There are few things in life more deletable than the smell of honey bacon in the oven. It smells divine, and you can easily pick out different flavors like applewood smoked wood, perfectly caramelized sugar, and roasting pork.

Honey Bacon Ingredients

As the name of the recipe suggests, you only need two simple ingredients to follow this recipe: eight thick slices of bacon and three tablespoons of raw honey.

Bacon: I suggest thick cut, applewood smoked bacon! If you haven’t had a high quality applewood smoked bacon yet, you’re truly missing out. With that being said, any bacon will work for this honey bacon recipe :)

Honey: All-natural, high quality honey like Manuka honey will work so much better with this oven-baked honey bacon, but all honey works. Just make sure it’s authentic! Believe it or not, fake honey is everywhere and there’s nothing like real, natural honey.
