3827. CARAMELIZED NECTARINES with BACON

Servings: 2-4


2 slices bacon
2 nectarines
¼ cup sugar

Preheat oven to 500º F. Slice bacon in half length-wise, so the strip is half as wide, then dice. In a medium frying pan over medium-low heat, add diced bacon and sauté for about 4 minutes, or until nearly cooked. Do not cook completely. Remove bacon to a paper towel-lined plate to absorb the grease. Pat the bacon as dry as possible. Once dried from the grease, chop bacon into very small pieces. Set aside. Slice your nectarines in half and remove the pits. Place in a medium-sized oven-safe pan or dish. Sprinkle sugar onto nectarines. Put in oven for one minute. Take pan out of the oven, sprinkle bacon onto each nectarine, and top with more sugar (this is the caramelized bacon part!) Place back in oven for about 5 minutes or until sugar is melted and bacon is fully cooked. Top with ice cream.
