"Battered and fried bacon that is even better after cooking in the oven for 7 minutes. My husband and I saw the idea of fried bacon on the travel channel where they just battered and fried it and we decided to make it. It was so good. But then we cooked in the oven and it was even better. Serve with white gravy and it is a heart attack waiting to happen but tastes so good!"

  1. Whisk together the eggs and milk in a bowl until smooth. Separate the bacon strips, and soak in the milk mixture for 30 minutes.
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Heat oil in deep skillet to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  3. Whisk together the flour, salt, and pepper in a separate bowl. Remove the bacon from the egg mixture, and toss with the flour to coat. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil.
  4. Fry the bacon strips 3 to 5 slices at a time until golden brown, about 4 minutes. Drain on a paper towel-lined plate. Once all of the bacon has cooked, place onto the prepared baking sheet, and bake in the preheated oven until crispy, about 7 minutes.

Tastes just like country fried steak! So so good! We did ours in a deep fryer and there was no need to put it in the oven after cooking.

This dish was a big hit...not at all greasy like I thought it might be. Mine was pretty crispy after frying, so I only baked it 3 or 4 minutes. Super good!!

This was just great! The only bacon I had was Maple flavored, One pound was scarfed down in nothing flat. I took them for appetizers. Great hit. Thanks for the recipe. Next time I will make two ...

Absolutely scary good. Beware arteries!

Did not bake, but otherwise followed recipe to the letter. A huge hit with my friends.

well it looked better than it tasted. I found that the bacon flavor was gone and all you tasted was batter. My kids, who absolutely love bacon, didn't care for it either. Maybe it's just that...

It was ok, but it tasted like steak, it wast to good.
