This is an incredible way to make candied bacon, and it is delicious in a sandwich. I plan to experiment more with my pig candy, honey style!

Honey-candied Bacon & Lettuce Sandwich by David Guas

Recipe created for the National Honey Board by Chef David Guas – Bayou Bakery, Coffee Bar & Eatery

This “HBL” sandwich is good just as-is, or make your own version with slices of ripe tomato or smoked turkey. The honey-glazed bacon is so good you’ll want to make extra just to snack on!

Makes 4 sandwiches

2 tablespoons plus 1 teaspoon honey, divided
1 teaspoon hot water
8 strips bacon
¼ cup mayonnaise
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
4-8 leaves butter lettuce or romaine hearts
4 long potato rolls


Preheat oven to 350°F. In a small bowl, mix 2 tablespoons of the honey with the hot water until combined. Lay bacon on a baking sheet in one layer and place in oven for 10 minutes. Drain off fat and brush bacon with honey mixture. Bake for 5-6 minutes more or until crisp.

In a small bowl, mix together mayonnaise, mustard and 1 teaspoon honey.

Cut each roll in half horizontally and spread both cut sides with mayonnaise mixture. Place 1 or 2 lettuce leaves on bottom of roll, top with 2 strips bacon and close with top of roll.
