Expert Tips

Praline most commonly refers to pecans or almonds coated with caramelized sugar. This treat is thought to have originated from Louisiana where spices are not an uncommon addition to this sweet, crunchy delight.

Light or dark brown sugar can be used in this recipe. The dark brown sugar will give the bacon a deeper, more caramelized flavor.
