Who wouldn’t love crunchy salty bacon wrapped in a candied layer of bourbon blood orange marmalade? If you’ve got #brunchgoals then this is your bacon recipe! The best part is that it takes minutes to create and it’s so easy it feels like cheating.

This recipe from Laura Ann Jams is an absolute game changer on the brunch table. I’m not really a fan of sweet bacon but there was something magical that happened in that oven. The marmalade turned into a salty candy shell that actually enhanced the bacon flavor. I tossed on a bit of smokey pepper flakes and it was a party in my mouth! There is a lovely balance of smoke, sweet, salt and sugar that will make you wish you’d made more.

Smokey, salty and slightly sweet this Bourbon Blood Orange Bacon recipe will exceed all your brunch goals.

INGREDIENTS

DIRECTIONS

Preheat oven to 350°F.

  1. Lay the strips of bacon over a foil lined cookie sheet.
  2. Brush an even layer of jam over each piece of bacon.
  3. Lightly sprinkle with pepper flakes. 
  4. Bake for approximately 15 minutes.  If the bacon hasn’t crisped up to your liking, allow to bake for another 5-10 minutes, checking for desired doneness.
  5. Allow them to cool on a metal cooling rack or silicone mat, do not put them on paper towels. Trust me, you’ll regret it if you do.
