It's that time of year again when we begin to indulge in seasonal favorites, and this beer-candied bacon is sure to become an overwhelming favorite. The sweet crisp of caramelized sugar and hints of chocolate and coconut from the deep flavor of our Castillo's Coconut Porter, paired with the savory taste of bacon we all know and love will have you and your guests coming back for seconds, (and probably thirds).
1 lb thick-cut bacon
½ cup dark brown sugar
⅓ cup Castillo's Coconut Porter
Preheat oven to 400*.
Line the baking sheet with aluminum foil and set a wire cooling on top. Lay bacon on top of a cooling rack.
Cook for 10 minutes.
Meanwhile, combine brown sugar and Coconut Porter in a small bowl. After cooking for ten minutes, remove the bacon and brush one side with the beer mixture. Flip the bacon and brush the other side with the mixture as well.
Return the bacon to the oven for another 10-12 minutes or until it is as crisp as you like it.
