Bacon Peanut Brittles

Because “everything tastes better with bacon”, the crazy folks at The Redhead restaurant in Manhattan have created a peanut brittle with smoky bacon flavor.  These are not the peanut brittle that comes in shards of toffee-like confection that you’d serve as a dessert, they’re more like candied peanuts but with a subdued smoky bacon flavor that makes them a great savory snack.

Esquire magazine says the unique combination of peanuts, maple syrup, cayenne, thyme & bacon all tossed together and roasted until the tacky bacon bonds with the crunchy peanuts may be “the best beer nut in America.”
