PREPARATION:
Begin by preparing your Millionaire's Bacon. Whisk brown sugar, pepper, cayenne, syrup and water in a large mixing bowl. Using gloved hands, drag each slice of bacon through the mixture, gently scraping off any excess. Next, line a cookie tray with parchment paper and a baking rack. Lay coated slices of bacon on top of baking rack. Bake bacon in an oven preheated to 325 degrees for 20 to 25 minutes, rotating the tray every 5 minutes. If you have a convection oven, set the fan to low. Remove from the oven and let cool for 5 minutes. While bacon cools, toast bread. Once toasted, lay 4 slices of bacon on one piece of bread. Top with iceberg lettuce. Top lettuce with two slices of tomato. Sprinkle tomatoes with salt and pepper. Spread 1 TBL of mayo on remaining slice of bread and crown sandwich so that mayo sits on top of tomatoes. Prepare to have your mind blown.

Honey Baked Ham and Pea Carbonara

Is there anything better than cheesy pasta? Only one thing comes to mind. Cheesy pasta with ham. This is a fun, authentic, and surprisingly easy recipe for your leftover Honey Baked Ham.

INGREDIENTS:

  • Spaghetti (Dried) - 1 LB
  • Honey Baked Ham
  • 6-8 OZ CUT INTO CUBES OR STRIPES
  • Eggs - 2 WHOLE EGGS PLUS 6 YOLKS
  • Parmigiano-Reggiano Cheese (Parmesan Cheese)
  • 1/2 CUP
  • Olive Oil- 3 TBL DIVIDED
  • Peas- 6 OZ
  • Freshly Ground Black Pepper
  • 1 TSP
  • Salt- TO TASTE


PREPARATION:
Begin by bringing a medium-sized pot of salted water to a boil. The size of the pot is important. It needs to be big enough to accommodate your pasta, yet small enough to allow a large metal mixing bowl to rest on top of it. Once the water is boiling, add the peas and cook for 2 min. Use a skimmer and remove peas and put to the side. Alternatively, microwave the peas until done and set aside. Add pasta and cook until al dente, 8-9 minutes. Concurrently, while waiting for your water to boil and your peas and pasta to cook, heat 2 TBL of olive oil in a large pan over medium heat. Add Honey Baked Ham and cook until ham begins to color and look crispy on the edges, 5-6 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside. In a large, heatproof, metal mixing bowl whisk together eggs, cheese, and black pepper. At this point, it should be almost time to drain your pasta. Remove al dente pasta from cooking water with tongs and pasta fork. Remove 1/2 Cup pasta water from pot and set aside. Add pasta to pan with ham and oil. Drizzle with remaining 1 TBL of olive oil, add cooked peas, and let cool slightly. Leave pasta water in pot and return to boil. Add pasta, ham with oil, and cooked peas to bowl containing egg and cheese mixture. Add 1/2 Cup of pasta water to bowl. Stir well to combine ingredients. Now for the fun part. Set the mixing bowl over the pot of boiling pasta water. You want it to rest on top of the pot. The bowl should not be touching the water. If it does, you need either a bigger bowl or a smaller pot. Once bowl is resting on pot, begin stirring ingredients. The heat from the boiling water will gently cook the sauce. It will begin to thicken to a creamy consistency as it cooks. You will know it's done when the pasta begins to leave trails of sauce on the bowl. Once done, remove from heat, season with salt if necessary, top with more grated cheese, pepper, and serve immediately.
