1 cup flour
1 cup corn flour (not corn meal or corn starch)
1 tablespoon salt
1 tablespoon black pepper
1 can evaporated milk
1 pound thick cut bacon
canola oil


Heat oil in a large, heavy pan to 375 degrees F.

Combine the flours, salt, and pepper in a large shallow bowl or tray. Place the milk into a separate bowl.

Coat each bacon slice with the flour mixture, then dip in the milk, then repeat with more flour. Fry in the hot oil until golden and crisp. Remove with a slotted spoon and drain on paper towels.

Serve with dipping sauces like ranch dressing, country-style gravy, ketchup, etc.

REVIEW: 5 star recipe rating

Unbelievable. This is SO good. Not good FOR you, but good! The coating maintained its crispness and this would be great with a variety of dipping sauces. Could serve as an appetizer or even a meal (or on a sandwich as one reviewer tried!)

Wow. This was just WOW! Did I say wow? This was gone in a flash. Served it at breakfast this morning with biscuits and gravy. It's fantastic dipped in gravy!
