Orange Glazed Canadian Bacon
Instead of serving the usual bacon, prepare this recipe that calls for Canadian bacon instead. It's a special brunch recipe that's always well liked.
6 to 8 servings
1 1/4 pounds Canadian bacon
1 1/2 cups orange juice
6 tablespoons brown sugar, divided
1/2 teaspoon ground mustard
1/2 teaspoon ground cardamom
1/4 teaspoon coarsely ground pepper
3 bay leaves
Preheat oven to 325°F (163°C). In an 11 x 7-inch baking pan coated with cooking spray, arrange bacon in two rows, overlapping the slices.
In a small saucepan, combine the orange juice, 4 tablespoons brown sugar, mustard, cardamom and pepper until blended. Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring frequently. Boil for 1 minute. Pour over bacon; arrange bay leaves on top.
Bake, uncovered, for 20 to 25 minutes. Discard bay leaves and all but 1/4 cup pan juices. Sprinkle remaining brown sugar over bacon.
Broil 4 inches from the heat for 3 to 5 minutes or until bacon is glazed and bubbly. Serve immediately.
