I’ve always like to step out of my comfort zone, to avoid what is safe and expected, and to try never to be a stick in the mud. In an effort to do so, and in appreciation of all the Bacon Fans that I am surrounded by, at home, at work, on Twitter and Facebook, ect. I like to try out new bacon involved recipes, though I don’t typically consume it. So mostly for my husband and my brother, and anyone else passionately dedicated to both bacon and Buffalo Chicken Wings, I present you with Buffalo Bacon Chips.
This pretty simple- not much of a recipe, just some directions.
- Center Cut Thick Sliced Bacon (amount is up to you, and the appetite of your guests)
- Buffalo Sauce
Preheat the oven to 400. Place rimmed baking sheet in oven to preheat. Cut bacon slices into 1/4′s and gently dredge them thru flour. Arrange on the preheated baking sheet and return to oven for 6 minutes. After the 6 minutes, remove the baking sheet from the oven and flip bacon to opposite sides. Return to the oven and continue cooking for about 6 minutes, or until crisp. Place the buffalo sauce in a shallow bowl. Carefully pull out the bacon from the oven and with tongs dip the chips into the buffalo sauce. Arrange the bacon chips on a plate and serve immediately.
Sir Wes and I did go back and forth over the size to cut the bacon, he of course liked the bigger, longer cuts (cutting a slice in 1/3s) but I gravitated to the more squared off chip. I also tried to consider that one may not be able to have just one…. thinking of your belt holes Honey…
A great Superbowl snack- super easy and possibly the most exciting part of the 2013 Superbowl (aside from the commercials possibly).
Enjoy and Happy Pigging out!
