Billionaire's Bacon...Tamed

Share your comments


Billionaire's Bacon is that glorious combination of bacon and brown sugar, where the whole is way more than the sum of the parts. The only downside to Billionaire's Bacon (if you ignore the calories and cholesterol) is that it's a mess to make. The bacon is greasy, because if you try to drain the fat on a paper towel, the paper towel becomes glued to the bacon, and clean-up is equally messy, with hardened sugar stuck to your pan or rack. Does that mean that you have to forgo this treat? No way! With a few Cool Tools and some good technique, you can make this whenever you want!
