Chicken Fried Bacon Appetizer Recipe with Gravy ~ From MissintheKitchen.com

I have had Chicken Fried Bacon on my list to try for quite sometime. I saw a Facebook friend had tried it as an appetizer at a restaurant and knew I would love it.

One of my favorite things about this recipe blog is being an ambassador for Petit Jean Meats. I grew up loving all of their products and their bacon is hands down, the best ever.

Petit Jean Meats Pepper Bacon ~ MissintheKitchen.comI used the Petit Jean Meats Pepper Bacon for this, it’s thick cut and holds up well to the batter. I love their bacon so much that I wrote a post on How To Cook Bacon in the oven

I used this method and baked it for about 15 minutes, about half way through for thick cut bacon. I drained the bacon on paper towels and let it cool for about 15 minutes.How to Make Chicken Fried Bacon ~ Recipe from missinthekitchen.comI dredged it in seasoned flour and then dipped it in an egg and milk mixture. I dredged it back through the flour, just like I do Chicken Fried Steak Bites or Chicken Fried Steak Sandwiches.

I deep fried it in an iron skillet and drained it on paper towels. It cooked super fast, about 1 minute per side.  I had been putting off making this because I thought it would be a pain, but it really wasn’t.

I made a quick batch of gravy with the bacon drippings and it was phenomenal. Right up there with one of the best things ever. Seriously epic!

The crunchy coating is just like a chicken fried steak. The bacon is perfectly crisp without being crumbly. Dip it in a bit of gravy and oh my, my….

Chicken Fried Bacon BLT Recipe ~ MissintheKitchen.com

My sister in law came by when I was frying it up and mentioned that it would also make an insanely delicious BLT. For the record, she was right! My husband was in the hay field, so I decided that would be a great lunch for him.

Just when I thought a BLT couldn’t be any better. Oh.My.Word! Now I’m thinking I need to try it on a grilled burger or try this biscuit recipe for an epic breakfast sandwich.

If you are into epic BLTs, you are going to want to give this Jalapeño Barbecue Bacon a try also. You will not be disappointed. We love these Easy Bacon Stuffed Mushrooms for a delicious appetizer.

I know this isn’t the most healthy thing to be eating but all things in moderation, right? I won’t be making this on a daily basis, but it is seriously something you have to try.
