Orange-Glazed Canadian Bacon Recipe

Instead of serving the usual bacon, I like to prepare this recipe that calls for Canadian bacon instead. It's a special brunch recipe that's always well liked. —Sue Draheim
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Bake: 25 min. YIELD:6-8 servings

Ingredients

  • 1-1/4 pounds Canadian bacon
  • 1-1/2 cups orange juice
  • 6 tablespoons brown sugar, divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cardamom
  • 1/4 teaspoon coarsely ground pepper
  • 3 bay leaves

Directions

  • 1. In an 11-in. x 7-in. baking pan coated with cooking spray, arrange bacon in two rows, overlapping the slices.
  • 2. In a small saucepan, combine the orange juice, 4 tablespoons brown sugar, mustard, cardamom and pepper until blended. Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring frequently. Boil for 1 minute. Pour over bacon; arrange bay leaves on top.
  • 3. Bake, uncovered, at 325° for 20-25 minutes. Discard bay leaves and all but 1/4 cup pan juices. Sprinkle remaining brown sugar over bacon.
  • 4. Broil 4 in. from the heat for 3-5 minutes or until bacon is glazed and bubbly. Serve immediately. Yield: 6-8 servings.
