Billionaires Bacon

While looking for something tasty to make we stumbled across this delicious recipe by Dan Pearson at Wild Fennel Co. - thank you very much :)

This dish is well worth the wait! Make more than you think you'll need... you'll regret it if you don't!


Mix the dark beer and maple syrup together. 

Lay the streaky bacon in a shallow dish and pour over the beer mixture. Cover and leave to marinate overnight in the fridge. 

Remove the bacon, pat dry and place on a greased baking tray. Strain the marinade and freeze it for next time.

Sprinkle the bacon generously with the Wild Fennel Co. Pocket Pepper and cook under a hot grill until crisp. 

Eat with avocado and a poached egg on toast, in a classic bacon sandwich, or as is straight from the grill!

Be sure to save any excess fat from cooking for Sunday potatoes... Enjoy!
