COUNTRY FRIED BACON
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons ground black pepper
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 cupbuttermilk or sour milk*
2 tablespoons milk
6 slices thick-cut bacon
Peanut oil or vegetable oil for frying
In a shallow dish combine flour, pepper, salt, and garlic powder. Combine buttermilk and milk in a second shallow dish. 2.
Cut bacon in half crosswise; separate slices. Working with one piece at a time, coat bacon in flour mixture, shaking off excess. Coat with buttermilk mixture; coat in flour mixture again, adding additional flour, if needed. 3.
Line a baking sheet with paper towels. In a Dutch oven heat 1-1/2 inches oil over medium heat to 350 degrees F. Fry bacon in batches about 4 minutes or until golden and crisp, turning once halfway through cooking. Drain on paper towels. Serve warm with country style cream gravy for dipping.
