December 30th is National Bacon Day.

These lollipops from Wright Brand Bacon are not kid stuff.

Slow-cured, thick-cut bacon is skewered and grilled to crispy tender perfection, then glazed with ancho pepper honey for a little sweet heat.

Unlike candy lollipops, you’ll want more than one. all around.

The only fly in the ointment: You need an outdoor grill to finish the recipe.

Prep time is 30 minutes, cook time os 30 minutes.

Ingredients For 12-15 Lollipops

    2. REMOVE the bacon from the package still stacked together. Slice the stacked bacon into 1″ wide blocks, then skewer the blocks with a wooden skewer. Place on a sheet pan and roast the bacon pops for 30 minutes, or until the fat has rendered. While cooking the bacon…

    3. HEAT the honey in a small sauce pan and stir in the adobo and ancho pepper. Heat on medium low for five minutes. Give the bacon a generous coat of the adobo honey (like you would baste a turkey) until the outside is sticky.

    4. REMOVE the bacon from the pan and place on a clean plate. Chill for 20 minutes in the refrigerator. While the lollipops are chilling…

    5. HEAT an outdoor grill to medium high and grill the bacon for 5-10 minutes, or until peak crispiness is achieved. Remember to baste the bacon with the adobo honey while on the grill.
