Crispy Deep Fried Bacon

3 eggs
1/2 cup milk
1 pound thick sliced bacon, cut in half
3 cups all-purpose flour
salt and pepper to taste
2 cups vegetable oil for frying

Whisk together the eggs and milk in a bowl until smooth. Separate the bacon strips, and soak in the milk mixture for 30 minutes.
    
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Heat oil in deep skillet to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
    
Whisk together the flour, salt, and pepper in a separate bowl. Remove the bacon from the egg mixture, and toss with the flour to coat. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil.
    
Fry the bacon strips 3 to 5 slices at a time until golden brown, about 4 minutes. Drain on a paper towel-lined plate. Once all of the bacon has cooked, place onto the prepared baking sheet, and bake in the preheated oven until crispy, about 7 minutes.
