Gyro Seasoned Bacon.
We’re big gyro fans here at Bacon Today. And so we thought, why not make gyro-seasoned bacon? This bacon will be devoured by fans of gyros and fans of Greek and Mediterranean cooking. Sub fresh herbs if you have them. You can eat this bacon on its own, add it to a Greek salad, or make a Gyro Bacon Pita BLT.
1 package of thick-cut bacon
1.5 teaspoon garlic powder or 3 crushed garlic cloves
1 teaspoon dried thyme
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1 teaspoon dried rosemary
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1.5 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
In a small bowl, whisk together garlic, thyme, oregano, rosemary, olive oil, lemon juice, salt, and pepper.
Line a edged baking sheet with foil. Lay out the bacon strips onto the sheet and coat each strip with the spice blend. Place the baking sheet in the oven. Heat oven to 375 degrees and cook for 17-20 minutes while the oven heats up. When the bacon is done cooking, take out the baking sheet and transfer the bacon strips to a paper towel-lined plate to drain excess oil.
