Candied Bacon Recipe

Candied Bacon


1 pound thinly sliced bacon

1/2 cup brown sugar

1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper

How to make Candied Bacon

Peheat the oven to 375 degrees.

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Lay the bacon out on the parchment and bake for 10 minutes, the bacon should be partially cooked, but not yet crisp.

Take the bacon out of the oven and coat one side of the bacon with the sugar-pepper mixture and return to the oven for about 5 more minutes.

The sugar should be caramelized and the bacon should be crisp.  When the bacon is cool enought to handle, carefully lit onto a cooling rack, serve warm or at room temperature. 
This holds well for a couple of hours.

    oh man this sounds sinful... but so good. I imagine it's more something that you put into other dishes rather than something you eat on its own? if so, what's it good in?

    Thanks Yongfook, it is great on its own as party food with a strong cocktail like a martini. It is also good on cheeseburgers.
