Bobby Flay's Mango-Glazed Bacon
I saw a segment on this morning's "The Early Show" for oven-cooked bacon. Chef Flay(?) put a glaze on the bacon. It really looked good. Can you tell what the glaze was? I turned on the TV late and was not viewing it when the ingredients were mentioned.
As far as we can tell, if you turn on a television set in this country, you're either going to see Emeril Lagasse or Bobby Flay. In your case, it was Bobby Flay, a regular on the Saturday Early Show. He took up the Chef-on-a-Shoestring challenge of creating a meal for four for under $30, and stuck with breakfast.
On his menu were Smoked Salmon Quesadillas; Green Eggs (scrambled with green chili, cilantro, and green onions); Thick-sliced Bacon with Mango Glaze; and Cinnamon and Star Anise-scented French Toast with Maple-Tangerine-Raspberry Syrup and Crème Fraîche – basically the classic all-American breakfast that's been done to death.
You can always find the Early Show recipes at the CBS Web site, but we're happy to make the bacon recipe available here, as well.
1 cup sugar
Preheat oven to 375°F (190°C). Place sugar and vinegar in a small saucepan and cook over high heat until the sugar is melted and the mixture has reduced by half. Add the mango and cook for 5 minutes. Transfer the mixture to a food processor and process until smooth. Strain the mixture into a bowl.
Place the bacon on a baking sheet and using a pastry brush, brush both sides with some of the glaze, bake until just crisp, about 10 minutes.
