Tempura Bacon

1 12-2 cups flour
12 teaspoon garlic powder
12 teaspoon onion powder
12 teaspoon salt
14 teaspoon white pepper
12 teaspoon smoky paprika
14 teaspoon cayenne powder
1 lb sliced bacon, slices halved for easier handling
1 large onion, cut into chunks
oil (for frying)


Combine first 7 ingredients (through cayenne powder) and mix well. Fry bacon halfway to your liking. Heat about 1/2 inch of oil in large skillet to 350F. Dust bacon and onion chunks with seasoned flour, shake off excess (I use a mesh colander) and place in heated oil, being careful not to crowd, which lowers the heat and allows too much oil to soak into what youre frying. Fry to your desired doneness - (This is so subjective, Im going to leave it up to you) golden brown works for me. Not just for breakfast, consider also using as a garnish for a steak or on a bed of warm, braised brussels sprouts tossed in garlic and mustard.
