Once you start, it’s hard to stop! These SPICED BACON NUTS are addictive!
Before every road trip, I make up a batch of spiced nuts. Each batch is almost always different because I just throw in whatever sounds good at the time. This time, I thought bacon would make a great addition to my spiced nuts. They aren’t super spicy because I added a bit of brown sugar, but if you are super adventurous or love spicy foods skip the brown sugar.
These nuts would be great to take to the big game or Sunday football parties. Hubbyman says these nuts are pure evil. I caught him with a cold beer and bowl of these nuts while he was watching tv the other night. He almost wouldn’t share his bowl with me, until I threatened to not share the recipe with him!

I was thinking of making a “Bacon Lover” gift basket for my son for the holidays and I think these would make an awesome addition!! I might even slip in a recipe card…or keep a secret so he’ll have to call me! LOL
Oh my gosh how did I not ever think of this. I’m thinking holidays and parties and I pinned this to my appetizer and party food. Great great great idea.
