For those not in the know, Saucy Mama is a division of Barhyte Specialty Foods located in Pendleton, Oregon. They are the makers of fabulous mustards, marinades, and wing sauces. I've participated in a couple of Saucy Mama's contests in the past and I've enjoyed their products immensely. The stakes are especially high this year, as this contest is a qualifying event for The World Food Championships being held in Kissimmee, Florida!
My husband and I immediately tore into the Poblano Ranch Dressing and the Hatch Chili Mustard ... we couldn't wait for the official picture to be taken....
I'll share more about the giveaway in just a bit. First, let me share the some of the fun I've been having with these sauces. According to the rules I can only enter one official recipe, but I've been testing and trying the different sauces and I can't not show you some of the good eats!
Who doesn't love pulled pork? It's fabulous with a drizzle of Poblano Buttermilk Dressing!
A simple hot dog is made over-the-top good with a smear of Saucy Mama's Hatch Chili Mustard and some homemade ketchup made with Saucy Mama's Orange Habanero Wing Sauce.
Orange Habanero Candied Bacon. No words needed....
Today, I'll share this easy recipe for Orange Habanero Candied Bacon. It is a component of my final recipe, which is due the day after tomorrow. Yikes!
Orange Habanero Candied Bacon
1/3 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon freshly grated orange peel
1/3 cup Saucy Mama Orange Habanero Wing Sauce
12 slices thick-cut bacon
Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Line a sheet pan with parchment paper or foil. Spray a cooling rack with cooking spray and place in sheet pan.
Mix the brown sugar with the orange peel and place in a shallow bowl. Brush the both sides of each side of bacon with the wing sauce. Place the bacon in the bowl with the brown sugar and toss to coat. Make sure the bacon is evenly coated. Place the bacon in a single layer on top of the rack. Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until the bacon is slightly dark. Watch carefully after 20 minutes to make sure it doesn't burn. Carefully remove the bacon from the rack and allow it to cool on a sheet of parchment. The bacon will crisp as it cools.
Eat it as is, crumble it and top a donut, or put it on a sandwich -- the possibilities are endless!
