crispy fried bacon

Crispy fried bacon isn’t one of the most complex recipes, but when dealing with hot oil and greasy foods, it’s nice to have a template to start with. Also depending on your hot oil setup starting with a known methodology helps to save oil cleanup or changing, as burnt flavoring doesn’t suit any recipe. Yolanda at allrecipes.com gives a nice brief recipe and as a bonus allrecipe.com includes the nutritional content. The phrasing of ‘nutritional content’ when referring to deep fried bacon is on the more humorous side, but living in California gives one a perspective that it is possible for someone out there to possibly marketeer crispy fried bacon someday into a health food. But as of now it will sadly remain on the deadly foods list, and continue to delight all that try it with a nice and satisfying crunch.

Ingredients

  • 3 eggs
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 pound thick sliced bacon, cut in half
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 cups vegetable oil for frying

Directions

  1. Whisk together the eggs and milk in a bowl until smooth. Separate the bacon strips, and soak in the milk mixture for 30 minutes.
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Heat oil in deep skillet to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  3. Whisk together the flour, salt, and pepper in a separate bowl. Remove the bacon from the egg mixture, and toss with the flour to coat. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil.
  4. Fry the bacon strips 3 to 5 slices at a time until golden brown, about 4 minutes. Drain on a paper towel-lined plate. Once all of the bacon has cooked, place onto the prepared baking sheet, and bake in the preheated oven until crispy, about 7 minutes.

chicken fried bacon

Anything good is deep fried. Or so the saying goes. Chicken fried deep fried bacon, would lead us to believe that the saying is true. How can one argue against something that sounds so full of crunchy goodness, and is by all common knowledge a ‘heart attack waiting to happen’? People know it’s not good for them yet they would eat it anyway and tempt death? Would you risk your life for broccoli or a mung bean? Now follow some commen comments and you would be lead to believe all that enjoy such a treat would be evil. Yet have you noticed how polite, happy and friendly some of the diners that service this type of eats are? Then again the argument could be made that this type of behavior is only true because nobody lives long enough to become more bitter with life. What better accents a dish of deep fried fat, but with a dipping sauce of more fat? OK even I admit this is a bit over the top, but everything has it’s compliment.

This either means they have a crack investigations department or replace a lot of road crews due to health insurance reasons. But with crunchy eats as a topic, anything deep fried is good …
