We had you at BACON: Chicken Fried Bacon Food Pr0n

I had a package of bacon in the fridge that was begging me to deep fry it this morning,
so because I always do what the bacon tells me…

I more or less followed this recipe:
http://allrecipes.com//Recipe/crispy-deep-fried-bacon/

The basics are this:
Preheat your oven to 350.
Heat up oil in a deep fryer (or large dutch oven) to 375.

Cut bacon in half.
Dip slices in milk/egg mixture.
Dip bacon slices, one at a time, into the flour,
then place on a rack or sheet with paper towels (do NOT stack slices).
(I did the deep fry double-dip method – look it up)

When oil is up to 350-375, drop slices into the oil, only frying 4 or 5 slices at a time.
Fry for 2-3 minutes on one side, then turn the bacon over and fry for another 2-3 minutes until golden brown.
Then put the fried bacon onto a foil lined baking sheet and bake @ 350 for about 7-15 minutes, depending on how you like your bacon.

After removing from the oven, season as desired with salt and/or pepper, etc.

I highly recommend serving with a side of maple syrup for dipping. πŸ™‚Β 

Alternately, you can shake on powdered sugar and then you have Beigconets! (pronounced BACON+YAYS!).
(with apologies to Cafe Du Monde)
