Honey Sriracha Grilled Bacon. That's right! You can grill bacon! Check out the recipe on Shutterbean.com!

Was flipping through an issue of Bon Appetit while I was on the airplane a few weeks ago and I saw a picture of bbq’ed bacon and my mind exploded. I hadn’t ever thought of grilling bacon! The best part? You don’t have to worry about your house smelling like bacon for a week.

But we don’t just make bacon…we coat the bacon in a honey lime soy sriracha glaze, skewer them up and toss them on the grill.

When that’s all said and done, we pull them off the bbq, top with toasted sesame seeds, drizzle some sriracha on top for the ones who love SPICY things and we finish with a generous sprinkle of fresh chopped cilantro.

I mean we are GRILLING BACON HERE PEOPLE. This is amazing.

Let’s gather our ingredients:

First we make the glaze.

Then we toss the bacon in it. Let it sit in the fridge for about a half hour.

It’s easier to thread the bacon through a skewer if it is cold.

I like using metal skewers so I don’t have to worry about them catching on fire.

You just have to worry about them being super hot so watch out.

It’s almost a start to a bacon fried rice situation.

Honey Sriracha Grilled Bacon

serves 2-4

  • 1 8oz. package bacon (about 8 slices)
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce (use GF tamari for GF)
  • 2 teaspoons sriracha sauce
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon toasted sesame oil
  • toasted sesame seeds, for garnish
  • fresh cilantro, for garnish

Preheat grill to a medium-high heat.

Whisk honey, soy sauce, sriracha, lime juice, garlic, and sesame oil together in a medium bowl. Place strips of bacon in the glaze and coat evenly. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes. Skewer two slices of the glazed bacon onto each metal skewer, making sure to pierce the meatier part of each piece rather than the fat.

Place skewers on the grill. Keep an eye on them and turn them every so often. Cook until bacon is nicely crisped, about 10-15 minutes. Pull skewers off the grill and serve hot.

Alternately, you can do this on a broiling pan in an oven. Turn the broiler on HIGH and broil for about 3-4 minutes on all sides, or until bacon is fully cooked.

    This is perhaps one of my favorite things ever. I adore the egg idea (but I adore eggs with all things). Also, I’m thinking of grilling pineapple and shrimp, and serving the bacon with that. 😀

    Oh wow, just wow. Also, thanks for the tip on Trader Joe’s frozen rice – perfect! I was reluctant to try it after one disastrous episode with uncle ben’s microwave rice (what is that weird flavor??) but I’ll be keeping the TJ’s in the freezer now for these evenings when I don’t have 45 minutes to wait for brown rice to cook… = )

    Tracy – any issues with major flare-ups because of the bacon fat?

    • Tracy

      I kept an eye on it. I mean, you can definitely get a flare up if you’re not paying attention.

  • Shawna

    I would totally eat this for breakfast! It would be good over polenta or grits. Wait, bacon is great with anything!

  • Kelley

    I am definitely putting this glaze on salmon. Yes? YES!
