Greetings fellow bacon lovers.
Some days it is really good to be on a Ketogenic diet. Because, while bacon is frowned upon on most diets, if you are doing Keto, it is not only allowed, it is encouraged. It’s a pretty sweet deal.
So today I thought I’d share a bacon dessert.
Yes, I really did say “bacon” and “dessert” in the same sentence. This is an easy, two ingredient recipe for sugar-free candied bacon. It might sound too simple to be good, but I have to tell you, it’s pure heaven.
So let’s get to it.
You start by pre-heating the oven to 325 degrees F and getting out a large cookie sheet.
You’ll need a package of bacon and 1/2 cup Swerve or equivalent granulated sweetener.
Pour the sweetener into a large plate and press the slices into the sweetener until covered on both sides.
Cook the bacon on the cookie sheet in two batches. Bake for 20-25 minutes, depending on desired doneness. Keep a close eye on the bacon for the last few minutes, because it will go from crispy to burnt very quickly.
Drain the cooked bacon on paper towels.
And you’re done!
You’ll have some tasty candied bacon with zero carbs. How many other desserts can say the same? So I can almost guarantee that you will love it. Because, you know what they say:
If you don’t like candied bacon, then you are just wrong.Print
