SWEET & SPICY NUTELLA-COATED BACON!

Bacon lovers rejoice! Nutella lovers rejoice! This may be the greatest pairing since Reese’s gave us the peanut butter cup!


According to the Gothamist website, which linked from a number of other sources, world Nutella day is coming up – February 5th to be exact, and there are lots of ways to celebrate – this one seems the most over the top!

The official website http://www.nutelladay.com – offers tons of recipes, the history of Nutella, and lots of pictures…what a place to spend the day!

Here is the recipe Gothamist osted, for “Sweet and Spicy Nutella-Coated Bacon.”

1 tablespoon light brown sugar

1 teaspoon chili powder

1 teaspoon ground black pepper

Vegetable oil cooking spray

6 thick slices bacon (1/2 to 3/4 pound)

3 tablespoons Nutella

Fleur de sel or another coarse salt

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Combine brown sugar, chili powder and black pepper in a small bowl and set aside.

Spray a rimmed baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray. Arrange bacon slices on baking sheet, making sure they do not overlap. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes, depending on desired doneness, then remove from oven and carefully flip bacon slices.

Sprinkle each slice liberally with sugar-pepper mixture. Return to oven and bake for an additional 8 to 10 minutes. Cool bacon slices on paper towels until approximately room temperature.

When bacon has cooled, place Nutella into a small bowl and microwave on high for approximately 15 to 20 seconds, until softened. Transfer bacon slices to a piece of parchment paper on a baking sheet or large plate. Using a silicon brush or icing spatula, lightly spread Nutella onto the top of each bacon slice. Place plate into refrigerator and allow Nutella to harden. Once coating is firm to the touch, sprinkle with fleur de sel and serve.

Variations:

• Reduce the amount of black pepper to 1/2 teaspoon and add 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon and 1/8 teaspoon ground red (cayenne) pepper to the spice mixture.

• To make a European Elvis sandwich, spread the top of one slice of bread lightly with honey, top with the coated bacon and thin slices of banana, then close with a second slice of bread.
