of 30 minutes, but no more than 2 hours. Good things take time.
- Combine the flour, salt, pepper, and sugar and stir until blended. When the bacon has finished soaking, remove it from the half-and-half, and shake off the excess. Press each piece into the flour mixture to coat, then set aside. If desired, you can place a sheet of wax paper between the rows of bacon once the plate is covered. However, the flour does a good job of keeping the bacon from sticking to each other.
- Heat the vegetable oil in a deep skillet over medium-low heat. Fry the bacon in batches until browned and cooked to desired degree of crispness, 2 to 3 minutes. Drain on a paper towel.
