HONEY-GLAZED BAKED BACON
Yield: 12 pieces bacon
12 slices streaky bacon
2ml chopper chilies (optional)
1. Preheat your oven to 200°C. Cover your baking sheet in foil or parchment paper and place wire
rack on top.
2. Lay the bacon on the wire rack, making sure to spread the strips out.
3. Heat the honey until it is runny. Drizzle honey onto the strips of bacon.
4. Place in the middle of the oven for about 12 to 15 minutes. Around the 10
minute mark, start to regularly keep an eye on the bacon to see if it has cooked
enough (this will depend on the thickness of your bacon).
