Marinate your bacon?

Friends tell me of a restuarant on the Oregon coast of the town Newport where the bacon is fabulous. According to the clerk the bacon is marinated in a homemade marinade that includes cayenne pepper. Any one ever marinate their bacon?

SO long as it is still in slab form, sure, marinate away. I still like good 'ol apple wood smoked though.

I have heard of brusing bacon slices with mustard, sprinkling them with brown sugar, and then oven frying them. Heard it was really good but haven't tried it yet.

We do something similar at work. Lay out the bacon on a sheet pan, and sprinkle brown sugar and cracked black pepper over the bacon. MMMMMM Good eatin'!

I like the mustard idea. I might have to give that a try. Maybe a specialty sandwich. Hot ham and swiss with a mustard-brown sugar pepper bacon? Or sub out hot turkey? On sourdough? Please don't get me started!

I use our Cracked Pepper dry rub or just freshly cracked pepper. there is something about the bite of black pepper with the wonderfullness of bacon that I love.

One of my favorite sandwiches is a bacon, pear, and arugla with a bleu cheese schmeer. Got that one from Caprial Pence's first cookbook. My first girlfriend and I use to offer that at our restaurant for lunch. That was way back when but I still make the sammy to this day.

Then what, Allen? You bake it? What oven temp? Do you bake it on a rack or leave it flat on the pan?
