Orange Ginger & Honey Bacon

Carole's Chatter: Orange, Ginger & Honey Bacon

I'll be doing something like this again soon.  It is calorific so be warned.


Bacon – thick cut would be best but I used streaky
Zest of an orange
Brown Sugar
Grated fresh ginger
Sprig of fresh rosemary (I don't think this really added anything)


Preheat your oven to quite hot say 200 degrees C (approx. 400F)

Put foil on the bottom of your baking dish or tray and then pop a wire rack over that.  This will save you a whole lot of clean up.

Brush each rasher with honey – I heated mine in the microwave so it was runny.

Mix together the zest, sugar and ginger and sprinkle it on each rasher.  Mine clumped a bit but still turned out tasty.

Cook for around 20 minutes until nice and done.  If you had thick cut bacon you might need a little more time.


  1. Yum, I love bacon!! The honey, ginger, and orange sound like a great combo.

  2. Sweet bacon isn’t really something done here but it sounds delicious

    Have a great week.

  3. I love bacon! Love the sound of this combo.

  4. I will be trying this. Sounds wonderful!
