I've loved my aunt's crispy-coated bacon ever since I was a child. Now I've shared the super simple recipe with my own children. We still enjoy a big panful every Christmas morning—and on many other days throughout the year! —Brenda Severson, Norman, Oklahoma

  • 1/2 cup evaporated milk
  • 2 tablespoons ketchup
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • Dash pepper
  • 18 bacon strips (1 pound)
  • 3 cups crushed cornflakes


  1. Preheat oven to 375°. In a large bowl, combine milk, ketchup, Worcestershire sauce and pepper. Add bacon strips, turning to coat. Dip strips in crushed cornflakes, patting to help coating adhere. Place bacon on 2 racks; place each rack on an ungreased 15x10x1-in. baking pan. Bake until golden and crisp, 25-30 minutes, rotating pans halfway through baking.
