Toasted Pecans With Bacon

This recipe consists of 2 easy steps. You cook down the bacon first, getting it to 80% of the crispiness you want in the final product. Pro tip: You want to make the bacon relatively crispy, even if you are one of those weirdos that like their bacon chewy. Reason being, this dish will be served cold, and no one likes cold chewy bacon!! So, once that bacon is just about done and you have a lot of the bacon grease in your pan add in the pecans. Toss them around in the grease and let them cook. The best way to tell when they are perfectly toasted is the smell they give off. They will have a nice toasty smell. Trust me, you’ll know! It should take about 3-5 minutes on medium heat.

Season and Serve

With black pepper the flavor really changes depending on whether you add the seasoning prior to cooking, during cooking, or afterwards. The most assertive flavor comes from adding it after, and that is what I would recommend for this dish. Of course you want to go with freshly cracked pepper if you have it, and coarsely ground! Now if you want to get wild and give this dish a sweet twist you can add sugar free maple syrup! Just add 1/4 cup at the very end and cook on low heat for 1-2 minutes, making sure everything gets a little maple kiss. Show up to your next dinner party with a bowl full of this impressive combo!
