The secret to preparing these candied soldados, or soldiers, so that the bacon is crisp rather than chewy is to slow-roast the bacon in a low oven for up to an hour. Be patient; the result is worth the wait! At our house we ration out the bacon equally to each family member before digging into the eggs to avoid any arguments. Keep this dish in mind as a starter, snack, or even for lunch alongside mixed salad greens. On their own, the candied-bacon soldados make a great hors d’oeuvre. Click here for recipe.
