Grilled Back Bacon on a Bun with Maple Jack Sauce
Who says you can't have Jack Daniels with breakfast? It's five-o-clock somewhere right? This delicious grilled back bacon sandwich is the perfect way to start your day. Back bacon is the most Canadian bacon you can get. John Candy and Michael Moore made a movie about Canadian bacon, okay it has nothing to do with back bacon but it is worth a watch if you like to laugh. Recipe courtesy of Ted Reader for Jack Daniel's
Grilled Back Bacon On a Bun with Maple Jack Sauce
- 16 slices Canadian peameal bacon or back bacon
- 1/2 cup Jack Daniel's Tennessee Whiskey
- 1/2 cup cold water
Maple Jack Grilling Sauce
- 1/2 cup maple syrup
- 1/4 cup honey
- 1/4 cup Jack Daniel's Tennessee Whiskey
- 1/4 cup grain mustard
- 1 Tbsp prepared yellow mustard
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 2 tsp chopped fresh sage
- Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
- 2 cups shredded white cheddar cheese
- 4 Kaiser rolls, sliced
- 4 tsp mayonnaise
- 1 red onion, thinly sliced
- 1 tomato, sliced into 4 thick rounds
Assemble your ingredients - don't forget your honey bear.
In a bowl, whisk together the maple syrup, honey, Jack Daniel's, mustard, garlic and sage.
Remove peameal bacon from Jack Daniel's/water marinade, discarding left over marinade. Grill bacon for 2 minutes per side, basting liberally with maple Jack grilling sauce, until cooked through and tender.
Turn heat to low and brush each slice of peameal one more time. Sprinkle each slice of peameal with shredded cheddar cheese.
Close lid for 1-2 minutes allowing the cheese to soften. Stack'em four slices high and serve on toasted Kaiser rolls with mayonnaise, red onion and tomato.
