Lulu's Bacon-Roasted Almonds

2 cups roasted almonds (16-oz. bag)
2 strips bacon
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. sugar (you can use 1 tsp. honey or agave nectar instead)
A pinch of pepper

Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees.Cook two strips of bacon in a frying pan until they seem crispy. Take out of pan and drain on paper towel.

Put almonds into a bowl and mix with the bacon grease. Give them a good stir and then spread on to a cookie sheet. Bake for 5 to 7 minutes.

Mix sugar, salt and pepper together in a separate bowl.

Take the almonds out of the oven and place in a brown paper bag (shopping or lunch bag works great). Hold the top of the bag closed and shake, shake, shake. The grocery bag will absorb any extra grease.

Take the coated almonds out of the bag and place in a mixing bowl. Crumble the bacon into bits and add to nuts. Then, add the mixture of sugar, salt and pepper. Ta da! Put the nuts in to a serving bowl and watch them disappear.

Tip: To make the day-of preparations easy, you can make the Bacon Roasted Almonds a few days before and store them in a Tupperware container.
