You’re an adult now, meaning you can have candy and hard cider for breakfast -- with thick, crispy bacon as their vehicle -- whenever you want. But how!? Good question. The answer: this recipe. With Crispin Hard Cider we combined sizzling bacon, brown sugar, hard apple cider, and some apple pie spices to create a delicate, sugary glaze to make the kind of candied bacon that will surely become a staple of any breakfast... or brunch or brinner, for that matter (because you're an adult, remember?).
