How To Make Deep Fried Bacon

Steve Frost/Thinkstock

Ok, so yesterday I do a story about an apparatus that is designed to help us curb our appetites and now, today, this?  What is the matter with you Chip?  Huh?  Let’s face it, you can almost never go wrong with deep frying anything.

There are some exceptions, I suppose, however, I just can’t think of any at the moment.  Oh, it’s not just a matter of dropping slices of bacon into a hot pool of grease.  There is a method to the madness.  My tongue was very thankful, my arteries were not so appreciative.

So here’s what you need for 8 servings

3 eggs

½ cup milk

1 pound thick sliced bacon, cut in half

3 cups all purpose flour

Salt and pepper to taste

2 cups of vegetable oil (for frying)

And here’s what you do…

Whisk together the eggs and milk in a bowl until smooth. Separate the bacon strips, and soak in the milk mixture for 30 minutes.

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Heat oil in deep skillet to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).

  2. Whisk together the flour, salt, and pepper in a separate bowl. Remove the bacon from the egg mixture, and toss with the flour to coat. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil.

  3. Fry the bacon strips 3 to 5 slices at a time until golden brown, about 4 minutes. Drain on a paper towel-lined plate. Once all of the bacon has cooked, place onto the prepared baking sheet, and bake in the preheated oven until crispy, about 7 minutes.

Enjoy…responsibility. :)
