Ingredients Nutrition

  • 12 lb bacon (8 slices)
  • 13 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 cups Original Bisquick® mix
  • 1 cup your favorite regular beer or 1 cup your favorite nonalcoholic beer
  • 2 eggs


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line cookie sheet with foil. Place wire rack on top of cookie sheet. Arrange bacon in single layer on top of rack. Bake 10 minutes.
  2. Sprinkle bacon with half the brown sugar. Bake 10 minutes longer. Turn bacon over; sprinkle with remaining brown sugar. Bake 10 to 15 minutes longer or until golden brown. Remove from rack. Cool completely, about 15 minutes. Crumble bacon into small pieces; set aside.
  3. Preheat griddle or skillet over medium-high heat or electric griddle to 375 degrees F; grease with vegetable oil or shortening.
