This Million Dollar Bacon (or Millionaire Bacon recipe) is one of our family’s favorite brunch recipes and it’s so easy to make with just few ingredients!
Ok, guys. Things are about to get weird around here. Your resident vegetarian is about to break down a bacon recipe for you. It’s whatever. This is real life and in real life I share my house with meat-loving boys who graciously accommodate my veggie-eating ways so long as they get the occasional big fat dose of meat.
B and I saw this so-called Million Dollar Bacon (I think I’ve also seen it called Millionaire Bacon) on one of those shows we watch religiously. Was it Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives? Probably. At any rate, that was months ago and this weekend the inspiration struck to recreate it for our Sunday morning brunch based on whatever rough description they gave in the show.
In short, it’s bacon that sweet with a little heat and it’s a new fan favorite around here. Since we prefer cooking bacon in the oven anyway, this was super simple to make and everyone went crazy for it!
One of the things that’s great about this recipe is how easy it is, so you don’t have to be a whiz in the kitchen and it’s also kid-friendly. The little guys had so much fun helping out with this one!
And there you have it! Served up alongside homemade Belgian waffles and poached eggs this Million Dollar Bacon recipe was a hit. The heat of all the peppers tempers out the brown sugar and makes for a really yummy brunch treat.
Also, just as a side note I’ve been on a serious poached egg kick lately. It’s the only way I like to eat my eggs! So stay tuned and I promise to share my super easy method for making poached eggs sometime soon.
