Honey roast streaky bacon

Serves 4

1 800g whole piece of smoked streaky bacon, skinless
200g runny honey

  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C.
  2. Put the piece of bacon on to a baking tray and cover with the runny honey.
  3. Place into the oven and set a timer for 10 minutes. After 10 minutes baste the bacon with the honey and put it back in the oven and reset the timer for another 10 minutes. Repeat the basting and put back into the oven. Set the timer for five minutes and repeat the process. The longer you cook it for the more change you have of burning it so remember to use the timer.
  4. Keep cooking the bacon until the honey is thick and has glazed the bacon all over. It will take about 45-50 minutes. Remove from the oven; take out of the tray and leave to rest on a chopping board.
