Baked Breaded Bacon

My hubby bought bacon while grocery shopping.  Yep,  he does that!  I didn't know what I was going to cook tonight.  While rummaging around in the fridge, I found it. I have bacon.  What am I going to do with it?   I remembered Nel of The Paper Cup Kitchen  mentioned cooking bacon in the oven,  on her facebook.  I don't recall the instructions for it but do remember thinking that my Sweet Grandma and Mama did that!  I also remembered them breading the bacon with flour.  Flour........I used seasoned flour the other day when I fried fish.  Oh My Gosh,  this is really sounding good to me now.  Now I know what I have to do.  I hope you like it like we did.  These were very thin pieces of bacon and did very well.  Boys kept coming back for more.  I broke the bacon in halves.  One boy had 6 pieces, one had 4 and the other doesn't like bacon....I know can you imagine?

Baked Breaded Bacon

12 oz or however much you want to cook,  low sodium bacon
1 to 2 cups seasoned flour...any breading mix will work, or make your own
I used Kentucky Kernel Seasoned Flour

Spray cookie sheets. I used 2 for 12 oz.
Put flour on a plate, in bowl or plastic bag.
Coat bacon completely.
Place on greased cookie sheets.
Place in COLD oven.
Turn oven on to 350 degrees.
Cook for 10 minutes and remove from oven.
Flip the bacon over and put back in oven, turning pans around.
Cook for another 3 - 5 minutes, if it is not done, continue cooking and check every minute or two, so it doesn't burn.
Take out when done..browned and crisp.
Place on paper towels to absorb excess grease.

Oh my! I don't know whether to say pass the bacon or call 911! Seriously, since my sons and grandkids are not within driving distance, I would eat it ALL, and then I would have to call 911... I'll just come back and take a peek once in a while :)

I have never heard of breaded bacon before and where I live, bacon is considered a food group. LOL

Thanks so much for linking this recipe at Foodie Friday. Now... where shall I pin this?
