Deep Fried Bacon - need I say more?
Course: Deep Fried Awesomeness
- 1 lb thick sliced bacon
- 1/2 cup plus 3tbs flour
- 3/4 cup cream
- 2 eggs
- 4 tbs butter
- 20-30 saltines
- salt and pepper
- hot sauce
- 1 cup chicken broth
- 1 tbs worcestershire sauce
Frying the Bacon
I tried to make these with raw bacon and with partially cooked bacon. I found that partially cooked bacon worked the best. Since I wanted the bacon perfectly flat I used the microwave to partially cook the bacon. Place 4-6 strips of bacon on a paper towel lined plate. Then top with a nother piece of paper towel. Place in the microwave and cook on high for 3 minutes, remove and let cool.
Next dredge the cooled bacon in seasoned flour.
Then dredge it in an egg wash. To make the egg wash, mix two eggs with a 1/4 cup cream and a couple dashes of hot sauce.
Now dredge the egg covered bacon in crushed saltine crackers.
Place into a medium/high heat heavy bottom pan that is coated with vegetable oil.
Fry for about 2-4 minutes on each side. Cook until the bacon is golden brown on each side. Remove from the pan and let drain on a paper towel.
Making the Gravy
To make the gravy melt 4tbs of butter in a pan and whisk in 3tbs of flour. Cook until the flour turns slighly brown.
Then add 1cup of chicken broth, 1/2 cup of cream, 1 tbs of worcestershire, a dash of hot sauce and salt and pepper.
Heat until boiling and then reduce. Stirring frequently. Once it starts to thicken, remove from the heat and let sit for a couple of minutes.
Serve the chicken fried bacon with the gravy for a heart stopping meal that is amazing.
