  • 1 stick butter
  • 3 slices bacon
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar


  • 1
    Lay bacon out on a baking sheet and cover each slice with some brown sugar totaling approximately 1/4 cup of brown sugar (a little over a tablespoon on each slice).
  • 2
    Bake in preheated oven at 350°F until crispy and slightly brown on the edges. Be careful because the sugar will burn quickly!
  • 3
    Chop bacon as small as you can and mix with softened butter until uniformly mixed.
  • 4
    Shape butter into a stick using plastic wrap and store in the fridge until hardened.
  • 5
    Serve on toast, bagels, baked potato, steak, burgers, or corn on the cob. Fry an egg in it, saute some onions with it, use it in a brownie recipe. It's so good you might even want to take a bath in it (Not recommended)

More About This Recipe

  • Bacon and butter tastes good together? Who woulda thought?

    Oh yeah, pretty much anyone.

    This recipe contains only three ingredients, but they are three of the best ingredients around! They come together to form a Candied Bacon Butter you can keep in your fridge and use to enhance almost anything you cook or eat in the next few days. I say only a few days because you will be lucky if it even lasts that long!

    Put it on toast, a bagel, English muffin, baked potato, corn, fry an egg in it, cook a burger or steak with it – you may even want to take a bath in it, it’s THAT good.

    Step one, place sugar on bacon and put in the oven. Yum!

    The sugar melts and forms a crisp candy coating on the bacon. After it cools, chop it all up.

    Then just mix it in to a stick of soft butter.

    I like to form mine back into a stick, but you could put it into a container or roll it into a log if you wanted.

    A perfect addition to breakfast, and a nice indulgent treat on a lazy weekend morning.
