Candied Bacon

Found this interesting recipe on a message board:

Candy Bacon

8 slices bacon
1/2 c brown sugar
1 T chili powder 

Preheat oven to 350. Combine sugar and chili, then press bacon slices into the sugar mix, shaking 
off any extra. Line bacon on a cookie sheet. Bake for 10-15 minutes until bacon is crispy. Let cool,
 carefully blot with paper towels, and eat.

  Hello I hope you can help.  I am looking for a recipe for baking buffalo ribs.  I am looking for 
one that is fairly easy to prepare preferably and I have found very little to do with cooking buffalo 
ribs specifically.  My boyfriend brought home the wrong package from the store thinking they were pork
(smile)  Thanks as usual.


Hi Liz,

Try this. You can use BBQ sauce instead of the mustard, if you like.


Mustard Buffalo Short Ribs

4 lbs. buffalo ribs 
1/3 c. prepared mustard (I just use regular yellow mustard) 
1 T. sugar 
2 T. lemon juice 
1 t. salt 
1/2 t. pepper 
2 cloves of crushed garlic 
4 medium onions, sliced 

Place buffalo ribs in shallow baking dish. Mix mustard, sugar, lemon juice, salt, pepper, and garlic; 
pour over the ribs. Top with onions. Cover and refrigerate, turning ribs occasionally, for 4 to 24 hours. 

Place ribs with marinade and onions in Dutch oven or any other oven proof baking dish, and cook at 
350 degrees for about 2 hours. Check for tenderness. Cook longer, if necessary, for 10-minute intervals 
until the ribs are tender. 

*Another way is to just put it all in a crock pot and cook for 8-10 hours on low. 

*Instead of the mustard marinade, try favorite BBQ sauce and spice it up with onions and garlic.

  I am going to fry up a mess of fish and would like the recipe for beer batter.  Do you have one?  
  Please advise.  Thank you in advance.  Betty

Hi Betty,

There are dozens. See below for a few.


  Beer  Batter  For  Fish

  1 c. flour
  2 tsp. salt
  2 tsp. paprika
  1 tsp. curry powder
  1 can beer

   Stir all together.  Dip pieces of fish and deep fry.  
  Beer  Batter  For  Fish

  1 c. flour
  1 egg
  1 c. beer
  1 tsp. baking powder
  1 tsp. salt

   Beat egg and stir all ingredients well.  Coat fish and deep fry or pan fry.  
  Beer  Batter  For  Fish

  1 3/4 c. flour
  2 tsp. Lawry's seasoned salt
  2 tsp. baking powder
  2 eggs
  1 can beer
  Mixture of flour, onion salt and garlic salt

 Mix batter ingredients together.  Roll fish in flour mixture; dip in batter, deep fry.  
 Covers 2 pounds of fish.  

   3/4 c. stale beer
  1/2 tsp. baking powder
  1 egg
  1/2 tbsp. salt
  1 c. Bisquick
  1/4 c. flour

  Mix ingredients to form a batter.  Wash fish and dry on a paper towel (the dryer the better).
  Dip fish into batter.  Drop into grease.  
  Beer  Batter  For  Shrimp  Or  Fish

  4 or 5 lbs. peeled and deveined shrimp or fish fillets
  2 c. flour
  2 c. yellow cornmeal
  2 eggs, beaten
  Salt, pepper, and garlic powder to taste
  Approximately 2 cans of beer

  Mix flour, cornmeal, eggs, salt, pepper, and garlic powder in mixing bowl.  Add enough beer, 
mixing thoroughly, to get the consistency of a thick pancake mix.  Pour batter over shrimp or 
fish and let marinate for an hour or two and deep fry at 370 degrees.  Consistent hot grease will 
float the shrimp or fish in a very short time.  Drop shrimp or fish into hot grease, one at a time, 
to prevent them from sticking together.

  2 eggs
  1/2 tsp. salt
  1/4 c. corn meal

and scallops or any other seafood.
