Bacon Crumble

Have you tried those new packaged salad toppings you can buy?  I picked up one that was craisins and candied nuts that I just fell in love with.  Do you want another over the top salad topping?  Try this bacon crumble.  You can store it for weeks and use it in other creative ways like topping on a chocolate cupcake, a Hawaiian Pizza, chocolate fudge or chocolate bark.  Sprinkle it on French Toast.  What creative ways can you come up with to use it?  Everything is better with bacon. 

Bacon Crumble

Pound of bacon
1/4 cup brown sugar
4 tablespoon water
1 egg white
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/8 teaspoon cayenne

Cook bacon and set aside to cool completely or you can use the pre-cooked bacon (I love the no mess and time saving of it). Once cooled, coarsely crumble bacon; set aside and heat oven to 300 degrees F.

Place sugar and water in a pot and heat until sugar is dissolved. Toss crumbled bacon in sugar syrup to coat. Pass coated bacon through a strainer to drain excess sugar syrup.
Add egg white to a bowl and beat until fluffy and foamy. Add in black pepper and cayenne. Whisk to combine. Add in crumbled bacon and coat it well.

Spread crumbled bacon on a parchment lined baking sheet and bake for 30 minutes at 300 degrees.   Remove from oven and let cool, then crumble bacon one last time.

Have a blessed Sunday.  Be happy and may God bless you and yours.
