Nuts about bacon!

It's been a while since I created something, so tonight I was thinking about bacon, and nuts.  I've done bacon popcorn so why not bacon almonds?

I started with plain almonds


a bit of chopped bacon


and a cookie sheet covered with a silpat mat


I rendered the bacon down, and got it almost completely done before I added some brown sugar, smoked sea salt, sweet smoked paprika and a bit of garlic powder and of course the almonds!


I mixed it up all good and spread it out on the mat


and put it in the oven at 300, for 20 minutes (stirring every 5)


Once they are done, let them cool, and put in an airtight container, and enjoy!
