Candied Brown Sugar Bacon

A fantastic bacon for a special occasion or any day!  With brown sugar caramelized on the bacon and a tiny hint of heat, this is sure to please.

Candied Brown Sugar Bacon
8 slices thick cut bacon
½ cup packed brown sugar
¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper

Preheat oven to 375°.  In a medium size bowl add brown sugar and cayenne pepper.  Combine with a fork.


One slice at a time, using your hands cover bacon in sugar mixture until well coated and lay onto broiler pan.

Put pan on top shelf in oven and bake until crisp.  Approximately 15-20 minutes.

  1. You are evil. I might need to make this. Soon...

  2. Candied bacon is the best. Even when I'm just pan-frying turkey bacon I throw a little brown sugar on the slices. Makes all the difference!

  3. Candied bacon is like crack! Great now I'm going to obsess over it until I go and buy some bacon & make it myself :) That's not a bad thing, either!

  4. Evil! I didn't need ANOTHER reason to make some bacon... but this did it for me. :) Love!

  5. Hey chickie, I was wondering if you could make me exactly two slices of this and then I'll come pick it up? I don't dare make it for myself, but I am sorely tempted! The bacon in the fridge is calling to me.

  6. I have tried making this but my sugar all burns off. Help what am I doing wrong. Going to try again. Have to say your recipes are the best. Can't wait for my cook book. Thank-You.
