While traveling in New England I was lucky to find a treasure at the Rt28 Diner in South Yarmouth, MA. This tiny diner along Rt28 is a gem and the food was excellent. I was especially impressed with one side dish in particular, the frosted bacon. Combining the salty bacon and the sweetness of the frosting makes for an extra special breakfast treat.
I decided to try and duplicate their frosted bacon and viola! Perfect! This was too easy and I’m surprised I haven’t thought of this myself being that I’m always going back and forth between salty and sweet food. I’m sharing the recipe with you because I know most of us just can’t hop in the car and head to Massachusetts. Enjoy this along with your breakfast or alone, either way you will be able to experience the treasure I found right at home.
