Cheryl McKay's Easy Showstopper Bacon Recipe
If you’re planning to serve brunch over the holidays, it’s always nice to serve something a little different. Of course, that seems to be the busiest time of the year, so time is a precious commodity. Even if you plan to serve just a breakfast casserole and some kind of freshly baked muffins, biscuits, or cinnamon rolls, the following Cheryl McKay’s Easy Showstopper Bacon will be a nice accompaniment.
Cheryl is a busy flight attendant, and is traveling often – she usually flies the Honolulu trip, so lounging on the beach or at the pool is more on her mind that cooking. However, she loves to entertain friends when she is at home, and is an accomplished cook. She has worked out several easy recipes that are not only delicious, but that take very little time to make. This luscious bacon is one of them, and while good anytime of the year, it will draw raves from holiday guests at Christmas and New Year’s brunches. Thanks Cheryl for sharing this great easy recipe!
