Heaven in Your Mouth {Foodie Friday}

Pecans. Brown Sugar. Yummy Goo. Bacon. Put it all together and do you have?

Heaven in your mouth.


A precious supporter, friend and former student involved in our ministry at Carolina posted this recipe and it’s become a Hurdle fave to serve for breakfast, as an appetizer or chocolate dipped dessert!

039Praline Pecan Bacon:

1 lb. Quality Thick Cut Bacon

4 Tbsp Steen’s Cane Syrup (I didn’t have any so I subbed 2 Tbsp honey and 2 Tbsp Karo Syrup)

3/4 Cup Brown Sugar

3/4 Cup Pecans, toasted and chopped

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

Place a wire rack on an aluminum foil lined sheet tray. Combine the pecans and brown sugar. Lay the bacon side by side on the rack, place in the preheated oven for about 15-20 minutes, or until the bacon is sizzling and starting to brown around the edges. The goal is for the bacon to cook about 3/4 of the way through before adding the topping.

Push the partially cooked bacon as close together as possible on the rack and brush with the cane syrup, this will give the topping something to stick to. Cover generously with the Pecan/brown sugar topping. Place back in the oven for about 10 minutes more or until the topping is bubbly and the bacon is good and brown. Let cool. As the Praline Bacon cools it will set up and have a nice chewy bite to it.

I prepared it in the morning so the bacon smell would dissipate. Then I kept them in the fridge and warmed them in the oven just before we served it on the fondue bar! It’s great as a stand alone, but dip this mess in chocolate and you’ll have to close your eyes to enjoy.



Kitty Hurdle blogs at Joel and Kitty:

“After getting married in August of 2007, spending an amazing 5 years doing ministry in Columbia, South Carolina and adopting two children; we moved to Oxford, Mississippi to continue serving as full-time missionaries with Campus Crusade for Christ. This is more of a memoir of family life and ministry, than a trophy case of happy people sitting around smiling for pictures all day long. We hope you’ll see Jesus through our good, bad and humorously ugly.

We strive to glorify God, yet fail miserably and find comfort in knowing that our debts have been paid and we have been set free. Join us on our wild adventure of Following Him & Loving Them!”
