I love bacon. Probably wayyyy more than I should and I always seem to figure out a way to add bacon to everything I make. Last spring, Sues’ parents invited a bunch of the girls over for brunch. There was obviously tons of great food, but most importantly…there was bacon. The most delicious, perfect, tasty bacon I have ever had in my life. The reason you ask? Sues’ dad knows what’s up… he uses Fenugreek on bacon. I had never heard of Fenugreek before and had a difficult time finding it in stores, but this past Christmas Sues’ dad got me Fenugreek (along with some great black pepper too!). I immediately cooked up some bacon, and needless to say, I will never, ever, ever cook bacon without using Fenugreek. It is a “lesser known spice from the pea family” often found in Indian dishes. It has a sort of maple flavor. My Fenugreek is from Penzys Spices and I suggest every kitchen have a jar!
It is perfect!
