Bacon brittle

– 1 pkg bacon
– 1/4 tsp salt
– 1/8 tsp baking soda

– 1 1/3c sugar
– 1/2c water
– 1/4c light corn syrup
– 2.5 Tablespoons unsalted butter

1) Fry, bake or microwave bacon, dry and chop up. Add 1/4 tsp. salt, 1/4 tsp & 1/8 tsp baking soda. Set aside.
2) Grease a sheet pan or place a silpat mat on the pan.
3) In a pan: 1 1/3c sugar, 1/2c water, 1/4c light corn syrup, 2.5 Tablespoons unsalted butter.
4) Cook for 12 min. on high heat until you start to see caramel notes on the edges of the liquid. Continue to cook until you get more of a light color change.
5) When it is all over caramel quickly add bacon mix and stir quickly and in invert onto your pan. Quickly smooth out mix and let cool.

I think I’m going to add nuts too.

Very important: To store you must store in a plastic container or the condensation of a bag or any other material will turn your toffee to goo. Do not store in the refrigerator. Don’t worry about the bacon going bad if not stored in the fridge….this will also turn it into goo too.
